Van Badham and Ben Davison analyse Gladys delusional optimism about COVID reopening, Dan's sombre lockdown extension and the increase in far right foreign agitation as orchestrators of COVID spreading events in Australia are arrested overseas.

The Morrison government drops protections for women from sexual harassment from its respect at work legislation as women across Australia campaign and make #wewontwait trend. But is the fact that Michaelia Cash is the industrial relations minister and has a track record of selling out other women mean this issue can't be won? Van tells us why even with Cash in charge the struggle isn't over.

GDP has grown but in every meaningful way we are in a recession. Ben examines how pretending iron ore price and sales volume increases are somehow the same as the real economy is ignoring the millions of unemployed, underemployed and worker's who's real wages are going backward.

And the good news is about magnetic fluids removing micro-plastics from the oceans!

Plus Germanicus cries, wriggles and generally interferes with the recording.
