Canadian election episode!

Out now! It’s our double-double length look at the unpredictable 2019 Canadian election. We look at all the political parties’ bad 90’s-rock style theme songs, why Justin Trudeau can’t escape the brown face incident, Andrew Scheer’s weird pants-based catchphrases, the multicultural racism of Quebec and how Australia could provide an answer to Canada’s political uncertainty. Also expect Rush and Bryan Adams jokes.

We’re doing a pilot week of daily episodes Sept 19-22.

Hey everyone.

I’m finally proud to announce NEWS FIGHTERS is drafting in some amazingly funny and talented hosts, writers and guests next week to do a pilot week of DAILY EPISODES!!!… with the aim of launching a daily news comedy podcast in 2020 (if there’s any generous and benevolent media organisations out there interested in funding it!).

Here’s the lineup of presenters and guests for next week as they stand (subject to change because booking comedians is like herding cats)

  • Thursday September 19: Greta Lee Jackson (Tonightly with Tom Ballard, Skit Box)
  • Friday September 20: Jake Stone (lead singer of Bluejuice) with special guest Chris Taylor (of The Chaser). 
  • Saturday Sept 21: Mark Humphries (ABC’s 730, SBS’s The Feed)
  • Sunday Sept 22: Dan Ilic (A Rational Fear, Hungry Beast)

We’ll be releasing the episodes nightly into your podcasts feeds and on YouTube as usual. Should be a big week so tune in and tell your friends!
