Skruins and Co Breakfast Show

Aaron Osborne and I are pretty much twins, in the same way that Danny Devito and Arnold Schwarzenegger are twins. I'm probably more Arnie in this analogy because I'm so buff and I like riding a bike without a helmet. 
Listen in disgust as we tap into our nu-metal roots, share our experiences at the Telstra Tower and having rabies at McDonald's in China. 

The only point we really differ on is how best to use a blanket on a trampoline. 

Check out Aaron's podcast, Oblivious Maximus for a bunch of good chats with good heads and his bands, I Exist and Mental Cavity.

Song: I Exist - Heal Me In Smoke

Finally been able to get someone on who can rival Financial Brah for sound economic advice. Russel Shaw from Acceptance Finance is on Skruins this week to go head to head with Financial Brah.
Russel has been the treasurer of a bank, mortgage and finance broker and economics lecturer as well as teaching Parkway Drive everything they know about finance.

But, where does he stand on the Ghostbusters machine? What does he think about real estate agents? Does he have a credit card?

Brace yourself for a finance heavy discussion from two fiscal masterminds.

Song: Russel Shaw – What More Can I Say?

Tom Lyngcoln plays in The Nation Blue, Harmony and Pale Heads and has lived an amazing life, growing up in Tasmania, touring South America, supporting the Foo Fighters on an arena tour, hanging out with Lemmy but we don’t let him tell any of those stories. Instead, we want to hear about his early 90’s basketball card collection and that time he was lucky enough to see Lo-Tel perform.

If you like scamming charities for free burgers, you’ll love this episode, or at the very least, tolerate it!

Order The Nation Blue’s new albums ‘Blue’ and ‘Black’ from Poison City Records and see them at the Gasometer in Melbourne this Friday night (October 21st) and in Hobart on Saturday (October 22nd).

In a way, weren’t we all the teenager of the year?

I may have you believe that I learnt all my life skills and theory making abilities on the streets, but I’m a disgusting liar. I actually learnt everything I know at university.
So, in honour of that fact, I’ve got Dr. Diabetes in, a guy I met in university so we can reminiscence about the hazy, good ol’ days.

What was with the people from Mildura doing presentations on things that had nothing to do with the course?
Why couldn’t the guy teaching IT touch type?
Why did that girl get her friends to tell me that she didn’t want me to drive her to school anymore?

Ah well, could be worse, at least I’m not Wayne Carey.
