The Popular Experiment is a brand new show that I'm producing that shines a light on different aspects of the entertainment world.  This episode is from out very first show and stars host Rove McManus with contributions from Alexei Toliopoulos, Alex Jae, Paige Hally and Merrick Watts.  I also finally get my "Stinky Number Twos" segment off the ground!

Hammo and Ben sit down to discuss everything from the weird message behind "The Lego Ninjago Movie", their different views on the film "Mother!" and the mindfield that comes with separating the artist and his work from the person are in real life.

Hammo will be writing and directing a one off play for the Yack Festival at Giant Dwarf in Sydney called, "Three Dances with John Tilt Animus".  In this podcast Hammo talks about the thoughts and ideas that are going into the play, what to possibly expect and the influences that will have a bearing on the finished product.  This podcast is for those interested in the creative process that goes into producing a new work.

My 2017 comedy festival show "Bunta Boy" covered the first five years of my career in the duo The Bunta Boys which included touring with a punk rock clown band, stabbing an effigy of the Pope onstage and nearly burning down the venue during our first feature spot.  This was recorded in Adelaide and was my favourite show of the tour.  Also more news on upcoming live shows The Popular Experiment and more.

We're back!  Ben Ellwood joins Justin Hamilton to discuss their love and theories about Twin Peaks: The Return, the works of Stephen King, Michael Chabon and Cormac McCarthy, nerdy heavy metal lovers and why Hammo likes to keep his batteries in the fridge.  Brought to you by our sponsor Finger Knuckle Night Club, the only club in Australia that prefers their customers wasted before they enter the bar.

Second time lucky:  Merrick Watts makes his debut on this podcast talking about his first stand-up show "Man of the Hour", his start in comedy and career across stage, radio and TV.  (Opening audio fixed.)

Comedian Ben Ellwood rejoins the show to talk about the ongoing advancements in technology and what it means for the every day person, the density of the work of Alan Moore, the hilarity of some new movies in the cinema, the best place to deal with your rage, why 3D technology doesn't quite work and why Atlanta and The Leftovers may have inspired a re-thinking of my career.

We begin this podcast with a long rambly intro before settling into a fun chat with Sydney comedy newbie Jared Jekyll.  Sure he's been around for 6 years but he's right at the beginning of his career and he entertains with stories about 21st birthday parties, being trampled by Goths and when you discover your favourite punk band is punky for Jesus.  A really fun interview.

Possibly our most positive podcast yet as we scoot through the ethical decision I had to make about wiping out some cockroaches before launching into what we thought of Logan (we warn there are spoilers and then proceed to give none away), Donald Glover's "Atlanta", the short stories of Ted Chiang, the attitude of Alan Moore and just a hint of magic.

00:0000:00

In this latest episode Ben and I talk about excellent sequels in "Trainspotting 2" and "Logan" (NO SPOILERS!), advert auditions going horribly wrong, the compulsion of collecting and Ben's amazing time as an advice dispensing rack of meat.
