Declan Fay and Nick Maxwell host One of the Great Podcasts.

After 12 years, 200 episodes, and 1863 anecdotes about kids Declan grew up with in Bulleen, it's time for us to finish the podcast and head back to the family farm for good. Thanks to everyone who listened along the way. 

But we're going to do one last final gig at the Rochester Hotel, Saturday 27 August, at 730pm. So come along and help up go out with a Boom, Boom, Pow. This one probably will sell out, so if you can book tickets now at this link.

We'll leave the podcast up for about a month so you can download any old episodes. 

A Boom Boom Pow. 

Love Dec and Nick

After a long stint at the family farm, we're back to discuss pretty much the same stuff we always discussed: Richard Roxburgh, Tony Martin, Gary Sweet, Cameron Ling, Cameron Ling's Mother, Simon Black, Slash, and some guy that Dec's dad clipped on the way into the MCG in 1999. Plus those annoying people who try to sound like they're way busier than they actually are.
