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 149: Get Out

'allo 'allo 'allo, wot do we 'ave 'ere 'en? A brand-spankin' new ep'a Deep Fought, ripe fo' the pickin'. Dem scallywags Micky and the Chief are up t'no good, or my name ain't bob's yer uncle. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Recording in the initial frenzy of the Adelaide lockdown, but before the twist ending.
  • Five terrific minutes we spent scheduling the 150th episode left on cutting room floor.
  • Forgot to promo ShaveMyBalls.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 148: Hail To The Thief

What a world. Hi everyone, and welcome to a new era/the old era but longer. It's our election spectacular, and yes, we recorded it before a final decision was made. But that just makes it fun! This episode's mistakes include:

  • Already being out of date.
  • Spending too long on the opening act and holding up the main event.
  • Wahl has not returned our calls.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 147: Power And Money

Ka-ching! That's the sound of us making bank, and it's sort of the topic at hand in this loosey goosey ep. We're talking billionaires, we're talking elections, we're talking Christmas, and we're talking piss. The big four. This episode's mistakes include:

  • No resolution to Michael's exciting news cliffhanger.
  • Subtle foreshadowing.
  • Biting the sponsor hand that feeds us.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 146: The Walking Dead

The President of the United States has a deadly virus and this isn't even a Michael Bay film. You know what we're talking about this week, as we do a deep dive into the implications and actions of this horse actually loose in a hospital. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Secrecy without explanation.
  • Going extremely into the weeds with the minutiae of the American electoral system.
  • Forgot to mention manscaping.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 145: Daylight Slayings

Sorry for the wee delay, but Nick has been a little under the weather this week and started slacking off. It's a nice and fun ramble today with an earth-shattering scientific pronouncement, a Weird News™, a Science News™, and even a Recommendation Engine™ to cap things off. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Aggressive energy.
  • Not being able to edit out all the coughing.
  • Literally just spent a minute trying to remember the phrase 'writer's block', which is pretty on the nose.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 143: Animal Instinct

Welcome to our dozens of new, parsnip-loving listeners. This episode talks a lot about everyone's favourite hip new veggie, the 'snip (parsnip).

  • Top-loading all our best content (parsnips).
  • Unable to see picture of parsnips while listening due to audio format.

Episode 142: Great Grief

My, you step away from the world for a month and look what happens. Nick is back from making a TV show, and Michael is back in Melbourne lockdown again. It's a big catch up episode with a lot of filmmaking discussion, so we won't hold you up with any more nonsense here. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Forgot to discuss continuity.
  • Michael's new boom arm made the audio worse.
  • Nick is hot now, deal with it.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 141: That’s Show Business!

Roll up, roll up, for the show of the century! It's a loosey-goosey chat today about everything from the return of lockdown in Melbourne, to the debut of Hamilton on Disney+, to a discussion of body temperature. There's also a bit of an update on 'Good Grief', Nick's streaming series that will soon start filming, making this the last pod you will have for about a month. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Michael buying himself a boom arm.
  • The odd sniffle from a recovering Nick.
  • Maybe it was unfair to lump the boom arm in as a mistake, it could be quite good?
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 140: Delete Your History

Hello and welcome to another juicy discussion on the state of the world, as we dive into the controversy around the destruction of statues. Is this revisionist history, or something more noble? This spins off into a discussion about old comedy shows pulling problematic episodes, as well as a nice bit of Weird News in the end. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Accidentally proving Michael right in his accurate predictions of the show's agenda.
  • Iffy approximations of others' more articulate arguments.
  • Improper shout-out procedure.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
