Drifting Off Live in Brooklyn, February 24th: https://wl.seetickets.us/event/joe-pera/578625?afflky=Murmrr

I am excited to share with you this new episode, a trip to a place where it is currently summer, Australia. 

Not that you and I are afraid of the cold but a number of coincidences have been pointing me towards that weird southern continent lately so I figured we’d see what it’s about. I called some comedians I know from the region and asked them to share what’s going on. They’re some of my favorites so I included some of their work as well as a link to the new album by Cut Worms who composed the score for us this month. 

I also wanted to let you know that after this episode, we’ll be taking a break for a bit. It’s just a lot to manage while touring and I want to make sure all of the episodes are special and high-quality. 

Thank you so much for your support this past year - we always wanted to continue our previous sleep work and you gave us the opportunity to create 12 new pieces (including WaterfallTV), not to mention the extended editions. 

It means a lot to us and all the musicians and comics you supported well. We hope you got some good laughs and good nights of sleep while listening. 

We’ll be back but in the meanwhile, follow Ryan on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hollandpatentpubliclibrary/ 

Thanks again and we hope you’ll enjoy the episode, 

Joe and Ryan and Grant

You're going to be here. Oh my favorite Australian smell God! There's a view. Are you sure I can't do my top 20?


People talk about how Kucubur is laughing and that's like one of the first things you can hear in the morning.


Like I think a distinct Australian experiences walking to school in the morning and hearing


like all the different birds and stuff.


When I was a kid when I used to play cricket, my first bat was a cookabar bubble.


And that was, um, that was really cool. I mean I was born sort of near the rainforest and I love that


that sort of smell when you go on a bushwalk. I don't know enough about file up but I would say that the mob is involved. That's what I've heard but he also had a really big heart.


A bushwalk you're sort of... He also had a really big heart.


A bush walk, you're sort of really right in the, right in the thicker things.


You're walking between two huge rocks, and're heard the squelch of mud.


I do think Australians are very funny.


I generally think Australians are some of the funniest people in the world and not even


just the comedians, just regular Australians.


I think American people think English people like geniuses and they think Australians is stupid. Is that rude to say?


But did I mean an Australian will say something like amazing? Like'll be doing like an equation and the American


be like oh my god what do you say what and then the English person will be like where's the toilet?


Now he's a genius oh my god! God.


What do you think of when you think of Australia? For me, it's this YouTube clip.


Today I was going to show you something that as a kid growing up we always used to have,


when we went down to visit my grandparents on the coast and


it's just something so delicious and simple and easy and it's just something that we love here in Australia. It's called a chip buddy.


It tastes great. It's full of fat and fiber and it's going to get your mouth watering. let me show you how to make one come on
