    Yeah look it's a bit of a weird one this week. All good, Myf Warhurst and Zan Rowe make sense of it for you as per. The Queen's funeral has taken place and in amongst the meticulously planned ceremony, some outlier events have all of us talking. Yes, we're referring to the spider, and that bit of paper on the ground. The end of this long period of mourning, respect, and reflection has been felt in different ways across different communities. Stan Grant's brilliant and heartbreaking editorial for ABC News asks us to consider how the past two weeks has felt for those who were colonised by the Crown. Meanwhile high in a Collins Street skyscraper in Melbourne, a hectic love triangle is playing out and only one will survive. Myf wraps up the Peregrine Falcon drama playing out for all to see. And fans of the original Serial podcast; we have an update on the case of Adnan Syed. Mariah Carey revealed she once recorded a grunge album when she unveiled her brilliant biography a couple of years ago. Now she's planning on releasing it with new vocals to the world. And speaking of things we didn't see coming, Nick Cave and Brad Pitt are just like us: they've been doing pottery during lockdown and have something to show for it. We go inside their ceramics exhibition in a Finnish gallery. Told you. Wild week. Myf is banging on about a great read from one of our fave writers Brigid Delaney, while Zan is lapping up the brilliant new Björk podcast which unpacks her whole back catalogue of albums.

    #227: The Emmys, The Little Mermaid, The Monarchy

    Myf and Zan make sense of a week dominated by one news event, but with plenty of pop culture tugging at our attention. The Emmy's provided plenty of reminders of TV we loved, missed, or clean forgot that we watched in the first place, and a rare magical TV moment as Sheryl Lee Ralph took to the stage. Staying with the screen, the trailer for Disney's live action remake of The Little Mermaid got a whole lot of attention, but we're mostly here for the real time reacs from young black girls at the Ariel reveal. The biggest story of the week is of course the Queen's death, and we're reflecting on the conversations some are saying are “too soon” to be having, on the role of the Monarchy in modern day Australia. The sudden and sad death of Uncle Jack Charles has knocked us for six, and we remember his incredible light and legacy. Meanwhile Myf has been digging into the new Heartbreak High reboot on Netflix, and Zan is reading children's stories of a different kind, by Chloe Hooper.

    What a smorgasbord this week has been. Grab the popcorn, Myf Warhurst and Zan Rowe are going in. If you're confused about all the hullabaloo around Olivia Wilde's new film Don't Worry Darling, don't worry – we were too. We explain it all, and debrief on what's driving this ferocious hunger for gossip. A Reddit thread on sex soundtracks has the internet heaving, while Kim Kardashian's bum makes the front page again. And why are famous folks sharing hot pics of themselves as teenage dirtbags? We debrief on the Raising Their Voices report too, and talk about what comes next in the Australian music industry. And it's an epic Fashun update off the back of the Venice Film Festival. Everyone is watching and talking about The Bear too, so much so that for the first time ever we do a dual bang on about this high tension new dramedy with a great soundtrack.

    Myf's back from Bali and she and Zan have a lot to bang on about. Pool times, hanging with the PM, all of it. It's been a big week for Britney too, with the release of her new Elton John collab, and a 22 minute audio recording detailing her conservatorship. We debrief on the MTV VMA's too (WTF), and the biggest mic drop of the night; Taylor Swift's announcement of her new album. And wonder, with some help from TikTok, what it may sound like. The verdict has been handed down on Chris Dawson, and 40 years on justice has been served. And Dolly Parton saves the day with her new line of pet products. Meanwhile our foray into Naturism new totem tennis heights, and we're banging on about two great reads.

The Bang Box has been overflowing with your sweet emails, and also some nice surprises from young nudists. Speaking of getting your gear off, Tommy Lee did, but who asked for it?

    Myf and Zan are back and absolutely champing at the bit to bang on this week. Which is a perfect horse reference for Beyoncé's Renaissance album (see: cover art). We go in deep on all facets of this instant club classic, and some of the backlash it's received. We also dip into a larger discussion around releasing, then changing an album. Is an album, as a “finished” piece of art, much more malleable in the digital age? The finale of Neighbours had us in absolute tears, and we debrief on all our favourite moments and just why Kylie and Jason had so few lines. And a fascinating piece on the “ick” and how it can end a relationship has us in stitches.

Following our conversation last episode about romantic love not being all it's cracked up to be, some more think pieces on Platonic Life Partnerships have popped up; is this the bond you see yourself committing to? Meanwhile the first trailer for Baz Luhrmann's “Elvis” has dropped and we are all in, and casting has begun for an Australian version of ALONE; lockdown city citizens should feel well placed to pitch for this.

    It's post Valentines Day and Myf and Zan are catching up on what we did, and thinking about what maybe we should do instead. The ideas of romantic love have long been flawed and out of date, is it time to rethink the stories we tell ourselves? The start of this week also kicked off with a history making moment for hip-hop and culture, as the Super Bowl half time show celebrated the world's biggest genre for the first time. And last year we were languishing, what now? A new piece on how to get out of the rut has us thinking, in this third year of the pandemic. Thin eyebrows are back in fashion, and we are not having it! Bang Fam bang back to us about our chat on Pam & Tommy and we're hear to listen.
