    The Final Message

    The Final Message

    They say the two hardest things to say in life are hello for the first time and goodbye for the last.
    Hi, you’ve called Age & Mitch. And we thought we’d leave you one last Message on the Machine. 
    It’s been a wild ride:
    2 years
    5 seasons
    72 episode
    Laughs, tears, shocks, triumphs and terrible embarrassments. Sex parties, disrupted bowels, heartbreak, “the ick,” psychic readings, halloween, healthy habits, fetishes, therapy, sex ed, Google histories and LOTS of gay shit.
    It’s hard to look back at the last two years of laying all cards on the table and not want to celebrate. So that is exactly what the boys have decided to do. Pour yourself a glass of bubbles for this one because they certainly did.
    Our hosts have spent their last hour behind the mics to take stock. Highlights, lowlights, regrets, favourite eps and some never before revealed BTS exclusives just for you gossipy little listeners to enjoy. To round out the show, Age & Mitch take a moment to thank each and every one of you gorgeous listeners that have made this show what it is today. Then thank each other and cry through to the credits.
    If this is the first time you’re listening to us then honey, what a joyous many hours you have in your future. If it’s not then know this, we see you, we love you and thank you.
    Good luck out there x

    Even Draggier with Jimi the Kween

    Even Draggier with Jimi the Kween

    Bring. Back. My Girl.
    That’s right, with the end in sight, and for the first time in MOTM history Age & Mitch have welcomed back a past guest for another crack at the mics. But not just any guest, oh no. The boys are extremely excited to welcome back close friend of the show and self-professed superstar of the world: Jimi the Kween.
    It’s been a hot 20-months since the last time JTK dropped into the studio. So naturally there was a lot to catch up on. From career pivots (ahem, DJ Jimi) to evolving relationships with gender. As a full-time drag queen these days, Jimi had a bit to add in the sequel to her iconic “The Secret Life of Drag” (Episode 22). The boys get the scoop on Drag Race auditions and whether a national drag icon still picks up the occasional prop from Supa Bargains.
    On a grittier note, Age and Jimi compare notes on turning 30, a milestone they’ve both hurtled past since last catching up. Turns out it might not be as utterly horrendously terrifying as Mitch seems to believe? The boys also discuss the very topical… um, topic of drag for children and why it is categorically NOT grooming.
    All this and a barrel of laughs in what is the penultimate episode of Message on the Machine. Enjoy.

    Your Message, Our Machine #12

    Your Message, Our Machine #12

    Ultimate power has once again been granted to you, the listeners.
    That's right, in our final EVER instalment of Your Message, Our Machine, Age & Mitch are giving the power to the people and will be discussing whatever you care to chat about. Until further notice.
    In this edition of YMOM, the boys hold nothing back and take a min to get into their feels with the people to reminisce about the great times on the show both behind and away from the mics. They also provide their *expert* opinions on the success of the upcoming and highly-anticipated Sydney World Pride, and read out some farewell messages that you gorgeous people all wrote in.
    For our final Confessions on the Machine, one poor girl in particular held nothing back when she completely outed her bestie in retelling what may be the worst date that anyone has ever had. We won’t go into too much detail here but suffice it to say it was a very shitty situation…
    All this and more waiting for you after the beep, so go on then. What are you waiting for?

    The Catch Up Call #14

    The Catch Up Call #14

    Ring, ring besties. It’s your monthly Catch Up Call on the line.
    That’s right, Age & Mitch are back for everyone’s favourite monthly update on the lives of our two hosts and the highly-selective goings-on of the world at large. 
    This week for the boys, it’s more Halloween updates, Losing It with one particular DJ in the park and some very, very Wet Bussys.
    In current affairs (ie. the current affairs that have grabbed the attention of our two hosts), the world’s richest man is currently running Twitter into the ground and begging strangers for $8? A few of our dearly beloved have passed and Hollywood is FINALLY releasing a gay romcom that isn’t very extremely sad. The boys discuss People’s 2022 Sexiest Man Alive, but are they happy about it? And discuss JK Rowling’s ongoing feud with all that is good and decent in this world.
    All of this and so much more jam packed into this bumper ep for your aural pleasure. Hot. All you need to do is press play.

    Fetishes

    Fetishes

    Today, we're getting sexy.
    This week, Age & Mitch are pulling back the cover on all things fetish. Never ones to shy away from the "taboo," our hosts deep dive into the exciting world of abnormal sexual desire and all that it entails. From feet, to pig play, to BDSM, everything is fair game as these boys would NEVER yuck someone else's yum.
    Discussion points include what exactly constitutes a "fetish" and do our hosts have any that that would like to confess? Stigma around fetishes and whether they are more prominent amongst The Gays than their straight counterparts. Some important questions are asked around exploring fetishes with a hookup vs. with a partner and which one is the preference. And of course, this being an educational program Age & Mitch spit some educational facts about this kinky world. Spoiler alert, it seems that the world is crazy about fkn feet...
    So slip into your finest gimp suit, lube up and let’s dive in.

    Your Message, Our Machine #11

    Your Message, Our Machine #11

    'Tis time for the listener to take back the power.
    That's right, this week it’s the latest instalment of Your Message, Our Machine. The episode where you decide whatever the hell Age & Mitch get to talk about. After the big news of last week, the question box was inundated with questions. And fair enough. What has happened? Have they had a falling out? Did Adrian’s new boyfriend cause this rift? All will be revealed in due course.
    Speaking of boyfriends, the people want to know how Mitch feels about the new man in Age’s life. What does a co-dependent friendship look like in a peri-boyfriend world?!
    All of this and so much more leading up to our fav segment, Confessions on the Machine, where one deranged listener has their confession unpacked live on air for the surprise and delight of our hosts and the world at large. And this one is a goodie. Think mistaken identity, lesbian love, a surprise vegetable and a (somewhat) happy ending. We’ll leave it at that so you can enjoy the boys taking you through all the finer details.
    So as always, pour yourselves a little vino. Draw yourself a nice hot bath and settle in for this gorge little ep. Then we’ll see you at the next one.
