Ep 7 — Ten Chambers of Hell
Ok, fair warning, this episode is a weird one. It feels like a full moon, or a weird Halloween special, because we get into some weird, spooky s*** this week. With Liam on holiday in Malaysia, recording from his hotel room in Kuala Lumpur, we chat about the joys of international travel, and Liam exposes the deepest, darkest secrets of a seemingly peaceful religion. We also have a Mike Whitney update, a shocking “Do You Remember” segment, and a look back at Australia’s beloved Quentin....

Another jam-packed episode of Spinning Yarns! We talk about the little-known problem overtaking American universities: Australia Denialism. Also, where the bloody hell is our Dundee movie!? Danny McBride's "Crocodile Dundee" remake turns out to be nothing more than another Tourism Australia commercial.
