In 2010 Joel and his girlfriend moved from Sydney to Berlin. After a month she left him and flew back home to be with a tattooed barista who was in a band. To try and win her back, he sent her over 90 minutes of audio recordings that contained horrendous anecdotes, Hollywood cliches and he even passed off Pearl Jam lyrics as his own.

He recently found these files and instead of hiding the shame, he sat down with some friends, comedians and a therapist to analyse the lies, depression and desperation that a break up brings.
