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!
New episode out today in your feeds and on Youtube: Fresh from abandoning the entire South Pacific over climate change, Scott Morrison decides to declare war on leftie activist group, GetUp! Why? Why not! We look at his claims about their subversive evil activities and why it actually would be better if they became a dumb lying political party. Watch and listen below!
On our latest ep we look at Alan Jones blaming the Sydney stabbing rampage on a lack of Doris Day movies and fruit paintings (?!?!) as well as the Aussies inconvenienced by the Hong Kong protests.
We also look at the Australian press freedom inquiry and then discuss the state of satire in Australia in our first ever interview with Greta Lee Jackson on the first anniversary of the axing of the late night show Tonightly with Tom Ballard. Listen & watch below!
Finally a new episode is out! And it’s all about the influence of Australia on Boris Johnson, the leading candidate to be British PM. Spent over a month researching and writing this one (mostly due to other work) but made sure to avoid all the usual wacky Boris clips you’ve seen a thousand times before. A lot of work went into it and I’m really proud of it. Watch and listen below:
Also our Soundcloud account is chockas so listen below on Libsyn or on your favourite podcast app:
