Fool Disclosure - Episode 14 - Zahra Newman Gives Us the Good Oil
After some technical issues (thanks for the heads up foolfans Mr Gilroy and Mr Mcleish) we're back with a real humdinger! Star of stage and screen Zahra Newman takes a break from starring in the broadway smash The Book of Mormon to talk to us about race, sex and faecal matter! We get down and dirty and, in traditional style, Dorje and Jono can't resist sharing their own Fool Disclosure's once Zahra brings out her nuggets of gold. Some notable highlights include the "Where's Your Buddha Now?" story and of course Jono's hilarious chapter of "Dating On The Squirts" featuring a French damsel and a canoe. There's plenty of controversy and critique as we talk casting in Australia and racial prejudice, but once Zahra winds up and let's loose, we fire up (or is it down?) the laughs like only This Podcast can. Enjoy Fool Fans! Another star unpacks their personal diary of shame, all for your ears only...

Fool Disclosure - Episode 13 - For the Fans!: World Cup Violence, Je't Burnell, and BDE.
We're back with another bumper episode! This one's all about showing the love to our Fool Fans! We begin with some shout outs to some of our loyal fans, and then move onto Jono's Fool Disclosure of being brutalised twice while trying to catch the last stages of the World Cup. Dorje share's his own recent exposure to some Newtown Left Wing Racists, and we smoothly move into our review for the week, the horror film Hereditary. After the boys lock horns over the film, we move onto Dorje's Fool Disclosure of the week, involving acting in a play, the mistaken identity of a jet lighter, an actress he was enamoured with, being backstage, and trying to mask his less than pleasant body odour before his on stage entrance. It has all the key ingredients of a ripper tale! Jono tries to explain the term BDE which is currently doing the rounds, and finally we receive a call from Rickard Dickens from Canada who breaks it down in far more (or less) detail, much to Dorje's dismay. Tuck in Fool Fans, this episode is full of thrills and spills, so come get your fill(s)!

Fool Disclosure- Episode 12- The World Cup and Jamie Timony
Greetings Fool Fans! We are back with Ep 12 just in time for The World Cup Final Weekend. So get downloading you crazy cats! We start by easing you in with the sins of cooked avocado, before our traditional Sydney/Melbourne catch up, as Jono talks us through his latest Melbourne cultural samplings. We then talk the wonder of The World Cup, before Jono launches into a mini fool disclosure featuring him failing terribly as the clown in the crowd at an Australia v Syria World Cup qualifier. We are interrupted by non other than Vladimir Putin who calls in to drop another of his hip-hop masterpieces. A true gift from the Kremlin as they stage the Worlds Biggest Sporting Event! After recovering from the shock Dorje gives his less than glowing review of a recent St Vincent concert... Then from minute 31 we feature our first special guest, Jamie Timony of These New South Whales and Mossy fame. He talks us through his own fool disclosure and the boys put him through the ringer as only they can! Tucker down fools! x

Fool Disclosure-Episode 11-The Unwanted Advances Episode
Peeps, we are back....after an extended hiatus due to Dorje completing his customary treading of the theatrical boards for the year. The big coup de gras this week is we are revealing three, yes THREE BIG FOOL DISCLOSURES in ONE episode. Three absolute howizters, featuring big names like Drew Barrymore, John Cornell and Delvene Delaney. This weeks focus is all about Unwanted Advances, and all three disclosures link in with the theme, but we don't want to give too much away... We open with our customary catch up on all things Melbourne and Sydney in Jono and Dorj's life, including a disgusting Snapchat that has been going the rounds, before ripping straight into The Drew Barrymore Fool Disclosure from Hollywood 2010. We then hear from Jono as he fills us in with his new Kanye West album review, complete with the Pusha T and Drake dis tracks scandal. From there we head to India and Varanasi for an Unwanted Advance that almost ended in disaster in a very TAKEN like disclosure from Dorje, without a Liam Neeson in sight. And we finish with Jono's Fool Disclosure of the week, when he just could't keep his hands off the shoulders of a certain distinguished Australian national treasure. It's all about advances you'd prefer hadn't have happened, as we emphasise the importance of context and consent, in this weeks Triple Crown epsiode, where you get more bang for your hour than ever before. Getty Up Fool Fans!

