This episode gives some political new year’s resolutions. The “new year’s revolutions” we promote are: 1. Challenge full-time work to allow more time for other things like art and activism. We have an interview with Boudicca Cerese from CSG Free Northern Rivers on the issue of coal seam gas mining and ongoing protests in New South Wales, Australia. 2. Play KillCap – combining gaming and activism – from Adbusters. 3. Go Vegan for reasons such as the complex lives of farm animals and opposing animal slaughter. We also encourage people who are already vegan to do vegan mentoring and change to Cruelty Free Super. 4. Move away from car use. 5. Buy less shit. 6. Question capitalism and think about alternatives – check out the website Audio for a Revolution for heaps of anti-capitalist sources.
We also cover: the article In Defense of New Year’s Resolutions, B’s really nice review of our podcast, supposed “terrorist” Tame Iti paints the front cover of New Zealand Geographic, E-readers and government snooping, Zenhabits.net and Feminist Disney.
