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!

It took 29 episodes, but it's finally come down to this, dear listeners.

I'm quitting The Ferals Podcast. I know there's only one episode left to review - but I just can't take it anymore. The pressure to perform at an elite level; to put on an entertaining show, week in, week out - it's too much for me to handle. So, I'm sorry Monkey Boy & Mike - Swinny Costello is hitting the road. Going it alone. Like Jane Eyre - I've got to turn my back on something I truly love in order to continue my journey of self-discovery and Independence.

So please join me next week - where I kick off the very first episode of my new solo episodic analysis show - The Hogan's Heroes Podcast.

'I see NOTHING! I know NOTHING!' It's gonna be so awesome.

Episode S02E14 of The Ferals features Joe joining the army, Keith & Kylie declaring gang warfare, Lenny having a SNIF and Mixy being horrifically tortured by the enemy. Just like Guantanamo Bay - but with more puppets!

Listen as Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike delve into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of Australian children's TV show, The Ferals!
