BROKEN NEWS: Obtained Documents reveal Bob Katter’s Inner City Roots

A new day in Australian Politics has brought with it yet another scandal regarding a prominent politician’s heritage; though this time under quite unique circumstances.

Official documents obtained by Radio Monash reveal that Federal MP and Australia’s least favourite ‘country-bumpkin’ Bob Katter, is in fact as cosmopolitan as Carrie Bradshaw vaping coffee through an avocado pip while listening to an audiobook of Eat, Pray Love on a Kindle.     Read more …

BROKEN NEWS: Barnaby Joyce set to receive two “of the year” awards!

Australia’s most powerful kiwi, Barnaby Joyce, was recently revealed to have received the second highest number of nominations for the prestigious “New Zealander of the Year” award. The award is one of New Zealand’s highest honours, after “Rugby League Try of the Year” and “NZ’s Most Comfortable Jandal”.

In light of this, the committee of the Australian of the Year award has announced that in the event that Barnaby Joyce is officially nominated for New Zealander of the Year, he will be automatically nominated for Australian of the Year to reflect his dual citizenship. Should Joyce win, he will also automatically receive the Australian of the Year award. The committee have also stated they will uphold the great Australian tradition of claiming Kiwi achievements as their own by moving to confiscate Joyce’s would-be ‘New Zealander of the Year’ award and have its title plaque scratched off in order to have ‘Australian of the Year’ engraved in its place.

Talented ventriloquist, Sarah Jones’ stand up show Creepy Dummy – a part of The Melbourne International Comedy Festival cleverly balanced sweet and eerie meta-comedic jokes with her witty humour, numerous puppet friends and expert shadowgraphy.

RadMon Recommends: Please Like Me

Situational Comedies, or as they are more commonly known, “Sit-Coms”, have been through interesting phases of development since I Love Lucy graced people’s tiny black and white boxes in the 1950s. In the 66 or so years that sit-coms have been popular, shows within this genre have been fake documentaries, candid peeks into “real” family lives and tales of “nerds” trying to exist in the real world. And although these shows attempted to represent “situations” between a family or a group of friends, no other modern show comes even close to being as realistically situational as Josh Thomas’ Comedy, Please Like Me.

PODCAST: Episode 7 – Tess a Fi

This episode Tess Guthrie joined me in the studio. We discover I first heard of Tess many many years ago when my Mum taught her as a substitute teacher when she was in Primary school. We discuss a short period of time going to the same high school and when we performed together in house music. Despite all this we only actually got to know each other this year studying mathematics.

We also talk about our experiences of anxiety and Tess explains how her experience reached a peak during a study trip to China. We discuss Eastern philosophy and how it can help with anxiety issues.
