IN THE STUDIO

Thursday was National Voter Registration Day, with people all around the country being encouraged to ensure they are registered to vote for this May's general election. Hannah went around campus, speaking to SU President Harry Copson and Ben Malone from the Politics Society, about why you should register, whilst also going around campus to see how many of you are registered to vote.

The team in the studio then discussed whether they had registered to vote, and whether in the light of possible fines for those who do not register if registration or even voting itself should be compulsory.

INDIANA Live in Mooch (Session/Interview)

posted 06.02.15 at 1:22am by urn1350.net Web Team

On Monday 2nd February, URN hosted Indiana down at our Students' Union for an exclusive session in Mooch, on the day of her debut album launch. She played five INCREDIBLE songs and now, we're giving you the opportunity to listen to them as much as you want! We think you'll all agree, she is an incredible talent with a phenomenal voice, and the stripped-back session we recorded from the event, we feel, reflects this perfectly! Her album, No Romeo is out now and can be bought from the link at the bottom of the blog!

This session was replayed on URN's very own Under The Radar on Thursday (5th Feb) - make sure you tune in for all the very best in local and university-wide musical talent!

Freeganism - Are student's next?

posted 31.01.15 at 7:50pm by The Pulse

On Wednesday, the Pulse team debated the concept of Freegans. You can find out more about Freegans, who are those who deliberately opt out of societies economic system by getting their food out of supermarket skips and living in a rudimentary lifestyle, here.

IN THE STUDIO

In order to find out how students of Nottingham react to the concept of Freeganism, intrepid Pulse reporter Anna went into Mooch to try and scavenge for some students leftover food, with interesting results...

The team in the studio then debated the story, with opinions mixed over whether this is likely to become a policy adopted by students here in Nottingham!

Super Bowl Special

posted 29.01.15 at 2:44pm by URN Sport

With the Super Bowl taking place at the end of this week, the team from our NFL podcast, 'Turn Down for Watt', took over Tuesday's URN Sport for a Super Bowl special. For an outsider's perspective, Joe joined Calum, Ben and Matt on the show.

They began by discussing deflate-gate, which has taken up plenty of column inches in the build-up to the event.

The panel then looked ahead to the game itself as the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots.

Each of our NFL experts then put their necks on the line with their predictions for Super Bowl XLIX.

Finally, Calum pitted his podcasting regulars Ben and Matt against Joe in a completely fair and impartial quiz.

For more discussion of all the big sports stories of the week tune in to URN Sport every Tuesday from 6-7pm, and for more NFL chat, check out our American Football podcast, Turn Down for Watt, here: http://urn1350.net/podcast/217.
