Michelle Guthrie’s payout from the ABC remains a secret, Brexit hardliners begin to extend the olive branch, another YA novel gets pulled from publication because of insensitivity, Washington Post attempts to almost apologise for the way they covered the Covington kids and James and Pete get into an actual debate over reports Trump is going to make an executive order over free speech on campus. We talk to IPA Research Fellow Daniel Wild about the selective morality of people who want to divest from coal, what his take on Scott Morrison’s energy deal is and his report on the effect government regulation has on prices of goods and services (20:02-36:54). We also talk to Dr Bella d’Abrera about moves to remove certain books from classroom syllabuses because they don’t reflect the sexuality of a classroom and how primary schools are celebrating International Woman’s Day (36:58-47:00).
