Hi, I’m Cory O’Connor from Geelong, Australia. My podcast, CORY TALKS features news on what’s happening in the world around us. My opinions feature, but first and foremost is to present factual information for my listeners because facts in journalism seems to be endangered at the moment.

I’m not a journalist, but I know enough to see though most of the stuff that is put forth as news in the 21st century.

Apart from being a podcaster, I love listening to podcasts, sci-fi, social issues, media, TV and movies.

    Doctor Who blew up the internet for a little while, which made a great change from it being Kim Kardashian! The brand new series starring Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor returns at the end of October. I can’t wait!

    While out walking I often see cats, but George The Ginger Cat is one of my favourites. My latest interaction with him melted my heart.

    Microsoft released Windows 11 this past week. I jumped on that train early and I am more than happy with the results of this.

    Apple’s iOS15 recently came out too, so I’ve been using a lot of data on downloading operating systems :-)

    On this new edition of CORY TALKS…

    Something totally unexpected happened to me today. Someone I don’t even know, came up to me in the street and gave me a really, really nice compliment. Not enough of that in the world. We all need some niceties right now I think.

    But when I got home from my walks, I discovered that Victoria had recorded the highest ever one day COVID-19 positive numbers, which was a downer to say the least.

    One this Check-In special, I talk about that and we hear from Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews at his media briefing today (Thursday 30 September 2021).

    0507 - Check-In (Shaken Edition)

    On this new edition of CORY TALKS…

    It’s a check-in from me… shaken edition. All shook up for more than one reason.

    There was a 6.0 earthquake east of Melbourne today (Wednesday 22nd September). I didn’t feel it, but many did across Victoria, as well as three other states and the nation’s capital.

    The primary thing I’m shaken by is the level of rioting that’s been going on lately in Melbourne at protests over the lockdown, mask wearing, social distancing and the construction industry… ooh and who can forget… the vaccine.

    0506 - I'm vaxxed!

    On this new edition of CORY TALKS…

    It has been a long time coming. A very long time. But now I am fully vaccinated with the coronavirus vaccine.

    I talk about my path to get to this point. The COVID-19 tests I had when I wasn’t well that both come back negative and the wait to get the vaccine I wanted – the one I felt far less risk about.

    Thanks to my cousin Faith, who’s taken me to the not so close vaccination centre. I truly appreciate it.

    On this new edition of CORY TALKS…

    Here’s my ten-minute rant on anti-vaxxers and the Federal Government of Australia.

    Fear not (about the vaccine and what I say in this special), I do not believe there’s some sort of conspiracy to track your movements – your Facebook already does that unless you’ve turned those features off.

    These are my views. They may also be yours. But they may also NOT be yours. I just ask that you listen.

    My views are not for political or financial reasons. I freely put them out there because I am concerned that a number of people in Australia are failing to keep themselves and their loved ones safe by doing some good old research that doesn’t include social media. But facts and I guess a good place to start is with your doctor.

    My second COVID-19 jab is tomorrow (Tuesday 14th September). I’ll present another special episode later this week… once I shake off the government operative following me - only joking!!!

    On this new edition of CORYTALKS…

    Today on this podcast release date, it’s been 20 years since the terrorist attacks on the United States which resulted in the deaths of many thousands of people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

    I was reading news back in 2001 and in this special edition of the podcast, I look back at the time and share some audio of me reporting this story to listeners.
