I’m getting back into podcasting! And this is where I explain what’s going on, why I’m re-releasing the back catalog of Shire Network News and a bunch of other things. Join me and subscribe in your favourite podcast app.
This episode was first broadcast June 12, 2005. Social Justice and diversity get an early mention in this episode. Keith Thompson’s interview is all about leaving the left a long time ago. He talks about rejecting the term “Social Justice” because justice is always social!
Mentioned in this week’s edition of Shire Network News, the official podcast of Silent Running, Amnesty International, Bob Geldof, Powerline, Joe Trippi, Citizen Smash, the Chinese government’s registration of blogs, TownHall.com, Victor Davis Hanson, the collapse of the EU constitution, Charlie Quidnunc of the Rip and Read blog, the Democrats being whiny bitches about the Patriot Act, James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), Robert Mugabe’s contest with the ghost of Pol Pot, Zimbabwe Pundit, Howard Dean, James Lileks’ new Screedblog, the Chinese Cultural Revolution finally comes to the University of Oregon, Joanne Jacobs, and why a staggering death toll must surely force the US government to pull out of Washington DC.
Thanks to the amazing archive.org, we have the original show notes from this episode, as broadcast on 5th June 2005. This features the first ever “Full of Crap Report” from Laurence Simon. Got to love this episode: Global Warming makes an appearance in this episode too, because themes.
Podcast talks about the #FakeNews with Aussie Dave in 2005
Includes interviews with Damian Penny and Aussie Dave from Israellycool. What’s somewhat distressing, listening to this back 13 years later is how we find very similar themes to those still being discussed.
Aussie Dave’s interview in particular (around 17 mins in) covers aspects of #FakeNews he was seeing all the way back then.
