Show Notes

After Jason returns from a trip to the largest monolith in the world--Uluru, Chris gets a report, leading to a discussion about the 5 largest monoliths on the planet.

Jason asks Chris about jury consulting in America and how the American justice system differs from the UK/Australian system.

The conversation shifts to propaganda within democracies and their inhibitors such as the previous USA "Fairness doctrine" and their contributors, large well funded private media empires. In the process, the "Illusion of Truth" effect is discussed.

Increasing Life with Christy Turlington-Pt.2, Ep.29

Chris, Jason, and Christy pick up where they left off and somehow transition from race inequities in maternal care to noir movies in Nordic countries.  Christy describes the good news of how the current Presidential administration is approaching maternal healthcare and takes on a myth to debunk before describing Every Mother Counts' "special sauce."  Then the three talk about coming out of the pandemic and some of the good things that come with them, including Christy going to a baseball game to see Chris's favorite team, the San Francisco Giants. Chris and Jason catch up after the interview, befuddled by the realization that Maternal health was such a problem in the first place. Then the two rant about the problems with guns in America and gambling in Australia. Chris shares some Good News and the two discuss the next episode with Doug Keene.   MealPass inquiries, please contact Jason Graham-Nye at [email protected] ...

Retro 1980s with Calico Kids Author Todd Downing-Ep.15

Jason is blown away by the period-specific intro theme, then he and Chris revisit the 1980s, including music, dyed hair, rugby shirts, and very short shorts. Jason describes how Possums in Australia are more likable and cuter than their American counterparts. Chris takes Jason through a gauntlet of the 1980s (music, sports, nuclear proliferation, movies) with a quiz. The two then interview Author Todd Downing about his early 1980s period piece, Calico Kids. Todd shares his typical writing and audiobook development processes and his inspiration to create a Spotify playlist of deep tracks from the early 1980s that goes with the book.
