This week James and Pete discuss Richard Thaler’s Nobel Prize and the Harvey Weinstein scandal. We interview Herald Sun columnist Rita Panahi on Harvey, what it’s like being so outspoken on Twitter and how she got into journalism (9:37-30:31). We also talk to IPA Research Fellow Daniel Wild on Richard Thaler’s work and what it means for the Nanny State (30:40-36:55), and IPA Research Fellow Darcy Allen on becoming Dr Darcy Allen (37:03-42:50). We also talk why you can’t say love is an ingredient in the US, why Queenslanders have to keep the air conditioning 26 degrees, the latest indicator of the downfall of the Liberal parties in Australia and the University of Sydney Vice Chancellor’s reply to Dr Bella d’Abrera.