Fool Disclosure-Episode 10-The SOCIAL-ISM Episode
In this weeks super long and strong 10th episode, to commemorate the 500th time our podcast has been downloaded by the WORLD, we go simply RED on your ass. No, nothing at all to do with Mick Hucknall, although we are treated to a special guest reporting on notable ginger Prince Harry. We're talking politics, baby! We start off with a tradional life update, and once we've got the standard niceties out of the way, we whip into Jono's recent trip to see Professor Harry Glasbeek launch his book Capitalism: A Crime Story. In traditional Jono form he doesn't really engage with the concepts, but has a lot to say about Harry's peformance. What a loveable dope Jono is. A class A dope! We then find out about Jono's own personal socialist utopian experiences, at the Burning Man festival. A particularly famous tent gets a through working over, as the boys unpack unprotected sex orgies for people with herpies. FUN! After Dorje brings the tone down a notch or two with his customary penchant for all things crass, we move into our review of the week, the excellent The Death of Stalin. Just when it looks like we will get through the week without a guest caller, Rupert from Riverview gives the guys a bell for his take on The Royal Wedding. Things go a little sidewise when he takes issue with the Socialist inclinations of the podcast and launches into a spirited attack on Jono and percieved hypocrisies. He finished with some decidely conservative view points, that sound a little too close to Breibart for comfort. Jono comes home strong with his Belligerent Burns for the week, a recent gig he attended featuring the rather disappointing performer Iron & Wine, who railed against his audience for being lacklustre and lacking in enthusiasm. Get your political fix this week, as the boys give you the REAL issues, with real DEPTH and very little clarity or maturity. Guaranteed.

Fool Disclosure-Episode 9- The Camping Out Episode
The Boys are Back and pushing the envelope further than ever before. Jono starts with a retraction, which quickly becomes an update on the artist formally known as Kate Fischer. We follow up with a look at the week in news as the Ross Lyon and Bomber Thompson AFL coaching scandal stories hit the national media outlets. Jono then fills us in on his recent school camp, and we find out things rapidly went downhill for a particular student, much to Jono's dismay. Dorje shares his own experience with damaging a small child. It's as bad as it sounds, unfortunately, and involves the sometimes rather ugly side of the world of film and tv. That leads us our film review of the week, the classic 1993 Mystery/Drama/Comedy Six Degrees of Seperation. Dorje's Adult Camping Story involves a music festival in Victoria, and an unfortunate beginning to a past relationship. You could almost say the writing was on the wall. Jono unpacks another case of him being a general menace to society, this time on his way back from a camp, and involving some poor unsuspecting senior citizens. And we finish this weeks rollicking camping escapades with a new mystery caller, who hails from Rockingham, Western Australia. He even treats us to a decidely Dylan-esque, suprisingly angelic and deep musical exploration of an unusual and very niche theme, involving a look at the faces of AFL footballers from a bygone era.

Fool Disclosure-Episode 8- Back to School
In this week's bumper Mother's Day Edition we're kicking it old school. We talk Gold Coast weddings at 6am, high school shame, primary school tears and we unpack our old lunchboxes. There's dackings and piss stories and all the best high brow comedy we are now almost famous for. We unveil a School themed jingle which sounds a bit like something you've heard before but sufficiently different and crap enought to avoid copyright infringement. In this weeks Belligerent Burns we talk telecommunications fails over the phone to Manila. We run through Kanye West's latest faux pas, and get a suprise call from Rupert the Rapper from Riverview. We are treated to a short review of the Handmaid's Tale, we talk Poker and get an update on the latest solid gold gags from the boys. We also reminisce about some less than classic pranks and tomfoolery from school. If you feel like getting well and truly schooled, this is your episode. See you in the pod, punks.

