What is Dotpod? It’s a sigh in the dark, a nasty slice from the left side of glory and we know, we know you like it...

Actually It's DOTPOD 4, the alternative chat and music podcast from Run-Riot.com with your hosts Patrick and Emre. Featuring interviews with Vice editor Andy Capper and activist Tamsin Omond plus music from Gabby Young and The Crystal fighters. It's so good we're calling it ECO CRYSTAL VICE & YOUNG.

The Cast:

Featuring two cultural landscapers from different sides of the tracks:

Interview 1: ANDY CAPPER The notorious editor of Vice Uk in a revealing interview about war criminals, the gangsters that funded the early days and why he no longer keeps Thai acid in his desk draw. If you still think Vice is all about pictures of dicks dusted in coke then tune in. Things have moved on.

Interview 2: TAMSIN OMOND When Patrick went on tour with the all female activist group Climate Rush he didn't know what to expect. He found inspiration, he found action, he found lesbian tent sex. He also found himself dumping poo on Jeremy Clarkson's drive. Here their founder and high profile activist Tamsin Omond talks to us about the day she led her group of fearless Eco-zons into manure warfare with Top Gear's king.
