In this week’s episode, for global politics, with the arrival of the Omicron variant, we talk about vaccine distribution strategy. What is best from a utility perspective and how might this diverge from the best course for countries politically? We discuss! We then talk about federal politics, with the (shocking) unanimous passing of the anti-conversion therapy legislation in Parliament. We dig into what this means for the federal Conservatives electoral fortunes, as well to whether this new cooperation in the House is here to stay.
For PodReport this week, we both listened to the new Jon Stewart podcast, The Problem with Jon Steward, which delves into important but underreported issues today.
