Go Team! Go!
It’s World Cup time, so we devote an entire episode to sports. We like to think we’re exercising our brains with our little game of piffle!, but we definitely don’t get paid as well as anybody playing football (whichever version). Our guests Amelia Jane Hunter, Nicole Ratjen and musical guest Big Stu give us an assist as we explore how athletic Josh and Noah were growing up; soft G’s vs. hard G’s; the rules for Fishballnetstick; and why players have to hold hands with little kids before World Cup matches. Plus, Big Stu scores a goal with the audience when he raps using 36 different Michael Jackson song titles.
“piffle!” is recorded live at Vagabund Brauerei in Berlin, Germany (http://vagabundbrauerei.com).

We ask our guests to send in bios for us to read, this is what Stu sent us: From Dublin. Went to college in Dublin, studied Business and Law. Moved to Berlin to work in finance. Financial crash. Freakout. Teaching English in kids camps. Tour guide. Raps on tours about German history. Rap about Hühnerhaus. Rap made into song. Song made into video. More videos. More videos. Loving it.
Hailing from convict shores, Amelia Jane Hunter is an Australian comedian with exquisite irreverent grace. Amelia is a powerful storyteller with a penchant for the theatrical. Never short of a story or afraid to pepper the air blue, she is the carnival ride that should have been closed down the day Michael Jackson’s hair caught fire. Amelia has played across the globe including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Sydney International Comedy Festival to name a few.
Nicole Ratjen is an international actor, director and clown originally from the west coast of Canada. She has trained in Toronto, Paris, Berlin and Italy and performed and worked across Canada and throughout Western Europe. She is currently based in Toronto and can be seen as the clown “Princess Penelope Pamplemousse”.
