Here’s the 12 seconds or so of audio that podcaster Jesse Brown is probably most famous for:
It was also, coincidentally, the last Search Engine podcast officially funded by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation — an interesting decision, considering that Search Engine made the Best of 2007 list on iTunes and was nominated for two New York Festival Radio Awards.

- A Chinese perspective on China vs. Google;
- The Obama Administration goes offline (?)
