#114 - Use Your Words

This week on Something Wonky, The Focus Group says “Show me the money”, unless you live in poverty. Goes the biff with visiting dignitaries and ruins lots of things. Stop The Press goes undercover with Sharri Markson and finds leftists everywhere, while 2GB gets a popularity bounce with racists.

#113 - Citation Needed

This week on Something Wonky, Stop The Press looks at The Courier Mail’s salacious treatment of murder victim Mayang Prasetyo. Australia versus humanity is still terrible. The Focus Group asks, “Who are we keeping safe?”, finds our government is still incompetent, and does the war bit.

#111 - Fright for Your Rights

This week on Something Wonky, the Focus Group travels to Arnham land for almost as long as Tony Abbott did and checks in on the Budget. Australia versus Humanity observes Cambodia from a distance. Stop The Press wonders what to watch when Lateline gets cancelled and we introduce our new segment Terror Australis.

#110 - Operation "But this time it will be different baby."

This week on Something Wonky, we don our Auscam trousers, dust off our fridge magnets and see if we can declare sexism dead yet (Spoiler: No). Plus, coal, climate and cannabis.
