Episode 102 – 28 June 2017

01:20 The census result

06:40 The Fist says the result is a disgrace.

10:15 The Fist explains why we must get a different religion question in the next Census and he also takes aim at cultural Christians.

12:32 What will it take for people to get interested in religious interference.

13:56 Don’t want to donate an organ? OK, you go to the bottom of the list if you need ever one. We should do the same with the census question response and future needs for progressive laws.

16:10 We look at the theories put forward in a book called “Thinking Fast and Slow” and compare our statistics to other countries.

44:44 In Montréal the Catholic Church has issued a directive that priests should not be left alone with children.

46:52 We look at a play where the audience decides whether to kill off one of the characters.

49:10 Australians do not understand the dangers of political donations.

52:31 The submarine contract is a fiasco and now it is revealed that it will not provide jobs as promised.

55:02 The F35 fighter plane will probably be as big of a disaster as the submarine contract.

57:38 If you thought a sex change operation was a loophole in the same sex marriage debate then you are wrong.

59:57 The problems in the Philippines have been going on for 400 years and we should stay out of them.

The 2016 Census

Political donations

Gonski 2.0 – what happened.

Tanya Plibersek says Labor will restore Catholic school funding irrespective of budget

Montreal Catholic Church Forbids Priests From Being Alone With Children

Audience votes to kill ‘mum’ in play

Future submarine jobs in Adelaide have been thrown into doubt in the wake of an apparent U-turn by French company DCNS on how much work will be carried out locally, Senator Nick Xenophon says.

What went wrong with the F-35, Lockheed Martin’s Joint Strike Fighter?

The intractable scene in Mindanao indeed is concerning but it is born out a much longer and different history than elsewhere – one where the US (and others) have long been involved. Australia needs to be very careful not to become militarily entangled.

Testimonials

Only just found this podcast. LOVE IT

Really great to see some honest conversation, that doesn’t seem concerned with making the truth more palatable for the fair of heart. I think we really need a lot more of this.

Great listen

Fantastic podcast and gets better every episode. BUT if you can’t handle the truth about the dismal state of Australian politics give this one a miss.

The Happy Dog

Look forward to this podcast every week

This is an entertaining and intelligent discussion of politics, religion, education and other important issues in Australia. If you’re not interested in politics or if you’re confused by it then you need to listen to these guys. They remove the mystery and put forward an analysis of the issues that will entertain and inform you.

Ep 81, one of the best and most enjoyable

Wel done Trevor and Hugh, one of the best Eps to date. Professional delivery by both.

Episode 68 right on the mark

This episode was just the right length, but more importantly, was a little more measured in addressing the topics. I admire the Iron Fist in the way he can craft rational statements about appalling behaviour in the topics discussed, and I found the 12th Man to be a good balance to the Iron Fist. I wish the Velvet Glove wouldn’t giggle at important topics or when religious thinking is described – we already find them ridiculous, but laughing every time is a bit much after hours of listening to episodes. This is a fun but semi-serious podcast that everyone should listen to, and I thank them for making the time to produce it.

Keep it going…

A refreshing podcast. Rational discussion on topics many won’t tackle honestly. I don’t agree with everything you say but I love the way your subject matter is explored and sometimes debated. Great work guys.

Don’t listen to these baby eating heathens, God will kill an angel for every episode that you listen to.

Presenting the Inconvenient Truth

These guys are at the forefront of challenging religious privilege. If you want to be up-to-date on all the wacky goings-on by the religion pushers in this world and their attempts successful or otherwise to influence the political and social spheres of our lives then this is your podcast. We need more of this advocacy for a secular world view. Be like me or Bill and don’t miss an episode.

Australian Centred Debate

This podcast is great for those looking for debates about secularism, religious power structures and Western liberal democratic ideals, all with a focus on the Great Southern Land. The two main protagonists bounce ideas off each other and occasionally guests are brought in to give different perspectives (I love to hate Right Wing Tony!). These are not Left Wing Nutters, I know as I tend to that description too often myself and disagree with them at times. Rationality and free thought rule! The boys don’t mind if you throw in your two cents, in fact, I think they love to hear from the public. Very worth a listen.
