A very special episode with no one other than Mike Goldstein joining and reading us an Ode he wrote in his teenage years. We establish early that crushes are for (under 30-year-old) babies but still manage to talk about celebrity crushes, holiday crushes and even crushing on Saltburn characters, but never serial killers.

The brilliant Daniel Connell (he/him) joins me to chat about a variety of sports and how crushes are a thing of the past for him.

We also chat about Daniel's dreamy hometown Batemans Bay and of course, high school crushes.

The very funny Ben Knight (he/him) joins to chat about the good and the bad times he had in a tent - involving a crush and also a Fleetwood Mac tribute band.

We also cover a balanced mix of wrestling, queer identity, Albert Einstein, and good pick-up lines.

Prue Blake (she/her) joins this episode to chat about how crushes at a 9-to-5 job can be bad news. She remembers high school crushes, explains the office version of a dementor's kiss, and we chat about wanting to impress people in their 20s. EOFY parties come up a little too often.

Bea Barbeau-Scurla (she/they), writer, producer, comedian and podcaster who recently made the move to Melbourne joins me for this episode to chat about how a crush can help you stay awake at parties.

(Brendan Fraser comes up.)
