Today we insert the Probe into author and columnist John Birmingham, most famous for the novel "He Died with a Felafel in His Hand", which was made into a film, but also the Axis of Time trilogy and a whole bunch of airport novels -- mostly techno thrillers -- as well as the "Dave versus the Monsters" series.

A few weeks ago I found myself in John Birmingham's secret writing bunker, where we talked about everything from the culture wars to the end of civilisation, and from the mythology of the Anzacs to why he likes fan fiction. We also mention his blog "The Burger" at http://cheeseburgergothic.com.

This episode was recorded on Monday 4 June 2018 in Brisbane, Australia.
