LOB013: Russell Crowe’s Pav

G’Day world. This is Australia calling. This week Kev and John have their biggest episode yet. Yeah, I know we keep saying that but really this one is massive. Why? Well we’ve secured our first celebrity interview with none other than Russell Crowe (the best Australian actor to ever come out of New Zealand). And if that wasn’t enough for you, we also introduce you to Australia’s national dessert the Pavlova, as well as Christmas in July and the Lyrebird, which would have to be world’s most amazing song bird. Huge isn’t it?

Music this week is brought to you by this fabo’ band from Canada called Maticulous, whose song “Australian Vacation” could have been written for LOB, it’s so apt. Their record label is Broken Wreckords Studio.

Hope you like the show and keep those posts coming.

LOB012: A Croc Of Bananas

Let it never be said that Kev and John shy away from the big issues. This episode, they confront squarely the national crisis that has shaken every Australian household to its very foundation: the Australian banana shortage. Restaurant menus are changing, school children are suffering, monkeys are starving… think of the monkeys! Before you brave the banana black market (the black banana market?), make sure you have all the facts. It’s a jungle out there.

Also this episode, John takes a moment to share his revealing encounter with an Ozzie Osborne impersonator. I think the less said about that here, the better.

And for those who enjoyed (and survived) the last time, John again shares his practical tips for surviving an encounter with Australian wildlife. This episode, we look at the scariest Australian native of them all: the crocodile. Find out why those long pants might not be the best thing to wear on your next trip to Tropical North Queensland.
