Listen to Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Michele A’Court tackle the past month in women, news and popular culture.
This month the gang is back together to tackle the past month-ish in New Zealand media, news and general bullshit, with help from our glorious new sponsors at twenty-seven names. We dive deep into the horrific online response to Jay Jay Harvey’s assault in a taxi, share our own travel horror stories and cool tips on how to get from A to B safely.
Beyond that, we also ponder the dark side of Twitter, freak out about soiled sex robots and encourage you all to stare deeply into the eyes of a cat. You’ll have to listen to find out why.
Watch club recommendations: Find Me a Māori Bride on Māori TV, Big Mouth on Netflix and The Deuce on Sky.
