How Do We End This?
In the season one finale we talk about way too many things! We talk about earthquakes and the Matrix movies (including Iris and Emmett both trying to explain them to each other). Emmett poses hypotheticals about time travel and brains in computers. We talk about subscriptions and the future of media, and board games and Halloween and Christmas! Also, there's a special surprise at the end of the episode!

The Freewheelin' Grouch Cushions
Welcome to a special bonus episode of Grouch Cushions! Iris and I have decided to release this bonus episode this week, which was recorded in person before the recent Melbourne lockdowns. This is kind of like a pilot episode. We’re still figuring out what we want to talk about, and it wasn’t really intended for a real release. Because of this, there are a few audio issues in this recording. You might notice we talk about a few things that maybe have come up in episodes 1 and 2, but the discussions are slightly different. Just think of it as a more relaxed, freewheeling chatting episode. We hope you like it!
