Episode 100. Now it all makes sense.. Don’t call it a milestone.
S’Hershel and I hung out at the Commercial Hotel on a Sunday afternoon and reflected on things, with podcasting, life and whatever in between. We laughed, we sung and were joined by some random guy named Darryl (Port Kembla copped on).
Remember to keep an eye on our Facebook page for when we’re having our semi regular Sunday sessions on Wentworth Street; the greatest street there is.
“Can I watch the end of the footy?”
Alright, time to kick this shit into overdrive ladies, gentlemen and non-specific folk. It’s been a while, but we’re trying something here. More on that in a second.
This episode was recorded on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Port Kembla at the mighty-mighty Commercial Hotel (now with a bistro, check it out here). I was joined by regular fictional character, S’Hershel Walker, and he brought along his two pals Paul Keys (racking up appearance #2) and someone I’ve wanted to record with for a long time now, but for legal reasons we’ll call him Tragic Johnson. We shot the shit in the beer garden, and even picked up a performance artist dressed as William Wallace along the way.
Keep an eye on the Pod Kembla Facebook page for details on when we do these, the plan is we’ll post about it the day of or just before, and those who see it and are keen to come along to hang, then here’s your invitation. Keep them peepers peeled!
In the meantime, if you like this silly thing we do then tell anyone who’ll listen. Share it around, super-impose my head coming out of a dinosaur’s rectum. Whatever floats your boat.
There are more to come, and sorry for the extended hiatus (again).
Yet another return after a lengthy period.
I may not be consistent, but I’m consistent with my inconsistency.
It’s a return on levels; back to the Commercial, Sean Sheap and S’Hersel Walker are also back.. Hashtag something else back, too. Because; rule of comedy. Something.
Laugh along with us or at us, either or. We’re not out to hurt anyone, we just want to make you feeeeeel good.
Comic Gong 2017! Sheap, S’Hershel and myself returned to the epicentre of Illawarra fandom for another year running. These are our stories. Special mentions go out to Louise and Fiona for the Co-Production assists, and Lenny for providing the “ambiance” for the first five minutes. Thank-you linesmen, thank-you ball-boys.
We start off on a sad note with this one, Wollongong Hip Hop lost one of it’s more colourful characters last week. Rest in power to Rob Tha Rich, along with the sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
Afterwards it’s the return of S’Hershel Walker, wherein he brought his mate Paul Keys over to my place a few weeks ago. We drank wine, ate garlic bread & spaghetti and talked utter silliness. With a few sneaky songs thrown in for good measure. Spoiler alert: I wasn’t the one singing or attempting any music of any kind, never fear.
This one is bad with a capital shit. Two weeks ago I went on a whirlwind drive around New South Wales for work in 2 days. I was delirious, I recorded some of it, you’ve been warned. The link to the video I was talking about on the intro can be found below.

Intro, Interludes and Outro:
This week I had a chat with Nik Ranger of Melbourne band Dada Ono. Did we talk about music? Hell nawww! That would be too professional of me wouldn’t it? Be that as it may, we had a lovely chat about a bunch of things, but it all ends with Star Trek, cats and podcasts, which basically sums up my life. The music speaks for itself anyway, for which you’ll hear in the episode. You can go two better though, head over to their bandcamp page and get Dada Ono’s album “Granny Loves Smith”, and head out to Dicey Riley’s this Saturday night and see them in person if you happen to be in the Wollongong area. If not look out for Nik and Dada Ono in a town near you!
