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 41: Pussy Riot

Crabb and Sales analyse the 2nd US presidential debate, then briefly ponder why there is a Pokemon on Sales' desk. Discussion switches to unsympathetic main characters, Ben Mendelsohn's chin, a couple of new podcasts and the value of political satire.


Ep 40: It's debatable

Crabb and Sales watch the first Clinton and Trump presidential debate in a secret tropical location. 48 hours later, while drinking cocktails, they assess the debate. Discussion then switches to holiday reading. 


Ep 39: Home dental extraction

Canberra Writers' Festival. Recorded in a bathroom. Without microphones.




Ep 38: Carlos Danger

This week Crabb and Sales discuss coincidences, John Grisham novels, mountain climbing, Mormons and what it's like to get an early, sneak peek at a feature-length Weiner (the documentary on former New York senator and Mayoral candidate: Anthony Weiner).

Ask yourself this: in order to keep your place in a borrowed book, do you:
a) insert a bookmark; or
b) dog-ear the page

Crabb and Sales reveal all on this episode.


Ep 37: Medium white t-shirts

The election is over. We may even have a Prime Minister (at least for the next few months or so). Crabb and Sales reflect on what it's like being chained to a desk for nearly seven hours with Scott Morrison and Penny Wong. Crabb gets her hands on Antony Green's (software) package and Sales has been spending a lot of time at home curled up with a variety of good books. Plus: What does Obama do after dark? Let's find out.


Ep 36: Fifty shades of coughing

The election campaign is taking its toll. Crabb and Sales are both sick, but the upside of spending so much time on flights with politicians is that you get a chance to read books, watch movies and binge-watch television. Grab the Vicks Vaporub and a box of tissues and enjoy this episode.


Ep 35: Backstage at the Sydney Writers Festival

Recorded merely moments before they appeared on-stage before an audience of 2000 punters, Crabb and Sales recall some of their investigations into political drama which is based largely on real-life events. Plus, who was Australia's weirdest Prime Minister? You might be surprised who they come up with.


Ep 34: Isabella Blow

Join Crabb and Sales at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum where they visit the Isabella Blow exhibition, plus a whole list of new podcasts to listen to.
