episode 123, I understand what it's like to live on centerlink, I get a disability payment, it barely covers living costs, everything goes up, but the payment dosen't, would love to work, but it's hard when you're legally blind.

I listened to this with an open mind, however got no new answers. 'Shame, shame' is valid.

Major issue with the current news segment that's spliced in - I was listening the other week and without warning, and only a single day after the episode's release, there was explicit Game of Thrones spoiler. It might not matter to some but when someone is listening to an episode recorded in February there shouldn't be a current-time spoiler just added in without concern for listeners. Thanks for spoiling the Night King for me and no doubt others.

i wish your news section was not a 'smart' podcast because if we don't download each episode everyday day, wgen we catch up on the ones we missed, we then have to listen to the same news over and over.. its quite frustrating. plus I would rather catch up on old news that I missed!

why do some of the episodes of the quicky have the news headlines while others don't?
