7:00am Acknowledgement of Country

7:02am News: General existential dread about climate change, have a great day

Speaking of existential dread, India and Pakistan might be having a water war. Awesome.

Le Bon Ton Con: Hospitality workers organise against wage theft

7:15am Jacob and Zane speak with NTEU national president Alison Barnes about the new campaign to combat sexual harassment of staff on campus. Alison says there is chronic underreporting of sexual harassment by staff even though women are aware of the appropriate channels to report to, and this is intrinsically linked to the high rate of casualisation in the sector.

7:28 News: Academy awards give top gong to "the green book" over blackKKlansman, exposing the tokenistic commitment to centering actors and directors of colour and the stories of people of colour. 

Liberate housing from the unfree market: building lots more public housing is the most effective way to tackle the affordability crisis

7:40am: Jacob and Zane speak with Solidarity Magazine editor and Aboriginal rights activist Paddy Gibson about the breathtaking hypocrisy and double standards of conservatives who backed the racist NT intervention to tackle a fabricated child sexual abuse epidemic. These same politicians and commentators - like Tony Abbott, John Howard, Andrew Bolt, and Miranda Devine - are now vigorously defending catholic cardinal George Pell even after he was convicted of acts of paedophilia.

8:24am News: Jordan Peterson's appearance on abc's QandA, including a question from racist witch hunt organiser Milo Yiannopoulos explicitly procured by the show's producers, is the latest sad reflection of the rightward drift of the ABC.
