Episode 85 - Power Down

Iain catches Jamie freelancing in the Brainwaves Studio for a very odd charity. With the matter resolved they turn their attention to the news in a fortnight of more bad tidings from China, Unions getting recognized, and Awards coming to fruition. All this, and more, on this episode of Brainwaves.
