The Battle for Punchbowl

🎧 NEW PODCAST: Nat Tran, David Smiedt, Lewis Hobba, Dan Ilic & Alan Jones

G’day Fearmongers —

A special hello to listeners in Western Sydney’s Greenzone who are under military controlled lockdown.

One day soon, you can be free like the rest of us who live east of the Olympic Stadium.

Here in the Democratic People’s Republic of Bondi Beach we can argue in groups of two without a mask, and watch instagram influencers pose from a safe distance while waiting until September for our jab.

It won’t be long until you will be free once more.

On the podcast this week we have a great panel of fearmongers:

Nat Tran
David Smiedt — Chris O’Brien Lifehouse
Lewis Hobba
and Dan Ilic (me)

Thanks for listening — if you enjoy the show please chip in to our Patreon so we can afford to get a production assistant this year. We also need a budget to pull some great pranks during the next election, just like our #EngadineMaccas’s plaque which got a mention on Pod Save The Word this week. (43:20)

One last thing — I was featured in The Brilliant.

They captured how I think about A Rational Fear and climate change really nicely — Read it here.

If you enjoy our podcast, emails and important climate change conversations, chip in here like a good sovereign citizen. We want to raise enough money so we can start to make a high quality video each month – to fight the good fight. As the Australian election is coming up very soon, it’d be great to make more #AusPol LOLS and investigations.

To commemorate John Barilaro’s attack on free speech and satire we have done a collab with Brisbane artist Nordacious and have created what we suspect will be a very limited edition series of merchandise. Pick up a t-shirt / sticker or hoodie before we have to take it down.


Big thanks to  our Patreon Supporters and RODE Mics and Jacob Round.
