This week Mike is once again joined by Gough, creator of the documentary “I Will Not Go Quietly” and the production company Beernuts Productions – Gough is a legally blind filmmaker, comedian, author, friend of the show and an all-round fun guy to speak with!
Gough discusses the 10-year anniversary of his documentary “I Will Not Go Quietly” which is about Gough’s blindness, the multitude of issues he experienced after school, his own and other’s mental health & more.
As well as the documentary itself, Gough talks about how & why he made a documentary (or “docco” as the Auzzies call it), what happened after releasing the docco, what’s changed over the last 10 years, what it was like growing up with a famous dad, the importance of travelling and more!
Last week Gough & Mike focused on Gough’s new comedy mockumentary called “How To Treat Women” by discussing satire in comedy and the challenges of making a mockumentary, especially for a blind man! They also discuss comedic timings, actor chemistry, backlash Gough has received from his comedy works (& how he’s a “smut-peddler”), the Australian bushfires of late 2019/early 2020 & more!
In case you missed it, in episode 83 of GCC, Mike was joined by the powerhouse of hosts from the In The Black Podcast, their chat includes “the talk” (not the birds & the bees) that black parents give to their children, they then discuss black identity, the importance of heritage, black history month, representation in the media, reparations, the future of Black America & much more, so check that out if you haven’t already!
