Welcome back to you and welcome back to me! (Chris) is back from China, the dream team back together again! This week can you believe there’s been another police shooting in the US, and along with that Brad Pitt comes out about their big divorce. In trailer time we’re talking the dark tower and the defenders, as well as the worst festival of all time, Fyre festival.
This week in trend settings, guardians of the galaxy 2 dropped, North Korea threatens Australia, one nation’s campaign in Macalister collapses in two days, Anzac Facebook controversy with Yassmin Abdel-Magied, and science finds caterpillars that eat plastic and grow lamb foetuses in bags.
This week we just had too much to talk about, the Fate of the Furious movies crazy money making formula, Facebook wants to read your thoughts, Turkey’s Erdogan on the path to dictatorship. Ali saw an advance screening for Jordan Peele’s Get Out, and the 457 Visa is no more.
This week we look at the Pepsi ad controversy and new Syrian war crimes. For lighter news we take on Rick and Morty, Netflix’ 13 Reasons Why and the best April Fools jokes on the internet.
This week, in trend settings, we talk about the Super Bowl, so many ads, Cory Bernardi, the worst politician, the coveted male contraception and Barrack Obama’s fantastic vacation.
This week we talk all things inauguration week, women marching, trumps executive orders along with the age old debate, Netflix vs Stan and the razzies nominations. And Star Wars, The Last Jedi.
Aaaaaand we’re back! Trend Settings in 2017 is bigger and better than ever before and we’re kicking off with a jam-packed episode! We might only fit in a few topics but they’re juicy fresh. The Golden Globes were as eventful as always, packed with controversial moments and speeches, and speaking of, Donald Trump is still a thing. Over the break we watched a whole lot of movies & TV so catch up, and this week on the news a politician showed how stupid he was.
This week we love Dr Strange, except Chris, but he never likes anything, NoDAPL is a long confusing story, we try to make sense of it. Apple unrevolutionises the laptop again with the MacBook Pro, the Australian government keeps beating on asylum seekers, just how much political mileage can they get in this race to the bottom? And black mirror is a tv show, and a damn good one at that.
