Our old Aussie-Aussie-Aussie-Oi-Oi-Oi pal Josh Szeps, former host of the morning show Wake Up Ya C***s, was in New York this weekend and stopped by the Fifth’s Chinatown headquarters! So we decided to have a few drinks (Ed. note: Josh has lost approximately 600 pounds and is now sober, while Welch and Moynihan are still the same old lazy alcoholics) and argue about how our pal Coleman Hughes was treated by TED…receive a concise primer on the politics of Australia’s “voice” referendum…get an equally concise lesson in Aussie identity politics… promote his terrific podcast “Uncomfortable Conversations”…and recount a recent conversation that was so uncomfortable that it has been permanently disappeared.
