The Climate Strikes AGAIN & State/Federal Divide
Parts of eastern Australia are experiencing a “once in a 100 year“ weather event, but didn’t this happen ten years ago? We discuss the devastating floods and the absence of a climate change discussion in the political landscape. We also throw our minds back a couple weeks to discuss the landslide Western Australian election. We explore why one side of politics dominates state politics and the other dominates federally. Finally, some pop culture controversy. We are going on a break but will be active on Instagram - @99Talks.Pod.

Wait, Where Did Our Rights Go?
Content warning: general topic surrounds sexual assault and family violence. ANOTHER BIG WEEK IN AUSPOL. Ans we're still talking about women - the march for justice, and an attack on our superannuation. Sorry, but not sorry - we cover what's happening and this issue will not relent. But, it's exhausting - how do you feel? Slide into our DMs with your thoughts on this week's eppisode @99talks.pod on insta.

A Royal Mess & Australian Independence
Kings and Queens and everybody in between, welcome to our latest episode and to a royal mess. Did Prince Harry and Meghan expose that an institution which relies on the idea of a ‘perfect bloodline’ is racist? Wow, we can’t believe it! And in looking at the pile of flailing royals in our ‘Mother Country, is it time for Australia to fly the nest? Hit us up with your thoughts @99talks.pod on Instagram!

The Pink Taxes You Don't See
TRIGGER WARNING: Sexual violence. Skip to 8:01 to avoid. In a flow-on episode from "The Woman Problem" a few weeks ago, we discuss the pink taxes that you can't see, breaking down what creates the 14% pay gap in Australia despite legislative "equal pay", and what sacrifices one gender has to make to get there. This includes a glass ceiling on more than just women, and Jayden even has a revelation about a key difference between him and his female peers that he'd never picked up on. Make sure you join the convo over @99talks.pod on Instagram!

There’s A Lot Going On
Yikes, what a week! So much going on and would you believe we tried recording this twice? This week we cover the beginning of the vaccine rollout, the Aussie Government’s backflip on the Facebook news ban, and Craig Kelly’s shock exit from the Liberal Party.

Power Players: Jenny Morrison and Mark Zuckerberg
It's been one hell of a week in the Australian politics and media landscape! A young former Liberal staffer has come out about her experience of assault at her workplace, Parliament House, and the Prime Minister's wife somehow dominated the formal response to her allegations. A few days later, we woke up to zero news in our Facebook feeds - what happened, why, and who is at the centre here? How do we feel about our laws being written by international tech companies and surprise! Ariel and Jayden disagree.

"The Woman Problem"
What is the Woman Problem? How, in seeking to 'solve' it, have we commodified women further into the most appealing tool in the man's game that is politics? This is not just a conversation for women - whatever kind of person you are, this is a conversation you need to have. Get involved at @99talks.pod on instagram. You can watch 'The Bullying of Julia Gillard' here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsECK-gRCGc&ab_channel=Practicalpolitics

Is Brunch Stealing Your Future?
Happy Friday 99ers. Today - the dilemma millennials and generation Z face in our future: homes. Is there a generational shift in the attitude towards renting vs buying? Is this at the hands of a generational shift in house prices while wages plateau? AND, are your smashed avos truly to blame... all this and more in this episode.

'Australia Day', Celebrate or Debate?
It's that time of year again in Australia! As expected, the debate surrounding the date of Australia Day has been ignited again, by Cricket Australia's decision to ditch references to 'Australia Day' in their Big Bash league. We discuss this issue and its origins and explore a potential generational divide on the issue too. If there is one thing you do this week, please ensure you are listening to those most directly impacted by this conversation - Indigenous Australians.

BONUS: The Most Impeached President Ever
Hey 99'ers, surprise! This is a bonus ep so we can follow through on our promise to move on from America in future episodes, but also not ignore a massive event in history. In this episode we whirl through how Donald Trump has been impeached, what for, what happens next (will he be removed from office??) and what this means for the future. Enjoy!

