Episode 7: Perfectly Good Podcast – Family

In this podcast Tripod and Andrew Pogson explore “Families”… for a few moments before they get back onto gently rambling stories that go nowhere and everywhere.

And where do Tripod find themselves this week? Why our Nation’s Capital of course – or as Andrew refers to it; “a perfectly lovely city that will forever be scarred blessed by Andrew’s sax playing”.

Episode 6: Perfectly Good Podcast – Themes

PrintThemes. What are they, and where do they come from? Tune in to this episode to find out that the only theme this podcast has in common with Themes is the theme of talking a lot about all things that aren’t the theme.

So in some ways, aren’t Tripod holding true to the greatest theme of all?

And did we mention TRIPOD MAILBAG?! As Tripod and Andrew Pogson find themselves torn apart (geographically) for the second episode in a row, they decide to sooth their woes by reading out (and answering) questions from the listeners with varying degrees of success.

Featuring Theme-y songs like Main Theme From Tosswinkle The Pirate, Theme From M*A*S*H Guy and the theme from How To Train An Attack Dog From Scratch.

Episode 5: Perfectly Good Podcast – Touring

PrintThis week Tripod find themselves in sunny Brisbane on tour, whilst Andrew is stuck in Melbourne like a criminal. All is not lost! Through the power of technology they are able to bust apart their geographical differences, and take the opportunity to talk about what it’s like to be on tour and being away from home.

Featuuring songs that are about being on the road, along with songs that were written during stints of intense boredom whilst on that very same road. We’re talking In The Countryside, Key Party and Gay Bar along with a rarely heard piece called The Rig.

Andrew also tests Tripod’s knowledge of things with a poorly planned trivia segment designed to combat Tripod’s minds from becoming tour-mush. He is unsuccessful.

Episode Notes:

10:52 – Live performance of “The Rig” from This Gaming Life

21:31 – Whoops… we’re professionals!

27:30 – Live performance of “Key Party” from How to Train an Attack Dog From Scratch
