  • 177. DRILLED, The Worst Idea of All Time, Reply All

    Zane Recommends - DRILLED #science #dry #angrymakingA true-crime podcast about climate change, hosted and reported by award-winning investigative journalist Amy Westervelt. Climate accountability — investigating the various drivers of delay on climate action — is critical to understanding and addressing climate change. Drilled is an independent news outlet focused on climate accountability. The Drilled podcast, launched in 2017, now has an audience of more than one million listeners worldwide and is consistently among the top 100 science podcasts. Drilled has earned rave reviews from The New Yorker, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and received a 2019 “Excellence in Digital Storytelling” award from the Online News Association, as well as the 2021 Covering Climate Now award for audio. Recommends - The Worst Idea of All Time #Movies #Comedy #NZHumour #OZHumour #TrashFunTWIOAT is an award-winning smash hit comedy podcast hosted by kiwi comedians Guy 'Flash' Montgomery and Tim 'Timbly' Batt (known jointly as the Frost Fellas, The Boiz, etc). The pair have been punishing themselves with movies for your enjoyment since Feb 2014, starting by watching and reviewing Grown-Ups 2 once a week, every week, for a full year. They applied the same treatment to Sex and The City 2, Sex and The City, We Are You Friends, and are now watching and reviewing every softcore adult film in the Emmanuelle franchise. Sub-projects include My Week With Cats, where the pair went to see CATS (2019) at the cinema every day for a week, and Podcast In A Tree which saw them record while in different trees around Aotearoa New Zealand. Harry Recommends- Reply AllAt its most basic, Reply all is a podcast about the internet. It explores stories about how people shape the internet, and how the internet shapes people. Hugely successful and arguably seminal, Reply All gained a massive listenership based on the originality of its stories, and intelligence of its writing, and the chemistry of its hosts. In 2021 it released a controversial episode series that led to its decline and eventual cancellation in recent history.

It's the podcast that will arm young people with everything they need to get involved in dinner table conversations ahead of the next federal election.The series will feature in-depth interviews with key politicians, experts, and advocates. Recommends - Working Class History#solo host #scripted #documentary style is not made by the actions of a few rich and powerful individuals, like so much of the history we learn in school. History is made by the combined everyday actions of hundreds of millions of us: women, men, youth, people of colour, migrants, indigenous people, LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, workers, the unemployed, housewives - the working class. Our project is dedicated to all those who have struggled in the past for a better world, and who continue to do so now.As well as our podcast and social media outlets we are working on building an interactive website and global map of people's history. We are committed to being completely independent, and making our history available to everyone, so we have no adverts and apart from a bit of bonus content we don't put anything behind a paywall. We are not academics or experts, we are just ordinary workers doing this on our own time to try to help educate and inspire a new generation of activists with lessons from the past. This podcast is about how we, together, have fought for a better world.
