Episode 20: The Right Wing Book Club

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 05/05/2015 - 15:39
Adam Brereton joins James and Bernie to discuss his series called the Right Wing Book Club, in which he reads the books by people such as Cory Bernadi so we don't have to.
 
A bit longer than normal and containing a few swears, it's a good wide ranging discussion about the state of the Australian far right conservative movement.

After week off for Bernie to go watch the Vrooms at the Bathurst 12 Hour, we'll be back to find out whether Australia has found peak derp yet (ha, no such animal).

Also, we break with tradition by including our first international WTF, and by including a nice story :)

The only acronym to describe the events of the past week is WTF.
 
Asylum seekers attacked on Manus Island, Neknominate, Tony Burke tries Buzzfeed, Scott Morrison is a complete Scott Morrison and the ABC tracks down Abdul the Kebab Maker.
 
Note: Sorry about the audio, not sure what happened there.

Tonights episode was the very model of organisation and preparation.
 
Yeah sorry no.
 
Anyway, this week James and Bernie talk cheese eating surrender monkeys, how the hell does Alan Joyce still have a job and Atheist Churches.
 
Note: it appears we had a bit of an internet issue which caused James's audio to go all wrong, sorry.

Things we talk about:

  • Knights and Dames
  • Clive "Mahatma" Palmer
  • Bored Cricket Players
  • Why its not a good idea to pretend to rob someone
  • Buffalo in Newtown

Also here's the story I mentioned in the video that features the awesome photo of the WA Senate candidate who lives in the Blue Mountains.

We have defeated the gremlins and finally managed to record episode 22, and what an episode it is.

We are joined by Doctor Alice Goreman to discuss a paper she wrote about the problem of preserving our orbital heritage, why we should be thinking about it, and how we might go about the task of preserving our history even as it orbits several thousand miles above our heads.

We also talk about the following stories and papers:

A mixed bag of stories this episode. We cover some ground, starting with bird life in and around Chernobyl, insect sex, new advances in biological printing and finally ending up somewhere in orbit.

28th Anniversay of Chernobyl disaster shows some bird species adapting quite well to the higher levels of radiation - http://news.sciencemag.org/biology/2014/04/scienceshot-some-birds-thrive-chernobyls-radioactive-glow
