Episode #18: Gameshow of Thrones

This week, the Politburo try out a new segment! In “The Great Proletarian Pub Quiz”, Quizmistress Emmy interrogates Ti and Justine on socialist trivia. The prize? Mostly mockery.

Last week was Waitangi Day! On the anniversary of the day on which Emmy’s indigenous ancestors got scammed by the Yakubian White Devils, our “The Labour Party is Not Your Friend” segment discusses the Labour government’s betrayal of Māori. The Treaty of Waitangi was a lie in 1840, and it’s a lie in 2019. We need communism babey!

In “Concerned Comrades” we welcome our new nazi listeners from Reddit! Also, Ti discloses their sexual fixation on the Grinch.

We “Snitch the Sitch” on Aotearoa’s left this fortnight. The United States and the international imperialist bloc are trying to prop up an unelected rightist leader as “president” of Venezuela. Organise Aotearoa is rallying outside the Amerikkkan consulate in Auckland to show there is a groundswell of opposition to US regime change wars.

We finish up with “Cum in my Library”, settling down with friend of the show Kate Hawkesby. Just to keep our listeners on their toes, Emmy ends up emphatically agreeing with every word our reactionary friend utters.
