    This week on Under the Influence, special guest Ethan joins us to discuss his budding career as a wrestler and the wonderful drinking culture inculcated by the six o’clock swill down under. Meanwhile the rest of the gang grapple with some of life’s greatest mysteries, like, why are public administrations so terrible? why do game servers crash over Easter weekend (Jesus is not happy!)? And, is Dubai actually gay for deporting 15 goddesses? All this is much, much more on this week’s episode of Under the Influence.

    Sayonara to the West

    Sayonara to the West

    A blockbuster episode for you all this week! Special guest Aiden opens the door to Japanese culture so we can experience it all vicariously. Meanwhile, Nibbler feels he has to show us how pretentious he is about his knowledge of Japan while he complains about woeful public transport systems ruining his hot dates. Eric and Alex take a backseat keeping things casual with some classic trivialities like having to pay for water and to use the toilet in Europe, Amazon trying to destroy unions, cavalry charges to break up fake COVID parties and Aiden sets the record straight - trains do intersect roads in Japan (apparently). All this and more on this week's episode of Under the Influence!

    Memes, Memes, Everywhere...

    This week on Under the Influence, the CIA tries to remain relevant, a 200,000 tonnes ship gets stuck in the Suez, armchair economists, Instagram Reddit meme wars, and the Guardian hits a trifecta featuring the revenge of Karen. Meanwhile Nibbler goes on a date and Marcus the cat makes a first cameo to the show. All this and much, much, more!

    George Washington: President, General, Vaccinator

    George Washington: President, General, Vaccinator

    This week on Under the Influence Nibbler makes his triumphant return to the podcast lamenting dating app ghosters and the possible ban on freedom of expression in Utah. Eric orders a book on how George Washington understood more about viruses than the average antivaxxer. Unfortunately, the postal service neglected to actually deliver the book. Luc ponders the future of the internet after it was recently revealed the government has finally figured out how to crack down on crack dealers, and Alex still recovering from a hangover from the previous weekend shouts into the microphone about d******d kiwis who think they deny their fellow countrymen their basic human rights.

    Tulips on March 8!

    The gang mark international women’s day with Olly, who joins the show as a special guest to femsplain what it’s all about (spoiler: it was a bunch of commies).

Also a massive shoutout to Dissonance for the sick tunes! Check them out on Facebook, Instragram and of course at Spotify.

    Liberté, Royalté, Brexité

    Liberté, Royalté, Brexité

    The world is crumbling down all around us as the very foundations of our liberal democracies are shaken to their roots by COVID-19. Yet this week Under the Influence the merry band of degenerates can only ponder small portion sizes, cows wandering through Cambridge, how to talk about the stock market without sounding like a douchebag, Marilyn Manson getting cancelled, how Hitler secretly infiltrated Amazon, and the Dutch considering if wind turbines are really worth it after all (sorry Greta). Our special this week graces us with his musings on the crown, Brexit, and Libertas before Augustus ruined it all. A jam packed episode for all to enjoy!
