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.
Topic 1 – Harvey Weinstein Sexual Harassment
The floodgates have opened on years of not so secret sexual harassment and rape perpetrated by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. A-list celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow have come out with stories of harassment, condemnation has been universal, though sometimes from hypocritical sources, ahem, Ben Affleck.
Topic 2 – To The Stars: Academy of Arts and Science
Tom DeLonge of Blink 182 fame has launched a private organisation to push the boundaries of science and normalise studies often labelled pseudoscience or just plain crazy. Is this just a shameless money grab or is this for real?
Topic 3 – Defence Hack
An Australian defence contractor has been hacked. The small 50 person company had one poor IT guy who had to look after some pretty sensitive data. Julz asks us if anyone is really safe from being hacked.
Topic 4 – The Last Jedi Trailer
We talk the new Star Wars episode VIII, was it spoilers? Was it all just a misdirect? Ali breaks it down, and we ask ourselves, are trailers even worth watching if it’s a movie you want to watch?
