Weekends

If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about people and animals acting badly and the wild happenstance of life. In that spirit each night during the 9 and 10 o’clock hour I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia.(because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.) Here are tonight’s stories:

Police: HOA president stole thousands of dollars from community to buy stamps, lawn equipment

TITUSVILLE, Fla. - Over the course of three years, a former homeowners association president stole $20,000 from the community he served and used the money to expand his stamp collection and buy lawn equipment, according to the Titusville Police Department.

'It's been crazy': Foodies shelling out $30 each for emu eggs

Would you pay $30 for an egg to eat? That is the going rate for emu eggs sold to customers looking for an 'eggstraordinary' omelette. The owner of an emu farm at Toodyay, north-east of Perth, says the business has seen a spike in demand for emu eggs from people looking to mix things up in the kitchen.

Be sure to tune in Monday through Friday nights at 9 and 10pm if you want to play along.
