Even Draggier with Jimi the Kween

Season 5, Ep. 71
Bring. Back. My Girl.That’s right, with the end in sight, and for the first time in MOTM history Age & Mitch have welcomed back a past guest for another crack at the mics. But not just any guest, oh no. The boys are extremely excited to welcome back close friend of the show and self-professed superstar of the world: Jimi the Kween.It’s been a hot 20-months since the last time JTK dropped into the studio. So naturally there was a lot to catch up on. From career pivots (ahem, DJ Jimi) to evolving relationships with gender. As a full-time drag queen these days, Jimi had a bit to add in the sequel to her iconic “The Secret Life of Drag” (Episode 22). The boys get the scoop on Drag Race auditions and whether a national drag icon still picks up the occasional prop from Supa Bargains.On a grittier note, Age and Jimi compare notes on turning 30, a milestone they’ve both hurtled past since last catching up. Turns out it might not be as utterly horrendously terrifying as Mitch seems to believe? The boys also discuss the very topical… um, topic of drag for children and why it is categorically NOT grooming.All this and a barrel of laughs in what is the penultimate episode of Message on the Machine.

Your Message, Our Machine #11

Season 5, Ep. 67
'Tis time for the listener to take back the power.That's right, this week it’s the latest instalment of Your Message, Our Machine. The episode where you decide whatever the hell Age & Mitch get to talk about. After the big news of last week, the question box was inundated with questions. And fair enough. What has happened? Have they had a falling out? Did Adrian’s new boyfriend cause this rift? All will be revealed in due course.Speaking of boyfriends, the people want to know how Mitch feels about the new man in Age’s life. What does a co-dependent friendship look like in a peri-boyfriend world?!All of this and so much more leading up to our fav segment, Confessions on the Machine, where one deranged listener has their confession unpacked live on air for the surprise and delight of our hosts and the world at large. And this one is a goodie. Think mistaken identity, lesbian love, a surprise vegetable and a (somewhat) happy ending. We’ll leave it at that so you can enjoy the boys taking you through all the finer details.So as always, pour yourselves a little vino. Draw yourself a nice hot bath and settle in for this gorge little ep. Then we’ll see you at the next one.Make sure you're the first one to press play on every message we leave on your machine by following/subscribing on your favourite podcast platform and leaving us a GLOWING review.

The Catch Up Call #13

Season 5, Ep. 66
Hello dear listeners.It's us, Age & Mitch in the copy this week, to let you know that while we have curated our usual fun-filled Catch Up Call for you all, it also comes with some slightly sad news. For the full scoop on what's going on with MOTM, give the ep a bloody listen 'cause we'll get that out of the way upfront. Before resuming with your regularly scheduled programming.Catching up this week, Age has been busyyyyy over the break with the start of a new decade, a new man and a new business all on the agenda. Mitch... has had a slightly less eventful break but we'll let him tell you about that himself. This catch up call is a funny one because the boys had months of headlines to trawl through to bring you the very best of what's been on their mind. Some important things were most likely forgotten, but many things weren't. Of course we would be referring to a certain fallen Monarch, the upcoming Glee docuseries, Frank Ocean's iconiqe cock ring and two foxy morons returning to the small screen. How's that for a roundup?For all this and more, dive on into the very first Catch Up Call of Season 5! We'll see you at the next one.Make sure you're the first one to press play on every message we leave on your machine by following/subscribing on your favourite podcast platform and leaving us a GLOWING review.
