Hillary’s been here for a visit. Which was nice. Pity her country went completely to shit while she was away from it. Noam Chomsky has a yarn about shenanigans, Dan and Dave triumphantly enter parliament on visitor’s open day to check out the naughty chair. Also: q) what’s fun to do while drunk? a) almost anything but especially throwing things in the harbour.
We’re trying something out with the audio settings so that you can listen to us without pumping your volume to the max and then forget to reset it to a painless level when you go back to listening to your raps. Taken us, what, 82 episodes to figure that out? Not like anyone involved with this studied audio engineering or anything. Best podcast ever.
Join us as we try to set Dan up with Deborah Hill Cone. Have a look at her sterling wit here, just before John Campbell has to actively resist punching her in the face.

Hahaha, we just totally talk about pizza for like the entire time. Ok, that’s an exaggeration, we do get around to talking about real stuff: The pathology of the right wing, the crimes of Labour governments past, morality, tea and , of course, coffee.
This was recorded before the Chris Carter debacle. The next episode is going to be all over that.
The National Party Conference has just been, which means comedy gold is in the air. From the promises themselves, the dodgy stats backing up the decisions, to the unions who tried to storm the castle, we get a bit of fodder out of the whole ordeal. Also on the agenda: The future of the Maori party, Molotov Mitchell tweets about non-specific violence, the US revolutionary war, the PEDA fiasco and fallout, and Lego:
Jesus Christ, the second we ask where John Howard’s got to he goes and does something newsworthy. We’ll tackle that next week, I guess. Anyhow, for now: FIFA vs France, Pope vs Brussels, Humans vs Airlines, Vinyl vs CDs, Brightly coloured luggage vs Losing your shit. It’s all good.
