Nick and Lottie play speeches from the Melbourne Invasion Day rally, discuss factions within social movements and the radical flank effect, and finish by clearing up some misinformation spreading around social media regarding why January 26 is celebrated in Australia.

The speakers you hear from include: Gary Foley (a Gumbainggir man), Robbie Thorpe (from the Krautungalung people of the Gunnai Nation), Meriki Onus (Gunai and Gunditjmara woman) and Lydia Thorpe (DjabWurrung Gunnai Gunditjmara woman).

Nick is joined by Nic from Pynk Spots for a DEEP dive into Bo Burnham’s musical comedy and what “content creators” (which is just about everyone in the age of social media!) can learn from his work. We mainly discuss his latest Netflix special ‘Inside’ but also touch on his previous specials ‘Make Happy’ and ‘What?’ – both of these are also available on Netflix.
