On episode 281 Nick and Lotties I Think You Should Leave addiction is enabled and encouraged by Kevin, Jared and James from Thats a Chunky podcast (an ITYSL show). We focus on representations of gender in ITYSL, with the show punching sideways on gender, challenging the behaviour of other men. We focus on how gender is portrayed in the sketches: Instagram, Game Night, Jamie Taco and Coffin Flop. Also covered is neurodiversity, introversion and empathy amongst ITYSL fans. The show is wrapped up by briefly indulging Nicks Andy Kaufman obsession, focusing on connections between Kaufman and ITYSL, with Kevin recommending the video The Other Tim From Allentown as an example of Kaufman-esque comedy from Tim Robinson: We had two ITYSL discussions with Thats a Chunky and you can check out the other discussion, covering gender and the politics of the ITYSL fandom, Australian versus US comedy and references and more, on their show: Music: ITYSL music from series 2 (Netflix), Alien by The Interrupters.
