Weekly Wrap 505: Finally, productivity begins for 2020

This week of Monday 27 January to Sunday 2 February 2020 seems to have been my actual start of the year. I got some writing done. I got a three-hour podcast done. And I didn’t die in the heat when I went for a quiet drink.


  • “The 9pm Totally Convincing Official Truth Theories Live”, being The 9pm Edict episode 95. It’s also on Spreaker and SoundCloud. This is the utterly ridiculous three-hour livestream of conspiracy theories recorded on Saturday night.

The 9pm Edict podcast is supported by the generosity of its listeners. Please subscribe for special benefits or throw a few coins into the tip jar.

The Week Ahead

The Australian Parliament returns from holidays this week, and there’s bound to be plenty to write about. On Monday I’ll be mapping out a plan of attack, and writing some stuff through the week..

On Wednesday I’m heading down to Sydney for a lunchtime briefing from Bitdefender, back repairs, and the discussion of Australia-China relations: The state of play at the Australia-China Relations Institute and the University of Technology Sydney. I’ll bne staying in Sydney overnight

Further Ahead

Here’s what I’ve pencilled in. Please let me know if there’s anything I should add. Send airline tickets if it’s outside the Sydney region.
