It's hard to believe that this podcast began in 2010. Welcome to a remix of the first recycled Edict -- a compilation of least-worst bits from the early episodes of The 9pm Edict first posted in March 2019.In this episode, there's some nostalgia about Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott, the digital economy, Peter Garrett, Sydney's Vivid Festival, NIMBYs, journalism, and more.All the details are at:https://stilgherrian.com/edict/r00001a/Support this podcast at:https://the9pmedict.com/tip/https://skank.com.au/subscribe/
The 9pm Autumn Series 2021 continues with another plunge down the wombat warren of internet disinformation, this time with Elise Thomas from the Institute for Strategic Dialogue.We talk about disinformation campaigns including Russia's interference in the 2016 US elections, sure, but also campaigns by Turkey, Pakistan, between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and around both the Australian bushfires of 2019–2020 and the coronavirus pandemic.And since it's April Fool's Day, I'll throw in some thoughts about that.Full podcast details and credits at:https://the9pmedict.com/edict/00130/Support this podcast at:https://the9pmedict.com/tip/https://skank.com.au/subscribe/

What a year! At the end of 2020 we can't even gather people in a pub to talk about how terrible it was. Well we can. But we shouldn't. So we didn't. We did this instead.In this ridiculously long episode of The 9pm Edict, I chat separately and remotely with four very special guests to consider what happened in 2020 and what it might mean for 2021. 1. Award-winning satirist Mark Humphries (@markhumphries) of 7.30 fame etc, inaugural champion of Mastermind Australia, former co-presenter of Pointless Australia, and much more.2. Health and science reporter Tegan Taylor (@teegstar), co-presenter of ABC Radio’s excellent Coronacast.3. Journalist Osman Faruqi (@oz_f), editor of the 7am podcast, among other things.4. Yun Jiang (@yun_aus), editor of The China Story blog at ANU and a director of China Policy Centre. Also one of the people that Senator Eric Abetz kicked off at.We talk about so, so many things, including journalism, quokkas and quolls, the Melbourne lockdown, savoury biscuits, COVID-19 (obviously), China, Scott Morrison, birds, the politics of policing, the economy, Donald Trump (also obviously), and much much more.And it's all punctuated by my own musings on the magnificent and most memorable year that was 2020.Full podcast details and credits at:https://the9pmedict.com/edict/00127/Support this podcast at:https://the9pmedict.com/tip/https://skank.com.au/subscribe/
This isn't quite part of the End of Spring Series 2020, but here we are anyway with an unscheduled podcast just for you.In this episode we hear a prediction from 2016, and a theological theory about why Democrats are bad. But it's not all about America. There are also Christmas messages from some of Australia's favourite politicians, plus genuine medical advice, and quite a bit of subdued anger.Full podcast details and credits at:https://the9pmedict.com/edict/00126/Support this podcast at:https://the9pmedict.com/tip/https://skank.com.au/subscribe/
Today’s guest in the End of Spring Series 2020 is Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell, a cultural anthropologist who's trying to create a whole new field of engineering. She's a geek.We talk about many, many things at very high speed including robots, American culture, artificial intelligence, conspiracies, wombat warrens, telegraphs, rugged individualism, science fiction, coffee, elevators, and Isaac Asimov.And of course the coronavirus, because that's the thing that's dominated 2020.Full podcast details and credits at:https://the9pmedict.com/edict/00125/Support this podcast at:https://the9pmedict.com/tip/https://skank.com.au/subscribe/

Cam Smith aka @sexenheimer on the Twitters has spent way, way too long down the rabbit-holes of the conspiracy theorists. He joins me for the second proper episode in The 9pm End of Spring Series 2020.Cam is astoundingly prolific. Apart from his Twitter feed being full of fascinating material like the stuff we discuss in this pod, he co-presents Yeah Nah Pasaran! on Melbourne radio 3CR, presents Rock & Roll Ate My Brain on Gippsland FM, and does the podcasts Hypothepod and, with comedian Ben Pobjie, Gather Around Me.He's also the author of Hot Knockers, "a journey through the world of people knocking on doors and other people wanting to know who is on the other side before opening said door".We talk about QAnon, rainmaking, angels and demons, COVID-19, toxic masculinity, horse-headed humans, the so-called "Bonk Ban", and MKUltra. Also Donald Trump. Obviously.Full podcast details and credits at:https://the9pmedict.com/edict/00122/Support this podcast at:https://the9pmedict.com/tip/https://skank.com.au/subscribe/

It's Halloween! In this special livestreamed episode there's, yes, bad sex and the Queensland election. There's also a sex trivia quiz. And drinking. Oh yes, there was certainly drinking.There's also a status report on the US election, kind of, and a little too much information about Donald Trump's penis. The recording is slightly shorter than four hours, though, because the gaps between segments have been removed.Full podcast details, credits, and a list of the many, many people who are supporting The 9pm End of Spring Series are at:http://the9pmedict.com/edict/00120/Support this podcast at:https://the9pmedict.com/tip/https://skank.com.au/subscribe/
