True story, folks, Ben and I were sitting on his couch watching the footy when I said, "why don't we record a sneaky little podcast." And so we did until his family came home from picking up crime supplies. It's just a quick one that the critics are calling, "Classic GAM."

Hi folks, it's an all new ep of Gather Around Me with your mates Ben and Cam. This one is done over Skype, and there is a little bit of annoying headphone noise in the first 5 minutes and 9 seconds. But if you leave it before then, you will never get to hear about the Mouse Senate. So I guess I'm saying, abandon at your own risk. There's also an annoying flavour to Cam's voice throughout due to a recording mishap, but what's different about that, am I right? Ahahaha. Why would I burn myself like that? It's completely unnecessary. This is what Burn Culture has lead to.

Hi there, folks. A listener recently brought it to our attention that we have never really made it clear that every episode of Gather Around Me is intended as a live Brewster's Millions commentary, so we decided to rectify that.

Play this podcast alongside the 1985 film Brewster's Millions for best effect.
