It’s the Yeah… Nah! Podcast, COVID Edition, as Mark joins us from home lockdown. Or should we say Markdown? No? Nevermind…

The Occupation of Parliament is the gift that keeps on giving, as your dedicated podcasters take in the ongoing aftermath with updates on the sovereign citizen sheriffs at an ANZAC day ceremony, former MPs being trespassed from parliament, and Jeanette Wilson’s lack of progress with her police complaint. Mark discusses a recent Broadcasting Standards Authority decision on an NZDSOS complaint about Nikki Turner’s segment on Seven Sharp. Bronwyn gives a heads up on a conspiracy theory that attempts to link the recent outbreak of acute paediatric hepatitis with the COVID-19 vaccine, and shares a true crime tidbit with an NZ connection that she came across while working on the 365 Days of Skepticism calendar. The show finishes with recommendations of two docuseries that will pique the interest of many listeners: Hillsong: A Megachurch Exposed and new episodes available for The Way Down, about the late Gwen Shamblin, founder of cultish Christian group The Remnant Fellowship and its Weigh Down Workshop.
