We enter the Sexism Zone, then chat about coal-lover Joel Fitzgibbon leaving the Labor front-bench. For dessert we discuss successul petitions and a (hopefully!) big new push for social housing in Victoria.
We dig into the details of the recently released Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements. Then we chat about the LNP freaking out about ANZ virtue signalling, and the company that was paid millions to not clean trains.
We're joined by journalist Jim Malo to talk race, renting and climate change, and how Australia's media covers all three. But before that, we talk about the desecration of sacred sites, and Jobkeeper rorts.
We take a break from doom and gloom to highlight some recent wins. Then we chat with broadcaster and conspiracy researcher Cam Smith about the sovereign citizens and far-right cranks at a Bunnings near you.
We chat about Melbourne's return to city-wide lockdown and the ongoing police presence at the nine inner-city public housing blocks. Then we get personal, talking about our own paths to radical politics.
We discuss National Sorry day, Aboriginal people dying in custody and Rio Tinto destroying an ancient and irreplaceable historic site. Then we dance on Robodebt's grave and chat about the long-lasting effects of Australia's bushfires.
We acknowledge the sacrifice of our fallen heroes, and discuss former PM Malcom Turnbull's testy responses to criticism of his new book. Then chat about the knock-on effects of tumbling oil prices and how to save the Great Barrier Reef.
The NSW and Victorian state governments have announced massive rent relief packages. Or are they just handouts to landlords? Then we chat COVID tracing apps, and what Angus Taylor has been up to recently.
Private schools and hospitals are getting massive bailouts and there's day-long lines at Centerlink. We talk coronavirus shutdowns, the government's confusing messaging and why cruise ships are spreading the plague.
It's the biggest news week of our lifetime, and we podcast through it. We discuss the government's (mis)handling of the corona situation, then get hopeful about what might come out the other side of this mess.
Shell is posting cringe on International Women's Day, Missy Higgins' dad has Coronavirus, and the Australian government continues their efforts to make corruption a national sport. We try to make sense of the chaos in this blockbuster episode.
The Liberal party's float at the Sydney Mardi Gras was targeted by protestors who were ejected from the parade. We discuss the Liberal party's history of policies that hurt the LGBTQI community, and the Labor party's lack of spine on both gay marriage and climate change.
