In The Shed with Ando, Clarky & Gilly is encouraging debate and independent thinking about the current political & social climate, with the aim of equality for all becoming the driving force that directs our nation forward into the future.
In The Shed Ep.038 - Jan. 2021. Steph storms the shed. No amount of mansplaining will halt this attempted coup d'état......
Rains of biblical proportions hammer the shed to kick off 2021 and whilst the modern mainstream media doesn't need the heavens to whitewash history, no amount of rain will wash away Clarkys ability to tangent from submarines to water bombers and seamlessly rewrite Australia's foreign policy...you're welcome!
Morrison's Industrial Relations Omnibus Bill is met with ire from workers and the #StopTheBus campaign rolls out nationally
Steph is welcomed to the shed once again, smashing misconceptions around trauma and addiction and leaving in her wake the rubble of mistruth and destroyed right-wing propaganda in a space where health has been politicised for more than a while.
The power of the collective is again a central theme starting with the example of Foundation House in NSW and travelling all the way to the need for a general strike in this country but not while 95% of the population choose to self-fracture along the lines of identity politics or misguided concepts of class; we are first and foremost working class and attempts to soar will always be impeded until the 95% get behind that reality.
Organising around that level of solidarity is essential but you can guarantee a few feathers from the wealthy 5% will be ruffled along the way. A new documentary on the life of Fred Hampton due for release (Judas and the Black Messiah) is a critical testament to that.
In The Shed Ep.037 - Dec.23 2020. As 2020 ends the grubs circle Porters wine cabinet...
Solidarity amongst Australian organised labour is put to the test as the aspirations of a few seeking to gain a drink from Porter's wine cabinet threaten the future of the country's most effective unions. Multiple musings, brain farts, tangents from the shed; a space where consistent with a general 2020 theme, the truth at times can be considered irrelevant! See ya in 2021

In The Shed Ep.036 - Oct. 31 2020. So many dangerous Questions
What to do with food production? How many bins of the fruit must you pick before you make bank on the farm? Should we nationalise food production, park the profit margins and pay a decent wage? What level of wealth do Gina and her ilk in the BRW Rich List need to accumulate before Australia stop subsidising their enterprises? The dangerous questions come thick and fast as well as a bit of commentary on current events, including Tesla's proxy Government in Bolivia are defeated in recent elections, lock-down protests, Clive Palmer is back on the Death Tax, Abby Martin's assessment of the US Supreme Court and how the left and right use it, Danny and Lauchie jump on the ph and call in. links for the many recommendations Netflix 13th, Chomsky on the Juice Media Podcast, Netflix Vice, Redacted tonight interviews Peter Joseph, New Podcast The Week on Wednesday
In The Shed Ep.035 - Sept. 18 2020. Started with three words, becomes a 50 Hundred tangents...
Episode 035 sees Clarky roll out a new mic and he morphs in old golden tonsils Chris "Laws". Some out there on the interwebs believe Australian Farmer's continue their struggle to find workers they can exploit in this era of restricted travel. Peddled out by mainstream media as the "real victims" of Covid_19, along with business in general and the many markets impacted as being, the only true victims. Commentators spewing out "we must open up for the sake of business" and other such statements of trickle-down benevolence, this industrial-scale b******t has been ratcheted up to 11. As has been said repeat a lie often enough and it will be believed is a real thing right now and it appeals to general amnesia surrounding the fact that we are getting robbed again as public money is spent into existence

In The Shed Ep.034 - August 15 2020. Collaborating outside One Party...
Tasmania's leaky border finally gets media attention it deserves through the lens of political corruption. Clarky describes his vision of Utopia and a million tangents ensue. Gilly once again finds his inner boomer much to the amusement of the shed. International solidarity is required for the human tragedy playing out in Beruit, leading by example once again are the legends at APHEDA. The working class makes up 95% of the population and is the single motivation for the powerful to keep looking for wedges to drive in. Mick continues his eternal search for a new segment; "Fuck some cunts are dumb" enters reality when a chat about the good old days finds a bottomless tangent.
