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.

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.

On this edition of the podcast, Cory Talks: It’s Personal. This is quite a different podcast episode. For a while the previous special, Season 3, Episode 16 was likely the last of this season.

On this edition of the podcast, Cory Talks Aussieland Stars from Hollywood have been moving to Australia to escape COVID-19. Most are here for work – which is fine, but what about those who are trying to dodge the pandemic as much as they can, and meantime thousands of Australian citizens have been struggling for many months to just get a flight home from where they are currently. It's not just the amount of flights, but also the exorbitant price of flights. At the height of the pandemic in 2020, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison made a vow to get all Aussies who wanted to come home, back by Christmas. I guess in the deflecting detail PM’s defence, he didn’t say which Christmas. While no direct fault of their own, will these celebrities and their film projects suffer in Australia, because Australian audiences may see the stars as queue jumpers? I reference this story from BBC News which was published on 3 April 2021. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-55851074 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.

On this edition of Cory Talks… Cryptocurrency For quite some time I’ve wondered about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general. So I decided to do some research and I was amazed by a number of facts, including that there were more cryptocurrencies in the world than there are traditional currencies. Take a trip into the past and the beginning on cryptocurrency, what is it, what can you use it for, where’s it going and is it safe? Sources of information I’ve used in this special edition of the podcast are as follows… https://www.cmcmarkets.com/en-au/learn-cryptocurrencies/what-are-cryptocurrencies https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptocurrency https://www.trtworld.com/magazine/what-can-you-buy-with-bitcoin-44409 https://www.kaspersky.com/resource-center/definitions/what-is-cryptocurrency https://www.investopedia.com/tech/most-important-cryptocurrencies-other-than-bitcoin/ 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.

On this edition of Cory Talks… Scams Recently I’ve been followed by someone on Twitter who comes from The Gambia in Africa. I believe his reason for following me was to scam me out of money. If this is true, then I could see he was playing the long game, as he started following me more than a month ago and it’s only just prior to recording this special edition of the podcast that the hand came out for money. Since recording this episode, now two others had started following me, all from The Gambia. I’m guessing since the first attempt to scam me didn’t work, they’re thinking try, try again!

On this edition of Cory Talks… Daylight Savings What is it, why do we have it? It surprised me that there were only a few territories around the world that have never used daylight savings and equally as surprising for me, a great number that have experienced Daylight Savings Time and said, no thanks – I’ll be fine. Personally I don’t blame them. I need to say over and over and over again, “spring forward, fall back” as a way of remembering which way to turn the clocks when Daylight Savings Time comes, and goes just as it did early this morning in many parts of Australia.

On this edition of Cory Talks… The state of Victoria has been declared virus free. And with that wonderful news comes sweeping changes to COVID-19 restrictions in the garden state. Hear from Victoria’s Chief Health Officer, Professor Brett Sutton on the great work all Victorian’s have achieved. The Chamber of Commerce thinks the restrictions being lifted from tonight (Friday 26 March 2021, 6:00pm) do not go far enough. Hopefully more Victorian’s can be vaccinated with the approval of 800,000 doses of locally produced AstraZeneca vaccine. My worry is (apart from when will actually get the jab), is the increased talk of opening up Australia’s borders and the potential risk of another lcokdown.

