On this week's (significantly shorter) episode, Gregg and Jake jump right onto Scott Morrison's bus and invent a new game called Up Cricket and then, since he's accepting roles his deeply unqualified for, they invite Tony Abbott to become the new mascot! He's yet to return their calls so if anyone knows how to contact him that would be great. They …
 
This week, Gregg and Jake try and work out if the government is sorry or just #notsorry for the response to aged-care facilities during the coronavirus pandemic...

This week, Gregg and Jake discuss already outdated information regarding the Northern Territory elections and follow that up with (probably) already outdated information about Mr Morrison's promise to vaccinate us all!

To celebrate their 40th episode, Gregg and Jake take a cruise around Australia on The Ruby Princess...

This week, Gregg and Jake spin the "Wheel of Non-East-Coast News", and (once they finally decide which states are and are not on the East Coast) happily land in Western Australia, where Clive Palmer has uncharacteristically decided to do something divisive and verging on insane!* They also muster an opinion about China's influence on our universiti…
 
This week, Gregg and Jake oppose other common sense laws in Bunnings by taking their OWN sausages-in-bread to eat. Ha! That'll show 'em!

After months in the making, Gregg and Jake finally get to catch up with actual intelligent duo Gareth and Olly from the actually intelligent podcast: Politics Over Coffee!

Check out our upcoming…
 
This week, Gregg and Jake turn the Palace (Whitlam) Letters into TikTok dances to make them accessible to a new generation.

Also, Scotty TikToks off Australians by going to the footy and…
 
*Sorry, no chocolate. This week, Gregg and Jake try once again to discuss China with the same finesse as a bull visiting a China shop and then move on to destroying the non-delicate satin that is the end of free childcare during a pandemic.

This week, Gregg and Jake try and figure out how to use their chunk of the government's $250,000, 000 arts package to choreograph a dance explaining China's influence on Labor... Well, at least one "unknown" Labor MP anyway. Who's willing to play Shaoquette Moselmane? I mean, we're sure no-one's at fault or done anything illegal, but still... We he…
 
This week, Gregg and Jake work hard to make sure they understand the term branch-stacking in the hopes they don't make fools of themselves around the water cooler at work this week. Not they're drinking from the water cooler of course because that wouldn't be COVID responsible would it? Well, only in Victoria. Wait. Are we working from home again? …
 
This week, Gregg and Jake try and stay true to their mantra of not taking the news TOO seriously and enter what they've affectionately called: GAMESHOW MODE! It's their first line of defence in a world where our Prime Minister misinterprets our history, China decides WE are the bad guys and noble protests are banned in the interest of our nation's …
 
This week, Gregg and Jake express their devastation that tennis courts and swimming pools are NOT included in the latest government handouts.

Didn't the courts ban p…
