Peta Dampney joins us this week to preach from the Baz Bible! Hear Peta and Moose educate Pointy on the merits of all of Baz Luhrmann's films, in particular Strictly Ballroom, Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge.

Episode 54: High Fidelity with Anthony Scully

What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?

Moose and Pointy have been waiting a long time for someone to pick High Fidelity as a topic and our guest Anthony Scully does not disappoint.