Off With A Bang! Democracy Under Threat in 2021
Hey friends! Today on 99 Talks we chat about the insurrection at Capitol Hill and what to make of the whole ordeal. We recorded this episode prior to Trump's impeachment, so (sort of) ignore Jayden's declaration that we're done with America and keep your eyes peeled for some bonus content soon. We also make our way back to Aus to look at the restriction of "free speech" (DOES Australia have protected free speech?) on a Member of Parliament to do with his claims around a drug that can supposedly cure COVID... so the discussion doesn't really feel that far away from American politics in the end. Enjoy and don't forget to take part in the conversation over at @99talks.pod on instagram.

2021, Can We Do Better This Time?
Hellllooooo 99-ers and HELLO 2021. In this second attempt at this episode (following some rudely problematic technology) we recap 2020, take a deep breath and look at what is on the radar for 2021. There’s set to be a lot going down in the history books for this year too! ...and on that, sh*t hit the fan in America in between recording this episode and uploading it, so our comments on Trump here are almost comical in hindsight. So that will be a juicy topic next week! Thanks for coming by for another episode of 99 Talks xx

A Lifetime of Climate Conversation & Insecure Men
Happppy Saturday, friends! Today we are talking climate... particularly the economics of climate change, but we do have a ramble. But that's the point of 99 Talks - to let critical conversations between young people flow. We also have a brief discussion on this week's winner of Most Insecure Male award, who claims the wife of president-elect Joe Biden is 'fraudulent' for refusing to drop her title of 'Dr'. Don't forget to DM us your thoughts! Join the conversation @99talks.pod on instagram.

What Just Happened?? Messy (M)ovember
HEY, WELCOME TO SEASON 2! Thought we'd given up?! Nahhhh. We are back after a break for uni exams (ew) and we need to debrief - wtf was November, 2020? Mostly, a mess. We open up a conversation on mens' mental health and the role of expectations surrounding masculinity - share your experiences with us please - and delve deeeep into the very confusing American election which is somehow, not quite over. Also! Vaccine chat - what's the go there? Still on? Whit explains. The podcast referenced by Ariel was 'It Has All Gone Too Far', by the New York Times' podcast The Daily, hosted by Michael Barbaro. Hit us up on insta to join the talks! You can find us @99talks.pod .

'Yes I do the cooking, yes I do the cleaning'... and uphold the economy.
Today: Unpaid labour!! What is it, who does it, where does it come from, is it legitimate 'work'? What does it say about our society, and what does it NOT say about our economy? Plus, the impacts this has on superannuation, and some tidbits from this week's news cycle. Enjoy the extra long episode this week as we'll be taking a short break while we all sit exams. We can't wait to rejoin you soon!

Your press, or their revenue?
Who controls 64% of Australian's media? Spoiler: ONE man (essentially). What are the consequences of a duopolised mediascape? Is what you think, really what YOU think? We discuss the implications of de-regulated media law alongside a brief lowdown of the significance of local government, and a fiery discussion on how uni fee hikes destabilise Australia's claim to the 'fair-go'.

The Budget (but make it relevant)
Happy 6th week of being in your ears, friends! The Federal Budget has been released and we know it mostly feels like an irrelevant chunk of policy... but it isn't! We pick out some highlights for you and break down what they reeeeally mean. But don't worry, we didn't forget about an iconic moment in the Australian Senate this week, nor did we have it in us to ignore Trump's... disastrous rant. Enjoy!

PLEASE EXPLAIN: The Left vs The Right?
Hello 99'ers! Welcome to our brand NEW SERIES, 'Please Explain'. We know that some things get lost in translation as you grow up, get to sit at the adult's table, and be part of political and economic discussions. We've all 'mh-hmm'-ed along, pretending to understand things that we don't... but Please Explain is here to change that! We'll be breaking down those things that we often only half-understand. To get the ball rolling, we tackle the LEFT side of politics (and economics) and the RIGHT. Are they different, how so, where did they come from and do these labels reeeeally matter? Tune in to be a part of the convo and don't forget to join in over at @99talks.pod on insta.

Do we need to care? The Stock Market, America Votes, & RBG
Do young people need to care about the stock market? Honestly... what even is it and how does it work? Whitnie breaks this down... but short answer, it's in your best interest to be across it! AND, do Aussies need to care about the US election and the death of a Supreme Court justice you'd never heard of before this week? (yes. let us explain why!)
