1 hour 10 mins - Published Wed, Apr 6, 2011 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Petter Mårtensson

Wednesday came and went, and another podcast was added to the ever-growing collection!

Here’s what we talked about:

  • Do you want a dead mouse wearing pants? Who doesn’t want a dead mouse wearing pants?
  • New ThunderCats trailer
  • Bret McKenzie will play an elf in The Hobbit.
  • Dating in Sweden. The terrible truth.
  • A national survey by the RSPB records a rise in the populations of small birds, including long-tailed tits, goldcrests and coal tits. Arkenor has photographic proof!
  • A drug that makes you a morally upright citizen?
  • … and so much more.


Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website csicon.org (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
