Where should you turn when faced with a big, philosophical question? The internet, of course. Half philosophy, one third “jokes”, one twelfth science, one twelfth politics, and 100% carefully calculated fractions. That’s the Deep Fought Promise!

Episode 169: I Will Survive

Stop reading this and DUCK! That's a bit of foreshadowing because we talk about ducks in this episode and it seemed like a bit of a light-hearted way to kick off this introduction. In this sassy new ep, we dive into lots of animal news, mortal peril, and some Michael miffs. Something for everyone! This episode's mistakes include:

  • Mars has an atmosphere, it's just not that showy about it.
  • Inappropriate mini-miff to mega-miff ratio.
  • Overly niche Royal Adelaide Show references. 
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 168: March Madness

There's a storm comin', and there ain't nothing you can do to stop it. It's called Bitlyball, and it's sweeping the nation. We're also talking through Melbourne's rough week, from the construction worker protests, to the swarms of police, to the earthquake. And somehow, we make room for a dissection of Joe Rogan AND an exploration of centrism. It's a chock-full episode, so let's dawdle no longer. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Unresolved Charizard cliffhanger.
  • One instance of a misused 'sanctimonious'.
  • Editing out the frantic minute spent mopping up a spilled beer.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 167: The New World Order

Jiminy jillickers, what's that in your ears? It's a new episode of audio podcast, that's what. This week we're going deep on the approach to COVID-19 vaccination rollouts through the lens of a potential unified world government. Plus, Michael has started doping (on multivitamins), Nick's show got picked up, and Charizard is coming for us all. This episode's mistakes include:

  • A lot of fun and games (in the sense of marbles and tiddlywinks).
  • No tasty spoilers.
  • Cliffhanger ending.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 166: Good Things Come To Those That Egg

Hello friends, and particularly those in lockdown here in New Zealand. It's been strange times of late, but we're here to take your mind off things. We're talking about getting jabbed, about migraine solutions, and most importantly, about eggs. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Weird News is Sad News, so be forewarned, and feel free to skip the chapter.
  • Fundamental misunderstandings of how islands work.
  • Missed opportunity to mention how Budapest was once Pest-Buda.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 165: Redemption Arc

Stop what you're doing and look at me! I'm a podcast and I deserve to be listened to! In this ep, we wend our way through some more Recommendation Engine, which leads to a discussion of Matt Damon, which leads into a discussion of cancel culture. And then we cap it all off with a terrific Science News, which you can read here. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Omitting several interesting topics in service of our next episode.
  • Wearing our Mattfleck love on our chest.
  • Buckwild declaration at the very end by Michael.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 164: Grief Counsellor

Good afternoon, and thank you all for coming. We hope you're ready for some commentary, because it's time for a patented Deep Dive™ into Nick's comedy series Good Grief. We're walking through some of the writing process, the creative decisions and challenges, and how it feels to see your words translated into a visual medium. Be aware that we do spoil some character and comedy beats, but it's pretty clearly signposted, and there's still plenty more to enjoy if you want to skip to other chapters for now – including vaxx chat and a Recommendation Engine. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Forgetting many other interesting Good Grief development nuggets.
  • More Skype lag shenanigans. Sigh. 
  • You cannot kill abstract emotional concepts like 'dread'.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 163: House-Trained

Wassup, wonderfuls? We're keeping your ears warm in these wintry months with a fresh new dose of pod, just like grandma used to make. This week, Nick's show Good Grief launched on SBS, but we're saving our discussion of it until you've all had a chance to watch. Instead, it's all about vaccinations, cavepeople, sponsorships, relationship advice, and a brand new segment from Michael - with jingle. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Recorded before we knew about SBS debut/Melbourne lockdown #5.
  • No accompanying visuals for 'What's Under My Desk?'
  • Suspicions of audio tampering.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 162: Panic Stations

Good morrow, ladies and gentleman, and may the gods smile upon you this fine day. We're back with a twofer, in that we tried to record last week but were sabotaged by poor internet and gave up halfway through. As you will see, this results in an episode recorded across a week, with interesting results. This episode's mistakes include:

  • More jokes falling flat than usual due to lag.
  • Nick stumbled over a word once.
  • Bitlyball jingle now too short.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 161: Down In The Dumps

Oi, you there! Put that bagel down – you won't need smoked salmon where you're going! (Audio heaven.) We're talking schoolyard shame, we're talking radio pranksters, we're talking dumpling reviews, and we're talking euthanasia. Something for everyone! This episode's mistakes include:

  • Aperitifs are pre-dinner drinks.
  • Misremembered a key detail about the podcast prank (stay tuned for next ep).
  • 5G and zero-G are different.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
