Myf and Zan are razzed about the photographic evidence of a supermassive black hole, although it’s fair to say Myf is somewhat critical of the quality of the snap. A chart topping, genre defining song has us questioning the value of traditional gatekeepers to everyday music fans. And an article about poo gives us the opportunity to talk about poo. Plus in another world first (soz Black Hole, you’re not the only news today), we’re going Instagram Live for the very first time for a group Bang Fam viewing of the Beyonce doco “Homecoming” on Netflix. Join us on the couch?
