Why are not just the police but also councils and dozens of government agencies allowed to access your metadata without a warrant? (01:40-15:15) Do digital platforms like Google and Facebook need more regulation, and why on earth is the ACCC seeking to solve ‘fake news’ and prop up traditional media? (15:15-37:50) Is Barnaby Joyce right to say Newstart should be increased, and how should we think about it? (37:50-50:35) Dr Chris Berg and Scott Hargreaves are joined by Kurt Wallace and Professor Jason Potts to discuss these questions and share their culture picks: a podcast by Reason on postmodernism, a brilliant comedy called ‘Fleabag’ from Amazon Prime via the ABC, John Marsden’s new book ‘The Art of Growing Up’, and a fascinating ABC documentary series on the people and history of the Torres Strait (50:35-01:06:42).
