    480: RBG

    On this week's episode of the Unnatural Selection Podcast we discuss a bunch of stuff:
    Covid cases in Victoria are down! Lots of deeply upsetting non-corona content! The LNP and their disappointing half-measure on climate change. Say ‘energy policy’ and the knives come out in the LNP party meeting. The very depressing story out of an ICE detention centre in Georgia. The US immigration Ice hysterectomy allegations in line with US's long and racist history of eugenics. Guatemala syphilis experiments. Tuskegee Syphilis Study. RBG has passed away at 87, a judicial and feminist giant. The political situation with the presidential election of 2020 and supreme court appointments.

    479: Wet Ass Premier

    On this week's episode of the Unnatural Selection Podcast we discuss a bunch of stuff:
    Wet Arse Pussy. Dan Andrews announces the roadmap out of coronavirus has… some critics. If you want to get out of the lockdown faster, then BEHAVE. Government is hard - bureaucracies aren’t meant to respond in an agile fashion. You gotta love all these morons acting like they could’ve done a better job on the COVID-19 response. Never attribute to malice what you can attribute to incompetence. The Ballarat protest was a bit of a fizzer in the end, thank Christ. The new trend towards smart metres that could have your personal data end up in unexpected places.  The need for legislation that allows us to control our data - one day may be too late.

    478: The Road Out

    478: The Road Out

    On this week's episode of the Unnatural Selection Podcast we discuss a bunch of stuff:
    Dan Andrews announces the roadmap out of coronavirus restrictions. Jorge’s neighbours think he’s a sexist because he yells at his Google Home puck. A more cautious reopening for Victoria, with KPI’s. We’re gonna need some good reporting to make sure all of these things are clear. Freedom Humpers Unite! Melbourne anti-lockdown protesters arrested. Ballarat woman arrested for putting together an anti-lockdown protest on Facebook. The Right-Wing reacts really well. Pick an island - any island, call it Freedom Island and let them all catch the virus.  Speaking of Facebook, they’re firing shots at the ACCC.

    477: Bad Faith

    477: Bad Faith

    On this week's episode of the Unnatural Selection Podcast we discuss a bunch of stuff:
    If you just read the headlines you would be terribly misinformed after this week. Andrews government gets a one-off extension of their six month state of emergency - no thanks to the LNP. You don’t need that many people to pump a conspiracy theory. Do you know a conspiracy theorist who is promoting this ‘petition’? The ring-wing echo chamber and how it is affecting the discourse. Freedom Alliance Australia and the dozen other totally unaccountable organisations that are poisoning the discourse. How do we stop further political polarising. Can we harness the energy for collective action from coronavirus for other endeavours?  The Unnatural Selection podcast is produced by Jorge Tsipos, Adam Direen and Tom Heath.

    476: Google Doesn’t Want to Pay for News

    476: Google Doesn’t Want to Pay for News

    On this week's episode of the Unnatural Selection Podcast we discuss a bunch of stuff:
    The boys reminisce on traditional media from when they last watched it… 15 years ago. Google’s bad faith open letter criticising proposed changes by the ACCC. Google Streisand Effect’s their own open letter.  If we pay news organisations fairly, where does it end?? If the internet giants are going to eat traditional media, don’t they deserve some crumbs? #DanLiedPeopleDied - The hashtag that is probably a disinformation campaign.

    475: Exhausted

    475: Exhausted

    On this week's episode of the Unnatural Selection Podcast we discuss a bunch of stuff:
    We are still in lockdown - it’s exhausting. Zoom is fucking exhausting. Should you dob on your neighbours? A study. Are Tom’s neighbours artists or are they on meth? Why not both? Russia announces a sweet as, totally real vaccine. Belarus has an ‘election’ - dictator wins with 80% of the vote. Why do dictator’s always give themselves insane margins? Russia announces a coronavirus vaccine - whether it works or not! Biden announces Kamala Harris as his VP. Alan Jones can’t stop talking absolute shit about coronavirus and lockdowns on SkyNews. How do you combat misinformation on the internet? Why do people share unattributed information on social media?
