Winners & Losers, The Strokes and Your Old Phone.

This week on Diff'rent Strokes...


Dave checks out the sensational new Australian dramedy Winners & Losers and explains why this homegrown creation is one with international appeal. The series essentially revolves around the friendship and lives of four best gal pals who were high school "losers". The first episode kicks off with their reconnection at a 10-year high school reunion which was hosted by their bitchy oppressor.


Jade checks out The Strokes' much talked about comeback album Angles and discusses their sonics and place in today's indie rock inflected market. The lead single 'Under Cover of Darkness' is already giving us a stir for more.


We're looking at your old mobile phones this week, paying homage to all the functions and features that blew our minds back then. Monophonic ringtones, monochrome screens, Snakes game... buttons? Oh, have we got stories for you.
