Wokeleys: Not a boycott but a universal pull out.
🎧 PODCAST GUESTS: Dan Ilic, Lewis Hobba, Megan Herbert & Matt Bray
This week we’re explaining the Walkleys walkout by some of the most celebrated cartoonists in the country. Australia’s most prestigious Journalism Awards are sponsored by a fossil fuel company, and Megan Herbert is on the podcast to talk us through her decision.
Also Matt Bray joins us to talk about his latest creation. Gas Tycoon™ The Board Game. Which I should stress is NOTHING like Monopoly®. Matt has launched a Kickstarter Campaign to get it off the ground. Go chip in to to support it, or you could win one of five copies by simply becoming an A Rational Fear Patreon supporter.
We also talk burning man, Qantas, and bad jokes on Netflix specials.
Over 500,000 people have watched the A Rational Fear parody of ACA’s interview on the voice with Albo this week. Including likes from Taika Waititi, and reposts by Ben Simmons’ mum, and the Prime Minister himself.
IMPORTANT PODCAST AWARD REQUEST:
Please vote for us in the Listener’s Choice award at the Australian Podcast Award website— it’s a bit like the Logies of podcasting. I doubt we’ll win it, we only have 10,000 listeners because we haven’t murdered anyone and then tried to solve the crime.
If you sign up to the Patreon you can listen to the podcast ad-free, sponsor free and this week you’ll be able to get some EXTRA FEAR with us talking about a joke by an American comedian who claims that Australia doesn’t produce ANYTHING.
Patreon supporters also get a link to the Discord server where we make jokes about the news and discuss the podcast.
UPCOMING LIVE SHOWS:
We’ve got two live shows coming up — the Women in Media Conference Sept 9th and the Torres Strait Sept 18th. Yes performing on a Monday on Thursday Island.
