The Brass Monkey Pod - Ep #13 - Alternatives to Labor and Liberal this Election + Liverpool FC!
Time to vote for our future! In this episode we delve into a few alternatives to the major’s and wax lyrical on the current state of the Australian political landscape. Then we point out some glaring hypocrisies behind Pauline Hanson’s campaign of supporting Adani coal and yet being against immigration. We ask why the Australian public buys these lies and when will voters wise up to the tactics of these politicians. There’s been a spate of egging and other ‘attacks’ on Australian politicians. The Brass Monkey Podcast look at the best ones and ask what these politicians expect when they are paid handsomely but act like children in parliament. Closing things off with a wrap up of Liverpool FC's season! All this and more on The Brass Monkey Podcast.

With the Australian federal election looming large on Saturday May 18th, we here at The Brass Monkey Pod are doing a deep dive on some of the seriously viable alternatives to the duopoly we’ve been enduring for how many decades now. This search for something better has lead us to Flux, which is a political party pushing for "Issue Based Direct Democracy (IBDD)" using Blockchain voting technology to revolutionise political participation in Australia. In this episode we sit down with Flux representative Ben Ballingall to gain a greater understating of the system itself, the technology driving it and the implications for politics at large.  Flux Website: Email Ben:

The Brass Monkey Pod - Ep #11 - Special Guest: Charlie Robinson, author of "The Octopus of Global Control"
In this special presentation of The Brass Monkey Pod, Mark sits down with very special guest Charlie Robinson, author of "The Octopus of Global Control",  which is a controversial non-fiction book that uncovers some of the biggest conspiracies in modern world history in a way that is both horrifying and hilarious. The book features quotes from over 500 people that had a front row seat to some of the most important events in history, and their voices paint a picture of what really happened that won’t be found in the history books. Charlie Robinson infuses his dark sense of humor to describe who the “Octopus” really is, how the eight tentacles of control work in concert to keep humanity under its control, and what we can do to break free. Strap yourself in for the first in a series of Podcasts with Charlie.  Get his book here:

The Brass Monkey Pod - Ep #9 - The Murder of Nipsey Hussle, The Aussie Budget & Calling Bullshit!
In today’s show! We celebrate the life of Nipsey Hussle, musically he was paving a way to be one of the greats but away from the studio he was impacting his community through entrepreneurship and a high business acumen. His death is an all-to-familiar reminder of the pain of gun violence and how it can break or bond a community. Prior to Nipsey’s death he was working on a documentary on controversial therapist Dr Sebi, who claimed to cure cancer aids amongst other things. Is there a link? Overnight the Australian budget came in and the public are desperate to hear the verdict! We go live with our in depth coverage of the ‘winners and losers’ for this budget highlighting that it’s more of a PR stunt than an actual sign of things to come. Closing the Pod off with a ‘calling bullshit’ on pine nuts! Yes pine nuts and chips in kebabs... crazy pod all available on The Brass Monkey Pod. Hit subscribe so you don’t miss an episode.

Today we do an emergency podcast for New Zealand and the tragic events that took place in Christchurch. We digest the heartache of having something like this happen in our own backyard, the politics that impacted it, the people that should take responsibility and the role of social media in the entire horrific event. What ownership is Mark Zuckerberg taking if any for it being live streamed on Facebook? We also take a look at the crocodile tears of Meghan McCain and her hate inspiring tirade at Ilhan Omar. We ask how and why a person like Meghan, daughter of John McCain, has a national platform to spew such BS. Then we question why these entitled and spoon fed children of the elite like Meghan think they should even comment on a congresswoman who is representing her elected voters to the best of her ability. Then we celebrate  Australia's newest cult hero - Eggboy! What a little legend! All this and more on The Brass Monkey Pod!

What role does religion play in his decision and why this is a slippery slope. Wrapping things up with taking time to shed a tear for the American upper-class who have been caught up in the college bribery scandal. Finally asking the questions, what is the actual point of going to university to regurgitate another persons thoughts? We close off a massive episode with a new segment ‘WHAT WOULD YOU DO?’ Where Soren is stuck deep in a group text dilemma. Wow! Best podcast of all time, here on The Brass Monkey Pod!
