    PETE IS A LIAR (THE BIG FIGHT EPISODE): Taylor Swift, Ticketmaster and Andor

    Tik Tokers are using Taylor Swift lyrics to "weed out" matches on dating apps (1:26). We call an old friend to discuss this week's Ticketmaster fiasco (12:57). Pete pitches DJ on why he should check out Andor and gets sidetracked (31:52). The boys discuss clothes that look good on each other, but DJ isn't sure he can trust Pete anymore after the lie.

    BOOZY PANDA: James Corden is a [redacted], Taylor Swift album preview, The 1975 discussion and 'Halloween Ends' review

    BOOZY PANDA: James Corden is a [redacted], Taylor Swift album preview, The 1975 discussion and 'Halloween Ends' review

    Well, turns out James Corden is a bit of a c-word. We phone up our friend Nora Princiotti to catch up on Taylor Swift's "Midnights" album buzz, then discuss The 1975's great new album "Being Funny In A Foreign Language." Finally, we turn our attention to "Halloween Ends" -- a bizarre (and polarizing) end to the new Halloween trilogy.

ADHD in a podcast

Big fan of the podcast but halfway through you lose me as a listener each week because I start listening to whatever obscure artist or song you have mentioned 30 times by that point. Hope that doesn’t mess up your stats!
