Nick is feeling a bit mentally unhealthy, but has some thanks to deliver…
[Edit: We made our target on Friday 13th-ish! Thankyou to everyone who donated… you’re all awesome!]
Listener! How are you? Are you good? Us? We’re okay. Not too bad. I mean not dreadful. We’re fine.
Actually, no, we need help!
We’re currently raising money to cover our web-hosting up until May 2018. If you enjoy the show, and have a little bit of time and money for supporting such things, please take a look at the details below.

Nick and James are a nonsense, but they’re the nonsense you deserve.
Also, Nick has a persistent nasal whine in this one. Sorry about that – no filter exists to get rid of it.
Also we’re raising funds to cover hosting for the next two years! If you want to help, click here!
Nick and James return after a short and unplanned break with renewed internet and rekindled anger at the world.
No real shownotes this week, because we only talk about really obvious popular culture, and Nick has to take the boys to the childminder at some ridiculous time in the morning.

James worries about easy erections, Nick wants to have a Freudian conversation off mic, and Jon visits!

That John Ehrlichman quote in full:
“We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana & blacks with heroin, & then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities…
Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

Naked (a totally unrepresentative trailer):
Nick and James are crammed into a very cosy space, and Nick is slowly succumbing to a very coldy nose. Also, James makes some room in his life for his PS4, and Nick does some advertising.
Not a lot of shownotes this week – it wasn’t a particularly shownotey week! Just these two nuggets:
