Skruins and Co Breakfast Show

I'm not super proud of this episode. Recorded on a golf course in early April, 4 friends went out and played the pilot game of Drunk Caddy, a game they had invented that involves a game of golf where the caddies get increasingly drunk. 

It ends with regret, slurred speech, giggling and yelling. It's hard listening to yourself when you're drunk, but I put this up as a warning to others - don't get too drunk, it's not a fun time. Plus, I spent the night vomiting. Although, I did find a good hat on the fairway so it wasn't all bad. 

Power through this one and get in touch if you want the rules of Drunk Caddy in PDF format. 

Song: John Daly - Hit It Hard (Skruins Remix)

There is an old wives’ tale amongst podcasters that only a select few really have what it takes to get to their 87th episode. So, it’s understandable the Skruins HQ is stoked to be able to announce we’ve just joined the prestigious ’87 Club’.

We’ve managed to raise the bar whilst wearing a Spiderman suit and concealing currency in our foreskin which is easier said than done.
Look of Love is back to keep your love life balanced and we get a nice little bow on our Tinder gifts.

This episode is proudly brought to you by no-one as we’re totally off the grid.

I once walked past a guy on Swanston St promoting his comedy show ‘Love Me Tinder’ where he was dressed as Elvis telling Tinder tales.
At work people tell me about their Tinder dates and spend breaks swiping left and right.
I’ve seen some videos and photos that people send back and fourth to each other after meeting on Tinder that were racier than a Sabrina The Teenage Witch erotic tale; but I haven’t been on Tinder. I feel like I’m missing out, so this week we got a Tinder expert – and like most words on the podcast, we use that term incredibly loosely – to talk about his Tinder tales over a glass of fine whisky.

Hi, Skruins world. Meet Ricky. He plays guitar in the Brian Jonestown Massacre and is incredibly good at breaking molars and getting idiots to leave the party.
He tells a few tour stories, shares his experience of being a producer in China as well as tour managing Chinese bands across North America.

I love it when someone comes on who hasn’t heard the podcast and rolls with everything and is easy to talk to, even more so when they travel to my house just to do it. Ricky ticks all those boxes and that’s why he rules.
