The Ferals Podcast

Violence. Substance abuse. Cheating to win. Welcome to Australian kids television in the 90s! Join Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike for The Ferals Podcast – an in-depth look at the Australian cult-classic children’s TV show The Ferals. Aired between ’94 and ‘95 on the Australian Broadcasting Network (ABC), the show has since fallen into obscurity – and it’s up to us to bring it back out of the mothballs, dammit! Listen in utter amazement as we breakdown the exploits of Rattus P. Rattus, Modigliana, Derrin and Mixy as they plot against their evil landlord Joe King, with the aid of their student friends Robbie and Leonard. Oh, there’s also Keith the Koala. He’s awesome. So prepare yourself for a headfirst, one-way trip into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of The Ferals!

Don't you just hate it when a cockroach spits in your eye?

Check out Episode 6 of The Ferals Podcast, where we reminisce about The Bill, drop the mic on Mike’s Open Mic Night and wax lyrical about Elle Macpherson’s little sister.

Episode S01E06 of The Ferals sees Robbie and the Ferals organise a surprise birthday party for Lenny at Joe's place while he's away. Shenanigans ensue, and maybe... just maybe – Lenny might even make it out of the friendzone!

The horror! The horror!

In Episode 5 of The Ferals Podcast, we delve into the deep recesses of the human psyche, while uncovering the heart of darkness that beats inside of us all. We also talk about puppets.

Episode S01E05 of The Ferals sees the gang try to win a charity competition to earn tickets for a luxury cruise. Joe and Leonard attempt to create an environmentally-friendly flea wash with dire consequences, while Derrin trains his own fleas to perform tricks on command. Yep.

Gather round people. We’ve got rats on catapults, hidden treasure and an amnesiac rabbit being clubbed in the back of the head. Need I say more?

Oh come on – you seriously need another reason to listen to Episode 04 of The Ferals Podcast? What about a puppet chroming on the tube of a DIGITAL FART MACHINE? Eh?!

In Episode S01E04 of The Ferals, the animals bury treasure and lose said treasure, while Joe King builds a brick wall in front of Robbie and Leonard’s front door. What a prick.

Pirate teddy bears, water polo and nude tiddlywinks. Three things you won’t find in Episode 03 of The Ferals Podcast! Never fear, dear prospective listeners – there’s still a lot of oddball fun to be had, even if it doesn’t contain any water polo. Sorry about that.

In Episode S01E03 of The Ferals, the animals become obsessed with watching television, while the humans undertake a massive $200 bet (in the 90s, you kidding me?) to see who can abstain the longest.

From watching TV, that is.
