Somali pirates, Sri Lankan battles and capybara meat in roquefort sauce

I was a guest on the BBC World Service’s The World Today programme this morning. It’s an eclectic news show which ranges from Somali pirates, to the Sri Lankan government’s bloody new assault on the Tamil Tigers, and the taste of capybara meat (a clandestine delicacy in Venezuela apparently, although the BBC’s reporter sampled it in a roquefort sauce, which strikes me as a terrible mistake.) You can listen here. The other guest is a most sympathetic fellow, Kenyan journalist Salim Lone.
