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 extremely gross!)
Coronas: NSW has seen several court cases about vaccine mandates. Thus far they have all failed.
Positivity Corner: NSW teachers and public transport workers have both gone on strike!
Fashy Aus: The NTEU carefully removed stuff anti-transphobia in a resolution put forward by the Queer wing of the union.

First Nations: Adani has destroyed a sacred stone-knapping site at its Carmichael Coal Mine. Also the Woppaburra people have had their Native Title claims for the Keppel islands approved.
SPOTW: I have to prove my booomerposting credentials, so we're giving this to political cartoonist Kudelka for his rusted-on bingo teatowel.
And you'll just have to listen to the end for our Pupdate!
