4% w/ Rob Mills and Georgie TunnyMirth add
It's the final night of B.O.B. bar and the prosecco is flowing. Alex has 1 week to find out if he can take down the actual politicians at their own game, so we invite the heavy hitters of investigative journalism in to make sure he's prepared. One of them is on a national breakfast news tv show. The other made the top 12 of Australian Idol. Let's see how they go.
Canberra Will Be Calling Tonight, w/ Harvey Miller from Client LiaisonMirth add
Alex's Hail Mary campaign to get into federal parliament continues with a man who knows politics like the backbench of his hand, Harvey Miller from Client Liaison.
The CampaignMirth add
In episode 1 of season 2 of MIRTH, we recap on a big first outing during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, before getting our teeth sunk into a new direction for the podcast. A direction that not even the hosts saw coming...
(that sounds a bit clickbaitey- it's a temporary 4 week political direction just so you know.)
The Comedy Festival Finale w/ Steph Tisdell, Rhys Nicholson and maybe Josh LadgroveMirth add
Season 1 of MIRTH comes to a thrilling conclusion, with Steph Tisdell introducing us to an ingenious new app, Rhys Nicholson holding the fort, and Josh Ladgrove racing the clock to make it onto the podcast he's missed 3 times.
Mirth or Meth? w/ Rowan ThambarMirth add
Alex has more guest controversy, Kyran has more dog controversy, and our guest Rowan Thambar -not to be outdone- accidentally incriminates himself in something. We're not sure if it's too serious cos we're not lawyers, but just in case if you are a Police Officer please don't listen to this.
~Comedian Free Zone~ w/ Alice Matthews and Georgia MooneyMirth add
It's towards the end of the season and we're sick of stand ups, so instead we roped in triple j journalist Alice Matthews and All Our Exes Live In Texas singer Georgia Mooney to add some semblance of sanity to the Mirth sofa. It was semi-successful.
The AFL Granny Final w/ Eliza Hynes and Granny BingoMirth add
In our most bizarre spread yet, we're LIVE AND SPICY from the Melbourne City Council Parks, Property and Waterways Brach Meeting, as well as sitting down with elder stateswomen of the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Maureen and Edith from Granny Bingo + Collingwood FC AFLW player Eliza Hynes.
The Welsch Word for Microwave, with Becky Lucas and Daniel SlossMirth add
We discover why Kyran's schedule freed up a bit. We also discover what image Becky Lucas posted on Twitter to get her cancelled by feminists. But what we DON'T discover is why Daniel Sloss is itchy. But I tell ya what, we have a ruddy good guess...
Dicks 'n Sticks w/ Dick Griblett, Maggie Dunleavy and old mate Rhys NicholsonMirth add
We enter the mad world of the UK's biggest talk show host Dick Griblett, who happens to not be known by anyone in the UK and yet is doing a live comedy show in Melbourne. We also have our first ever episode of PLANT CHAT with Greener House's Maggie Dunleavy
A Strange Safari w/ Paul Foot, Dane Simpson and Lucy WatsonMirth add
Alex manages somehow to book a full lineup of guests! Lucy Watson shares her London kebab shop real estate expertise, Dane Simpson desperately searches for a simple grilled cheese in Melbourne and Paul Foot? Well...look, it's really hard to pinpoint a single motif from his sprawling verbal adventure, but I'm pretty sure he visited Atlantis one time.
The Bacon Factory w/ Susie Youssef, Cal Wilson and Cameron JamesMirth add
Susie Youssef is back in the host saddle with Kyran Wheatley as they, Cal Wilson and Cameron James discuss on-screen kisses, best mates and on-screen kisses with best mates.
The Pump House w/ The Kite String Tangle and Eli MatthewsonMirth add
Brisbane's The Kite String Tangle is our very special MIRTH's musical guest and proceeds to make us jealous of his comedy experiences, and Eli Matthewson tells us a gay fact. For real.
The Toughest Job in Showbiz with John Hastings and Nikki BritonMirth add
John Hastings and Nikki Briton get 8 minutes notice that they're scheduled casual catch-up for a drink in BOB bar will now include two hosts, some microphones, an audience, and will be labelled MIRTH episode 10. It goes surprisingly well.
The Mirth Sharehouse, with Benji Mayes and Ciaran LyonsMirth add
We discover just how crap Kyran and Alex are at bartending, and Ciaran Lyons pops by to let us know why he's moved in with parental substitutes.
