Description

Hi, I’m Cory O’Connor from Geelong, Australia. My podcast, CORY TALKS features news on what’s happening in the world around us. My opinions feature, but first and foremost is to present factual information for my listeners because facts in journalism seems to be endangered at the moment.

I’m not a journalist, but I know enough to see though most of the stuff that is put forth as news in the 21st century.

Apart from being a podcaster, I love listening to podcasts, sci-fi, social issues, media, TV and movies.

On this new edition of CORY TALKS… It’s a check-in from me… shaken edition. All shook up for more than one reason. There was a 6.0 earthquake east of Melbourne today (Wednesday 22nd September). I didn’t feel it, but many did across Victoria, as well as three other states and the nation’s capital. The primary thing I’m shaken by is the level of rioting that’s been going on lately in Melbourne at protests over the lockdown, mask wearing, social distancing and the construction industry… ooh and who can forget… the vaccine.

On this new edition of CORY TALKS… It has been a long time coming. A very long time. But now I am fully vaccinated with the coronavirus vaccine. I talk about my path to get to this point. The COVID-19 tests I had when I wasn’t well that both come back negative and the wait to get the vaccine I wanted – the one I felt far less risk about. Thanks to my cousin Faith, who’s taken me to the not so close vaccination centre. I truly appreciate it. Subscribe and turn notifications on so you can be alerted when new editions drop.

On this new edition of CORY TALKS… Here’s my ten-minute rant on anti-vaxxers and the Federal Government of Australia. Fear not (about the vaccine and what I say in this special), I do not believe there’s some sort of conspiracy to track your movements – your Facebook already does that unless you’ve turned those features off. These are my views. They may also be yours. But they may also NOT be yours. I just ask that you listen. My views are not for political or financial reasons. I freely put them out there because I am concerned that a number of people in Australia are failing to keep themselves and their loved ones safe by doing some good old research that doesn’t include social media. But facts and I guess a good place to start is with your doctor. My second COVID-19 jab is tomorrow (Tuesday 14th September). I’ll present another special episode later this week… once I shake off the government operative following me - only joking!!!

On this new edition of CORYTALKS… Today on this podcast release date, it’s been 20 years since the terrorist attacks on the United States which resulted in the deaths of many thousands of people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

On this special edition of CORYTALKS… VICTORIAN LOCKDOWN – part two The day after the last special edition on the Victorian Lockdown, the state’s Premier Daniel Andrews announced that while the signs were encouraging, Victoria would need more time to get a hold of this Delta variant of COVID-19. The Premier announced the lockdown would be extended for a further seven days. New South Wales removalists seem to have a thing for Victoria. Victoria Police turn some away from the border in Mildura, in the north of the state. Not before fining them. By Friday things got worse for New South Wales which puts other states at risk. The NSW Premier wanted extra Pfizer vaccines from other states to deal with the Sydney burgeoning numbers. But that’s not happening, and the Prime Minister put a Band-Aid on the situation extending the length of time between the doses to ensure enough people in New South Wales get their first dose. If that isn’t a clear indication the Federal Government don’t have nearly enough Pfizer vaccines! The arrogance of the New South Wales Premier when almost two months ago she appeared on radio and said NSW would not be helping Victoria out with extra doses during the states first Delta variant outbreak at the time. Protests in NSW, Victoria and Queensland over the lockdowns has almost certainly guaranteed the lockdowns will have to continue. New Zealand has put an at least eight-week pause on the Trans-Tasman Travel Bubble until the outbreaks are under control in Australia. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern also has a plan to evacuate Kiwi’s currently in Australia. If only Australia had a strong and effective leader like Ms Ardern. At the time of recording, South Australia and Victoria will be coming out of lockdown tonight, but in Victoria there will still be COVID-19 restrictions. All the details are at https://coronavirus.vic.gov.au Love to find a nice “and finally” story. It’s hard during a pandemic, but this one is a gem. It’s a report from ABC News Australia of a group of taxi drivers from my home city of Geelong, who have been putting their hands up to help the community right back to the first lockdown in March 2020.

