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 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.

Episode 160: Stars In Your Eyes

Dun dun dun dun.... oooo-eeee-oooo-eeee-eeee-oooh..... (X-Files theme). Welcome to an interstellar ep of Deep Fought as Michael takes the reins to talk UAPs (that's UFOs for all you sheeple out there). We explore the implications of extraterrestrial arrivals and just how it might change the world. Plus we have our first ever paid sponsor! Big day! This episode's mistakes include:

  • Not long enough.
  • Completely fumbled the opportunity to talk about Lost.
  • No Bitlyball this week.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 159: Billion Dollar Question

Greetings, friends, to what offhand feels like probably the longest episode we've ever done. But you'll be pleased to know that it's packed full of goodies and substance, not ramble. We're talking travel, we're talking Elon Musk, we're talking billionaires, and nosy grannies, and even have time to debut our brand new game, Bitlyball. It's a monster, but a good monster, like Frankenstein or Franken, Al. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Overindulgent new jingle.
  • Uhh... were we mean to Elon again??
  • Look, I can't remember what else might be wrong, I spent all day on the jingle okay.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 158: Live From Melbourne, It’s Sunday Night!

Another break, but this one more excusable, because Nick was in Australia again for the first time in 16ish months. Better yet, he was in Melbourne, which means this is an in-person podcast. The bad news is, the audio is all over the place because we've lost the skills to make good recordings in the same room. But hopefully our charm and charisma will paper over those flaws. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Aforementioned echoes and glitches.
  • What, did you think we'd talk about something other than ourselves?
  • Okay, we do talk about Elon Musk for a bit. #hottake
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 157: Go Back To Bed, Jesus!

Hello, dear friend. Such a long time has passed since last we spoke, and yet so little has changed. I love how easily you and I slip back into these easy rhythms together. It's something special. A testament to our connection after all these years – in fact, today is our seventh anniversary since launch. Let's not leave it so long next time, eh? This episode's mistakes include:

  • A sprinkling of light heresy.
  • Cancelling Tom Hanks.
  • Too much testosterone.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 156: Party Pooper

Sorry, sorry, I know – I was caught in traffic. Hope you're keeping well. It's a loose and loopy one this week as we ramble our way through car purchases, noisy neighbours, stretchy ties, and café heartbreak. You'll love it. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Definite slurring.
  • Extra silliness.
  • Failed to properly explore the idea of dragon capitalism.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 155: Face Off

Will you even see this post? That's the question we're asking this week in the wake of Facebook's secession from the Australian media market. Plus, there's another hair update, a COVID follow-up, and some exciting Mars news. This episode's mistakes include:

  • One noticeable edit - can you find it?
  • Unpaid Manscaped promotion.
  • Audible sweat.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

I know, I know, it's been a minute. Let's not dawdle. I know your time is valuable and your eyes hurt reading every unnecessary, redundant word. This episode's mistakes include:

  • A bit of lag making some of our conversation jaggy.
  • Outdated investment advice.
  • Bizarre diversion into spice talk??
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
