    It’s here! The long-awaited podcom (podcast sitcom) set in a dysfunctional apartment block’s strata committee is live and ready for your ears. The premise of this audio comedy, Hyperbole Towers, is as simple as it’s believable. The strata scheme has, thanks to a stuff-up by the secretary, accidentally changed its by-laws so that they MUST hold their …

    Look just wanted to say, your podcom is hilarious. i.e. Hyperbole Towers (or BS Towers for potty mouths).
    I an owner of two OC properties – nightmarish admin/OC experiences. I may have some perfect fodder -albeit – I love your website it is not only informative but also super-duper because you have genuine experiences – bit like the Dorothy Dix of the strata living world – but really well answered/responded to (no slight on Dorothy).
    The format is really good unlike ‘others’ and which when you read ’em you kind of feel that behind ’em’ is a stinky (non-trustable) OC type manager corporate person.-
    I guess it was is called the ‘voice’ or ‘tone’ (sense of the absurd and humour) – Flatchat is like a friend you sincerely want to catch up with and the other is more like oh yeah, guess I’ll catch up because I might get something worthwhile form it – but not in a kind of positive way – more doom and gloom attached.
    I like Todd McKenney’s presence – I worked with him on 42nd Street about a gazillion years ago – (I was a mere dresser and just fresh out of WAAPA). Todd was beautiful and stupendously talented and generous spirited with his help with the greyhound man.
    I haven’t quite finished listening to podcom – saving it for later and if I had to identify with any of your Hyperbole Towers podcom’s , character’s it would be Amber – straight to the point and NO (BS) hyperbole!!
    Also, I remember No. 96 and then it was followed and can then still remember the building being blown up, calling an end to the series and then used to watch the racier version ‘the box’ – ha, but hard push to get parents to let me watch – but sometimes – oh, my gosh – love ya work Jimmy!
    On one of property’s going through the nightmare of having ALL the common property windows replaced and the other. Three years of subdivision – i.e. from stratum title to strata title- very expensive legal battle – but I had excellent solicitor and barrister – ended up ok – but it cost the Service Company and me – and to end up virtually in the same place i.e. with levy arrangements at the beginning of the fight.
    Oh my lord, in all the time I have owned the strata property, I think I have seen it all,  from experiencing shocking floods into property, then dealing with the insurers for over a year, various lawyers, some good some bad, now having a good old fight with OC Manager and her wanting to access my private property terrace to do Common property works – anyways. Fortunately I have the best Managing Agent in Melbourne.
    Also, I cannot stop the nosey, over controlling – OC Manager from contacting my tenant direct.
    Anyways… thanks for the laughs in horrible times of covid.
