Giordano Nanni is a historian and satirist and the driving force behind The Juice Media.

He was the co-creator of the hugely successful Rap News series which has tallied millions of views and featured cameos from the likes of Noam Chomsky and Julian Assange and since 2016 he's been collaborating in his lounge room with his partner Lucy and actors Ellen and Zoe to make the very-funny-and-extremely-on-point Honest Government Ads series. The series has tackled everything from net neutrality to East Timor to the arms trade to Australia Day and they make me laugh and they make me angry. 

Here Giordano and I have a bloody lovely chat about the story of The Juice, how history forms his politics, working with Assange and Chomsky and how doing satire could potentially see him sent to prison for five years. Funny stuff!

Aimee Terese is a law student, podcaster and socialist.

Until this week she was the co-host of the Dead Pundits Society podcast in which she picked apart US politics from a Leftist perspective, filling my brain with a bunch of smart insights and funny jokes. She doesn't suffer contradictions or bullshit and I loved getting to pick her brain during this conversation about the origins of her politics, electoralism, "lesser evil voting", Jordan B. Peterson and Bernie Sanders.

I'M BACK, BABY.

It's a new year and I'm unemployed so what better time to restart this podcast. This is just a cheeky little tease ep, but a brand new episode with a fascinating guest will be out this Wednesday. Hurrah. 

I have set up a Patreon for the show, not to become a billionaire but to try to cover the basic costs associated with making this thing (transport/time/snacks). 

I really appreciate anything you can give (if you can afford it). PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE NO REWARDS FOR BECOMING A PATRON. YOU GET JACK SHIT, OK? SORRY. 

You can become a Patron here if you like.

It's nice to be back. Talk soon.
