    #125: Greta Thunberg, JVN, Unbelievable

    #125: Greta Thunberg, JVN, Unbelievable

    Myf and Zan are reunited and catching up on another massive week. On the east coast of America, Greta Thunberg is making waves with her impassioned fight for climate change action but a certain type of man is bent on bringing her down. Meanwhile on the west, the Emmys are on and we’re dissecting the farshun on ground. Jonathan Van Ness is absent, but in the news for other reasons: a revealing interview with the New York Times. And we’re banging on for one last time for the year, before Zan slums it back in Economy on her adventures in long service leave.

    #124: Hannah Gadsby, Muting Trolls, Berghain

    Myf wakes Zan up at a ridiculous hour in Germany, where she’s been busy trying to get into all the coolest clubs, before she begins her judging duties for the ANCHOR – Reeperbahn Festival International Music Award. We celebrate Hannah Gadsby’s Emmy win while questioning how Beyonce missed out on six awards. As well, suggested new rules for dealing with trolls have us thinking about the best way to deal with nastiness online. And of course we do what everyone’s doing and throw our faces into Imagenet Roulette, with the appropriately inappropriate response.

    #123: Parma, Caroline Calloway, Snowball

    Myf and Zan are dealing with another bad take by a repeat offender, and going in to bat for the chicken parma. A long read in The Cut has the internet ablaze, but why are we so thirsty for watching public take downs? And the unveiling of a statue of AFLW player Tayla Harris speaks for more than just one woman. We’re banging on about a gripping new podcast, and there’s some big Bang news to share with the Bang Fam too.

    #122: Flume, Taylor vs Tool, Unwanted Kisses

    Myf and Zan sink their teeth into another big week, and it’s a real peach. Flume has been setting the internet on fire with his antics at Burning Man, Taylor Swift fans don’t know or understand Tool and it’s a vibe. Meanwhile an unwanted kiss at a charity event sparks a conversation around the different greetings men and women receive, and the earliest invasions of personal space. And we have a fashion update. Oh yes we do.