On this special edition of CORYTALKS… The Victorian government announced a snap five-day lockdown to deal with COVID-19 Delta variant cases popping up in the state as a result Victorians returning from New South Wales who tested positive and the removalist crew of three who hauled furniture from Sydney to Melbourne and then on to Adelaide – causing headaches for health officials in three states. The lockdown began at 11:59pm on Thursday 15th of July and at the time of publication, is still hoped to end tomorrow night (11:59pm Tuesday 20th of July). The decision could be delayed right up until tomorrow depending on the level of control over the outbreak that contact tracers and health officials believe they’ve reached.

On this final edition of Cory Talks… The New South Wales government may actually be taking their lockdown seriously now as restrictions were tightened on Friday and further mask rules taking effect from tomorrow (Tuesday 13 July 2021). Sunday the NSW Premier announced there could be as many as 100 new cases today. Sadly, an elderly woman from New South Wales died from COVID-19. As numbers continue to frustrate hardworking contact tracers and health officials in NSW, news has arisen that nearly 200 students at an exclusive Catholic school in Sydney were given the Pfizer vaccine by mistake. South of NSW, restrictions have eased in Victoria with the whole state on the same level of lessened restrictions now. But with school holidays now over, the Andrews government is concerned for families returning home from COVID areas of concern. Former Liberal Party member Julia Banks comes out swinging at her party and its leader, the Prime Minister! It was NAIDOC Week last week, a yearly celebration for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples. Read more about the “two-way” learning happening in the Northern Territory. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-07-04/teaching-blends-aboriginal-culture-language-western-numeracy/100237208 This week on IN FOCUS, I follow up on a report from last week and the petition in Australia to halt the Federal Government’s Cashless Debit Card (Indue card) which can be found at https://www.aph.gov.au/e-petitions/petition/EN2799 but please note it is only available to Australian residents and the petition closes on 21 July 2021 at 11:59pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. As most things, there’s more to the story like the shareholders in Indue who stand to profit from those less fortunate. It's been 50 years since John Lennon released the anthem “Imagine”. Former US President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn have something truly special to celebrate. Australian tennis stars Ashy Barty and Dylan Alcott celebrate after their Wimbledon wins. America’s 4th of July cyber attack, Microsoft making a change in its new operating system to a screen many around the world would have seen at least once over the years. TikTok lengthening their videos. Cats are taking their rightful place as social media stars.

On this new edition of Cory Talks… #ScottyFromMarketing #ScottyTheAnnouncer whatever you wish to call Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, I’m dissecting his (yet another) announcement for a plan – I think it might be a plan for a plan, that he delivered last Friday in relation to the vaccine rollout and his #ScottFromMedicalSchool announcement that those under 40 in Australia could get the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine if they wanted to. This is despite the advice from his government’s own experts. Who needs experts when we have Scott Morrison! Yes… I’m not a happy chappy! Also I’m not happy to hear that around half of those who have entered/returned to Australia since the beginning of the pandemic, have been in quarantine. It’s like Canberra isn’t taking the situation seriously. New anti-wage theft laws introduced in Victoria. COVID-19 info from right around Australia, well most of it. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has a very quick wit. On IN FOCUS, it’s more than ten years since the news of the phone hacking scandal in the UK. I’m listening to the British Scandal podcast which is looking at that now. The incredible shrinking regional news operations in Australia. The petition in Australia to halt the Federal Government’s Cashless Debit Card (Indue card) is waiting for signatures at https://www.aph.gov.au/e-petitions/petition/EN2799 but please note it is only available to Australian residents and the petition closes on 21 July 2021 at 11:59pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. There’s also this story to read on the cashless debit card, https://theconversation.com/the-cashless-debit-card-causes-social-and-economic-harm-so-why-trial-it-again-74985 Sky News Australia host Chris Kenny is a rude man.

