If you like rambling, irreverent nonsense, this is the podcast for you! Half philosophy, half jokes. Actually, what DO you like? We should have checked with you first.

Episode 113: My Brother And Me

Thank you, devoted listeners, and welcome to our informal fifth anniversary. On today's show, we're delving into the mailbag to help out some of you with your (mostly bodily function-related) issues, but we've also got some good good space bants in there too for you highbrow types. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Not enough poop talk.
  • Only three audio jingles when there was space for more.
  • The wingspan of a wandering albatross does NOT reach 12 metres.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 112: Salaam

Hello friends. It's been a wee while since we've last spoken, but there's been things happening. In this episode, Nick talks through his experience being in Christchurch during the terrorist attack, and Michael tries to guess how much Owen Wilson is worth. Something for everyone! This episode's mistakes include:

  • A lot of single-sided storytelling
  • Attempts to lighten difficult mood
  • Poop talk
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies

Kia kaha.

Episode 111: The P Word

Hello friends, we have some interesting talking for you in tonight's episode. We tackle George Pell, Michael Jackson, and R. Kelly, and the surrounding furore about their actions. Plus, we learn about racist AI, and then bro out a little at the end. It's a pretty good one and I think you'll like it. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Perfect audio, leaving me nothing to complain about in these notes.
  • No curry facts.
  • An embarrassing mispronunciation of camaraderie.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 110: Good Grief

Blessings be upon you, fine listener, for life is short and you, also, are short. On today's episode we're reflecting on our own mortality in the wake of a wake, and then cross over to the other side in a brand new segment. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Variant audio quality again goddamn it.
  • Unreasonable expectations of extra work in the edit suite.
  • No answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 109: I Agree

TGIF, am I right? And TGIDF, too, because we've got a brand new episode landing right in your feeds, right now. This is a bit of a catch-all episode, with some discussion of human unity, a double dose of Science News, and some wide-ranging chat about smoking, fast food, and the long-awaited kangaroo story. So sit back, order some takeaway, and kick the weekend off right. This episode's mistakes include:

  • A luxuriously loose amble from topic to topic.
  • A truly baffling mispronunciation toward the end.
  • Attempting to induce the listeners to join a religion.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 108: Monsters, Inc.

Sit back, relax, and pipe a bit of this hot audio sauce right down your ear tubes. We're back and better than ever, literally. Now that Michael has actually turned on his new microphone, this is officially the Best Sounding Episode Ever. And what a week to debut, with a bit more Louie follow-up and a discussion about the most dangerous companies in the world. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Nothing. This is episode is perfect.
  • It is impossible to describe Episode 108 as anything other than a masterclass in the audio medium, destined to be looked back on by future generations as a pinnacle of early 21st century culture.
  • Okay, yes, Michael didn't know what thrush is.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 107: Unlucky Louie

Happy new year, and what better place to start things off than with a discussion about Louis C.K.'s return to the spotlight and most recent controversial set. It's possibly the most focused we've ever been, which is kind of astonishing. Hope you're doing well too, by the way. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Some fuzz on Michael's end due to new mic setup and a roaring laptop fan.
  • Minimal seggies but huge cliffhanger.
  • Two hours of fucking around on Australian internet to get this shit uploaded. 🤬
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 106: Would You Rather?

As we close in on closing out the show for the year, come along with us on a loose and lightweight episode full of merriment and spirits. We were in the same location again so the episode is slightly messier and slightly drunker, but hey, it's the holidays. This episode's mistakes include:

  • In-room audio, but it's actually pretty damn good.
  • A minor moment of self-reflection, but then we get to topics with wide appeal (toothpaste).
  • Not enough time devoted to certain topics (toothpaste).
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 105: So You Think You Can Self-Aware?

What am I doing? If you've ever wondered that, congratulations, you're doing better than many. We put the Dunning-Kruger effect and the perils of self-awareness under a microscope to see how people can be so bad and yet so confident. It takes some twists and turns but it ends with Joke Time (new segment). This episode's mistakes include:

  • Some unusual vibes at the start that level out over time.
  • A couple interesting tangents that leave behind the original topic.
  • Obvious edit points when Michael compliments Nick.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 104: A Quest Called Tribe

Would you visit a remote Indian island to convert an untouched neolithic tribe to Christianity? This guy did. Not me, obviously, another guy. In the story. We talk about it. Anyway, apologies for any spluttering  in this one as we were both getting over a cold, but for the most part I think we've edited it out. (The royal 'we', of course.) This episode's mistakes include:

  • Nasal tones and the odd odd pause.
  • 8% less funny, 15% more wisdom.
  • No welcome to the next one hundred.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
