As Gareth is getting married very shortly, we unfortunately did not have the time to record episode 17. We want to always bring you quality over quantity, so we decided it was best not to rush something through. We will be going dark for October whilst Gareth is on his honeymoon before returning in November. Take care everyone!

SERIES 2 - Episode 16: Can We Talk About Climate Change? + Around the World (05.09.2017)

We take a different approach this episode. Gareth is getting married very soon and the final touches are demanding his time - so we took episode 16 and 'Around the World' and turned them into one big sweeping episode. We focus on the natural disasters unfolding in Houston and Sth East Asia. We travel around the world, talk sports (what?), German bombs, the Crying Nazi, the power to pardon as well as new developments in the Trump/Russian controversy. And of course, more Twin Peaks.

Tony Abbott was in the news again with A five-point plan to save the Coalition. It did not go over well. We head to space for Articles of Interest as well as the Great Barrier Reef. Gareth went to see Julian Assange live (via video link) at the Melbourne Town Hall prompting a conversation about Wikileaks, Russia and Trump. The Fair Work Commission handed down it's ruling on Sunday penalty rates, so Olly and Gareth take a sledgehammer to the rationale behind such a decision. Also, Dick...
