This episode of The 9pm Edict heads into a eucalypt forest in search of the internet, and encounters a dog.
You’ll hear about the National Broadband Network’s fibre-to-the-node trial, Russell Brand, Bertrand Russell, the 20th anniversary of a sarin nerve gas attack in Japan, the 25th birthday of the internet in Australia, the 60th birthday of nuclear power stations, Hillary Clinton and the mangoes, Google co-funder Larry Page’s threat to kill 100,000 people, and the arsehattery of Village Roadshow co-CEO Graham Burke.
And there’s the dog, of course.
And a cat. Sort of.
But don’t forget the dog.
