Irreverent repartee

Fun chat about all sorts of cultural activities , the repartee between the hosts is so witty. Chuckle along with them about Life and The Universe. Has a real Melbourne vibe. Highly recommended

These guys are great!

Enjoyable discussion and banter about many things. Some things for me, some not. It doesn't seem to matter, I enjoy the talk.
