    Season 4, Episode 10: Skydiving with Dr Kevin Payne

    Alright gang, on this weeks podcast episode I’m joined by the truly inspirational Dr Kevin Payne.

    From being terrified of his own body to revelling in the perspective found in the church of altitude, Kevin’s story is really quite remarkable.

    After years of suffering from multiple sclerosis. Enduring personal loss. Trauma and emotional depletion, he gave himself one last chance.

    After using his academic background to rebuild himself and taking to the skies in order to live his life well, he’s now inspiring others to do the same.

    You can find Kevin’s book, podcast and all the other wonderful stuff he’s doing over at

    Season 4, Episode 9: The Beatles Never Broke Up

    Alright gang, this week we're diving into a Beatles album that was allegedly recovered from another world. It's a bizarre tale of dogs, inter dimensional travel, and purple ketchup.

    Season 4, Episode 8: The Museum of Broken Relationships

    Season 4, Episode 8: The Museum of Broken Relationships

    Alright gang, this week we’re talking about a place that has left a permanent mark on my being, The Museum of Broken Relationships.

    Not just that, but I’m discussing the museum with it’s former director, the wonderful Alexis Hyde.

    During our conversation Alexis digs into how she got he job curating the museum. How the experience was a whole. The numerous everyday and extraordinary items that were displayed. The all too human stories that accompanied them and naturally we get into a variety of side topics such as empathy and the cathartic process of letting go.

    It was an absolute pleasure chatting with Alexis and if you’ve enjoyed this episode (and there is no bloody reason why you shouldn’t have!) you can find more of Alexis here.

    Season 4, Episode 7: 2 Year Anniversary!

    Season 4, Episode 7: 2 Year Anniversary!

    Alright gang, this week we’re taking a moment to celebrate a milestone.

    This week, Dimed Out celebrates it’s 2nd anniversary and to commemorate such a suprising landmark I’ve put together a good old fashioned compilation episode.

    Whether you’ve been with Dimed Out for a while or you’re new to this strange little adventure, this is a great episode to dive into as it stitches together a variety of archived clips that take you you through the origins, guests, topics, and developments over the last 2 years.

    To everyone who’s listened, participated, shared, told their grandparents about the podcast or just generally been supportive, a great big stinking thank you, from the bottom of my usually non-plussed northern heart.

    Season 4, Episode 6 - Bizarrism with Mercer Blackwell

    Season 4, Episode 6 - Bizarrism with Mercer Blackwell

    Alright gang, this week I’m joined by Bizarrist and TikTok personality Mercer Blackwell.

    Mercer was kind enough to give me a crash course on the world of Bizarrism and a little glimpse into his live show. From swallowing coat hangers and creating personal souvenirs inside his body, Mercer has been heavily invested in curating memorable experiences for people through his unique performances.

    Potentially gippy inducing stage tricks aside, we also dive into the educational side of his TikTok output. From space toilets to hostile architecture and beyond.

    If you’ve enjoyed this episode (which you most definitely have) then be sure to check out more of Mercer’s output via the link below.

    Season 4, Episode 5 - Rage Room

    Season 4, Episode 5 - Rage Room

    Alright gang, this week we’re letting it all out of our system.

    In the first (of hopefully more) experience episodes in Season 4, I smashed the bejesus out of some Christmas crockery.

    Rage Rooms or Smash Rooms as they’re also known, seem to have grown in popularity since and during the pandemic. Admittedly they do seem to be quite the cathartic release. To see if this is the case or if they’re simply just a gimmicky day out, I visited a local Rage Room and let rip upon a crate of glass bottles and other smash-able items.
