We’re joined by our friend Lottie to break down the Australian federal election, going from major parties to minors to micro-parties to Independents. More specifically, we discuss Labor failing to challenge the Liberal party’s trickle-down economics, positive changes from the Greens regarding an increased focus on addressing cost of living issues and Indigenous representation, how the Teal Independents stack up on climate change and other issues, differences between the socialist parties, the Animal Justice Party and human social justice issues, plus compulsory voting and spanking.

Nick is joined by Adam Cardilini to discuss the movie Don’t Look Up (Netflix) and compare individual actions for the climate commonly promoted in the environmental movement with scientific research on the most effective actions. We do this by discussing the actions promoted on the website https://www.count-us-in.org/en-gb/project/ and the following scientific article: Wynes, S. and Nicholas, K. A. 2017.
