Ep. 65 - Picnic at Hanging Rock (GUEST: Kyran Morrison of the Dialogue Options Podcast)

Sound the alarm, Damask has gone missing! Thankfully Kyran Morrison of the Dialogue Options video game podcast joins Brod to discuss this weeks main topic: the Australian TV adaptation of PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK. Does the series justify it's existence in light of the much loved 1975 Peter Weir classic, or should this series disappear into the bush, never to be seen again? Listen and know!

Ep. 20 - Please Like Me: Season 3 (GUEST: Liam Gordes from the Catching Up Podcast)

Whilst Damask is lost in translation, Liam remains by Brod's side for another week to discuss a little bit more Please Like Me. At the start of season 3 Josh and Arnold are kinda-sorta but not really together, Alan and Mei are on the rocks, Rose and Hannah are getting used to living together and Tom is still lonely and pathetic. What a hilarious set-up for a season of light hearted comedy. Too bad it's all ruined by the adorkable Ella played by Emily Barclay. Such a shame.

Actually, this season is pretty good. You should really watch it and then listen to this podcast.

Ep. 19 - Please Like Me: Season 2 (GUEST: Liam Gordes from the Catching Up Podcast)

Liam returns to fill in for a globe-trotting Damask as he and Brod put the second season of Please Like Me under the microscope. Approximately a year has past since Aunt Peg's funeral and things have definitely changed. Josh has moved back in with Tom and new housemate Patrick. Geoffrey is nowhere to be seen and, for that matter, neither is Claire. Instead, Niamh is somehow seeing Tom again and Alan and Mae have had a baby girl, Grace! Rose meanwhile is acting a little too chipper, with a puppy under her arm and a new bright-red hair-do. Surely that can't be a bad thing...can it?

Ep. 18 - Please Like Me: Season 1 (GUEST: Liam Gordes from the Catching Up Podcast)

When the Damask is away the Gordes mice will play. Brod's brother Liam jumps in while Ms Leary is on vacation to talk about one of their favourite shows in recent years, Australian dramedy 'PLEASE LIKE ME'. Created, written by and starring stand-up comic Josh Thomas, 'Please Like Me' centres around Josh, a twenty-something Melbournite, who has been dumped by his girlfriend for 'probably being gay' and is forced to move back in with his mother after she attempts to kill herself. Doesn't that just sound hilarious? The show stars Josh Thomas, Thomas Ward, Caitlin Stasey and excellent every-mum Debra Lawrance. Why do the boys like this show so much? There's only one way to find out...

...By listening. By listening to the podcast. That's how you find out.
