She's back. The awesome Ashley Colburn (ashleycolburn2018@gmail.com) will have us all up and active with this amazing aerobic workout skill. Guys, if you want to be awesome too it's easily done. Simply send in a demo to robin.christopherson@gmail.com. It's that easy. From that point on, whatever you do, whatever you wear, whatever you say, whatever choices (or cakes) you make, will be awesome. How cool is that?

Similar to one covered oodles of episodes ago - oodles I say - but with some nice, subtle sound-effects. Don't try anything too extraordinarily unusual, though.

One voice to guess each day. Okay, okay - I know you guys know who this guy is. Answers on Twitter using #DTDPod please.

Why not take some serious safety advice from Nicole (who's never actually been to Australia) on which animals to cuddle and which to run away from with some significant speed? Doesn't she sound depressed, though?

Make a few simple choices and see what life has in store in today's positively prophetic skill.

First covered way back in episode 352, this smash of a skill was mentioned in this week's email round Robin from Amazon so I thought I'd give it a whirl once more.

Feel a bit weird about this one guys. Nice sound effects but find the whole premise pretty distasteful. I know, I know - it's just a bit of fun. Think I'm going to avoid this one from now on, though.

Tiffany Black (@1modernmonster on the Twitters) is back. This time she's skillfully sorting syllables with speed and alphabetising (Americanism) initial characters against the clock. You go girl! (Is that what you lovely US-type people say too? And, thinking about it, 'alphabetising' should probably be spelt with a Zed. Er… Zee.)

DTD984 The 3% Challenge

Based upon a Netflix series and opened with "3%", this skill seems pretty sweet. Great audio and a promising premise. Give it a go.

DTD983 Mosquito Repellent

Super short episode today. Turn your Echo into a sophisticated sonic mosquito repelling machine in moments - according to the makers of this skill anyway. We then finish off with a really poor joke which, on reflection, probably won't even make sense unless you appreciate that, here in the UK at least, one could quite easily go out for a nice meal in a pub called something like 'The Rose and Crown'. Listen to the last half of this episode at your own risk.
