The Half Decent Cast TNG: Hijacked for cross promotional purposes
Welcome to the episode in which the hosts of another podcast take over so they can get some more exposure. Talking New Year’s celebrations, boys, and kissing it’s a triple XX chromosome dose on this week’s THDC by three of newest contributors. Alysha, Jess & Georgia have a new podcast based on our Newbies at the movies article series. Filling the holes in their cinema-loving amour our intrepid podcasters sit back and watch films from long before they were in high school that previous generations take for granted. How do they hold up? Do the original intentions of the film maker still come through clearly or are films really just snapshots of the period they were made and how they saw other periods? These are just some of the questions asked, and sometimes answered fortnight by fortnight on Newbies at the movies. But that’s all over at Newbies at the movies, coming out next week on iTunes, Stitcher and all sorts of other places. Get on it! But if you want a little taste of the start, never fear; we’ve added the first episode to the end of this week’s THDC. Theme music for this episode of THDC and Newbies at the movies is by Alex Jacobs, find more of his music on soundcloud by searching ibrokemynailgun. Incidental music for Newbies at the movies is provided from www.bensound.com

The Half Decent Cast TNG: Meat guilt, fangirling, & do women know cars?
We're rhyming with Yoda this week as three girls and a bottle of jack, wait no that's Nick take over the mics. Georgia, Alysha, and Jess take over and bring a sprig of fresh laughter and giggling to an hour's podcasting. This week we talk about 'meat guilt' and the different kinds of flirtations we've had with vegetables, talk a little cow. Moving on from there we find out whether or not we really do fangirl over anything anymore and figure out what that really feels like. capping off the episode Georgia poses the question "do men really know more about cars?" It's an episode where Nick comes up with some inventive and down right illegal ways to make money on the DL when working in supermarkets and hospitality. It's fun and silliness with tales of life mixed in for good measure... come on down and explore the wide half decent world we live in! P.S. does anyone know if you can bunny hop at 80km/h?

The Half Decent Cast TNG: Secret Societies, Governments, & Taboo
Georgia, Nick & Julian discuss a few what ifs this week. What are secret societies? What are they all about? How do you join them? All good and interesting questions, that really aren't answered. Moving on to governments and what we'd do to change them or just start our own. Oligarchy, Democracy, Monarchy, Conglomeration, Communist paradise? what works? what are the benefits and who would rule? Thirdly we talk general taboos and contemplate which we'd bring in. It's an odd week of natter fore thought with just a smattering of sleep deprivation.

The Half Decent Cast TNG: Half Decent Hypotheticals I
It's a triptych of hypothetical this week as Julian, David and Nick discuss their ultimate holidays, time travelling and taking credit for stuff. In theory. From the wilds of a continent to the era of Vikings the guys ruminate on what could be in their wildest imaginings. It's not so much a window into people's souls this week as it is more a glimpse into their fantasies and what we find intriguing and fun.

The Half Decent Cast TNG: Halloween, Fast Food, & Cannibals
Should Australia just adopt Halloween, what is the best go to fast food and How much for you to try a shank of human meat? These be the questions, three poised before the five interloping podcasters this week on The Half Decent Cast The Next Generation .

The Half Decent Cast TNG: University, High School, & Casual Racism
It's a podcast of lamentations with women and Nick and nostalgia. Georgia and Alysha jump on board and open up about their respective times in high school and how it has led to them getting into uni, what they've held on to and what they've left behind. Then just when you think it's safe and this was going to be a low key podcast we dive deep into the cultural elephant in the podcast room, Australians and racism. Touched on before by others, we figure out our different perspectives and talk through where we see the problems and try to understand the bigger picture which is just so prevalent it is hard to see. One day we'll get around to having a nice and happy podcast where we just talk cupcakes, seafood & summer loving, that's not this podcast though... and that ain't a bad thing.