On this edition of Cory Talks… After last Monday’s March4Justice rallies across Australia, the Prime Minister… Scott Morrison made a tactical error. He opened his fat entitled mouth and effective said women in Australia should be thankful that they can protest in this country without being shot. #AusGovFail Last week Australian Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton called the deportation of New Zealanders as, taking out the trash. This week it’s about the Australian government sending a 15 year old back to New Zealand alone, a place he barely knows. Australia is an equal opportunity hater. It doesn’t matter whether you’re Australian or from another country. #AusGovFail The Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine rollout is resuming in Europe after no proof could be found that the COVID-19 vaccine causes blood clots. Great news for Australian’s, if only the Federal government could pull its finger out and get the jab for Australian’s. The second phase of the immunisation programme began today (Monday 22 March 2021) with an abysmal number of Australian’s vaccinated as part of the first phase which began just over a month ago. #AusGovFail Maybe it should be called QANTAS Aid, the amount of money the Federal government keeps throwing at the national airline. #AusGovFail Canada’s Conservative Party is moving on a platform that the climate crisis does not exist. Just what this world needs, more old white men (not always old, white or men), sticking their selfish heads in the sand. Some good news this week, the regional television network here in Australia, WIN has decided to dump the waste of airtime known as Sky After Dark on Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News Australia. Personal security when we’re out and about is something we should all be looking in to. After the horrific kidnapping and murder of a British woman walking home recently, social media has been awash with tips and tricks on your smartphone helping you stay safe and trackable in an emergency. Read the tips here from the BBC News Online webpage on this story: https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56373292 ABC Radio Melbourne journalist and host, Virginia Trioli has written an interesting opinion piece on ABC News Australia online, comparing the differences between struggling Australian’s and the man who is thankful of the pandemic for the amount of money he’s made. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-03-20/what-does-centrelink-recipient-have-common-gerry-harvey/13257024 Alarming details of young terrorist in Melbourne. Thankfully Victoria Police have made arrests and there is no known current threat. JobKeeper to go in Australia in a little over a week’s time. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said it was time to go. I agree whole heartedly… except I agree that it’s time for him to go. #AusGovFail *** IMPORTANT NOTICE *** This is the final episode of season three of the podcast, but also the final episode for the moment. I’m looking at doing some special episodes on a specific topic in the coming months. Whether the Cory Talks podcast returns in regular weekly episodes and what format that would take, is still being considered. The best thing to do is to stay subscribed on your podcast platform of choice and ensure you have the website bookmarked – cory.media/corytalks Thank you so much for listening to the last three seasons and a particularly big thanks to those who have listened to the podcast on YouTube. I did some counting mid last week and was blown away by the fact since launching the podcast in May 2020, I’ve had a little over 300 plays of Cory Talks on YouTube. I certainly did not expect that. I appreciate your support of the show.

On this edition of Cory Talks… I’m truly sorry if the stories of rape allegations in the Australian political sphere at the moment is disturbing, but we are not going to be able to fix the problem if we sweep it under the carpet. Canberra rape claimant Brittany Higgins has a win in court of defamatory comments by Defence Minister Senator Linda Reynolds. The money will go to help survivors of rape and abuse in the Canberra area. Today, Monday 15 March 2021 is the day of #March4Justice. Time for you, me and government to listen! The COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Australia is a national embarrassment. Surely not all adult Australian’s who wish to be vaccinated, will be by October as the Morrison government claims. European Countries stop the use of the AstraZeneca COVID vaccine temporarily while they investigate if there is a link to the vaccine and blood clots. Australia plans to keep using this vaccine. The AstraZeneca jab is the one most Australian’s will receive. Western Australian’s went to polls on Saturday. Was there really a doubt of who would win. The people have spoken in the west. Let’s hope Canberra is listening with increasing talk of an early federal election before 2022. Australia’s Mr Potato Head, Peter Dutton in a Trans Tasman stoush. Aren’t we lucky Home Affairs Minister Dutton isn’t Prime Minister… well not yet anyway. Former Liberal Party Australia government Foreign Minister Julie Bishop confirms there’s a boys club in Canberra. That Oprah interview with Harry and Meagan. Even the Queen has weighed in on the matter. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews had a nasty fall last week. He cracked some ribs and did some damage to his vertebrae. A CEO of a law firm loses her job after been kept in the dark about the firm taking on the case of alleged rapist, Commonwealth Attorney General, Christian Porter. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in his own words… no wonder Australian women are so angry. I’m angry too! Federal Government coughs up funds to finance cheap flights at targeted locations around Australia. With the vaccination of Australian’s way behind, is this really the best time to be flying interstate for a holiday? And if the Morrison wants things back to normal, and people back at work – how can they do their job and take a break at the same time? Sounds like desperation from the government.

