    Tokyo 2020+1 Olympics Special: Selling The Dream

    Tokyo 2020+1 Olympics Special: Selling The Dream

    Selling a dream is a lot like selling yourself. Get you a podcasting duo that can do both.

    Hi, we’re Gus and Rig from Gus and Rig.

    We are releasing this special presentation to you to let you know where we’ve been, what we’ve been doing and what we have planned for the Tokyo 2020+1 Olympics on our other podcast Medallica.

    We hope that you laugh, but more importantly, we hope that you badger the powers that be in a company that you either work for and/or own, to get right behind us in terms of sponsorship of our shows, various content and media appearances.

    There’s a whole bunch of options available but there’s only one underdog like you in your business and/or industry that can help out the underdogs that be us.

    Have a listen, dust off your cat paws, head to gusandrig.biz and help if you can, or jump over to Medallica on your favourite podcast app and hit subscribe.

    Let’s get dot bizzy.

    A Very Gus and Rig Shitmas: The Yule Lads

    A Very Gus and Rig Shitmas: The Yule Lads

    Let's be real - it's been a shit of a year. From Brexit to Covid and everything in between, people will never forget 2020.  UNTIL WE MAKE YOU FORGET WITH TWO HOURS OF ABSOLUTE FIRE. 

    That's right. The Yule Lads have come to bless your ears and sniff your doorways in a bumper Christmas episode.  It's a pillowcase under the tree that contains Kris Kringle horror shows, Gus's ongoing stoush with WA Police, a giant cat with the freshest kicks around and so much more.  We also have a look at the year that was and why we're so god damn happy to see the end of it.  

    Make sure to give it a listen when you've had enough of your annoying family, or you're on a road trip within your own state/country due to lockdown.

    Trends in Low Places 1

    Trends in Low Places 1

    People are cooked. How do we know this? Usually, just a passing glance will do the trick. However, how do we truly understand the method behind the cookery? Google searches.

    There are a lot of idiots out there contributing the weirdest search terms that the internet has ever seen. In this very first edition of Trends In Low Places, Gus delivers a range of bizarre and still somehow wildly popular Google searches to Rig, as they try and figure out the answer to the question that has plagued humanity since 1997: Why are people sexually attracted to Pokemon?

    Game of Rones Ep XVII: He Touched Me

    Game of Rones Ep XVII: He Touched Me

    Game of Rones Episode XVII: He Touched Me is ready for your listening pleasure. Weird title we know, but we assume Elvis meant it in a biblical sense, not like a sinister Catholic sense. Please don’t make us into a hashtag.   

    But let us touch you with tales from the low lights of Canberra to the dog statues of Turkmenistan and all the crazy googly-eyed, kid-punching sports mascots in between.  

    Let us touch your ears with some laughs, and feel free to touch our hearts with a review if you're so inclined.

    The Fails of Our Lives: MC'ing a Major Music Industry Awards Night

    The Fails of Our Lives: MC'ing a Major Music Industry Awards Night

    Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Fails of Our Lives.

    In this very special presentation, we turn the magnifying glass on ourselves to go over one of the worst gigs we’ve ever played.

    A couple of years ago we were asked to host a major industry awards night. We came, we saw, we failed miserably. This is a recount of what led up to it and how badly it went.

    It’s a tale of misplaced grandeur, icy receptions, lost jokes and slave labour.

    The Gus and Rig US Presidential Debate 2020

    The Gus and Rig US Presidential Debate 2020

    Welcome to the Gus and Rig Presidential Debate.   

    2020 has been a year for the books for the USA: Coronavirus has ravaged the country, civil unrest continues, and wildfires are burning through California. 

    But we don’t care about ANY of that. 

    In a special (non) televised debate, Gus and Rig go head to head to see whether Joe Biden or Donald Trump will take the precious swing states in this year’s election. They’ll do this not by focusing on the issues or party platforms, but based on the best and worst those states have to offer in terms of trainwrecks. 

    People will be offended when their state is represented by winners that hosted a ‘meth death party’, denied global warming, reckoned that abortions cause breast cancer and shot themselves in the foot just to see what it felt like.   

    We also pay tribute to those candidates who never made it to the big stage, mainly due to being no-hopers or just batshit insane. It’s a deluxe spread so sit back and enjoy the yelling. 

    Once you’re done and you’ve processed all the info, get out and vote if you’re in the US or get on the punt if you’re anywhere else.

Bruh can't think of a nickname ,

You beg for Mercy and you meet Percy

Genuinely one of the funniest 'casts rolling around this wide inter web. Recommended it to my sister few months ago, and she's now a bigger fan than I am. Lo-fi production with high-level content and laughs. Like being at the pub with your mates, but funnier, and with more meth squirrels.

Amazing

Probably one of the funniest podcasts, sick for a long drive and 100% worth a listen! 🙂
