SK: Hello and goodbye! This is the very last day of CoLab. (aaaah sound effect)
MH: But that doesn’t mean we don’t have a jam-packed show for you today.
WH: That’s right! Today we’re going everywhere: Kansas; South Africa; Taiwan and the circus.
SK: We’ve really pushed the boat out – literally.
MH: Let’s kick proceedings off with Build Your Own Sound.
