The funniest and best podcast

Why would anyone listen to anything else - though sometimes the wheels fall off and the chaos pod rules, when the wheels are falling off your own life nothing is more comforting and heartening to listen to.

So good to have NZ pop culture review show

This consistently makes me look like an idiot on my bus ride into work because I laugh out loud. There is no higher praise. Thanks for being one of a very few good NZ podcasts.
