Nick and Lottie discuss what journalist Naomi Klein refers to as trickle down identity politics. This form of identity politics, typified by people such as Hillary Clinton, prioritises achieving a more diverse range of people in positions of power, with the argument that if more people from marginalised groups get into positions of power, these benefits will eventually “trickle down” to that group as a whole.

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.

During the election campaign, Trump argued that “Republicans have become the party of the American worker”. Nick is joined by Nic (previously of Bitchy Shitshow and Vegan Warrior Princesses Attack, now doing the new show Pynk Spots) to discuss this claim and break down the US election result and a lack of focus on class and economic inequality from the Democrats.
