In which our heroes debate the very notion of taste, and whether it's not just about what you like, but especially what you don't.

And for Andrew, the latter category includes Stevie Nicks and co, and any percussionist-turned-comedian who says it's not very hard to play the drums.

Tune in. You know you want to.

Rank #4: The Corrections, in which Andrew schools himself; Amazing Grace, more

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode Andrew demonstrates precisely why it is so risky to put one's pedantry on the line. Karl sits in on the gospel service that is Aretha Franklin's long-delayed 1971 concert film Amazing Grace, and gets down and dirty with Matteo 'Gomorra' Garrone's Dogman. Plus the art deco gem that is Melbourne's newly refurbished Capitol, the comedic gem that is Elaine May's much-maligned Ishtar, and more.

Rank #6: Secret men’s business: Tarantino, Manson, Danger Close, The Boys

Podcast cover
Read more

It’s 50 years since Charles Manson’s ‘family’ went on their murderous rampage, and Karl checks out three new projects that highlight the hold the subject still has on filmmakers. Andrew clocks a superhero series with a difference, and Karl makes the case for Kriv Stenders’s Vietnam War movie Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan. It’s all so manly Andrew feels strangely compelled to find somewhere for a beer.

Rank #8: The Lion King, Robert Forster (and oysters), Tom Gleeson and more

Podcast cover
Read more

Even if you hate the songs (like he does), you really ought to see The Lion King, says Karl. Even if you hate the Logies (like he does), you really should watch Tom Gleeson's Hard Quiz, says Andrew.

Even if Andrew can't remember talking about season one of Clique back in 2017, he really should take a look at season 2, says Karl.

Plus Robert Forster rocks, Ninjas rule, and Jordan Peterson ... well, he's got rules, hasn't he, but that doesn't mean you ought to follow them. Goodness; is there anything these two don't have an opinion on?

Rank #10: Mystify, Jeffrey Smart, le Tour, cricket, buying-when-drunk and more

Podcast cover

Andrew mocks Karl's choice of trousers, which prompts our hosts to consider the perils and pleasures of buying wine - and clothes - on the internet (especially when smashed); Karl makes the case for the Michael Hutchence doco Mystify, regardless of whether you're an INXS fan or not; Andrew visits a Jeffrey Smart retrospective and rabbits on about the Tour de France, because it's that time of year; and the Cricket World Cup in brief (very brief).
