Pete doesn’t mind the Greens playing politics with Australia’s bushfires – it’s just that they’re wrong. Heroes and villains this week includes the Geelong council that won’t declare a climate emergency, the beer company telling everyone Epstein didn’t kill himself, Q&A cancelling itself and Hillary Clinton’s Book of Gutsy Women not including Thatcher.

James gets his sheriff badge out to challenge Member for Wentworth Dave Sharma MP on Brexit and whether Malcom Turnbull’s Breitbart subscription still comes to the electoral office (32:47-47:47) before another round of Hey What Did We Miss? where Pat’s behaviour is simply out of control. There will be repercussions (47:47-57:35).

Race Has No Place in our Constitution, but apparently if you believe that you’re a bigot. James and Pete talk the IPA’s latest video and some of the reaction it’s been getting as well as the incredible story about FITS this week, with Andrew Cooper being investigated without a warrant by the Attorney General’s department for inviting conservatives into the country. Heroes and villains this week include Barack Obama, Dave Chappelle, nuclear alarmists in Japan and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Climate change protesters are in protesting in Melbourne… again. This time they’re spitting on people! The UK Parliament finally agrees on a December election and the ACCC is taking Google to court over your data – but would you rather have corporations have your data or the government?

Right to Know is a good campaign and we’re always happy to see people push for more free speech, but it’s so hypocritical of the ABC, Mark Dreyfus and Kristina Keneally to get on board. James and Pete discuss the whole campaign as well as the latest Brexit disappointment. Heroes and Villains this week include Nick Cave, Hillary Clinton (as a hero!), the UN and Jeremy Corbyn.

At the end of the show we rank most incredible election defeats as Justin Trudeau wins, Cornwall Devon police targeting racist toddlers and those capitalist pigs at the ABC underpaying workers….
James is especially fired up this episode – everyone’s copping a serve!

We talk that and RMIT university giving a Chinese government agency overriding authority over teaching at its Confucius Institute, as well as the upcoming National Driver Licence Facial Recognition Solution which will totally never ever be hacked and the ACT legalising marijuana and we learn it’s difficult to grow in Canberra.

At the end, we talk about confessing sins to plants, the unconscious bias training at QANTAS and Clive Palmer suing FriendlyJordies….
James and Pete have the episode you need while you navigate the traffic of the climate march.
