  1. Hey guys, love your podcasts and blog posts, thanks for the great content. I’ve noticed that Michael has mentioned Hamerotz quite a few times and it sounds like he’s watched the show before. I was wondering, if he has, how does he find them? The episodes are geoblocked on the show’s respective channel’s website, and I can’t find them anywhere else around the internet save for the first episode on YouTube.

    Regardless of whether or not you get back to me, thanks for putting in the time to this blog, I really enjoy it (I officially started following it today but have been paying attention to it for quite a while)!


    • Hi Carl,

      Thanks for the kind words. I’ve not actually seen a full episode, but I’ve seen clips of some of the more…creative tasks and obviously read the write-ups. It’s been one of our missions over the past few years to get it subtitled so we can cover the living hell out of it (especially with the second episode of the new season, which we know a little about!)

      Thanks again,
