#98: Jacinda’s Leadership, Janet’s Glasto, Car Koala

Myf and Zan find strength in the compassion and empathy of Jacinda Ardern, and reflect on how differently Australian politicians and media reacted to the Christchurch terrorist attack. Egg Boy has been a beacon of hope in a dark week, but has the focus on him come at the expense of a much harder conversation? Meanwhile Glastonbury has been announced and Janet Jackson has gone the ol’ cut and paste on the poster, and the sweet relief of good news has come in the form of a hitchhiking koala.
