More

The Apocalypse

10/11/2018
More
I think my favourite apocalypse is from the famous anime Fist Of The North Star, where it's basically Mad Max but instead of worshipping cars or whatever, whoever has the best magic kung fu is the King. Also, we don't ever acknowledge that it's magical, even though guys' head's explode when the main character just touches them with his pinky. That's just normal in the post-apocalypse world; after all, it's all we've ever known. The old world has been forgotten. Also it would be pretty funny...

Monday Meet-Ups: Riverdale

10/8/2018
More
The boys speculate about the upcoming season of Riverdale, and Jacob is blindisded by information both about season 3 and also season 1, and promptly forgets what happened in season 2. Matt is all too happy to help him out with various instagram fan account theories. They say there'll be a supernatural element to this season, but if it doesn't end with the Milkshake Gang taking the mask off of a relatively new, but prominent character dressed in a monster suit, I will be severely...

Brooklyn Nine Nine

10/4/2018
More
Rain. Smoke. Blood. Just another night on the beat. The body lay there, looking at me, dumbly. "Fuck, I'm dead, bro!" It seemed to say to me. I adjusted my fedora. I wasn't here to listen to complaints. I cased the scene. Basketballs littered the alley like bullet cases. It didn't take Elon Musk to tell you what happened. The body's head was caved in like a person of indeterminate gender whose head had been caved in by a basketball. Couldn't tell what gender they were, but I sure as heck...

Monday Meet-Up: Going Green

10/1/2018
More
Hey podsters. The two boys have a quick little bonus ep for you this fine Monday. They basically just BS around a bit. You know, basically a full ep but with any structure cut out. So just like a usual full ep, but half an hour.

Jacob's Utopia

9/27/2018
More
The boys enter into a reasoned, factual debate over the benefits and pitfalls of rampant socialism (or what Jacob thinks socialism is). JUST KIDDING! Jacob instead describes the utopia of his rule while Matt plays devils advocate (including defending Nazis! 😳 Whoops! (inaccurate, jacob you jerk)). Jacob shows how well you can argue for ridiculously extensive socialism with no facts (hint: it's alright) whilst Matt drops bombs like, "yeah, but what about money though?" and "regulations can...

Apple Keynote(s)

9/20/2018
More
For some reason, we do an episode on a uneventful Apple Keynote that Matt watched because he does that. Like, as a thing, regularly, as they come out. Like, is that normal? Not really right? You couldn't pay someone to be that engaged as a consumer. In fact, Matt usually pays them. He's a marketer's dream. What does that make him? Who gains pleasure from watching a guy that's not Steve Jobs talk about how they made the same product but with 2 mm more of a touch screen? Not a NORMIE, that's...

D n D

9/13/2018
More
Jacob gets to talk about DnD for 30 minutes so Matt has an excuse to create a weird Bull-Man riding a Wolf. 2018 has been great.

Spider-Man

9/6/2018
More
Your friendly neighbourhood podboys swing into a few topics regarding Peter Parker, the Arachnid Avenger ! ! And then they also spend 40 minutes getting distracted by comics and movies and stuff. You know the drill.

Duration:01:02:14

Stand Up Comedy

8/30/2018
More
The Friend Club decide to talk about stand up comedy and waffle on about how they want to do it and stuff. Instead they talk about the Trevor Noah live show and Matt comes to grips with how Trevor's Political Comedy™ made him reflect on his own political views. Jacob laughs too loudly into the mic and talks about his ancestors watching him poop.

Duration:01:15:22

Politics

8/23/2018
More
WAIT! PLEASE CLICK ON THIS EP!! HOT TAKES INBOUND!! The Boys™ go long on politics, but they also spend half an hour talking about Netflix, Michael Pena and other things. They do their best not to get in a shouting match while they navigate the weird Australian political landscape and try not to alienate 65% of their listeners doing so. Then they get preachy. It's a bit new wave for Big Feet and Spectacle Boy, but it's a bit of a breath of fresh air. 9.5/10.

Mascots II

8/16/2018
More
The long awaited second part of the MASCOTS SAGA. Big Fudge and The Demon Deacon lay down the law about everything Mascot-related so y'all can know your rights. You're welcome. www.thechatau.wordpress.com

Mascots

8/9/2018
More
Big Foot and The Boy come together to discuss Mascots, a topic that they discuss so heavily that they have to split it into two parts. SIKE, they accidentally get derailed for the first 30 mins talking about AFL for some reason and then decide to talk about Mascots after that. But we did split it into two parts tho. new website: www.thechatau.wordpress.com

Movie Trailers

8/2/2018
More
The boys phone it in this week with an underhand throw straight into a homerun. They talk about movie trailers because they watch them and end up bashing on DC for the majority of the podcast. Avant-garde stuff. Check that new image tho

The Chat Investigates: the I s l a n d L i f e

7/26/2018
More
The boys reflect on their time on the island, with the mysterious quokkas and secret (truthfully, not all that secret) world of geocaching. Some of the memories are a little foggy due to the classic mid-20s mature of the trip (excessive drink *wink*). Enjoy.

Nintendo

7/19/2018
More
The Sickies are back! Everyone's favourite The Chat™ Characters are back! To celebrate, they talk about Nintendo, the Cadillac of Nostalgia. Jacob brags about his Smash bros. prowess, Matt goes on a 10 minute Crossfit tangent and forgets his original point. It's back to basics, really.

Duration:01:06:46

Elon Musk

7/12/2018
More
The boys, delirious from sickness, try and wrap their head around the weird lizard-boy adventures of Elon Musk, everyone's favourite capitalist. How does he make money? Why did he make a flamethrower? Why did people buy it? Just another episode of hot takes delivered from the most isolated city in the world...

HORROR MOVIES (boo!)

7/5/2018
More
Two white guys discuss movies. Joke about being the only podcast in the world to do this here. Jakey and Matty talk about horror movies, probably the main genre of movies behind musicals that they know nothing about. Matt talks about how he laughs at jokes in horror movies (revolutionary) and Jacob's brain leaks out of his nose onto his microphone. Very spooky stuff!

Haircuts

6/28/2018
More
The dynamic duo talk about haircuts for a little bit. Jacob got a bad one and is clearly traumatised, while Matt sits upon his home-cut-high-horse and tells him to get a short-back-and-sides. This one's a gamechanger, folks. That only lasts about 20 minutes before they delve in to a chat about Michael B Jordan's jackedness for the rest of the episode. Au revoir, gens.

Formula 1 ft. guest cohost Mark "Boof" Allen

6/21/2018
More
With Jacob pulling a sicky Matt calls in his brother for a bit of a different episode on the motorsport for gentlemen, the Formula 1. This ones a little more informative than you're use to but hey maybe you'll learn something from a clearly nervous first time podcaster Boof. Many thanks to Boof for his last minute stepping in. Enjoy!
