Dr Karl Releases his 36th book, "House of Karl's"

In the ruthless pursuit of scientific fact, there is no candidate more formidable than Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.

Power hungry for experimentation, data manipulation and outlandish science propaganda, Dr Karl is Australia's incumbent President of Science.

In House of Karls, he addresses a range of issues and questions: how Politics and Greed are dirtying the purity of Science and why the world's most expensive book costs more than $23 million dollars, but only $4 to post. How real is the Five Second Rule with food? Why does a frog in milk stop it from souring? Why did the Nazis steal the only Space Buddha?

If you would like to meet Dr Karl during his newest book tour, please head to his website and click where is Karl..

Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales Launch New Podcast, "Chat 10, Looks 3"

ABC journalists Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales have launched an independent podcast, complete with A Chorus Line-inspired theme song they have written and sung themselves, with Sales on piano.

They have teamed up to talk about, well just about anything. The pair had spoken about doing something of the sorts for sometime. "And it's an excuse for Salesy to indulge her ridiculously close-to-the-surface obsession with musical theatre," adds Crabb, presenter of Kitchen Cabinet.

In episode one: Crabb and Sales talk about their idols and what it's like to make a fool of yourself when you meet them. Plus, they reveal their secret shameful foods. Tinned smoked oysters, ambrosia salad or perhaps just a bucket of deep-fried chicken?

Annabel Crabb is ABC Online's chief political writer, and columnist for 'The Drum'. She also hosts her own ABC1 political cooking show, Kitchen Cabinet, in which she invites herself around to the homes of federal MPs in search of food and conversation.

Leigh Sales is an award-winning author and journalist at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and currently anchors 7:30pm report on ABC.
