We are proud to present to you, the DIY edition of QTPOD!

With our producer Jesse away, Angus and Jean are on their own, recording in Jean’s kitchen. It’s all expired almond milk and yoga mats guys!

We’ve got another edition of Sux to be a Girl in the can plus we chat about the recent ruling against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke. It’s bad for music y’all!

We were thrilled to have writer and performer Mitch McTaggart drop in to the QTPOD kitchen for a cosy chat about bad Australian TV, mealworms and St Kilda drunks. Check out this pic of Mitch, in character on set of independent feature film, Cat Sick Blues.

Episode 22.

It’s 2015 and the first QTPOD for the year is a doozy!

Angus is going to be one embarrassing father and Jean has no text message etiquette. Angus talks seriously about infamous local rapper, RAED, while Jean is just seriously broke.

We were pumped to have local heroes Hudson and Henry from The Cactus Channel and Karate Boogaloo in for a chat about polka, cauldrons, their dream gigs and online dating sites. It was all pretty silly. 

Oh! And Snoop Dogg became a grandfather!

Another year, another Festive Pause! It’s the final episode of 2014!

We were thrilled to have comedian Nick Capper in for a chat about his life as a new Melbourne dirt bag, audition call backs plus Nick gives us the lowdown on some of the craziest gigs ever at cult comedy night, Phuklub.
