Introduction

What happens when you sit down with an expert in making beer, an expert in consuming beer, and an expert in buying overpriced yet ultimately unfulfilling technological toys? Bounty Hunter Banter is what; giving you your fortnightly dose of pop culture!

The premise is simple; three guys who have been mates forever share their favourite stories on all things pop culture from comic books, movies, TV shows, music, video games and board games. Along the way, a range of craft beer from around Australia and abroad will be explored, and the boys will be forced to slowly navigate the effects of intoxication while continuing to articulate their mostly ill-informed opinions. Associated with the company that brings you the perfect blend of pop culture and tasty alcoholic elixirs, Bounty Hunter Brewing Co., the latest news from Team BHB will also occasionally make it into the show in between all the verbal diarrhoea, arguments, pointless facts and one-sided arguments!

It's pretty much what they've been doing for twenty-odd years, it's just that now there's a microphone on the table recording evidence!

Videos

Not enough to simply be serenaded by the dulcet tones of our smooth, gravelly and somewhat slurry voices? Things will not calm down, dear listener. They will, in fact, calm up. You've heard the episodes, now watch the video evidence of our foolishness as well! Plus you can check out all of the awesome pubs and breweries that have been crazy enough to let us in the front doors to record.

All of our Facebook Live recordings and other videos in one place - holy frozen bad guy!

Past Podcast Episodes

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.
