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.

Episode 103: Eternal Sunshine

If you could erase someone from your memory, would you do it? And to whom? That's the big question at hand this week, and it's wrapped in talk of the midterm elections and a fascinating nugget of science news. So don't delay, this is one spicy meatball!! This episode's mistakes include:

  • Saving our best segment for last.
  • No tip of the week to help you get through life a little easier.
  • A soupçon of existentialism right in the heart of an otherwise focused episode.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 102: We’ve All Been Punk’d By Adam Sandler

Books. We've all seen them, but are they any good? That's the subject of this episode as we delve into the implications of the saying 'don't judge a book by its cover'. Plus, there are spillages, breaks from reality, and even some sex advice. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Still trying to sort out some audio issues here and there, but it's better than it was.
  • Not getting to listener questions again.
  • Misstating Adam Sandler's age as 51 when he's 52.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 101: Climate Catastrophe

Welcome to the next one hundred, and our brand new look (thanks Sean)! We needed a bit of a nap after the last episode, but now we've woken up to discover that the world is ending in 12 years. So, we had a bit to talk about. Plus, some exciting messages made our way to the mailbag. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Wild audio variation. Sorry, levels were all over the place this time. I tried.
  • Used a lot of power to render out an audio file during a podcast about cutting carbon emissions.
  • Huge cliffhanger left dangling until next time.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 100: Centenniversary

Hello hello, and thank you all! We've hit triple digits and want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to everyone that has come along for the ride across the past four-ish years. We'd also like to welcome the new listeners we've picked up along the way, possibly off the back of an unexpectedly successful dog-related Facebook post (who knew?).

This is a pretty jam-packed episode. There's one of Michael's most amazing stories ever, some gift-giving, and a few fun surprises as well. So as we cross the threshold into the next century, know that this episode's mistakes include:

 

  • Varying audio because Garageband decided to just stop recording Michael a couple of times.
  • A bunch of promised 100th content deferred for time.
  • Tonal whiplash across various segments.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Welcome back as we close in on the end of this first century of Deep Fought. This week we're talking about social media platforms' responsibilities to free speech versus preventing abuse. Plus someone got a job and someone else burns himself live on air. There's SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. The episode's mistakes include:

  • Some odd audio spikes but that just adds to the character.
  • Not running the hand under cold water for long enough.
  • Failing to get across just how batshit some of Alex Jones' conspiracies are.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 97: Laugh Track

Badum tish. That's the sound of another hilarious podcast being uploaded. This week, we're talking about where there are off-limit topics in comedy, and where Seinfeld stands these days. Plus, Nick debuts his new running style and someone weird comes to Michael's house - all in around an hour! This episode's mistakes include:

  • Some faint echoing in the audio here and there. Apologies.
  • No play-at-home maths quiz.
  • Backed the podcast van over a lizard on the way out of the driveway.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 96: Power Pack

Good afternoon, friends and whānau, and welcome back to an easy-listening episode of the pod. On our quest to return to a manageable duration, we're talking power, how people get it, and how they maintain it. Plus, our usual diversions to everything from lobster tattoos to global homogeneity. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Leaving the good stuff to the end.
  • Still not getting it under the hour mark. Maybe next time?
  • Forgot to give third plug to Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp, in cinemas now!
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