On this edition of Cory Talks… It’s a sh*t show in Canberra at the moment. You’d be hard pressed to find an adult Australian who is not aware of the truly disturbing rape allegations in the nation’s capital and a claim of a historical rape involving a very senior Australian government minister and Senator. The Federal Government has a completely different stance on how to proceed (quite simply, closing the case). But Australian’s are angry and upset… and rightly so. I’ll present a timeline of events as they’ve happened since the last podcast. There will be #March4Justice protest rallies around the country including at Parliament House Canberra on Monday 15th March at noon. Two Royal Commissions came to an end this past week. A federal one into the Aged Care sector. One state RC into the Mental Health system in Victoria. Making the announcements, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews. Spot the difference between these leaders. One admitted fault, accepted recommendations and promised change. The other flew into defensive mode. Australian Senator calls a former staffer a lying cow after making rape allegations. Triple earthquake off New Zealand and resulting tsunami alert. Blowout in the cost of Australia’s digital future, the National Broadband Network. It could have cost a whole lot less if politics was not involved. Western Australia joins Victoria in launching a Royal Commission into Crown Resorts and Casino after a damning report in New South Wales banned Crown from opening a casino in that state. Australian music industry legend and founder of Mushroom Records, Michael Gudinski has passed away. The Queen’s video chat to Australia. Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2021 is given the thumbs up despite operating in a COVID safe environment with social distancing. Trump 2024… please tell me it’s not true!!! Kayleigh McEnany, the former White House Press Secretary joins Fox News to the amazement of no one. Dolly Parton in fine voice as she prepared to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

On this edition of Cory Talks… That circuit breaker COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria recently has done the trick it seems, with further restrictions being lifted over the past weekend. Meanwhile Queensland has opened up its metaphorical arms to Greater Melbourne, lifting travel restrictions. I will not be reporting on the now growing list of rape allegations out of Australia’s capital. I’ve stated my reasons on my “Use Your Words” blog and also a rather lengthy response in the opening of this episode. You can find the blog post at https://cory.media/2021/02/23/capital-crime/ Australian government COVID-19 conspiracy theorist Craig Kelly has quit his party, almost guaranteeing that he’ll be even more of a nuisance to the Liberal Party than before. The JobSeeker unemployment benefits base rate will go up $25 a week from next month. But the $75 a week coronavirus supplement will disappear. Not exactly a good time to be persecuted by the Morrison government. But dividing the nation is what they do best. Evil old business tyrant (no not Rupert Murdoch this time), Gerry Harvey who controls the Harvey Norman department stores in Australia and New Zealand has decided NOT to give back the $22 million it accepted from the Federal Government in the form of JobKeeper to keep staff on during the pandemic. This is despite make huge profits in 2021. #BoycottHarveyNorman Facebook refriended Australia after the Morrison government which was not going to cave on their proposed media bargaining legislation. Well… they caved slightly and came to an agreement with Facebook. However the social media behemoth reserves the right to ban news being served up on its platform in Australia in the future. My opinion – neither side is looking out for Australia or journalism. When the going gets tough, Republican nitwit Ted Cruz gets going… to Cancun. I don’t think America can survive yet another selfish power hungry cretin in politics. Speaking of selfish power hungry cretins, Trump’s tax returns have finally been released. Hopefully in time to lock up the Orange Idiot. Speaking or right wing troublemakers, Australia has a real problem with extremism. If only we didn’t have a extreme right federal government, the country might be able to tackle the problem. UK court tells Uber it has employees, not contract workers. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews threatens to tear up Crown Casino’s license to operate in the state if the recently called Royal Commission into the gambling industry in Victoria deems it necessary. Oil refinery to pivot into the future… better late than never. Tech news on Twitter and Bitcoin. And whatever you do, don’t call him Mr Potato Head. (For Australian listeners, no I’m not talking about Home Affairs Minister and man who should be mashed, Peter Dutton).

On this edition of Cory Talks… Rape allegations by two former Liberal Party staffers at Australian Parliament House levelled against one former male staffer. What did the Prime Minister Scott Morrison know and when did he know it? His words do not feel believable and if you believe the screenshot of a text message, the Prime Ministers Office knew about one of the allegations for a greater length of time than it has admitted. The COVID-19 vaccine programme is finally rolling out in Australia. The Federal Government says all Aussies who wish to be vaccinated, should be by October. The snap five day lockdown in Victoria was just that – thankfully! This was due to concerns about the more virulent strain of the COVID-19 virus, the UK strain. Now the state is looking to further easing of coronavirus restrictions this week. Western Australian election in less than three weeks time and if you believe Newspoll, the Labor Party under Premier Mark McGowan looks to a massive win. My take on this whole Facebook banning news in Australia thing. I don’t think either of the two (or is that three) players have the upper hand. I think in the end it’s Australian’s who will pay some sort of price for this political point scoring exercise. New silly fad on TikTok. Parler back from the wilderness. For them it’s been a long month. But if you’re new to the unfiltered platform, you might find it hard to join. US President Joe Biden plans to get tough on guns. Good luck Joe when America has such an obsession with guns! (Hey, don’t shoot the messenger). Harry and Meagan are officially out of The Firm. I am in no way interested in Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, so don’t bother expecting me to mention these media whores on the podcast. More meat for cats. Coke in paper bottles.

