Van Badham, in lockdown Sydney, and Ben Davison, with a crying dachshund, dive into the mishandling of the Sydney lockdown, the spread of Delta, how Morrison's attacks on the public sector have resulted in needing to use the Army for a health crisis and what we can do to remove barriers to vaccination.
The workers at McCain are back at work following their win over the multinational corporation's attempt to lock them out, workers at Coca-Cola in WA are standing strong against attempts to cut their conditions and Van discusses how our greatest PM, John Curtin, was a unionist even while fighting World War II
The "morality of our current leadership" under the Morrison government has been called into question by Grace Tame, Australian of the year, and Van and Ben explore how scandal after scandal has gone unpunished and doing the wrong thing but avoiding responsibility is being rewarded by Morrison.
The good news is about solar cars and new battery technology!
