This episode has been updated to fix the interruption during the interview with Christos Tsiolkas. Thanks to everybody who alerted us to the issue. Unfortunately it happened while John was away but thankfully he had enough raw files with him to get us a fix. Feel free to download the episode again if you want a “clean” version. (It will still have the swearing.)

One Thing

  • Gruen Planet
  • The Slap
  • The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

See the Outland premiere in Seattle, WA

You’ve waited a long time to see John Richards’s writing on Australian screens in the form of Outland, a sitcom about gay and lesbian science fiction fans, co-created with Adam Richard. Well, now you have your chance.

The 16th Annual Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival will screen the world premiere of Outland.

On Tuesday the 18th October you can see episodes 1-3. And then, the following evening, see eps 4-6!

John will be there and he will let you touch him.

    Why is there a Boxcutters station ID part-way through the Christos Tsiolkas interview, at about 10 times the volume of the interview, at one of the most sensitive moments of the interview?

  2. Paul Boxcutter says:

    Yeah, I love Nelly, but that was right in the middle of what could have been a very interesting response from Christos (and one I was very interested in hearing too!)

    That said though, great interview John and Brett, really well handled and super questions, you really got a lot out of Christos and will drive me towards watching more of the TV series (haven’t read the book, understand the concept, have seen about 30mins of Anouk’s episode).

    Great stuff!

    Thanks, guys. We’ve fixed this. See above.
