Allen v Farrow | Test Kitchen cooks Gimlet | JWong’s Happy ‘Niu’ Year
BL + BW discuss Allen v. Farrow, a new HBO documentary series reinvestigating claims of child sexual abuse against director Woody Allen, who has continuously denied the accusations since they were raised in 1992, amidst an ugly and highly public breakup with Mia Farrow. The series was made with the cooperation of Dylan Farrow, who at age 7 accused Allen, her adoptive father, of abuse. We’re recapping new developments on Reply All’s Test Kitchen miniseries because what was meant to be an investigation of systemic racism at Bon Appetit has turned the spotlight on racism at Gimlet, the audio company that makes Reply All, with some pretty seismic fallout  And we’re wishing everyone a happy ‘niu’ year with comedian, ABC Everyday reporter and pun master Jennifer Wong, host of a pan-Asian Lunar New Year comedy show in Sydney.

From A Great Height: Why Many Ex-Athletes Crash After Retirement
For many young people becoming a world-famous sports star is the ultimate dream, but for those lucky few who do achieve great success the fame and fortune is often short-lived. Even the very best athletes usually retire by the time they hit their mid-30's, and figuring out what to do with the rest of their lives can be very challenging, which is why we see so many spectacularly fall from grace. The Quicky speaks to two of Australia's most elite athletes and an expert in sports psychology, to find out what happens once the spotlight moves on to someone else, and what can be done to help athletes transition to a normal life.

#160: Daft Punk, Will TV Confront COVID?, Obama & Springsteen
Two boomers have started a podcast, and we’re very interested in their home recording setup. Another duo have called it a day, and we reflect back on the soundtrack Daft Punk have given our lives. As big TV shows like Sex & the City, Succession, and Curb Your Enthusiasm go back into production, the question of COVID as a storyline is front of mind. Should TV reflect, or escape reality? And the reactions following “Framing Britney Spears” keep coming, as two women held under the spotlight as kids share their thoughts. Meanwhile Myf is filling the Succession hole with TV show Industry, while Zan is dreaming of beach escapes, reading Barbarian Days.   Show notes:   Slate on Obama & Springsteen’s podcast setup: https://slate.com/human-interest/2021/02/barack-obama-bruce-springsteen-podcast-setup.html Remembering the genius of Daft Punk: https://www.abc.net.au/doublej/music-reads/features/daft-punk-feature/13182412 Will TV confront COVID or avoid it?: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2021/feb/23/from-sex-and-the-city-to-succession-will-tv-confront-covid-or-ignore-it Tavi Gevinson: Britney Was Never In Control: https://www.thecut.com/2021/02/tavi-gevinson-britney-spears-was-never-in-control.html Industry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbM84z4XYgc&ab_channel=HBO Barbarian Days: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18693910-barbarian-days Email us: bangon.podcast@abc.net.au   Bang On is recorded on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation.
