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 138: Dig Doug

G'day g'day, and welcome to our online podcast. This delightful episode covers a lot of ground, from the racist narratives around COVID success stories, to Joe Rogan's Spotify sell-out, to Hannah Gadsby's latest special, 'Douglas'. There's also some swole panic, pillow talk, and a car czar to look forward too, so dig in. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Cutting out all the beard oil chat for time.
  • Some wavering audio levels due to the unboxing.
  • Fumbling the sponsor read.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Hey everyone, hope you're all keeping happy and healthy. This week is a light and easy one in which we practice simple dinner time conversation with the help of some prompts, with a nice second course of Science News and some Recommendation Engine for dessert. Grab a spoon. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Rushed episode notes lending a generic feel.
  • Buxton references.
  • The um... horse... got.... loose I dunno look I've got a dinner to get to.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 136: Working Hard, Or Hardly Working?

Hey, wow, good to see you. You've really bulked up, good for you. Respect. Me? Oh, not much, not much. Been doing this podcast thing actually. Pretty fun. Yeah, getting some buzz I think, I dunno, we don't do it for the money. Yeah, yeah. Oh, anything really - this week was about jobs and work and what to do when people outnumber tasks on this planet. Yeah, can be, but we try to lighten things up with stories about pedestrian harassment and that sort of thing. You have to--? Oh, yeah, no, no worries, I actually have a thing too, so, yeah. Yeah we should! We should! Maybe at Jamie's 31st? Oh no, she is? Oh, wow. That's so sad. Buses, eh? Anyway, this episode's mistakes include:

  • Shit what's his girlfriend's name?
  • Clarence? No, Clarence is a guy's name.
  • But wait Florence is a girl's name though so how does that work?
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 135: Orwell That Ends Well

Hello friends, are you well? Please stay safe out there, and make sure to maintain social activity remotely - like by talking to a friend about this interesting podcast you just heard.

  • A mediocre lit crit class.
  • Pitbull slander.
  • Oddly nihilistic spirals midway through.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 134: Hooey, Louis, And The News

Today marks six years since Deep Fought launched (!) and we'd like to note up front how grateful we are to all of you who have tuned in along the way. Thank you. We're back at the podcast coalface with a topic we can't leave alone - Louis C.K. - in light of the recent release of his special. There's also a smattering of chat about the corona situation, some more recommendations, and a twist ending you won't see coming. Please note we do discuss sexual assault. This episode's mistakes include:

  • No mailbag despite promising a mailbag.
  • Slandering Michael's mother, who is actually lovely.
  • Probably could have been 15 seconds shorter.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 133: Panic Room

Cosy up indoors and put on a podcast, because the world is weird right now and we're weird too. In our first dispatch from quarantine, we're talking about the latest coronavirus news, what it's like to be in total lockdown, and how we're keeping sane. We're also going to try and do more frequent pods for the next few weeks to keep you and ourselves distracted. Take care out there. ❤️ This episode's mistakes include:

  • Blowing the cologne sponsorship.
  • Jarring jump to surround sound for SFX work.
  • Really should have done some George Clooney News with all that's going on.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 132: Musical Mystery Tour

Take those earphones out, I'm talking to you, but then put them back in, because this week we're walking through our lives and pinpointing the music that got us to where we are today. Plus, plenty of coronavirus updates, a rampage in an Indian restaurant, and THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT LEMONS. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Too beefy. There's just too much beef happening and this episode is full of it.
  • No advice about how to deal with a pandemic.
  • Edit made me late for my two o'clock.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 131: Are You For Real?

Hey, my ears are up here!

That's not really a joke and doesn't even make sense but I am running out of ideas how to start this blurb thing. I hope you're getting enough calcium in your diet. Hedgehogs are predators in New Zealand. Who invented the word 'swizzle'? This episode's mistakes include:

  • Audible traffic noise at start.
  • Conflating the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre with the 1980 Olympics boycott.
  • Burying the lede.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 130: Take Care Of Yourself

Kia ora koutou, and welcome to lucky number 130. Are you keeping well? You are? Well, that's great, because on this pod we talk through the coronavirus outbreak, then healthcare more generally, and why men tend to not go to the doctor. Plenty of rousing talking points for all the hypochondriacs out there. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Some weird audio levelling, don't ask me, I just make the thing.
  • Encouraging bad airline etiquette.
  • Too much bullying.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 129: Peace For Our Time

As promised, we return to our fortnightly schedule by tackling the concept of world peace. Is it even biologically achievable? What would it take? Can we be bothered? All that, plus some truly shocking George Clooney News, so stick around. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Contemplative Michael = occasionally quiet Michael.
  • Insulted the sponsor.
  • Podcast artwork is thematically inappropriate.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
