TWO PEOPLE. ONE SOUL. THREE EGOS, AND A PAIR OF WASHING UP GLOVES. ​

Shy Teli and Ilyas Kassam navigate the complex world of truth, romance, hell and housework. With a penchant for nonsense as well as philosophy their realisations are as comic as they are profound. Sometimes insightful, sometimes funny, always absurd, these two oddballs journey towards the abyss of ridiculousness, hoping to stumble upon enlightenment without exerting the slightest effort to do so. If you are looking for an existential comedy to heal you from the banality of existence and the pains of washing up, this may well be the sonic lexiprone you are looking for. ​

Riveting

I was listening to the podcast while driving around durning the Covid-19 shut down and I do not know if it’s the fact no where was open to stop or the fact that everything was so thought provoking, I couldn’t stop listening. Regardless I enjoyed listening to their thoughts and beliefs unfold along side my own.

Met Shy in Strangelove - he was so buying so many 3 dollar beers and then cajoled me into downloading this podcast. It’s Surprisingly brilliant! Much better than I was expecting.
