It's another super long episode because our story on the Melbourne protests accidentally went nearly an hour long. Whoopsie doodle! Hopefully you find our discussion at least somewhat interesting or insightful.
We also have a couple of trigger warnings at the end of the show. Time codes are below and we give warnings when you're listening before the stories start.
This week we're serving you...
Aperitifs: Christian Porter is out of the ministry. Also, there was an earthquake!
Fashy Australia/ACAB/SPOTW: Protests in Melbourne around the construction industry. We chew over the events of the week and try to come to some actual positions.
Plus we have a Potluck from Mitch, one of the hosts of Not Good Enough Pod! You can listen to them at https://notgoodpod.com/
Positivity Corner: Jordon Steele-John has been given the Greens' Federal Health Spokes role, and announced a new mental health care policy that would see unlimited mental health care funded by Medicare. We also have some amazing art from Imo Timo and you can see more of their work at https://www.instagram.com/imotimos_art/ or buy prints at https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/ImoTimosArt
First Nations: CW for names of people who have died from 60:00 - 1:05:00 and discussion of police violence against First Nations people from 1:05:00 - 1:10:00. We have three stories here. 1: a cool art exhibit called Viewpoints (also check out this article: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2021/sep/07/first-nations-photography-reframed-this-is-who-we-really-are). 2: Fella's Bill passes the SA upper house unanimously, meaning that the state will ban and criminalise the use of Spit Hoods. 3: update on the inquest of an Aboriginal man who was killed while being chased by police.
