The Attitude Test

The Attitude Test is a weekly program on which we discuss, but often stray from, a given topic. Listeners are very welcome to join in the discussion or raise a topic of their own.

Important note: When using TeamTalk on The Attitude Test, Please ensure that you set TeamTalk to use a feature called Push to Talk. This feature will ensure that you only send audio live to air when you hold down the assigned key, e.g. the Control key. When you release the key, your audio will not be heard by other participants or the listeners. If using Skype, please ensure that you mute your microphone when not contributing to the show. Doing this will ensure that unwanted background noise is not broadcast.

You can participate in Sunday's live edition of the show using Skype at
