Ep. 26 I Always Wanted to Be a Gangster
40:48Alex Bain and guest co-host Gerald “The General” Stewart talk about the appeal of the anti-social.

48:18Life is pain.

Ep. 24 Kiwi Ingenuity
51:06Any New Zealander worth the salt on their fush and chups grows up knowing they’re blessed with Kiwi Ingenuity. But what are the true origins of the no. 8 wire mentality, and is Aotearoa really any more ingenious than anywhere else?

Ep. 23 Paronomasia: The Father of All Dad Jokes
37:20Copywriter Scott Armstrong returns to ponder the predicament of puns and why they make us groan more often than giggle.

Ep. 22 Eccentric Boogaloo
1:00:24Alex tries a new co-host on for size and spoiler alert it’s Dan Wood from The Good The Bad and the LP. The eccentricity in the air is palpable as they examine some of history’s most notorious eccentrics, from Bavarian kings to the late great Prince by way of Beefheart, Dali, Starburns, The Gonz and more.

Ep. 21 ASMR
46:41What A Predicament returns for a third season not with a bang, but with a whisper. Wondering why the provocative videos beloved by so many ASMRn’t working for him, Alex recruits a trial co-host to discuss the ASMR phenomenon and talks to a man of fancy book learnin’ about the science behind the shivers.
