    ANNOUNCEMENT: We're coming back! (And the Delta outbreak one year on!)

    An announcement on what I see as the future path for News Fighters.

    Putin foreshadowed the Ukraine invasion in 2021 (extended replay episode)

    I'm on break but I thought it was a good time to replay an extended version of my segment from last year on Russian President Vladimir Putin's bombastic call in TV show, in which he actually foreshadowed his invasion of Ukraine.

    What is Boris Johnson's ACTUAL future ambition? (from 2019)

    Originally released the day Boris Johnson became British PM in 2019, we replay a very prophetic episode previewing the narcisstic lying sh*tshow that would characterise his leadership as well as his potential future ambition.

    Who is Anthony Albanese? (from 2019)

    Who is Anthony Albanese? (from 2019)

    In June 2019 when Anthony Albanese became opposition leader I made a segment introducing him and making some incorrect predictions about his chances of becoming Prime Miniser. Well boy was I wrong but I hope you enjoy it!

    Episode 100 - a "best of" the worst times.

    To celebrate the 100th episode of my indulgent wacky clips news comedy podcast I’ve cobbled together a non-stop funny romp through some of the biggest news stories since the show started in February 2019. From the Black Summer bushfires through to the covid lockdowns, the vaccine strollout and our Omicron summer, expect to laugh, cry and want to move to New Zealand! Also we have some of the best showbiz and culture highlights from Stefan and some big celebrities send in their congratulations!
    Thanks to Dan Ilic and Stefan Pazur for appearing and celebrity wrangler Chris "The Mystery Man" McGrane.
