Hello!  It's a bumper feature-length single episode as we are overdue.

Scout NZ launched, ha ha.  Corbyn won the leadership of the UK Labour Party - does second place win two leaderships of the UK Labour Party?  Ha ha.  The flag debate, process, or whatever you want to call it.  Klaxons sound as Tony Abbott is the one millionth sitting Australian prime minister to be rolled from office.  And the horrifying images of the horrifying reality of our horrifying world - the west's refugee narative is thrown into schreeching discord with the suddenly obvious and unignorable needs of humans undergoing tradgety.

Hello.

Tattoos, getting chucked from bars and human rights!  A wizard makes the apes go bananas!  Burgers!  Washing your car!  It's a mouthbreather comment bonanza episode.

Also the absolute capitulation on the government's duty of care which is the confused, incomplete and failed health and safety legislation.

A note: This was recorded August 30th.  Had it been recorded a few days later we would not have been so flippant about human rights issues at the top of this episode given the stories currently in the headlines.

Hey!

The National Party had its conference this past weekend.  Just what's still in the tank 7 years into government?

Fast food news: most everything in the world has changed and requires reevaluating.  Secrets, lies, noodles, rice.

Special report: do you love science, or do you love living science? Yes you.

And either sport or beer came next, can't remember!

Hi, how's it going?

In less serious news; Len Brown parked an electric car for a minute over a unoperational cycle lane, and will pay the price.

In more serious news, serious issues are coming to light with the management of for-profit privately run Mt Eden prison.  The company in question, Serco, is no stranger to controversy and has a history of mismanagement in an industry where that carries a real human cost.
