Manage episode 301540450 series 2848570
We have another bumper episode for you all to chow down on! I think the first half of the show is pretty fun, but with our usual emotional whiplash, the back half of the show has a few content warnings. There are discussions of police violence against Indigenous people, discussing people who have died, and discussion of DV and sexual assault. We've mentioned it in the show before each story and there are timecodes below for you to skip.
This week we're serving up...
Entree/Blurst Take: Barnaby won't be bullied about climate policy / it was our fourth hottest winter ever
SPOTW: Cringe of the Week goes to Dr Queen Victoria with a lay-up assist to Nys! But the worst post of the week goes to Family Voice for their Fathers' Day photo competition.
Positivity Corner: We have actual positivity corners! Bushfire Survivors for Climate Action sue the NSW EPA; Queensland moves to decriminalise sex work; Srsly Wrong who are our idols are definitely aware of who we are; and Noon's orange tree has finally fruited after several years.
First Nations (CW 35:30): Zac watched Incarceration Nation and reports back about the film and some of the debate that it has raised.
Coronas: There's a UK deal for vaccines and people aren't going to their appointments. But the real news is that the Government totally abandoned their responsibility and has allowed coronavirus to get into prisons. The way they're dealing with it is also bad. Also an Indigenous man has died of Coronavirus for the first time since the pandemic began.
Fashy Australia / Mains (CW 1:03:30): It's a misogyny round-up. John Setka gets worse by the day, as does the Federal Government, who are refusing to implement recommendations for women's safety.
And you'll have to listen to the end for our Pupdate!
