What does it taste like? 

- Intense, pristine sauvignon blanc from a very favourable vintage. Bright, vibrant wine with passion fruit, capsicum, lemongrass and lime/citrus flavours. Refined win...

BMW recently tried (and failed) to make you pay to access CarPlay or Android Auto. They also charge you mon...

    No, I haven’t bought a new air fryer.

    Tempted as I might have been, I’ve resisted the urge to upgrade my TV.

    So far, I’ve only bought two things in the Black Friday sales and I think even the most staunch anti-capitalists would have to agree, neither could be deemed particularly luxurious: a compost bin for my kitchen, and a shower squeegee.

    Woo-hoo!

    It’s one of those curious little quirks of 2022 that this year’s Black Friday sh...

      The Piketon Massacre

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
