It’s that time of year again, Egg-nog, presents and podcasts it’s our special Christmas episode - it only comes but once a year (like our girlfriends), so lets get festive! On this episode we see how R-kelly has been spreading Xmas cheer (or Xmas fear) with his new album, we chat a bit more about Rogue One now that Harley has seen it and we also have a mini review of the film ‘Cheap Thrills’, which we may have already talked about, it’s just that Harley is a year behind in films. Other festive delights include a plea to our fans to help us in filming some new Older pickups and a big lesson on trusting your gut when it comes to movie making. We also talk shooting masturbation time-lapses (no pun intended) new auditions and a severe road rage incident. Harley also has an update on his butt. Spoiler alert, it’s not good, but it IS good podcast material so what are you waiting for? Lets get Merry!
On this episode of the Guy and Harley Podcast we accidentally get drunk and talk about the new Star Wars movie with VERY MILD spoilers, which transitions into a compelling discussion about casting actors who are no longer alive and using CGI to create new performances. We react to the news that New Zealand's Prime Minister has resigned effective immediately and what we think of his replacement. Harley has also had an audition and performed in a music video. The crazy masturbating Trump supporter is back and is our podcast more offensive than we think it is? Maybe.
There's plenty to ponder, so hit download and tune in!

We also talk about editing and Older pickups and we revisit the mystery porch pooper from previous episodes, a new fan theory has emerged which is rather compelling although we now have to classify this as a cold poo case. We’re back, there’s so much to talk about jump on in!
Harley spoke and performed poetry at TEDxRuakura 2016, here is the audio from his performance.
"Through poetry Harley hopes to draw attention to a few of humanity’s demons, in order that we can address them. Take globalisation for example, neither good nor bad, it’s simply a progression of our global civilisation. It can be “a tool for good or evil”, says Harley. “On the one hand it has given us sweatshops, but on the other hand it has given us as individuals in the first world the power to affect real, positive change with small day-to-day decisions and purchases.”
This new outlook on life has inspired and motivated Harley to help others experience the shift for themselves. Harley knows the power of ideas to change, and that it’s up to us to decide what we want to do with this power. “We need to create a new system that values life over money”, something Harley admits is easier said than done. Perhaps we just need to recognise the gravity of our situation, and need a little push in the right direction."
