It's our first episode of 2022 and we're bringing our new year slimy matrix goo pod energy! This week we're serving up... Coronas: There are no RATs! Partly because half the truck drivers in the country are sick with the covid! Partly because there are no RATs! Also there's a labour crisis! Is there a great resignation going on in Australia? Whomst…
 
We're back! With another episode of memes, memes, and more memes, with a robust side of extremely cool and popular guest host Holly! We go from July to the end of the year with our posts of the week, meandering a little as we all fall asleep (we ended up recording this roughly 3 hours later than intended). From NAIDOC to loving submarines (it risky…
 
Boy howdy it's been a long year. A long, painful, long, difficult, isolated, long year. But we've been posting through it. The entire nation has really lifted our meme game during the pandemic and in this week and next week's episodes we're going through the posts, content, tweets, and memes that defined our year. We're also joined by robust and po…
 
An incredible year in Australian politics, but the biggest feature was all the issues left behind and the issues that were not managed very well at all: climate change, corruption, the way women are treated within the political system. And the biggest issue of all for 2021: the coronavirus pandemic. It can be argued that at least by the end of the …
 
Zac's away again this weekend so we recorded this earlier this week. Hopefully there haven't been any massive developments in these stories since then... Aperitifs: Gladys may or may not run for Parliament; we're boycotting the Olympics but kinda not really; and Barclay McGain dressed up as Kyle Rittenhouse for Halloween (slightly late but extremel…
 
Independent candidates are set to play a big role in the next federal election. And why are they running for election? Because they’ve had enough of the politics-as-usual approach and feel Australia is being held back by poor leadership, especially on climate change, a lack of action against corruption, and the treatment of women in politics. David…
 
Katharine Murphy and Guardian Australia’s team of political reporters answer your most burning political questions. What lies ahead for Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese in an election year? What would a federal integrity commission look like? Will Australia go to war against China? The team also share some of their highs and lows from the year i…
 
Political parties love to end the year with momentum and provide a springboard into the new year – especially if there’s an election coming up. Labor is starting to release some policy to address long-term political issues: climate change, skills shortages, university placements – and to combat this, the Prime Minister decided that it was best to r…
 
It's another longthful episode this week because there's just too much dang news! There are a couple of CWs, time-codes are below. This week we're serving up... Aperitifs: Craig Kelly on new Social Media Inquiry, Greg Hunt is retiring to spend more time watching porn on twitter, VicForests will save Christmas by destroying Melbourne's water supply,…
 
The parliamentary year commenced with the revelations of a rape at Parliament House; it ended with a report into sexual harassment at parliamentary workplaces… and a federal minister stepping aside after he was accused of physically abusing a staffer he was having an affair with. When will parliamentarians learn their lessons? And with so many gove…
 
It’s the final week of Parliament for 2021 and it’s much the same as all the other ones in recent weeks: chaos and dysfunction, and a peculiar interest in all of the issues that don’t really matter too much. This week’s interest? The anti-troll social media legislation which no one has ever asked for, would be ineffective (in the unlikely event tha…
 
We're finally back with a normal episode and it's an extra long one because there's just too much dang news! This week on the menu is: Aperitifs: Trans Day of Remembrance, NSW State Elections, VicForests doing mad crimes, and Dutton wins a defo suit (boooo). Read more about forestry crimes here: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-11-24/hi-res-elevati…
 
This term of Parliament is descending into chaos, and it’s almost as though the anarchist society has taken over the Senate and House of Representatives. But it’s not the anarchist society: it’s the Liberal–National Coalition which is now resembling a thoroughly disorganised rabble. The Voter ID and Religious Discrimination Bills are in tatters – l…
 
It’s increasingly obvious the Prime Minister is using the final stages of this Parliament to roadtest a number of different election slogans. Last week it was ‘Australians taking back their lives’, followed by ‘Australians have had a gutful of being told what to do’, interspersed with ‘cost of living’ and ‘can-do capitalism’. This week it was ‘movi…
 
It's another pre-recorded episode this week - lucky there's no news, right?? Snackpod are the proud owners of one of maybe only eight or ten copies of Gina Rinehart's alleged jokebook, Jokes and Joys (Dedicated to Aussie Mother). So for this week's episode, we read some of the least vile jokes and memes straight from Australia's richest person. Thi…
 
Once again, the Liberal–National Coalition is attacking the ABC, and doing the bidding of News Corporation in its quest to remove the ABC from government ownership and sell if off to the highest bidder. And several state divisions of the Liberal Party – and all the Young Liberal branches – have already passed resolutions to privatise the ABC and it…
 
Guardian Australia’s foreign affairs and defence correspondent Daniel Hurst speaks to China’s acting ambassador to Australia, Wang Xining, on the future of the relationship between the two countries China’s infamous list of grievances with Australia ‘should be longer than 14 points’, top diplomat says…
 
Australia is seeking national leadership at this point of time to ward off the threat of extremist behaviour in Melbourne but instead of trying to dampen the enthusiasm of QAnon, neo-Nazis, fascists, sovereign citizens and assorted fringe dwellers, Scott Morrison is hoping to hang onto their votes at the next federal election and he decided the bes…
 
Noon is away this week dealing with a smol MH crisis, but never fear because robust fan favourite and peoples' champion Holly is back to celebrate No Knowledge November. Excitingly, we also have a new segment and sting for you! Also just a heads up that next week will be another unusual episode but it will have both Zac and Noon on it (unless somet…
 
Paul Keating was a hit at the National Press Club address during the week, but members of the federal government were not so happy about this. Because he spoke positively and realistically about China and Australia’s place in the world: which rubs against the grain of the government’s narrative of depicting China as a massive threat to Australia. A…
 
There won’t be a federal election in the short term, but that doesn’t mean campaigning can’t start early. It feels like the election campaign has already commenced, with Scott Morrison wanting to ‘move on’ from all the errors from the past and present his best face to the public. But this depends on the fine art of the political lie, of which Morri…
 
Zac's off this week, so Noon caught up with Mev, one of the organisers at Slutwalk Naarm/Melbourne. She chats with us about the history of the movement, consent, victim blaming, the word slut and the pros and cons of using it as part of a radical organisation, and more! We hope you love the show this week. Slutwalk Naarm/Melbourne is happening next…
 
The Prime Minister was reluctant to go to the COP26 climate change conference and it’s obvious to see why. To say it was a diplomatic disaster is an understatement and the more Scott Morrison makes politics all about him, the more he is exposed as an ineffective prime minister who appears to be severely out of his depth. It’s one thing to create a …
 
What is Scott Morrison? A brand name? A theme, a hologram, a Prime Minister, an advertisement, a football coach?… or just a person? It’s hard to know, because Morrison reveals so little of who he actually is. But does it really matter? We reveal all in a conversation with Sean Kelly, discussing his brand new book, “The Game: A Portrait of Scott Mor…
 
At the G20 in Rome in the wake of the controversial Aukus deal in which Australia opted to buy nuclear submarines from the US and UK and ditch the $90bn existing deal with France – Katharine Murphy speaks with the political editor of the Australian Financial Review, Phil Coorey and the chief political correspondent of the SMH and the Age, David Cro…
 
It's a newsy week and we've got a long newsy show for you all. This week we're serving up... Aperitifs: Crown Casino lose their license but also don't, featuring Noon singing. The Federal Government is trying to bring in voter ID laws. And Michael Leunig has been fired from the age. We also have a SPOTW for Meag's Leunig knock-off. Positivity Corne…
