What a journey!

In this messy and poorly hosted episode (thanks Mat D!) Darran and Mat talk about Coombe and friends with the Christchurch / Auckland Power-house duo and Only Fans money makers Craig Westenberg and Matt Coombe.

If you want to learn more about how to support patients suffering with snake aids, and you can get to Christchurch on Friday 27 November at 8:30pm, you should consider buying tickets (and maybe even turning up) to Coombe and Friends. Check out the tickets here: https://events.humanitix.com/coombe-and-friends

If you want to find out more about Craig and Coombe’s most embarrassing moments or why Coombe is big in Hawaii then listen on.

Predictions on the Hoof

In this rapidly dated episode (it’s like a ripe avo - listen now!) Mat and Darran talk about what the next parliament might look like, winners and losers, what next for the parties represented on recent episodes, the results of the referenda, and Mat’s gay porn double.

It was recorded in the backyard of a pub, so there is a bit of background noise that we just couldn’t filter out. Sound engineers will be annoyed.

Take it to the top with TOP

This week Darran and Mat were very priviliged to be joined by deputy leader of The Opportunities Party and North Shore electorate candidate (and former crown prosecutor) Shai Navot.

They spent nearly an hour diving deep into TOP’s programme for government, including Universal Basic Income, housing, tax, and cannabis reform, and why the old parties just don’t cut it any more.
