Jon Holmes dips a radio sieve in the stream of public consciousness from the 'Have Your Say' and comments pages on the worldwide web to pan for comedy gold.
Twitter, radio phone-ins, newspaper blogs and all manner of multi-platform outlets offer the general public opportunities to vent their views on global and local proceedings. Jon and guests will circle the globe, collecting the thoughts, hopes, dreams and completely odd offerings of the opinion-spewing public in a quest to find out whether the people really know best.
