This week we're talking about the arts! Yes it's our acting episode, Guy talks about his trip to New Plymouth to Tropfest and watching the film he starred in 'Fishman 3: The Casting Tape' for the first time in front of a crowd of 2000 people. Harley talks about his new role in a feature film and how he accidentally ignored some crucial aspects of his character until after he'd already filmed some of his scenes.
We also talk about our most recent acting work performing in a new Sketch comedy series for Maori TV. We discuss when acting goes bad and did Guy steal a part that was meant to be Harley's? Harley also has an update about his Butt for the Butt chronicles and we pay tribute to another fallen brother Bill Paxton on 'Who's Dead This Week'.
On this episode Harley becomes an unintentional gay meme when a leaked photo from a recent acting shoot pops up on Facebook. We give a shout out to some members of the Hardy Hundy who have been supporting the cause and Harley has beaten out Guy for a new acting role that pays a lot more than Uber.
Speaking of Uber Guy's talking about more of his pet peeve's dealing with the public and Harley's attitude towards Uber drivers sends Guy into a complete rage, it's almost the Poetry incident all over again. Guy is also upset that an ex-grirlfriend thrice removed has de-friended him on FB. We talk about Networking vs Real-working and Guy's upcoming trip to Tropfest where the film he starred in 'Fishman 3: The Casting Tape' is one of the finalists. Tune in to the winning-est podcast ever!
On this episode we talk about Harley’s hungover trip to the Pork Pie film premiere and his purchase of the much derided selfie stick. Harley’s finally made it into Women’s Day magazine, but one of his personal heroes is throwing shade his way. What happens when your idols hate your guts? We discuss.
Harley has discovered a new acting technique and now you can try it at home. We also talk about the Sundance film festival and how Netflix and Amazon Prime are changing the landscape for independent filmmakers.
Harley missed out on a big role, and it's all Karl Urban's fault. We have some fan feedback about Climate Change and Guy takes a trip down memory lane reminiscing about his old job as a Yam Picker - that’s a real thing. And finally Harley has had to block someone on FB, we say goodbye to our old flatmate and master internet troll Jim Eaton. Step right up and enjoy the show!
We're back with another drunk episode! Harley is 12 wines deep (at least) after MC'ing his first wedding and Guy drinks four beers in quick succession to try and catch up, because that's what friends are for. We talk about secret Guy & Harley Podcast listeners and why over sharing on the show sometimes comes back to haunt us.
Guy's been on holiday and Harley's girlfriend has moved to the other side of the world, hear about the fallout (hint it may involve lots of masturbating). Harley talks about how easy it is to be a parent, and then segue's smoothly into his recent trip to the local Adult store. Harley has moved back in with Guy, but there are a few issues at the new Pigville Productions Head Office.
There's also a mini review of the film Passengers and Guy talks about why he became a filmmaker. There's a bit of fan feedback and TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT we'll definitely complain about it. Don't go anywhere this ep is pretty preaatty preaaaaaatty good.
Thank God, nobody is dead this week. But there’s a lot of intrigue and drama nonetheless. We look at filming the dreaded Older pickups, what happened? How did it go? Did we get enough Extras? Was one of our cast suddenly and inexplicably absent? We discuss angering the movie Gods by mentioning them last week. Find out exactly what went wrong, and if we worked around it. We also have our first I Survived A Zombie Holocaust super fan who has gotten a tattoo for the film, who is this hardcore enthusiast and are they insane??! We also talk about Harley’s peculiar encounter of witnessing a public sex act at on the bicycle path in Auckland. There’s also a discussion about Guy throwing a tantrum in a supermarket and how 2017 has gone very badly for Harley so far. Don’t adjust that dial folks this podcast is strong with the force!
The first episode of 2017 is a sad one, as we farewell three icons of the entertainment industry - especially paying tribute to Carrie Fisher/Princess Leia. It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. :(
We also talk about our New Years and Christmas celebrations and catch up on the latest developments with the Older pickups (which YOU can be a part of). We also have some new filmmaking beef where our practices as indie filmmakers are being called into question. Are we unethically taking advantage of people to make our films? We don't think so, but some people believe otherwise. What do you think? Harley also shares a very personal story about domestic violence and we discuss the merits of taking the law into your own hands. It's a very compelling way to start 2017 full of scandal and intrigue, jump on in!
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’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."
