WAWAWOW's Shaun Allen combines genuine discussions with absurd featurettes and experimental audio. Featuring guests from the world of music, comedy and art, the podcast is bizarre, heavily edited and nonsensically presented, in brackets.

1.12 Matt Wright (Greyscale, Widower, Women Who Rock Podcast)
Guitarist and radio host Matt Wright has experienced some major tragedies in recent times, and is channelling the energy into a number of projects including blues group Widower and the Women Who Rock podcast. Matt and Shaun chat about climate science, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and the cathartic power of the blues.
Music by Matt Wright, Greyscale, Widower, and WAWAWOW.
1.11 David Novak (Polish Club)
Polish Club have hit astounding heights since their inception in 2014, with David Novak's vocals adding a soulful tinge to their succinctly gritty sound. David and Shaun chat their favourite James Bond themes, the constraints of politeness and why there's always room for a good time rock 'n' roll band.
Music by Polish Club and WAWAWOW.
Smash Mouth/Gary Jules segment arranged by David Gonzalez-Dysinger.
1.10 James Dunlop (Light Entertainment)
Light Entertainment are one of the most brilliant bands to come out of Sydney in recent years, described as "an unorthodox mélange of psychedelia, Spaghetti Western soundtrack and krautrock with hints of jazz". Frontman James Dunlop visits the mattress palace to chat excesses in studio recording, avoiding macho culture and the genius of The Ramones.

1.09 Thraxxy Kilmister (Bustacap)
Thraxxy Kilmister is best known as one half of electronic hip hop outfit Bustacap, but also has had a ridiculous amount of creative pursuits to her name. Thraxxy chats about starting a local wrestling federation, addressing sexism in the music industry, and shares stories from working in a Darlinghurst tattoo shop.

Really Funny, Great listening
Great podcast! Really funny with a chilled out vibe
So much love and effort put into this unique and excellent pod. I love it!
Very down to earth interviews intertwined with perfectly surreal musical and oratory interludes. The host brings out interesting personal stories from every guest and the editing will keep you on your toes.
