Crave Podcast 55: Cursing is good for you

This week's show is packed with great stories, insightful commentary, and a ****-load of swear words. Don't listen if you're easily offended

The weekend's just around the corner and that means another episode of the Crave Podcast. This week's show is packed with great stories, insightful commentary, and a ****-load of swear words. We've got more bleeps than a Tesco's checkout.

Why are we cursing so much? Because a new study has found that regular use of profanity in the workplace can help relieve feelings of frustration and develop social relationships. It may sound like complete b*******, but wait til you f****** try it. Swearing really is big and clever.

Between curse words, we discuss Microsoft's attempt to patent a new mind-reading technique, and how the company's co-founder Paul Allen is searching for alien life forms. We also go hands-on with the new Porsche phone, a cheap Sharp Blu-ray player, and tell you whether the new Sony Handycam HDR-CX6EK is any good in the bedroom.

We've had enough of typing now, except to say you should download Episode 55 immediately. Post bloody haste. -Rory Reid
