Enid Blyton, & Modern Family

This week on Diff'rent Strokes...


Who grew up reading The Famous Five or The Magic Faraway Tree series? Jade takes a walk down memory lane tonight with Enid Blyton's books.

Blyton is one of Britain's best selling children book authors of all time, reportedly selling over 600 million books worldwide. Her place in pop culture remains undisputed...


Question? Dave jumps on the Formspring bandwagon only to find he's too ready to offer answers to questions no one's asked! basically allows its users to set up a profile where anyone on the interwebs can post them a question anonymously.

Ask Jade and Dave a question here.


Modern Family is a mockumentary comedy TV series that follows the lives of three American families - a "traditional" nuclear family, an interracial family and a gay family.

Jade will talk about the interesting dynamics between the characters on the show and its themes of bridging generational, cultural and social gaps.

Diff'rent Strokes with Jade & Dave
