    This is an epic opus of Bunga Bunga proportions this time. Tim Ferguson & Maynard journey through the world for 90 minutes with no clear destination or known format.

    Some of the topics covered in this show are: Cinderella, fracking, Maynard invents a Mardi Gras costume, our listeners invent their own religions, Dad’s Army, the French, South Australia, Buffy, waitresses, working for free and Walker – Texas fucking Ranger..
