Carl thinks he's pretty good at spotting when someone is telling a lie. But is he? We think one of the reasons Carl is enjoying the podcast, Pants on Fire, is because it allows him to test out his lie detection skills. Pants on Fire is a quiz show with a difference, with each episode focusing on something interesting like robots, or bats or dancing or mobile devices. One of the grown up "experts" on each show is telling you lies and so you and a young guest need to work out who is fibbing and who isn't. Have a listen to Pants on Fire see what you think.
Matt was so excited when he bought two pet fish and named them Bucket and Spade. It wasn't long though before one of those fish got sick. Very sick. The pet shop said he needed special chemicals for the water, so he spent a lot of money to make things better. Sadly, things didn’t improve for Bucket. Or was it Spade? Anyway, did Matt do the right thing for his fish? And is a fish’s life as important as other types of pets?
