#137 - And the brand played Waltzing Matilda

This week on Something Wonky we ask, how are anti-vaxxers like Reclaim Australia? And if Anzac Day isn’t about meme generators, what is it about? Plus Australia versus Humanity, Stop The Press and our brand new Seagull Section.

#135 - All the news that is fit to pink

The Focus Group

This week on Something Wonky we discuss Malcolm Fraser’s passing, cast an eye over his successor, then roll our other eye to the Foreign Minister. We gladly welcome the new surveillance state, before looking at the continuing fallout from the Moss Report in Australia versus Humanity. And of course, we take a minute to stop the press.

What did we like this week?

#133 - Return to Sender

This week on Something Wonky, Lifestyles of the forgotten and marginalised, Joe Hockey auditions for the role of Superman, there’s a sausage sizzle coming up in NSW,and we search for good government. Also, Australia squeals about the UN, The Australian stops squealing about data retention, and Andrew Bolt gives us a lesson in logic.
