Teachers are striking. I bet it’s because they’re greedy little masked bandits hellbent on holding the nation’s children to ransom. What say you? We corral a real live teacher into the studio to hear their terrible demands. WARNING: What you’re about to hear my shock you.
Race, religion, sexuality, Australia and Maurice Williamson – a mix as volatile as a meth lab in an earthquake, of which we’re fairly certain some poor fuckers are desperately cleaning up right now.
The Christchurch Earthquake is serious business and has had a huge impact on the lives of the residents, BUT: as with any news event there are peripheral political, financial and media fuck-ups that make up the bread and butter of this podcast.
