The Sweetest Plum Podcast
Declan Fay and Nick Maxwell rant, rave and ramble their way through whatever is winding them up this week. Twenty Minutes of barely concealed bitterness, masquerading as social comment from two extremely out of work comedy writers.

It's our annual live Christmas show from Trades Hall. With special thanks to Gateso.

Nick and Dec first met while writing for Rove, so they tracked Rove down and recorded an episode in his unusually small hotel room. With special thanks to Malik.

The title makes it sound like an old film noir movie, but it's really not.

Background Reading for this episode: The Encyclopedia of Flowers, Matthew Flinders Cat and 100 Mr Men Books.

Why Nick wouldn't survive in prison, why Dec should learn to pay his registration on time and why life never turns out like Days of Thunder.

On our 80th show anniversary, Nick tries a new career, Dec learns a new term and we both experience another traumatic flashback to our previous employer. Proudly bought you by by a very successful and well regarded wholesale butcher.

Sorry for the delay. This is the last one we recorded before Dec disappeared to have a kid...

Dec is confused by maths, Nick is confused by massage, and some kid Dec went to school with is very confused about Frank Sinatra.

The second live plumcast, recorded at the grand old time of 11pm on a Thursday night, with Dave Quirk, Steven Gates and the wonderful Geraldine Quinn. There is drink involved.

Recorded in the prime time of 11pm last thursday. It faetures Steven Gates on guitar, Lawrence Mooney on left wing rants and Wilbur Wilde on Alto Sax and very long, but highly amusing Oz Rock anecdotes. Apologies for the occasional buzz and crackle in the audio, the old Commodore 64 had black smoke pouring out of it by the end of the night. There's one more live show to come, this Thursday, April 18 at Trades Hall. You can grab tickets on the door.

Our resident musician, Steven Gates, invites us into his home and plies us with alcohol. There's bad impressions, arguments about song lyrics and we all end up disclosing our teenage graffiti tags. And Don Henley is somehow implicated in the whole thing.

There's a brand new plumcast with a special guest coming real soon, but before then, here's a slightly gratuitous piece of self-promotion for our live gigs at Trades Hall for the Melbourne Comedy Festival on April 11 and April 18. Most of it is Nick worrying about whether anyone will turn up, whether it will be any good, or whether he'll just be abused by drunks at the bar. Book tix here..

After almost a year Ryan Shelton lets us back in his kitchen and we waste alot of time thanking him for doing so. Then we spend way too long talking about Pat Cash. The rest of it is pretty much about Nick's paranoid run-ins with members of the public.

Nick tries boiling all his anxiety down to a single high-pitched noise, while Dec shells out hundreds of dollars for a bucks night. And why it's never a good idea to talk about Johnny Pancakes. Hang in their long enough, you can hear Nick's Big Boy fantasy.

Nick decides this year will be all about the thumb. Dec finds out why all your goods should be sold fully furnished. And we both wonder how the hell to develop a swagger. PS - Sorry this episode is up late, we've thrown in a few extra minutes to make up for it. (Plus it was finished at 2.30am the day Dec came back from holidays and he couldn't be bothered working out which bit to cut out)

It's the last hours of 2012. Nick wants to crack out the mistletoe one last time. And Dec just wants to buy a safe couch, but it's not as easy as you think.
