Skruins and Co Breakfast Show

We’ve done 100 of these things now. You know the drill. No write up is going to make you start caring. That’s fine. This episode isn’t for the fair-weather listeners. It’s for the hardcore listeners, who listen week in and week out.
So if that’s you, thank you! This episode is a party for you. Financial Brah will drop in and say hello, there will be a lot of supermarket talk and a theory that involved Liam Neeson in Taken.

Thanks to anyone who has listened to all 100 episodes. You deserve a gold medal. We do worry for your mental health, but no more than we worry for our own.

You guys have been with us for nearly 100 episodes, and to thank you, we’ve booked a table at a fancy restaurant and would like to give you a good meal and let you ask questions to a micro biologist.

Please, order what you want as it’s all on us and let’s enjoy an adult night together before our big 100th episode party!

Song: Low Talk - Yeah, but in the end we will accept it

Remember when the Jetsons went back in time and met the Flintstones? It was the greatest exercise in cross-promotion the world had ever seen. That is, until the Key of Solomon boys came on to Skruins, in their best Eric Draven make up and shared stories of battling bands in Geelong, failed colouring competitions and hassling a mouldy old wench.

This week, we’ve got one of the friendliest dudes you’ll meet in music. Legendary guitarist, Raúl Sánchez. From Magic Dirt, to River of Snakes, The Ape, Midnight Woolf and one off guitarist for Violent Soho and now to Skruins. What a climb to the top!

He talks about his first day at a Melbourne high school, playing the most amount of Big Day Out’s in history, long trains in China, being on John Safran’s Music Jamboree and tell the best System of a Down story ever told on this podcast – and there’s been a heap of them! Mostly made up by me.

We also do some Frank Tank and If I Put My Mind To It as well as a theory that will help you understand why some people are huggers and some aren't.

Down with the real estate agents!

Your two favourite New Zealand guests are back, fresh from replacing their eyebrows with pubic hair. The Mean Pitties are back on the bourbs and the herbs and slinging tales of purplos in the foreskin, bringing condiments to the Queen St Carl’s Jnr, creating Bebo for Baxter and poking a goat’s testicals.
It’s a highbrow episode that Wyatt Mama endorses and actually one the Peter Brock Award for Excellence.

This week's episode is the self proclaimed 'pinnacle of podcasting' with more segments than you can poke a Batman shaped joenail at. 
Financial Brah swings by with some handy tax tips for the Australian Taxation Office and investors will love our new segment, Frank Tank. 

Special guest cameo by my Mum and sister who were lucky enough to be in the studio audience while this episode was getting taped. 

Song: Free Time - Who Owns the Moon?

I know a lot about early 200’s nu-metal and airport theories, but I didn’t know a lot about Zimbabwe. Real gap in the knowledge there. So to rectify that, this week’s episode is with two Zimbabwe locals who talk about opposing tribes, impressive literacy rates, witch doctors and getting beaten up.

There’s also a good sadza recipe in there too!

He came 9th in the World Beard and Moustache Championships and been a tour guide for over 35,000 people and now he’s on Skruins to talk about a huge range of stuff.
From BMX rivalries to eating whale to visiting a robot café in Japan, we talk about traits learnt whilst living abroad and how to grow a beard that would impress Rammstein.

Also, very happy to be bringing back the Sound FX app out of retirement for some brief cameos.
