Ep 239: Bowery Sounds

It's a time hopping edition of the economy comedy podcast this week as Paul and Eli take a trip back to the 1970s and the 1990s. One ends up being far more troubling than the other... In Paul's Page Turners, Paul brings along a book that is both a fascinating insight into "lad culture" of the 1990s and a depressing deep dive through a book designed to teach you "how to be a bloke". It's all a bit grotty, really, but that's what you get when you buy FHM's "Little Book of Bloke". We apologise in advance. In Silverman's Platter's this week, we hop back to 1970's New York City, specifically the area known as the Bowery. Paul & Eli listen to the "New York City" album that tries to capture the sounds and atmosphere of a colourful and complicated part of the city. If nothing else, it's eye opening! Join us on a cheap trip through time! It's going to be a bumpy ride!
