Pop Culture Heat Check - Quizplosion

July 18th, 2017

We're back! With a second episode that involves some Quantifiable Predictions, a Movie Recastings Warrior and THREE (3) quizzes that you can play along with at home. Feel free to e-mail me directly at drewwilliams9999@gmail.com with feedback, or just to boast that you got some of the answers before Tash and Simon did.



Pop Culture Heat Check - The Soft Relaunch

July 9th, 2017


Firstly, apologies to listeners and subscribers for being away for so long. I was on holiday in the USA and in the flurry of preparing for that trip I completely forgot to upload the podcast that would actually explain that we'd be away for a while.

But, we're back - and with a new format and a special surprise for long-time subscribers to this feed. (I'll let you listen in to discover what that might be).

This is a largely random episode that functions as a trial for a new recording platform we're using and a new format that will centre around games, brackets, quizzes and the like. Consider it a sort of pop-culture related games night in your ear or headphones of choice. Please let me know what you think at drewwilliams9999@gmail.com. Hell, just e-mail me to let me know you're a listener and to tell me bloody well upload episodes more regularly.

This was recorded a few weeks ago and I've been ironing out some audio kinks, but we're recording again tonight (Sunday the 9th of July) and will hopefully have that up very shortly, posting going forward on a fortnightly basis at a maximum.

To anyone still listening and subscribing, thank you so much and I hope you enjoy!!!

Pop Culture Heat Check - Episode 3, 2017

March 8th, 2017

Simon and Andrew give their thoughts on Logan, Kong: Skull Island and some other random topics, like the best scripted Aussie comedies of all time and movies that were ruined by one massive flaw.

(Episode will be more regular from this point forward, we promise!)

Recorded on 28 December, this special episode features a one-off reunion of Podcasting Couch members Shannon Harvey, Simon Miraudo, Natasha Langer and Andrew Williams as they discuss the best and worst of pop culture in 2016, and also play a Podcasting Couch movie quiz!

(This episode was recorded in Simon's living room with one microphone and a laptop, so the quality isn't going to blow you away - but it's decent enough).
