The Worst Idea Of All Time

21: Anti-CGI

Tim is on the back of a big night and wholly unarmed (without audio equipment or knife). Guy is talking for the first time today, after a 5:10AM screening to start the day in Australia and YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT... Guy has had the screening of a lifetime!

Breathlessly championing F7 for its stunning stunts and refreshing comedy while also realising the challenges of the stupid f*cking premise of this season of the podcast. Tim yearns for a trip to the Middle East after laying eyes on Abu Dhabi's welding district before the boys imagine the cinematic crossover of the century: F7 x SATC2.

And, of course, what’s to be done about the approaching storm that is Rob Schneider’s tour of New Zealand? Check back in a year to tell us whether we actually followed through on any of this stuff.Thank you to the foster brothers Danny, Jake and Colleen for sending in CATS 2, which you can check out here.For video episodes, and to get episodes early, check out our Substack!

BIG plans for 2024. Tim and Guy, along with Guest on the Ground (Guest on the Roots?) Abby Howells, cover all their bases for the new year with a combination of western medicine, magic crystals and a whopping dose of fresh air.

    41:38

The prolific Matt Heath, under fire for his choice in wines, shows up to reminisce about his time at Radio Hauraki, getting death threats on commercial radio and shooting Tim in the face with a t-shirt cannon. The good old days. Guy puts a spin on series segment Almond Croissant in a Tree (a cinnamon breakfast croissant).
