Going back a bit further, I was commenting on politics and SF at the "Year of the Stainless Steel Rat" internet convention, looking at SF, Cyberpunk and other issues. Is our current era of manipulative advertising and stuff like Facebook being able to predict our behaviour better than we can - is that presaged by "Cyberpunk"? Well, actually, I thought of it more in terms of Phillip K. Dick; his idea became the film "Blade Runner". You can read more of my thoughts here. I was also talking about various Pirate Party and other ideas too ... my comments start around page 39, part of that pdf.
On the show broadcast Tuesday 31st January, I'll be doing an outline of some ideas of Australian Aboriginal ( Koori ) astronomy. We also have some other bits and pieces - including a past look at Mark Latham. I hope to take a look at his past book "The Latham Diaries" on the show on the 7th of February. Noon-2pm Sydney time, broadcasting on 88.9FM and streaming on www.radioskidrow.org .
The 7th of February should also include a discussion with Nicky and her offsider, talking about the marches in support of Iran in Sydney. There's some real problems there - tune in and find out!
On 12th February, I'll be giving a talk on the scientific and philosophical status of evolution at the NSW Humanists Darwin Day event - look into it yourself, but you'll also find stuff on meetup here.
Continuing with the evolution theme, on the 21st February show, I'll be commenting on a debate between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox, "Has Science Buried God"?
You'll also be able to hear an interview I did with John, who had an unfortunate collision with legal system. His defence - which I found entirely credible - was completely ignored by the Magistrate. Have a listen and find out.
Also on the 21st Feb show, I plan to give my latest comment on Nuclear Power. You can hear a past show where I made comment on nuclear power.
