Excellent news everyone! The Walkthrough, our weekly pop culture discussion, meme analysis service and sometime poetry slam has returned from a brief transmission hiatus for which we profusely apologise to our listeners. Did you miss us? Not enough people talking about Joel Madden’s gross tiger hair? Spontaneous grocery decisions harder to make without a Product Test? Who’s the new “worst”? We’re here to help.

This week our gang of four – Sophie Braham, Max Lavergne, Suz Tucker and Ashley Chang – discuss the process behind writing a television recap, lament the waning appeal of The Voice, wade through the fourth season of MasterChef and imagine the creative possibilities of a Louis CK and Woody Allen union. Finally, we product test Smith’s new extra crunch chips. Will they make our gums bleed? Join us below and find out!
