We give a behind-the-scenes look at the media, discussing our experiences of being in the audience for the taping of two Shaun Micallef shows.

We also cover: why we hate quiz/panel shows, commercial constraints in the media, different forms of media and their impact, emotional labour, animal rights and not just welfare, Stic Man of Dead Prez on Which Side podcast, Pauline Hanson’s motion that “it’s okay to be white”, and Aotearoa (New Zealand) Prime Minister Jacinda Arden speaking at the UN and on Stephen Colbert.

Just in case anyone is interested, the Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation episode we were in the audience for was episode 1 of the 2018 series. But do yourself a favour and check out Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell instead!
