We look beyond individual ethics to explore the role of various positions in society and how these different positions shape the worldview of those who hold them. We mainly focus on the role of landlords, or as they are now known in Victoria, “rental providers”. We also cover the roles of the police, military and the employing class.

We finish the show by discussing our recent trip to Queensland and Trump supporters, cancel culture, Monopoly and the catchphrase for the pandemic.
