If you like rambling, irreverent nonsense, this is the podcast for you! Half philosophy, half jokes. Actually, what DO you like? We should have checked with you first.

Episode 91: Public Property

Just in time for the weekend, it's another episode of The Podcast™. This week, Michael takes his shirt off, Nick discovers fun facts, and we eventually talk about how long it should take before art enters the public domain. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Repeated evidence of Michael's microphone brushing against his beard.
  • A bit of a rolling start before we get into the meat of the discussion.
  • An unfair amount of catchy jingles and earworms.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 90: Discipline

Happy four year anniversay, Deef-heads! That's the new name I'm trying out for our fanbase. Or maybe Deefans? Pronounced like "defence"? Look, I was going to leave it to you to organically create but you've been a bit slack. This episode features a few exciting tests, some discussion of self-control, and more miscellany. Thanks for listening for all these years, if that's indeed the case with you. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Minimal reference to the ninetyversary, and too much reference to the centiversary.
  • Some sporadic topic jumps, but at least now we know why.
  • One story that we had to excise for everyone's sake.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 89: Into The Wild

We're back with some survival tips, so I hope you find yourself in a disastrous situation soon and get the opportunity to use them. A Desert Island Discs discussion quickly derails into talk of soap, Segways and business ideas. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Wavering audio levels due to Michael microphone issues.
  • Wavering attention on the topic at hand, but what's new?
  • Irresponsible aggrandisement of desert island living.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 87: Justice League

Bon été, mes amis. Hope this week sees you relaxed and rejuvenated. On this week's podcast, we're talking about the justice system and criminal punishment - is incarceration the best way to treat the convicted? But we wend our way there via a few other interesting things, so stick around. This episode's mistakes include:

  • Several good visual gags that don't get translated in an audio medium.
  • A bit of tonal whiplash here and there.
  • Chickens.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

Episode 86: Typing Test

Good evening, and welcome to a fun interactive episode of Deep Fought. We're back in different countries and thought this would be the perfect time to take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test. Finally, our flaws will be made visible. This episode's mistakes include:

  • A bit longer than usual but there were lots of fun bits I didn't want to cut out, so...
  • Some audio glitches from a bit of a bastard record session.
  • No DNA evidence for ancestry claims.
  • Egregious factual inaccuracies.

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.