On this new edition of Cory Talks… Almost one week into the two-week COVID-19 lockdown in New South Wales. But that’s not the biggest story this week. It’s the Prime Minister acting like he has a degree in science and medicine. It’s dividing medical experts and state governments. There’s links to all the state and territory government websites relating to COVID-19 on my websites, https://corytalks.com and https://coryoconnor.com The Federal Liberal Party’s coalition partner, The Nationals, have reshuffled their frontbench, once again promoting the woman at the centre if the Sports Rorts scandal, Bridget MacKenzie. Two versions of the facts in the Ben Roberts-Smith defamation trial. Neither show the Australian Special Forces in a good light. Trump has not and will never change. While stopping short of announcing that he’d contest the 2024 American election, the Orange Idiot did insist his job was stolen with some of the thousands attending his first rally, claiming he was still the President. TikTok and WeChat get a reprieve from the Biden administration, at least for the time being. We don’t trust Instagram Influencers according to the 2021 Australia Talks Survey, but advertisers are still using influencers to promote their goods and services. Plus in some late news, Bill Cosby has been released from prison with the charges overturned on his 2018 conviction. Subscribe and turn notifications on so you can be alerted when new editions drop.

On this new edition of Cory Talks… New South Wales finally admits a lockdown is required, although the message from New South Wales Health and the government is not as clear as other jurisdictions. https://nsw.gov.au/covid-19 The Northern Territory announced today a snap 48-hour lockdown in three areas of the Top End. Victoria cautiously watching NSW but is not currently re-evaluating the already eased restrictions in the garden state. Australia and China have launched complaints with the World Trade Organisation over each other. 5G is not fully rolled out in Australia, but the worlds techies are already striving for 6G supremacy. Back in April I presented a Cory Talks Special on Cryptocurrency where I likened it to the share market. Now a peak central bank is warning over the volatility and the risk of crime in relation to crypto. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-06-24/cryptocurrencies-are-not-good-says-bank-international-settlement/100240296 Australian Supermarket giant, Woolworths caught underpaying staff… again. The apparent suicide death of anti-virus guru, John McAfee. The vipers from the Murdochracy, Murdoch Propaganda Unit, News Corp, whatever you want to call them, will be out for the manufactured blood of Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews who returns to work on Monday after that nasty fall earlier in the year. The likes of Andrew Bolt, Rachael Baxendale, Paul Murray, Sophie Elsworth, Neil Mitchell, Leigh Sales, Tom Elliot and Peta Credlin have been sharpening their claws for their meritless and relentless attacks on the Victorian Premier, together with their collective “gotcha moment” attempts and “what if’s”.

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… This must make all Australian’s angry – surely! Independent journalist Michael West has published a story that confirms that we indeed have a shortage of the Pfizer vaccine and more importantly, why. Read the story for yourself and don’t forget it when it comes time to vote on the Morrison government. https://www.michaelwest.com.au/governments-appalling-error-rejects-offer-of-40-million-pfizer-doses-in-july-2020/ Updates on the COVID-19 situation in Victoria and New South Wales with the latter not fairing so well right now with the Delta variant of great concern. Latest information for these states at https://nsw.gov.au/covid-19, https://coronavirus.vic.gov.au and https://premier.vic.gov.au for the statement on changes to restrictions in Victoria. The red faced man is back leading the federal National Party and as Deputy Prime Minister. The rise, fall and rise of Barnaby Joyce. Where to now with viruses? Scientists are on the job! On IN FOCUS this week, I look at Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme – the NDIS. As it faces cuts, is the scheme doing a good job? The answer is no, according to some. The taboo topic of changing the date of Australia Day is not so the unspoken subject it once was according to the ABC’s Australia Talks 2021 survey. You’re going to love the “and finally” story I have for you today (unless you watch Fox News then you might want to fast forward four and a half minutes). It’s MSNBC’s Joy Reid versus Fox News’ Tucker (facts? What are they?) Carlson.

