Those of you who follow our twitter may already know this (and it’s not going to come as a shock to the rest of you) but Dan got into a scuffle the other week. He runs down the events that got him covered in blood. This sparks an oral history of getting monged in Wellington, which is arguably the only topic we’re actually qualified to talk on.

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.
Given that right wingers seem to be perfectly capable of destroying themselves, we devote our attention to attacking people we actually kind of like; Hippies, Hippy Councilors and The Kids.
Ecstasy deaths, the perils of the aristocracy in getting themselves KFC, the impending crippling labour relations in the UK, gigolos, and, of course, donk.
Dogs are not a man’s best friend and they do not understand “bros before hoes” at all. Stupid Henry. Hear an old story from Dave’s youth, Dan’s views on animals and the morons who love/speak to them, plus the usual shit about Chris Carter.
In this episode we talk about K-Strass, a purported Yo-yo expert who has been pranking local news shows in America with is yo yo “act”. Also, the UK election results are in, Paula Bennett’s an idiot, and Dave unveils his own new single-issue, special interest political party, the CAIP.
Normally, we here at the Egonomist set aside Thursday nights for our tracking sessions. We have our day jobs to go to the next morning, so we tend to limit ourselves to having a moderate amount to drink and tend to record as early in the evening as is possible.
This week we recorded on a Friday. While we had friends over.
So join us for a musical adventure as we gripe and yarn over protest/political music, bloated prog and 1980s aural electro-abortions. Also a look at the fight going down between the writers of the soap opera Shortland Street and the city of Tauranga.
Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Gallipoli and the Budget – portents of the end of times? Sure. But meanwhile the Egonomist is charting up wins by… by making the Pope cry. Way to go!
EPISODE TEN! What a milestone. For what was supposed to be a weekly podcast, hitting episode 10 in week 3 of our existence is an incredible testament to the productivity of good, hardworking New Zealanders. So too is this episode. We talk about election promises, parity with Australia, labour unions – ALL THE FUN STUFF! God, we’re a crack up.
Phil Goff’s speech to the Grey Power AGM, mentioned constantly in this episode, can be read here: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PA1004/S00131.htm
Today we take down American agriculture, horny negligent parents and respond to our listeners. But mostly we just gape in awe at the music video that’s setting the world aflame: Insane Clown Posse’s “Miracles”. Enjoy.
