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, and Coles is thefting even more wages than they were wage-thefting before!
SPOTW: Adam Bandt's corporate blue tick facebook profile joined our meme group, and so far, has disappointed us
Kook Watch: Victorian pandemic powers bill will pass, anti-vaxers are violently assaulting people and continuing to spread the coronavirus at their rallies
Positivity Corner: Zac went to the CARF rally and an anti-wage-theft rally this week, shoutouts to everyone who's turning up to these events!
First Nations: CW for talking about Indigenous people who have died from 31:00 - 35:30. There has been another Indigenous woman who has died in custody in Melbourne, and although not much information is available it's another travesty of justice. Also this week, Yolngu man and world-famous actor David Dalaithngu has died.
