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!

I don't know what I'm more shocked about...

The fact that a show like The Ferals ever got made - or that a podcast dedicated to breaking it down episode by episode has now lasted an ENTIRE SEASON! So it's time to celebrate people. Break out the champagne and crackers - I'll bring the frankfurters. It's time for a Ferals Podcast end-of-season party!

In the final episode of season 1, the Ferals make a home movie about Cinderella and viciously assault Santa, a transport strike threatens Robbie and Lenny's plans – and Joe makes out with Modigliana. Gotta love that Christmas spirit!

I'm seriously disappointed in the ABC.

14 episodes in and not a single Banana in Pajamas, Play School or Johnson & Friends crossover cameo. How do they expect me to fill up my Ferals Extended Universe™ with all these missed opportunities? Oh well. There's always Rule 34...

Episode S01E14 features the princess puss of practical pranks, puppet gang warfare, Lenny in drag and Joe serving up the decapitated head of Keith Urban. What a damn shame... we'll always remember you Keith! You'll live on in our hearts! NEVAH FORGET

You ever spend Valentine's Day having an intimate candlelit dinner with your estranged Uncle Josiah?

No? Oh, okay. Never mind. Forget I asked that...

In Episode S01E13 of The Ferals, Mixy and Modigliana get aroused by romantic movies, Joe and Lenny become waiters, Derryn converts to Judaism and Rattus becomes a sexual predator. One of the above things didn't actually happen in this episode, but bugger if I remember which. Now, where's Uncle Josiah's number...

Sail away, sail away, sail away on the Orinoco Flow...

Welcome to Episode 12 of the Enya Podcast, the number one source for all your Enya podcasting needs! This episode we dive headfirst into Enya's breakthrough years with the release of her seminal record Watermark, which has since gone 4x Platinum in both the United States and the UK.

Wait... what? This isn't the Enya Podcast?!? Oh crap. Where's my notes...

The Ferals!!! Ahem. Episode S01E12 features Rattus attempting to travel to the moon to acquire a car, beetle-flavoured pizza, used tissues and Joe getting abducted by government scientists.

Join Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike as they delve into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of Australian children's TV show, The Ferals. Not Enya.
