  • Summary

  • Please note: contains strong language and adult content.

    From the creators of The Katering Show comes an ordinary workplace comedy set in the most extraordinary place on earth. 

    Maya joins the long-running and much-lauded Bennett Station Adelie Penguin Program as a research assistant in Antarctica. By the time everyone figures out Maya’s completely unqualified for her job it’s too late – the ship is already en route back to Australia and no-one is getting in, or out, of Antarctica until the summer season ends.

    Written by Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney and produced by Guesswork Television in association with OK Great Productions.

Extremely funny story about life in Antarctic

I've enjoyed this story immensely.

The Australian accent made it so more priceless.

I kept bursting out in fits of hysterical laughter while listening - my hubby kept checking on me to ensure I didn't lose the plot completely.

A must listen to story especially during lockdown!!!!

Comedy Excellence

Kate McLennen and Kate McCartney once again afirm their status as comedy royalty in Australia both as writers and performers. Slushy is a fresh, hilarious tale, well written and expertly brought to life by a stellar cast. The two Kates have secondary roles along with other Oz acting royals, while relative newcomers take the more lead characters with as much aplomb as their seasoned cast mates. Having said that it is more of an ensemble piece but you'll get the drift. What an absolute gift Audible. Can't thank you enough. If you have to pay for Slushy, it's worth it! And please share. There's also a message worth noting served with so much humour you won't even realise you've done it.

Happiness in a podcast

Love the Kates and this project didn't disappoint. Easy to follow along, funny and a stellar cast. I saved episodes so it wouldn't be over so quickly!
Please make more episodes. Of this..or only wrong answers.
