Is Taylor Swift the Love of Grace’s Life?

To hear Taylor Swift’s music is to hear God” – Grace

This week on the podcast, Grace’s dreams come true and we dedicate a full segment to talking about Taylor Swift – the woman, the myth, the legend, the folklore. Why is it that Taylor Alison Swift inspires grown women to dance around the kitchen in the refrigerator light?


And we’re also going to be talking about Sex and the City for millennials – the Stan series ‘Love Life’. Which of Darby’s experiences ring true to life and where does it miss the mark?

Episode Twelve: Did George Orwell correctly predict this season of Big Brother?

Big Brother is Watching You… For our season finale episode, we watched the new Australian season of Big Brother, a show where a bunch of people are stuck inside together and not allowed to leave the house – not really a novelty anymore (please refer to global pandemic). Nevertheless, we’ll give you our hot takes on the personalities, antics and shock twists from Big Brother 2020.

And we’ll also be talking about George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.In a world of ‘alternative facts’, ‘fake news’ and mass surveillance, what did George Orwell’s Big Brother tale correctly predict seventy years ago?

Episode Eleven: Should Dinosaur Erotica be #Cancelled?

“The dim, romantic lighting is enough to make anyone look sexy, but Oliver has clearly aged beautifully. He was always a good-looking dinosaur, but the specks of grey that now dot his scales have added an air of self-assured beastliness.” Excerpt from ‘My billionaire triceratops craves gay ass’.


This week in book club, we read Dinosaur Erotica (yes, it’s a thing). We’ll read you some more excerpts, and ask the question ‘what’s the deal with Rex appeal?’
We also looking at the modern equivalent of throwing rotten veggies at the people in stocks at the town square – cancel culture. Is it fair to call people out on social media for crappy behaviour, or is public shaming and boycotts today’s equivalent of a mob with pitch forks?

Episode Ten: When A.I. met Vampire: A Rom Com

“Artificial Intelligence doesn’t have to be evil to destroy humanity – if artificial intelligence  has a goal and humanity just happens to come in the way, it will destroy humanity as a matter of course without even thinking about it, no hard feelings.” Elon Musk, Technology Entrepreneur, Investor, father of X Æ A-Xii the child formerly known as X Æ A-12.

This week on the podcast we are talking about artificial intelligence. Will the robots get too smart and destroy us all, or is machine learning and artificial intelligence one of the greatest advancements of modern technology?

We’re also talking all things vampire romances. From Twilight to Buffy to True Blood. Once again, we are asking the hard questions –  ‘why are vampires so dang sexy!?’

Episode Nine: Are the Presidential Election Candidates “Normal People”?

“Despite the constant negative press covfefe.” – President Trump, 12:06 am, May 31 2017.

This week on the podcast we are talking about the candidates of the 2020 US Presidential election. We’ll give you the 411 on the confirmed Republican and Democratic candidates, Trump and Biden, as well as some lesser known hopefuls running for office.

And join us in Sligo, Ireland, where we are also talking about the complex and nuanced romance of Connell and Marianne, in the new Stan series ‘Normal People’ adapted from Sally Rooney’s Booker prize nominated novel of the same name. And of course, a conversation about Normal People would not be complete without paying homage to @Connellschain.