On this edition of Cory Talks… Victoria enters a five-day lockdown to tackle an outbreak of the more virulent UK strain of COVID-19. Greek tennis player departs Australia for South Africa and tests positive for coronavirus upon arrival. Former US President is acquitted for the second time. The voting was ten votes short of convicting Trump for Incitement for Insurrection. Trump vows to continue his fight. Free National Broadband Network upgrades to select Australian locations. Will it actually help. Google launches its News Showcase platform in Australia to try and circumvent government proposal to make Google and Facebook pay for news content they feature. I mention Superbowl LV… don’t expect much more than that! A tennis player at the Australian Open just wanted to pee! Why was the umpire hesitant? Investigations into former Australian Sports Minister, Bridget McKenzie as she faces the Sports Rorts Inquiry. Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton is also being looked at for his interference in grants process. New Zealand rolls out the COVID-19 vaccine. So much for Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s claim that Australian’s would be one of the first nations in the world to get the jab. More marketing lies from the King of Promo. A South Australian Koala seems unperturbed by a busy road. The United Arab Emirates looks to Mars for colonisation in the next century.

On this edition of Cory Talks… Today (Monday 8 February 2021) was supposed to mark the date that 75% of the Victorian workforce could return to the office, but that was paused thanks to a coronavirus concern related to the UK variant. Anti-conversion law introduced in Victoria, and it’s about time. An Aussie doctor working in the Austrian Alps got the COVID-19 jab and has written a story for ABC News Australia on her friend who she loves dearly, but is an anti-vaxxer. After listening to this episode of the show, come back here and click on this link https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-04/vaccine-message-to-anti-vaxxers/13114344?utm_source=abc_news_web&utm_medium=content_shared&utm_content=mail&utm_campaign=abc_news_webto read Rebecca Schoepf’s opinion piece. Alexei Navalny is quite a headache for the Russian establishment. The US President and the technology impediment. Spotify to suggest mood music for you. How do you feel about that? Back from the dead, a social media platform that was apparently a hit here in Australia. I completely missed that! Parler’s hypocrisy as it remains offline, despite a legal bid to make Amazon put the platform back up. As the release of the COVID-19 vaccine draws closer in Australia, many are wondering when they’ll get the jab. While not set in stone, ABC News Australia has put together a little checklist that might give you an insight into the timeframe. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-05/when-will-you-get-the-covid-19-vaccine/13112610 Being over 100 years old doesn’t mean you can’t become TikTok famous.

On this edition of Cory Talks... The last time I'm going to talk about Australia Day (Invasion Day) this year, I promise. Australian Open heating up for the February 8 start, and I'm talking about the exerted ranting of one American tennis player and his first world problem. Australian Chemists/Pharmacies able to sign up from today (Monday 1 February 2021) to become COVID-19 vaccination points. The European Union being heavy handed on limiting to quantity of inoculations to non-EU countries. It may have an impact on Australia's expected vaccine supplies. GameStop... something that I'd never heard of before has been in the news this past week and Wall Street was not amused. The tax office in Australia is investigating the rorting of the federal government's JobKeeper programme. Intimate contact hotel quarantine breach in New Zealand. NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was not happy that Australia abruptly halted the Trans Tasman Travel Bubble. New Aussie Trade Minister given the cold shoulder by China. @MarieWalsh18 on Twitter brought some memes to my attention last week in relation to what the Morrison Government has been up to. It may make you as mad as I was. Then again, maybe not if you're so easily taken my Murdoch media propaganda. And paying with your face!