Fool Disclosure-Episode 7-More Men Telling Women What They Think They Want.
In this week's episode, we lead off with some basketball, before we discuss the problem with guys seeing girls as objects or being from some other planet. We look at the way some tech guys and jocks talk about women, and discuss how in order to make genuine connections with people numbers and games are counterproductive. In Dorje's film review of the week, he looks at the classic film noir, The Postman Always Rings Twice. We learn about the latest with Tony Parker the street cat, and are treated to Jono's Whinge of the Week; The Backpack Kid and his stupid dance. Dorje derides Jono for his lack of current pop culture nous, and points to the new yodeling Hank Williams inspired sensation, The Wallmart Kid. Finally, in this weeks epic dual Fool Disclosure, we find out about the infamous Secret Garden Up The Bottom Disaster.

Fool Disclosure -Episode 6-The Alpha Episode
Mirror Mirror on the Wall, who is the most Alpha of them all? In this week's episode, we start with an update on Dorje's Dog-sit, the lastest from The Melbourne Comedy Festival, and a full review of the year 2000 rom-com "What Woman Want" starring Mega Alpha Papa Man Mel Gibson. We talk about the complex relationship between offence and comedy in the modern age. We find out Jono's Fool Disclosure for the week almost ended in a big ol' T-bagging from a Tasmanian Strong Man. We tuck into an inside scoop on renowned Aussie Alpha Wayne Carey in New York. In a special treat, we host a surprise guest appearance from the biggest Alpha King of them all, none other than Vladimir Putin. We also hear about Dorje's close shave with a Russian Mafia leader. In this week's Belligerent Burns, it's all about his palpable disgust with a Melbourne park litterbug. Such disgust, it seems, has often led Jono to having to extricate himself from rather sticky situations. Dorje also (over)shares that to many, including his girlfriend, he has habits which are remniscient of an alien. It's our "Ego is Not a Dirty Word" episode, so get your guilty pleasure fill before next week's decidely more feminine offering.

Fool Disclosure-Episode 5-Ball Tampergate, Toxic Masculinity, Melbourne Anti-Service, and Outward Bound and Scarred for Life.
In a bumper issure of Fool Disclosure we start with Jono's luddite abitlites, and find out the latest on Dorje's Audi which has been at the mechanic for 6 months. We also learn about Dorje's new pet sitting blues. Jono spills on his cousin Tim Burns and his scathing review of Fool Discosure, which ends with a Trump heavy to Stormy Daniels style death threat from his cousin. In our "In The News" segment we learn about the latest from the ball tampering saga, and Dorje gives his opinion on how it is merely a direct result of inherent problems with the mentatlity of Australian Cricket. We look at Cricket and Sportpeople who represents us as a nation, and who we would like to have a beer with, if any, and consider the connection between sports, ocd and psychopaths. In Jono's "It's An Outrage" segment he unleashes on bar service in Melbourne, and the Anti-Service he regularly is forced to endure from hipsters trying way to hard to be cool, by treating paying customers like shit. Our movie review of the week is Soulman, the blackface 80's film in Jono's dvd collection. Unsuprisingly it hasn't aged well. Our radio play of the month is a Tim Winton style parody piece, again exploring toxic Australian Masculinity. Dorje delivers his issues with much of Winton's work and those who enjoy it, which segways into his Fool Disclosure of the week, that involved him being brutalised for a week on an all male Outward Bound trip when he was a teenager. We decide next weeks episode will exlpore the Alpha male and will feature a film review of renowned alpha Mel Gibson and his year 2000 blockbuster "What Woman Want" Finally in our weekly Sports segment, we hear Jono has been roped into another year of Essendon AFL membership and Dorje succesfully predicts Fremantle will beat Essendon in round 2.

In our review of the week Jono looks at "Ghandi", one of the most successful brownface films of all time. Jono also treats our ears to the truly marvelous aural delight of a sung review of Richard Attenborough's classic. For Jono's "Fool Disclosure" of the week he opens up on his return to strugling with porn. We talk basketball and the Portand trail blazers road to the playoffss. We finish with Jono running us through the school play he is writing and how being late for its pending deadline is a source of almost as much shame and guilt as his return to porn.
