Wagons. Songs from the Aftermath. Psychedelic, space cowboy Henry Wagons and his 6-piece band of misfit entertainers are BACK with a dark, sweaty, bludgeoning country rock LP.
3.5 years ago Henry and I shared a couple of cheeky India Pale Ale craft beers in a Holiday Inn Hotel in Hermosa Beach, California, and together we recorded 2 hours of one of my favourite podcast episodes ever.
Our second time around, we wax lyrical on overseas adventures, Vietnam Vespa iPhone thieves, Scrabble dates versus Netflix & Chill, the evolution from writing solo to collaboration in the deepest form from the stages of embryo, his love of Nashville, 5-year old daughter Casper’s 3RRR artist debut and much, much more.
Podcasting and hanging out with Henry Wagons is an absolute joy! Get it in your ears!

Nigella Lawson has been tantalising our taste buds for years. Single-handedly bringing sexy back into the kitchen with her smooth rich English accent, voluptuous physique and addiction to alliteration. Women want to be her and men want to be with her. Her life has been filled with the bitter and the sweet.

Rae and I explore the sugar highs and front page lows of Nigella’s career that are the plot of the show and after successful sellout seasons at Perth Fringe World, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Fringe and a stand out Christmas Special, Nigella – Love Bites is on its way to the iconic Bondi Pavillon for three deliciously decadent evenings during Bondi Feast!
