This week James and Pete talk the new free speech laws, wrap up the New Zealand elections and the latest 18C case against journalists at The Australian. We interview Callum Thwaites, one of the QUT students that were brought to court under 18C about his story and what it was like being embroiled in this saga (9:56-26:19). We also talk to IPA Legal Fellow Aaron Lane to figure out just why Victoria has a public holiday today, as well as his front page appearance on The Herald Sun this week (26:25-36:31). We also give a Q&A clap to the New York Times for finally explaining the benefits of communism, why you can’t discuss Hall’s Marriage Theorum anymore, Trump staff using private email servers for official White House matters and talk, of course, the AFL Grand Final.
