The 9pm Authentic Aussie Inauthentic Robot Food Politics, with Added Platypus

In this episode Snarky Platypus and I taste test the new Arnott’s Shapes Aussie Legends crackers, and we hear how bots and trolls are spreading disinformation about Australia’s unprecedented bushfires.

You’ll hear about climate change, disinformation, election curiosities, artificial flavours, how you’re probably useless as far as politics goes, and how one brand of processed “cheese” slices contains a minimum 41% cheese.
