Chat 10 Looks 3

In which Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales talk about books, television, radio, movies, food, politics and whatever else they feel like. Even show tunes.

Ep 65: The Killer Punch

How is it that some actors can remove themselves from their iconic roles? And why do some commit to the impossible task of playing real life personalities? Crabb is feeling emotionally vulnerable, and keeps revealing things she will regret, including the fact that she will never listen to Chat 10 Looks 3. Sales discusses how she decides to deliver the initial Killer Punch in an interview.

Ep 64: Let’s Go Back to My Room

Crabb and Sales are having a meal together when Crabb has a sudden desire to podcast and suggests they head up to her hotel room. Sales is reluctant because they are without their medieval contraceptive device (aka the zoom recorder) but in the moment they throw caution to the wind. A gentleman known as Mr Tuba features.

Ep 63: It’s A [Redacted]!

Crabb’s faulty oven catches fire at an inconvenient time and such is her incandescent rage that she goes on a social media rant at the manufacturer.  Sales, seeing an opportunity to soothe her friend, turns to the piano and writes a new and more appropriate jingle for the oven company.  We have chosen to bleep out the name of company involved to protect the not-so-innocent.  Oh and Crabb has finally gotten around to watching a few episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale.  Under His Eye.

Ep 62: No Nutritional Value

This podcast is a bit like a Burger Ring, there is no nutritional value and it is best you don't know what is in it. Crabb is in a movie watching slump and Sales is in a reading slump, but there is still plenty to chat about: bad movie and TV dialogue, sex scenes written by colleagues as well as fantastic food documentaries.

Ep 60: Medieval Contraception Device

Sales sets a new benchmark in creative swearing as she wrestles with new audio equipment. Yes! We have proper microphones at last! Crabb thinks the recording device looks like a medieval contraceptive crossed with a bomb and advises that they never attempt to fly anywhere with it. Brenda breaks out a creme de menthe to celebrate receipt of an audible podcast.

Ep 58: Fortissimo

Sales insists on showing Crabb visual jokes about music notes while cry-laughing. Yes, it's one of those episodes. Crabb gets her own back by eating a box of delicious treats dropped off by a listener - and we have the recipe! There's a row over who's hogging the chat but there's only one loser - tuba players. Again.

Ep 57: Love a Spoiler

Spoiler alert! Crabb and Sales watch the first episode of the new season of The Americans and tell you all about it. The conclusion: "it has to end in catastrophic doom!!" The chat then turns into a Richard-Fidler-love-fest. Sales reveals that a few years ago she was lucky enough to conduct a rare interview with him about his life. (Brenda has proof on a USB stick).

Ep 56: Nose snorting with the Thespians

Recorded backstage at the Sydney Writers Festival. Sales and Crabb dissect the history of Donald Trump's hair and how it feels to 'witter' away at one of your favourite authors. There is a sweet anecdote about Roger Moore, plus discussion about John McCain and how nostalgia has become a refuge.
