Speaking with Joe's close companion and fresh newbie to the Aussie cannabis industry was an absolute riot - and not just because we were all stoned as fuuuuuck. We cover G's intro to cannabis, her feelings on being a 'stoner', and a bunch of other very-tangentially related stuff. We take the definition of 'cannabis podcast' a little liberally, here. Check out instagram user @mszcannabeech ( for more amazing content! Thanks for coming on the podcast, G - we can't wait to have you on again!

Toking With Chris

Chris is a travel expert. We filmed this podcast before the COVID-19 Outbreak.... so a lot of these discussion points might seem a little strange. Oh boy, strap yourself in (assuming you aren't already in lockdown!)

Talking Drug Decriminalisation With QLD Greens MP Michael Berkman

A couple of weeks ago, the FAB crew brought their ZOOM microphone to the Indooroopilly office of Michael Berkman - a representative in favour of the drug law reform laid out in the Queensland Productivity Commission report. … As one of the only members of our Queensland State parliament explicitly in favour of transformative policy approaches in this area, we wanted to sit down with him and discuss the recent goings-on in the state - including the comments by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk which rejected findings from a State Government body. … We also talk politics more broadly, and cover the election - after all, Berkman is the incumbent candidate for the seat of Maiwar in Brisbane.

A Dialogue With Medicinal Healer Jenny Hallam

On the eleventh episode of the FRIENDLY AUSSIE PODCAST, we talk casually with one of Australia's leading cannabis activists and advocates - Jenny Hallam. Jenny is well known for supplying cannabis oil to chronically ill patients who lack access to legal medicinal treatments. Her highly selfless acts garnered a lot of public attention around her court case. In 2019, Hallam was let off her supply and manufacturing charges without a conviction.… Now, in our first podcast of the decade, we talk all kinds of nonsense with his hero of a healer.