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… As Victoria gets on top of the COVID outbreak, New South Wales has one of its own. Once again, the NSW government seems a tad slow at getting on to it. Testing needs to improve and mask wearing indoors is only “strongly recommended”. Updates from New South Wales Health – https://health.nsw.gov.au Updated from Victoria – https://coronavirus.vic.gov.au The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will only be administered to Australians over the age of 60 now. However, those under 60 who have already had their first dose of the AZ shot can get their second. I swear we must pay politicians by the word. There were lots of them from Prime Ministers Scott Morrison (Australia) and Boris Johnson (United Kingdom) recently at the G7 meeting in England on the UK/Australia Free Trade agreement. Lots of words, not a whole lot of detail. Western Australian Premier pleads with federal government to let the Muragappan family return to their adopted home of Biloela in Queensland. A McDonald’s data breach, those affected are not “lovin’ that”. Leadership rumbles within the Liberal and National Parties in Victoria and Federally. If after seeing the Friendly Jordies YouTube video entitled, “arrested” which saw (Friendly Jordies) Jordan Shanks’ 21-year-old producer, Kristo Langker arrested on stalking charges and find yourself as angry and disappointed as me, do consider if you can, donating to the fighting fund at www.friendlyjordies.com I end this edition on a cocoa infused high.

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… More restrictions to be lifted in Victoria as the Chief Health Officer, Professor Brett Sutton asks Victorians to continue getting tested over the winter months so we can stay on top of the COVID-19 situation. I did just this as I’d been feeling a little unwell recently. Hear me read the text message with the results of my COVID-19 test from last Sunday. Victoria has also struggled in the past week with wild weather causing flooding in the states east that has seen many Victorians without power for days. With the prospect for some of no power until July 10! Sky News Australia’s prized minister of misinformation, Peta Credlin awarded an Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. New South Wales Deputy Premier John Barilaro has a very thin skin when it comes to comedian and social commentator, Jordan Shanks, known on YouTube as Friendly Jordies. Not only is the politician suing FJ, he’s also had the YouTubers friend and employee, 21 year old independent journalist Kristo Langker arrested and charged in a sequence of events you’d expect from a TV show, or a real life dictatorship incident. The video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXtq4a8829g is very confronting and disturbing. If you can watch it and feel as outraged as many Australians do, consider donating to the fighting fund at https://www.friendlyjordies.com/legal-fund. I’ve done just that! The Federal Government’s billion-dollar robodebt scheme took more than just people’s money, it also took many lives. The courts order the government to repay the money. On In Focus this week, the latest on the Biloela Family asylum seekers bid to remain in Australia. The Prime Minister is adamant that the family’s stay is not permanent. Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews has shown she can be just as uncaring as the Prime Minister. Meantime Morrison is the subject of an ABC-TV Australia 4 Corners report into his association with an Australian QAnon whack-job. A man whose family reported the PM’s friend of many years, to the Terrorist Hotline. After months off work due to a nasty fall, Victorian Premier Dan Andrews is ready to return to work in the next week or so.

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… Victoria continues to move carefully and cautiously back to COVID Normal. A slight change to the COVID regulations announced on the last episode, face masks must continue to be worn outside in Greater Melbourne. In the war of words, facts and taxpayers money, who won? Christian Porter or The Australian Broadcasting Corporation. The answer depends on who you speak to, but it shouldn’t. The controversial upgrade to the Australian War Memorial is to go ahead. Two Victorian’s foolishly went on a trip across three states, infected with COVID-19. Here’s the link to the story where you can follow these two idiots 1,700 kilometre journey from Melbourne to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-06-10/covid-exposure-sites-nsw-qld-cases-victoria-sunshine-coast/100204044 Vladimir Putin takes further steps to silence that thorn in his side, Alexei Navalny. Tax records from some of America’s richest should make you red in the face with disgust and should make the super-rich red in the face from embarrassment. In the first Cory Talks Podcast Recommendation for season four, we look at one of my favourites, The Minds of Madness Podcast hosted by Canadian Tyler Allen. True crime at its devilishly best.

