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 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.

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.

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  • Outdated investment advice.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

Episode 153: The Banner Saga

You smell that sweet something in the air? That's the aroma of freshly baked podcast, just out of the oven. This week we're talking about the intersection of free speech and the private sphere of social media, and how many platforms have banned Donald Trump. But at the end, there's a story about aliens and toffee crisps, so... the usual. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Non-consensual photography.
  • Recording slightly too early to cover the inauguration.
  • No beloved Chip Chat™ segment.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 152: Capitol Gains

Happy new year, friends and foes! 2020 has been dragged kicking and screaming into the future, and rebranded itself with a fun new name. Yes, we're talking about the recent events in Washington, D.C., and what it might portend for the future. Plus, Nick's show Good Grief debuted on New Zealand TV, and we talk through how it went. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Our densest Science News ever.
  • A little bit of crinkling in the audio at the end, not sure why.
  • Tonight's lotto numbers are 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42.

It's our last show of the year, and it's our beloved annual retrospective. We're looking back 2020, in all its delight, and reflecting on how we coped. We hope you have a safe and satisfying holiday season, and that 2021 holds many exciting things for you. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Dissing our product placement.
  • Personal introspection of limited external interest.
  • Nick did not get Michael a present.

Episode 150: Boy Friends

We're here, and so are you, and we're all very thankful. It's our 150th AND our Holiday Spectacular all in one, and we're talking about the dynamics of male friendship.

Plus, we debut our 2020 Christmas songs, and honestly, between our individual songwriting and the editing of the podcast itself, we probably put over seventy hours of work into this one episode. We say that not to demand praise (or sympathy), but merely to point out there is no limit to how far we will go to amuse each other. This episode's mistakes include:

  • None.
  • This episode has no mistakes.
  • Thanks for coming along for the ride. We hope you stick around.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

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.
