Van Badham and Ben Davison, still separated by hard borders and COVID lockdowns, analyse what is happening as Sydney locks down for another four weeks, Victoria starts to cautiously reopen and Morrison decides to let 400,000 Sydneysiders both pay their rent and eat!

Ben breaks down the jump in cost of living and how the failure to see through support for working people may be taking fresh food off many household menus.

Matt Canavan is appearing on the Bannon show while George Christensen's right to support people being organised by far right groups in Germany is defended by Scott Morrison. That's right folks, the evidence is in and the marches on the weekend were orchestrated as part of a global far right movement.

Van and Ben discuss how the Capitol Hill hearings are exposing the dangers of pretending tolerance for the intolerant is anything other than a danger to democracy as both Democrats and Republicans take the stand.

And there is good news about making corporations pay for the environmental cost of plastics and on the elimination of cancer causing PFAS.
