We discuss the powerful documentary The Final Quarter which covers the racism that AFL footballer Adam Goodes received at the end of his career. You can watch this documentary here.

Further sources relevant to this documentary and the treatment of Adam Goodes:

  • GO Foundation: Adam Goodes and Mick O’Loughlin started GO to give Indigenous students a better future through education.

We also discuss Waleed Aly’s article ‘Trump’s racist tweets have parallels to the abuse of Adam Goodes’; the talk ‘White Fragility’ by Robin DiAngelo; Miranda Tapsell and Nakkiah Lui on Series 2, Episode 8 of Get Krack!n; and studies showing widespread bias based on race (US, Australia) and gender.

On this episode we take aim at FIFA and the human rights abuses associated with the World Cup. We discuss the $11 billion spent on the tournament by the Brazilian government, at the expense of much needed government services. We also mention that thousands of people have been evicted from their homes and sex workers have been pushed out of the city. We play an interview with a mem­ber of the Comité Po­pu­lar da Copa in Sao Paulo, a co­or­di­na­ti­on of groups and individuals against the FIFA World Cup and its negative effects. This interview is thanks to Anarchist Radio Berlin and we encourage people to listen to the entire interview here (we play a shortened version). We also mention that gay players have been encouraged to come out at the World Cup, as well as discussing nationalism and militarism in ice-hockey, pointing out that Nick is so normcore he doesn’t even have to try, and giving shout outs to the Queer Punx and the Angry Hippie.
