Hello one and all, many many thanks for coming on this magical journey that is Trend settings, and what a journey we have for you this week. Lisa Wilkinson is moving TV channels, Melania Trump isn’t even there anymore, Netflix has a new David Fincher series, and neutron stars colliding left right and center.
This week wildcard Jazzy Julz helps us break down the Harvey Weinstein expose, Tom DeLonge’s new fringe science organisation, hacking Australian defence and the new Star Wars trailer.
Mario, Manus Island, melanin, and missions to North Korea. This week was E3, so we had all sorts of video game news, whilst the government paid out millions to Manus Island detainees. Want a great tan? They’re making a drug for that, and is Trump putting secret schemes into action in North Korea?
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.
What a week for women! We’ve had International Women’s Day, street lights that assume your gender, and Emma Watson dropping the all for feminists everywhere?? To celebrate we’ve got four dudes on, including the most special of guests, the infamous Mr. Nick Khoo. We also talk the latest out of Wikileaks, Trump tweets and Beauty and the Beast.
Oscars mayhem, the winners, the losers, the winners then losers, the creeps…we have em all. Also, Logan non spoiler review, Boston Dynamics Handle robot and Horizon video game.
NASA finds 7 earths around one star, Uber struggles, Iceland’s presidents pineapple vendetta, most feared countries and Matt Damon’s Great Wall.
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.
So We’re back, and dammit If Donald Trump isn’t dominating the news cycle again. There is some good news though, Beyonce is pregnant once again, but this time with twins! We also talk Apple vs Google and whether science has gone too far with pig-human hybrids.
