Ep 321: Last Resort

Why is Glenn so Angry? Why does Josh keep laughing? Does Brett still have a stash of VHS tapes to watch? What’s Brenna’s big secret? Why did John cut out one of the best jokes of the show?

These questions might be answered on this episode.

PLUS: We look at Last Resort, a show that may, or may not, be really excellent.

There are also some Letters to Boxcutters and our special guest donor brings us some fascinating stories.

    Why is the word “angry” capitalised for no apparent reason?

  2. I had the podcast running over the car stereo yesterday, had some weird looks from my car neighbours during the rant. I totally agree with a majority of what was said, I think the show is just reflecting how much value our media in general gives to people outside of Australia, Europe and the US (little to none).

  3. I think that the very fact that Last Resort is trying to be ‘post-empire’ is what makes it so troubling that no reference is given to the fallout from the nuclear devastation of quite a large country. That these creators have clearly thought about the implications of the post-American empire world, but still decided not to show us the destruction of Pakistan is, to me, far worse than if the same took place in another show.

    Nicely put, Sophie.
