CONTENT WARNING: This episode involves discussion of sexual assault

Daniel Sloss is a Scottish comedian who has sold out shows around the world, appeared on Conan shitloads of times and has two specials on Netflix. I'm also lucky enough to consider him a friend.

Daniel's latest show X deals with toxic masculinity and his personal response to an incident involving the sexual assault of a friend. It's a funny and thoughtful response to gender politics, call-out culture, sexual violence and #MeToo. In this conversation (recorded back in March), Daniel and I have a frank and at times tricky conversation about how to navigate this kind of terrain, the ethics of writing offensive and dark comedy and how we can all try to make the most of this cultural reckoning with the widespread scourge of sexual misconduct.

We also have a few laughs. 

I'm keen to hear any and all feedback on this episode: my email is tom@tomballard.com.au
