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 59: Just Not Feeling It

Hey hey hey, and welcome back to an eclectic audio experience on this beautiful winter's eve. Today's topics include numbers and if they exist (briefly), the New York Times' relationship quiz, and some deep emotions. We're all over the place. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Wasting a good twelve minutes on a topic we couldn't say anything interesting about (don't worry, I edited it out).
  • Recording one side of the audio in a crowded vegetable market.
  • Forgetting to include the jingle.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 58: Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong

Hey baby. What's up? Look, Michael wanted me to put this up straight away and so if I'm totally honest I'm still kinda intoxicated. This may have had a detrimental effect on the podcast quality. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Uploading while under the influence, and thus not expending the same "quality" "control" as per usual.
  • Lots of Radiohead talk, lots of dating talk (?).
  • Look, sometimes writing these things is harder than you'd think.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 57: The (Late Night) Environment

Just saying it up front, this episode was hard work to edit so I'd appreciate a little appreciation. In this wide-ranging episode, we talk global warming and what we're actually doing to stop it, as well as politics, late night TV hosts and the evolution of cattle. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Trusting Skype to have a decent connection and audio quality, necessitating a mid-show swap to FaceTime.
  • Insulting our only fans, the Spanish spambots that liked our Facebook post.
  • Not having our special celebrity guest join in on the actual discussion... or did he?
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 56: Prove It

Kia ora, and welcome to an ungodly examination of our potential atheist biases. Yes, in that respect it's classic Deep Fought, but this time we might actually have fulfilled our ostensive goals of philosophical debate, which is definitely not classic Deep Fought. So, making progress then. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Occasional, uncharacteristic meanness from Nick for reasons not fully understood by either party.
  • Part of it could be tiredness, but is that really a fair excuse? You can't get away with murder because you were tired. You should have just seen it in yourself and taken steps to prevent further unconscionable action.
  • I guess a small part of me enjoys feeling a degree of superiority over Michael because he's now experiencing some of the isolation and ostracisation I felt upon first moving to New Zealand. Not merely an 'I was right' sentiment, but a small but legitimately vindictive desire to emphasise to him some of the distance that he innocently and non-vindictively demonstrated to me upon my departure. Isn't that awful? To allow myself to reciprocate hurt with hurt?
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 55: Inside Job

Something about this seems fishy. Two podcasts in two weeks? What are they getting at? What I'm getting at is that this week's topic is conspiracy theories and the corporate fat cats on Wall Street who don't want you to hear about them because their diversified portfolios DEPEND on the average joe six pack middle America Christian single parents not knowing that THEY'RE the ones taking the bibles out of our hotel rooms in YET ANOTHER WAR ON CHRISTMAS. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Not registering that domain name before putting the episode up.
  • Unfortunately stumbling into decent audio quality that undercuts Nick's insistence that Michael improve his setup.
  • Creating a tagline for the show after fifty-five episodes that should have been obvious on day one.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 54: Forgive Us

Sorry, who is this? Yes, it's been a long, long while, but there is a new episode of Deep Fought here for you, ready to download. Five months after the last one, but who's counting. Michael's back from overseas, moved to a new city, broken his computer, and Nick's working on a new TV show. But we made the time to catch up and talk about forgiveness, which seems rather apt. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Dodgy audio because Michael's computer is broken and we had to record a FaceTime call to his iPhone.
  • Whiplash subject changes as is to be expected.
  • Offensive irreligiosity on this, the holiest of Sundays.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 53: Broadened Mind

Sorry, we didn't see you there. We're still alive, though you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise. Things, as they say, have been afoot. Apologies. This episode is one that doesn't really cover any topics so much as enable both of us to get back in touch with each other after roughly (exactly) nine weeks. If you're a neglected friend or family member that has also been wondering what we've been up to, you're in luck. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Occasional long pauses where Skype lagged (but surprisingly good audio otherwise).
  • Repetition of a theme.
  • No mention of pachinko, vending machines, or other Japanese cliches.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 52: Learn To Cook

Look at that! Barely two weeks and we're back with another episode, and like most rushed things, it could have used a little more time in the oven. What's that? Kitchen metaphor? Great segue! Is it? Not really, because we're talking about education - what our parents taught us, what we wished we knew, and what schools should be doing. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Low audio from Michael's end, with a slight echo on Michael's end, and tinny mic (on Michael's end).
  • Energy slumps as we were both knackered. Podcasting is hard, guys. 
  • Not enough cooking.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies

Episode 51: That Was Your Toaster

'Allo 'allo, what do we have here? It's a podcast, in case you forgot during our extended absence from the internet. But that was only due to life taking over, and given life is all any of us have, that had to take precedence. Our unreserved apologies. This, episode 51, hopefully signposts a new momentum and rhythm that will see us treading strongly towards our centenary. Plus, new website and new logo colours, but the same heartfelt contemplation. This week, we're talking stress and time, and just generally check back in on each others' lives. Of course, this episode's mistakes include:

  • Audio echo, because of course there is.
  • Poor photoshopping skills on the logo visible when zoomed in.
  • FaceTime used instead of Skype, despite our corporate sponsorship.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 50: Where Am I?

It's here. It's happened. Episode 50. It's strange to look back at our first episode, fifteen or so months ago, and contemplate all the hours it took to get to this. Michael and I send our love and regards to those of you listening - be it still listening, or recently on board - and taking part in what for us has often been more introspective than outwardly concerned. This episode ranges in discussion from robots, to desert island essentials, and then on to happiness, life goals, death, and love. So, business as usual then. And as always, this episode's mistakes include:

  • The now traditional goddamn annoying audio glitches, namely a persistent echo on Michael's end that made us again resort to the lower quality Skype recording track.
  • Not doing a director's commentary over the Twenniversary director's commentary over the first episode.
  • No impression of the week, despite repeated promises.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
