Only having just recovered from the hangover caused by last week’s Totally Blotto Episode, the baby bros return for an alcohol free AKA Prohibition Episode to talk about All The Small Things / True care, E3 brings. There’s amazing highs (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Sony’s presentation and by proxy the Patron Saint of Hey Fam Hideo Kojima) and some bummer lows (Microsoft’s presentation, Rare in 2016 [and kinda Nintendo in 2016]). But it’s not all fun and video games, we managed to squeeze in a few new flicks (Finding Dory, Tickled, The Red Turtle) and most definitely haven’t watched any more Preacher because we’re lazy. But we will.
Melbourne comedian Tommy Dassalo was one of our first guests, and his initial appearance was so good that we invited him to be a part of our live episode immediately, then said his name in every episode since. The host of two fine podcasts (The Little Dum Dum Club and Filthy Casuals), Tommy's the kind of quick witted, informed individual who inspires others to bring their A-game whenever they hit record. We were excited to have Tommy back on as a guest. So excited that we all got drunk and didn't hit record until after midnight on the Sunday before a public holiday. We don't really talk about movies, TV or video games much - but Angus reads out a letter to Coca-Cola and reveals that he's starting a fashion line - and that he and Tommy have written an entire album about Tommy being an egg. Tommy has an allergic reaction to Angus' cat and spends half the episode wiping tears from his eyes, and Levins doesn't remember one second of recording this episode - which also happens to be the greatest episode of Hey Fam so far. That's amore.
The Hey Fam baby bros are back after a week off in which Levins finally caught up with the second season of Daredevil, Angus played 15 hours of Overwatch and The Avalanches released a new single! We discuss all of that plus make a few terrible predictions about E3 this weekend.
The Hey Fam boys are back to talk TV, movies, video games and comics once again, sharing their thoughts on X-Men Apocalypse, the pilot episode of Preacher on AMC and Lady Dynamite on Netflix, plus they finally give the final verdict on Uncharted 4!
We finally checked our email address (email@example.com) and found a tonne of questions from listeners so we decided to answer them! Plus we learnt about Nintendo's plan to make movies from their many franchises, so we try to work out which of their games would make a great movie. Also, a three word review of Uncharted 4. Great stuff.
We hear you fam - enough with the comic book movie talk already! We take a break from superhero vs superhero to discuss all things video games, from our troubling relationship with Nintendo as they kill the Wii U and look toward whatever the NX is gonna be, to how fun the PS4 has been lately with recent hits Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted 4.
It's the return of Steele 'Crybaby' Saunders (Steele Wars, I Love Green Guide Letters) to the Hey Fam couch! We tried to give him an opportunity to talk about something other than Star Wars but after an hour of us praising Captain America: Civil War (again), the conversation morphs into the most glorious hour of Star Wars geekery, when we discuss our problems with the Star Wars comics, the latest young adult novels and Steele's new Star Wars parody news website. May the 4th be with you fam.
We saw the latest Marvel movie last night and stayed up late reviewing it! Did we love Captain America: Civil War or are we now on suicide watch after having our hopes and dreams crushed by another superhero movie? Find out if you need to keep #prayingforangus by listening!
Hey Cam! Our 'no guests streak' has been broken! We finally invited the last member of our once-rival podcast The Blank Slate Movie Podcast to come do an episode with us - comedian and film therapist Cameron James. Under the professional guidance of Angus's family doctor, Dr Chow, Levins and Cam join forces to help manage Angus's expectations for upcoming movie blockbusters. Is it OK for us to get excited about superhero movies? What about children's literature adaptations like The BFG? Is Levins a bad person for kind of wanting to see The Angry Birds Movie? Cameron James answers all these questions and more.
We're back for another therapy session for Angus after he was traumatised by BVS. Doctor's orders? An hour's worth of discussion about Nintendo's new Miitomo app, the latest trailers for Star Wars: Rogue One and Suicide Squad and try not to mention the words 'Zack' or 'Snyder' for at least one whole episode. #prayforangus
We saw Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice last night and we had a few hundred things to get off our chest about it today. Two grown men complain about a superhero movie for two straight hours. This is what podcasts were invented for! If you need counselling after seeing BVS: DAJ, fire this episode up and let your hate flow along with ours. We're gonna be ok.
Another week where we don't plan much and end up rambling for 100 hot minutes about the most important issues facing our planet right now, for example: 10 Cloverfield Lane, is it a real sequel to Cloverfield? Does that even matter? How did it suddenly get to be one week before Batman Vs Superman comes out? How are we going to manage to watch the second season of Daredevil this weekend? Can we afford a PS VR? Some huge answers to some huge questions on the hugest podcast in the country.
This week: we react to others reacting to the Ghostbusters trailer, rant even more about Captain America: Civil War and unload our thoughts about the most recent Nintendo Direct and the future of Nintendo, including our thoughts on the Zelda: Twilight Princess HD remake.
Plus! Some hot goss about our recent foray into the world of television!
The boys are back in town and down 2 clown about everything from the perils of trying to watch too many TV shows to Kanye's love of Will Ferrell. Plus some recent updates from Star Wars - the movies, the games and the comics, and we enter the world of remastered video games.
Our guest-free February continues with a BABY BROS ONLY episode of Hey Fam! Featuring hot takes on 11 22 63, the new James Franco mini-series executive produced by J.J. Abrams, our thoughts on the end of Firewatch, Angus's exclusive screening of the Kanye album and what the success of Deadpool means for the future of superhero movies. Plus: Shane Warne updates.
We saw the Deadpool movie and it was actually pretty good! So we spend the first half of the episode eating our hats before moving on to a discussion of some fantastic indie games that have recently come out on PS4, including The Witness and Firewatch.
Two boys on a couch discussing Louis CK's brand new super depressing episode of Cheers, the return of The Venture Bros, Shane Warne back on TV, our concerns about the Deadpool movie and our inability to describe the new PS4 game The Witness.
This week's guest is Australia's own bad boy of movie and film criticism: writer and comedian Alexei Toliopoulos of The Blank Slate Movie Podcast. Fresh off multiple screenings of The Hateful Eight, the three of us review Quentin Tarantini's new movie and then attempt the impossible: ranking every one of QT's movies from bottom to top.
Alexei and Angus also share the beginnings of a Star Wars script they're working on together and Levins reviews the awful trailers screened before The Hateful Eight.
Hey Fam is back for the new year with a big episode of hot predictions for 2016 TV, movies, video games and comic books! PLUS we talk about Making A Murderer, Mr Robot, Jessica Jones, Splatoon and some more of 2015's TV and games that we caught up with over Christmas, and Angus shares his experiences watching The Force Awakens for the fifth time at a 4D Cinema in Osaka!
Our last best 0f 2015 episode is all about COMIC BOOKS! Featuring a seven person panel including Levins, Siobhan Coombs, Alexei Toliopoulos, Caitlin Welsh, Nachopop, Vern Reyes and Scott Sheens, we all sat down and decided our favourite DC comics, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, our favourite authors and artists of the year and our most disappointing comics of the year!
If you've been reading comics all year or have been thinking about getting into comic books - this is the episode for you!

We've been wrapping up all the best art we consumed this year - so far we've done incredible, informative episodes dedicated to the best movies, TV and games of 2015. But at the dawn of a new year, it's time to take an even more incredible and even more informative look back at the most powerful art form of the last 12 months: memes.
Who better to help us dig deep into the archives than Sydney's godfathers of EDM, The Meeting Tree, aka Joyride and Raph Lauren. Creators of music, culture and viral web content, sitting down with the fam and revealing their deepest thoughts re: memes. Happy New Year baby.
