This week, the team get up to all of the usual shenanigans, playing an eclectic mix of music, snacking heavily, and reviewing things. Of special note is that that crew are joined by Dan from show sponsor, beer subscription service Beer Hug. Dan talks us all through beer subscription, underwear subscription services, and of course, so hard to find beers from the Epic box on offer this month (use code bFM15 at checkout to get $15 off!).

Kris and Roberto Bolloxo bring you the penultimate Plato's Retreat for 2020, delivering Sport and Emmerdale and another round of beer tasting (with a distinctly Amercian theme) thanks to Beer Hug. Plato's Retreat are also very proud to be bringing you Samuel Harmony's Mullet 4 The Mission, in which Sam will shave (most of) his hair live on next week's show to raise money for the Auckland City Mission. If you can spare a few bucks, please consider donating to this good cause.
