Episode 85: Personnel Review

Happy New Year everyone! We made sure to sit down in the same room one more time while we were in the same country/city etc. and record an extra podcast. As tends to happen on these dates, we were feeling reflective and looked back at 2017 for ourselves and the world at large. But we also explore how to maintain passions and interests as you grow older. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Some varying audio due to proximity, but that's to be expected. And a hairdryer.
  • A little bit of a low energy start until the No-Doz kicks in.
  • A misunderstanding of the economics of magazine criticism.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 84: A History Of Violence

It's a Christmas miracle! Or at least a present. Either way, new episode, filmed live, in person and outside here in lovely, summery Adelaide. This week we're following up on an important revelation from last episode, plus debut a brand new paid Deep Fought service for devoted fans. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Some audio niggles here and there, including background birds (but it's pretty good for a live one, actually).
  • Free flow between topics, and yet no mention of alien revelations.
  • No jingle for a deserving segment.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 83: Art Versus Artist

Bonjour, and voila: another podcast. We're back with a follow-up to our last podcast in the wake of further sexual assault allegations towards many men of entertainment and politics. This time, we're taking a bit of a wider look at how we should feel about the art and work of these people in the wake of their bad behaviour. This episode's mistakes include:

  • No advance warning for that story. You'll know it.
  • Not much fun and games at the end, but there's enough at the start, right?
  • Not exploring in detail some intriguing revelations.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 82: Men And Women

Hello everyone. We're back this week with a deep dive into all the horrible sexual assault news, and the surrounding culture. It's an episode of self-analysis and exploration of male behaviour, and hopefully the end result is a somewhat nuanced look at complex issues with a changing of some opinions. Please consider this a trigger warning for anyone sensitive to these topics.

This episode's mistakes include:

  • Not having a woman present to provide a valuable alternative perspective.
  • Not fully exploring all issues mentioned in suitable depth, nor presenting arguments in the most coherent way.
  • Some poor audio mixing as per usual.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Donate to Lifeline. Call 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732) if you have experienced, or are at risk of, sexual assault.

Episode 81: Chip Off The Old Block

Welcome to a Very Special Episode for a very special person (you). This was recorded live in front of a studio audience in Melbourne for the Writers' Week Festival. I think you'll agree that the interaction and banter with the audience really adds something electric. Despite co-editing with a professional production team, I'm sorry to report that this episode's mistakes include:

  • Variable audio quality as both hosts varied in distance from the mic.
  • Too many segments.
  • Too little content.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 78: Balloon Emoji

How have you been? No, honestly, don't give me the trite answers you give everyone else - how have you really been? You deserve to be happy, that's all. And I just wanted to make sure. Anyway, we're back to talk while you listen. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Not being about anything.
  • But that's okay, isn't it?
  • I mean, sometimes, things don't mean anything.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 77: Change Your Mind

Hello. Always weird starting these text entries off. Maybe next time I'll mix it up with a riddle. Anyway hope you've been well. This week we're back in different countries and corresponding over the internet, and talking about how people change their minds (or don't) based on this comic by The Oatmeal. It also includes discussion of our first ever proper email question. Exciting! This episode's mistakes include:

  • Chocolatey fun beginning and end filled with creamy serious middle.
  • A chocolate tray style grab bag of different topics and segments.
  • Too many chocolate analogies in the podcast notes.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 76: Dad, Don’t Listen To This One

Welcome home for a special episode. Nick was in Melbourne, which meant the opportunity to record live in Michael's living room like the good old days. Plus, we were joined by special guest Britt, who lends a certain je ne sais quoi to the proceedings. Also, we ask what is love, baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more? This episode's mistakes include:

  • Really imbalanced audio - sorry. Nick is quiet the whole time. Damn it.
  • Hard-hitting, fast-moving, discussion that never quite amounts to anything.
  • Teaser of a sequel that wasn't recorded.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.
