BI podcast (warning: contains explicit language!)

OK, I'm somewhat biased, but how good is Business Insider Australia these days?

Check out their latest podcast here, where Scutty, Colgo, and The Kouk discuss this week's glitches with the Census, and, among other things, erm, who to follow on Twitter! 

There are even a couple of big shout-outs from Kouk and Scutt for this very blog page between 52 and 55 minutes - click here or the image below.

Business Insider Australia has managed to ramp up their unique audience to beyond 1 million this year, which is an outstanding achievement in a highly competitive space.

h/t to other key cogs in the BI Aus wheel: Greg McKenna for his daily finance and markets analysis (I love these summaries), Simon Thomsen, and Olivia Chang.
