And she's all about calling out bullshit.

2. No matter how niche you think something might be, they'll cover it.

From Japanese Lolita subcultures to taxidermists and pimps.

3. They're an M-rated news show, so they can say "FUCK" whenever they want.

"So what?" Well, with an M, you're treated like the mature person you are, and there's no pussyfooting around swear words or other things.

4. There are some really surprising guests. Like really super-famous people. Some with whom Marc flirts*.

5. Lee Lin Chin often graces us with her presence too.

Lee Lin will also be featured in a new project with The Feed coming up called The Weekend Shift. We're not worthy.

It's no secret TV in Australia is pretty damn white. Like painfully white. On The Feed, you'll see people of all colours, shapes, sizes, and identities, from all over the country.

8. They don't ask stupid "questions" because it's 2016.

"Is blackface racist?" "Are trans people real?" "Is it OK to be gay?" "Is climate change happening?" "Should same-sex marriage be legal?"

All "questions" they don't ask because it's 2016, and the answer is yes. Seriously.

9. They're an amazing team.

Totally full of people who love and respect each other and their audience and are committed to the issues that matter. But actually they are, even with the banter you see here.
