    We're back and I promise we'll be here weekly from now on!

    This week, Lewis Hobba, broadcaster at Triple J, joins me to chat how he got into the broadcasting game, his relationship to comedy and his predictions for the (at the time) un-announced Hottest 100 of the Decade winners. 

    We were in the foyer of the ABC and there were some construction and coffee-making going on in the background - so forgive the noise. However. this is DIY radio at its finest, so it adds to the vibe.

    See you next Monday!

    For episode two we chat all things psych, fuzz and doom metal with Psychadelic Pron Crumpets frontman Jack McEwan.

    We get into what how the band originally thought they would be playing to the stoner/psych audience, how Triple J changed everything and how obsessively listening to a variety of music can help you as a song-writer.

    Once again, we have some chat here about upcoming shows that have since been cancelled as a result of COVID-19 (stay safe all!)

    Songs:

    'Ergophobia' - Psychadelic Pron Crumpets

    'Lost in Atlantis' - Smartface

    This episode was recorded before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, hence the candid chat about touring.
