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 63: Almost Famous

Hello hello hello, and welcome to another episode of Deep Fought, the world's only internet-based podcast. This week, we try to work out what kind of celebrities we'd be (no no, you're too kind, but we mean outside of the podcast realm). We also talk about goat meat, cheese, films, and Michael genuinely impresses with a mentalism trick. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Surprisingly fewer edits required than Nick implied there would be.
  • Surprisingly decent audio quality for most of the episode.
  • Surprisingly uninteresting mistakes in this bullet list.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 62: Firm Beliefs

Another midweek podcast. What have we become? Too popular and social on weekends, I guess. Today Michael brought a topic to the table - the contrasting calcification of political beliefs between the left and right - and it almost lasted a full episode, so let's all give him a nice pat on the head. This episode's mistakes include:

  • An unconscionably low level of hand washing and general hygiene.
  • A tendency to not keep track of and return to important topics for rebuttal and conclusions, and not just in the normal way.
  • A general aural sense that one side of the conversation was recorded through a mattress.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 61: Deep Waters

Well, forewarning, this one got a little heavy in the middle. Thankfully, it's bookended by some grade A hijinks, and possibly even some shenanigans. This episode's mistakes include:

  • The audible consumption of strudel at the start of the episode.
  • Serious subject matter that doesn't lend itself to much humour for a while.
  • Forgetting to thank this week's sponsor, Nanna Pat's Rat Poison™. Nanna Pat's Rat Poison™: For When You Have Too Many Rats.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 60: Guys’ Choice

Greetings, and welcome back to a bombastic, sixtiversary edition of the podcast. It's been a pleasure to have you along for the ride, and while we didn't get our celebratory suits out again for the record, we did manage to make it special for reasons that will become clear early on. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Interesting audio challenges associated with this particular setup after forgetting how it was done.
  • Didn't thank our sponsor, George Clooney's Science News Presents: Spike TV's Guys' Choice Awards 2016.
  • Going too long, necessitating some seamless, invisible edits by our crack production team.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

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.
