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!

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!

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.

Episode 17 sees the beginning of a noble crusade - to blind taste-test sixteen of Australia's worst mass-produced beers and determine which of them is truly the worst. The blindfolded are donned, the bottles and can wrapped up to obscure their labels, and the tastings begin. We drink them, so you don't have to. Eight beers start the podcast, but only four make it through to the fifty-minute mark.
In between tastings the lads recount their election day shenanigans, Callum has positive words about Perth, and which Hollywood superstar does the Big Dog have firmly in his sights?
All this in fifty minutes of glorious podcasting action. The big issues, in small bite-sized sips of lunacy.

The lads converge on Two Birds Brewing in Melbourne's west for a delicious Good Beer Week event and podcast. After nibbling on a few delicious canapes they sit back with a few Parrotdog, Feral, and Two Birds brews and get into it. Callum unleashes the ultimate movie trivia challenge on the Big Dog, while Kieran professes to yearning for the good old days - the days of Tony Abbott. Has he lost his mind? Or does he actually have a point? Find out, in Barry Bullock Hour 15!

Did Shakespeare ACTUALLY exist?
Have we reached saturation point for Anzac Day?
Who's raised Big Dog's ire? #BigDogsBone
And who deserves more praise? #GoldenSpatula
