Nick is joined by Nic from Pynk Spots for a DEEP dive into Bo Burnham’s musical comedy and what “content creators” (which is just about everyone in the age of social media!) can learn from his work. We mainly discuss his latest Netflix special ‘Inside’ but also touch on his previous specials ‘Make Happy’ and ‘What?’ – both of these are also available on Netflix.


Please spread the word about our show, for example by sharing our episodes on Facebook and Twitter, so they reach more people. Our most recent episode is always our pinned post at the top. Thanks 🙂


The music is all from Bo Burnham! It includes: Content from ‘Inside’, Can’t Handle This (Kanye Rant) from ‘Make Happy’, Comedy from ‘Inside’, Don’t Wanna Know from ‘Inside’ and Art is Dead from ‘What?’.

We also discuss identity politics and implicit bias – for more on this, take the Harvard Test and watch this show on SBS.

We mention Nandos cashing in on the queer market. For more on animal exploiting fast food corporations making money off the queer movement, check out Jess Ison’s talk: “Do Gay People Even Eat Fast Food?” Queering animal liberation (animalizing queer?) which we played on episode 140.

We spotted this in Leeds.

We finish the episode by discussing Jack’s involvement with Leeds Survivor Support Group, “ideal victims” and male victims of sexual assault. There is a video on this topic but we will add a content warning for discussion of sexual assault and very frequent use of “the r word”: link for video.

Jack has set up this important group.
