My Radio Show - streaming out of sydney, and some podcasts

(John August) #1

I’ve announced it here before ( April 2016), but in discussion with @AndrewDowning and @MarkG , thought I would let people know of my community radio program, which I broadcast on Tuesdays from noon-2pm from Marrickville in Sydney on radio 2RSR, 88.9FM and also streaming on and . I’ll make another post following this one about tomorrow’s program.

But there’s some past programs on the internet, including some discussion with MarkG on prosperity : and a whole show, including Terry Dwyer on some aspects of land value taxation ( watch out for his “Just a lump sum capitalisation” - uggh - something I should have questioned him about ) :

I’ve had other discussions with MarkG I may release at some stage.

And you can find more public material with a search on soundcloud :

Here’s some past privately podcasted material :

Testimony from the 1870s


Kerosene Fridges

Evolution and status

The pope, etc. etc.

Natural gas exports and gas behaviour

Political debate

Judgemental artists

Abortion and the then nsw legislation


Guest : Nicco on the party that started the NSW Council for Civil Liberties

Little molecules


Spoken word : the bunyip king by Dorothy Hewitt

Spoken word : Abbot - we’ll all be rooned

Tim Josling, pedophilia and the church

Tim Josling and voluntary euthanasia

On my show tomorrow - I’ll have James Murray on Bitcoin, Black Rock’s Alladin - the crystal ball gazing tool noted in Adam Curtis’ Hypernormalisation and the nature of money and the banks.

That’s noon-2pm tomorrow on 2RSR, 88.9FM and streaming as per the most recent post.

James Murray is an economist, previously employed by some high end banks, with a long involvement in financial activism including Georgist principles, and was kind enough to help me hand out material in support of my local government candidacy.

Bonnie Curtis on her Sydney Fringe Dance project - “Girls Girls Girls”.

I hope to fit in various segments - spoken word, location, maxim

Tomorrow - I’ll be talking about UBI, in the shadow of the Greens initiative. Also I’ll be interviewing Professor Ian Frazer, and a few other things besides. Anyway, my show is always worth listening to ( of course ), but here’s my sporadic pointer to its content.

What does everyone think about linking some of the episodes on the front page? @national_council ?

It will freshen things up a bit, and although it’s not officially endorsed we could pick specific episodes that talk about things on our platform.
