Not one short month since the last #BarryBullockHour episode, #26 arrives in alarming proximity. Has the new four-pronged pace attack of Cal, Kieran, Big Dog, and the Minnesota Thunder Eric Cox finally fixed the Barry Bullock Hour frequency issues? Sure seems like it!
Join Cal, Kieran and Eric as they get stuck into beers and burritos at Foreigner Brewing in Brunswick, as suggested by Cal in episode 25.
With Big Dog absent at the football the boys discuss the pros and cons of taking babies to sporting events, and on holidays. Arguments of spatial dynamics ensue. Who owns the arm-rests on planes? Are modern-day economy seats a cloth-clad prison for today's broad backsides?
Cal takes his rage from the air to the trains, picking a strong and altogether deserved bone with Melbourne's much-maligned train operator. Kieran goes after the buildings that house the trains. Eric blames Cal and Kieran for his lingering hangover in equal measure, as bowls celebrations (#BOWLSCHAT) and a late night with the Tour de France turned in a long Saturday for The Cox.
And what exactly is #SugarySunday?
All this and more in Episode 26 of The Barry Bullock Hour!

After yet another lengthy hiatus the #BarryBullockHour boys are back again! And with more big brews and big NEWS?
Big Dog had a baby. C-Mac got engaged. Life bloody well happened. So to alleviate the matter of life constantly interfering with podcast frequency Kieran resorted to adding a NEW MEMBER to the #BarryBullockHour team! And no, we don't mean Big Dog's young child, despite his early suggestion of a maternity ward episode.
Big Dog rages at up some eytomologial curiosities. What is it about the Cricket World Cup that's got Kieran hot under the collar (despite the New Zealand team's indifferent form)? And what local discoveries entice Callum to not only propose the location for the next podcast, but also to create a brand new segment on the fly?!
All this and more, while drinking Parrotdog's Rifleman XPA, Philter Brewing's Carribean Stout, and Edge Brewing Project's Block O'Choc nitro imperial stout. Get those brews in your mouth, and this freshly-brewed podcast in your ears!

After an almost year-long (!!) and entirely unintentional hiatus, the #BarryBullockHour is back with a boozy, ramshackle hour of pure un-edited nonsense! The team descend on Richmond's Moondog craft brewery after loading up at a boozy birthday brunch. The result is the Barry Bullock Hour at its loud, unfiltered, controversial best!
Big Dog delves into his medical journals to chronicle the mysteries of gout. Kieran proposes a radical plan to eradicate slow walkers on city footpaths. Callum arrives late despite a twenty-minute headstart from the boozy brunch.
Why is Callum's choice of pant such a hot-button topic? Would a Kieran Bullock-led dictatorship be a humanitarian disaster, or are smooth-moving footpaths worth the (literal) sacrifice?
And which piece of Moondog toilet wall graffiti has everyone talking??

#23 is here, to usher in the change of season! Spring is upon us, and so too another #BarryBullockHour hoon. This time coming to you from the lovely brewery bar at Three Ravens in Thornbury.
Callum introduces us to the musical intricacies of the "noodle". Kieran inspires heated debate with perhaps the most controversial #GoldenSpatula yet - are Nickelback really THAT bad?
And Big Dog faces the music (not Nickelback) and officially receives his punishment for taking the bronze medal in our long-lost #SocialMediaCenturion.
Get it in your earholes!

#22 is a monster episode, coming to you from the Temuka St Studio, aka Callum's house. We're joined by Clem and Kitty and expand the judging panel for the massive finals of #AustraliasWorstBeer. By episode's end, the Golden Turpentine has been awarded, and one the finalists disqualified due to being discontinued!
Kieran somehow finds himself challenging Rafael Nadal to a tennis match.
Big Dog goes rogue (more than once).
Callum wears a dangerously trendy hat (which you can't see, but it still happened)

Episode 21 is a long time in the making, but it's here! Summer has been and gone if you look at the calendar, but as the boys settle in on a thirty-degree day in the Kensington Palace it's agreed and Melbourne shifts its season on a whim.
Big Dog turns the conversation briefly to motorsport, much to Callum's chagrin. Kieran suggests there might be ONE motorsport that might interest him. Big Dog's looming wedding and bachelor party are briefly mentioned. Kieran has his eyes fixed firmly on the recent graphic design decisions of certain local sporting establishments. There's more bowls chat #FINALS.
The beverage of choice is Nomad's Long Reef Pale Ale, and spoiler: it's bloody delicious

Don't have the patience to sit through 50 minutes of glorious podcast pandemonium? Is just too much podcast? Are your eyes bigger than your ears? Fear not! Here's the snack-size version of episode twenty!
Eggnog. Bond. Bowls. All the festive things!
December 14, 2016
Episode 20 is a raucous affair, taking place on a glorious Sunday after a round of Extremely Casual Cricket.
In keeping with the Christmas party vibe, Bridge Road's Magical Christmas Unicorn vanilla ice cream ale is cracked out, and is proven to be delicious. Conversation soon turns to cricket in the USA, care of our recently-converted friend Eric Cox. Round ball sports continue to be the theme of the day, as Callum's bowls club booze-up is delved into, in a surprisingly entralling edition of "Bowls Chat." We chat to Dave Massingham of the Sexy Detectives about sketch comedy.
Kieran causes controversy by unleashing a combined bone/golden spatula, as someone is both lauded and slandered, and Big Dog chimes in with an exciting Martin Shkreli update.
A big finish to a big year of big issues!
November 15, 2016
On a majestic Sunday afternoon in Kensington the boys sit around and are joined, surprisingly, by some guests who arrived unfathomably early for a casual cricket match in the park.
Joined by guest beer pourer Clementine West, the quarter finals of #AustraliasWorstBeer commence, and there's a surprise in the offing as one of the hot favourites fails to make the top 4.
The recent US election gets a cursory mention, with Donald Trump's shock victory left alone, but his potential choice of air-based transport a topic that requires heated discussion.
And in what we can only assume is a WORLD FIRST (because who else would be daft enough to do it?) we sample the latest offering from Coca-Cola, Coke Ginger.
Episode 19. The big issues, in small bite-sized pieces of lunacy.
September 20, 2016
The noble hunt for #AustraliasWorstBeer continues on the Barry Bullock Hour, with the second batch of disgraceful brews being shoved down the discerning mouths of the panel. Carlton United Breweries then get roasted for reasons other than their shithouse brews, Kieran lauds the efforts of a young man who successfully petitioned the government at the ripe old age of fifteen, Donald Trump's a twit, Big Dog breaks the furniture shortly after take-off, and Callum manages to participate in the recording despite frequent unannounced urination breaks, and abandoning his Googling post to hunt for treasure in Kieran's kitchen.
It's another blistering hour of beer-fueled lunacy from the Kensington Palace Studio.