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… COVID-19 restrictions in Victoria to be eased from 11:59 tonight (Thursday 10 June 2021). I’ve got a round up of those details for you in this edition. The statement from acting Victorian Premier James Merlino and full list of changes are available at https://coronavirus.vic.gov.au While Victoria tries to get this more virulent variant under control, Prime Minister Scott Morrison urged the state to follow New South Wales’ lead in ending lockdown as soon as possible. I know this must sound like a joke to some of you, but the PM was serious. Why the blame game in coronavirus doesn’t help. Changes to Australia’s health system, Medicare has many doctors concerned. Claiming election fraud seems to be as catching as COVID-19. The almost decade long struggle for two Sri Lankan Tamil asylum seekers and their Australian born children is heartbreaking to hear about. On In Focus today, the story of Priya and Nades, and their children Kopika and Tharunicaa. They’re better known as the Biloela Family – named after the Queensland town they settled in when seeking asylum from persecution, only to find more of it in Australia thanks to the Morrison government. https://www.change.org/p/scott-morrison-bring-priya-back-to-biloela It’s important that nations around the world know the plight of The Biloela Family as 3 year old Tharunicaa suffers in hospital after being airlifted from their detention on Christmas Island to Perth due to pneumonia and possible septicaemia.

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… A fresh update on the COVID-19 situation in Victoria, Australia and there’s concerns for the Kappa and Delta variants of coronavirus, as Victorian health officials tirelessly investigate each case. Job security can be a concern at the best of times. While the rich get richer, the rest of us continue to make ends meet. With the lockdown in Victoria and people struggling, the federal government was criticised for refusing to help the more vulnerable. When the Prime Minister finally announced assistance, it could be considered more like dangling a piece of cheese from a great height, that no one could reach. In Focus: American Politics – Destination Backwards… at least that’s the way it seems to me. With every positive step forward by a caring and compassionate President like Joe Biden, the Republicans mission seems to be dragging America and Americans backwards. I’d like to hear from my American listeners on their opinion of how America is doing right now. Contact via www.corytalks.com The kiwifruit war being waged. It’s an expensive war.

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… The latest available information on the Victorian COVID-19 circuit breaker lockdown and the changes that happen tonight. Important listening for all Victorian’s. Prime Minister Scott Morrison met New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern for their annual trans Tasman talks. I find it surprising that New Zealand is on Australia’s side in our conflict with China. Sure, China shares some of the blame, but Australia cannot take the moral high ground on our deteriorating relations with China. One of the questions from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Australia Talks” survey asked, is Australia racist. The results might be surprising. Australian rabid Rottweiler (that’s what I think of her), Peta Credlin acts like she’s a journalist, but she’s nothing more than an attention seeker, and her latest stunt is beyond the pale!

Welcome to the Cory Talks Podcast! On this brand-new episode… This is the first episode of season four. In this edition, my conversation with a guy who was trying to get me to believe he works for Amazon Prime. It seems I need to be recording whenever my phone rings with the number of scammers out there. A bit of an update on what’s been happening since the last regular edition of the podcast. Have I got the COVID-19 jab yet… NO. But not because I don’t want to get it. A week long circuit breaker lockdown was announced for Victoria in the last few days. There has been a COVID outbreak in parts of Greater Melbourne, so the government has acted to put a halt to this. Despite a pandemic, many businesses around the world have flourished, including Apple. My home state is targeting Climate Change to make a real difference in the world. Shame that Australia as a country is dragged kicking and screaming. Don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t already and turn notifications on so you can be alerted when there’s new episodes out.
