Hullo, gentle listeners! This is the first in a series of podcasts in which Your Friends Ben Pobjie and Cam Smith must discuss the topics suggested by high-rolling Indiegogo financiers!

This week, we take our suggestions from @FlaresSportsman, who directed us to converse regarding:

  • Misandry: Is there enough of it?
  • The disturbing closeness of space (it's full of menace and we don't know what most of it even IS)*
  • Is the Smiths' rendition of Tim Moore's "Rock n' Roll Love Letter" definitive?
  • Australian comedy: would it be kinder to put it to sleep?
  • Will vodcasting lead to the inappropriate sexualisation of Ben?
