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 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.

Episode 139: Cop Out

Well met, young travellers. I hope times are treating you well and that this morsel of discussion may sate your appetite. We talk about the black rights matter protests and defunding the police, but we also try to work out which is the coolest fruit, so never let it be said we don't have range. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Lack of ethnic diversity.
  • Lack of gender diversity.
  • Lack of sweater diversity.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

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.

  • 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.
