Just for a change of pace, we're talking about THE OTHER MAGA-hat-wearing, Covid-denying conspiracy-theorist, social-media-loving, mainstream-media-hating former reality TV star: Australia's own Pete Evans. The celebrity chef turned conspiracy theorist hit a shocking new low this week when he shared a cartoon depicting the sonnenrad – black sun – a sun wheel design that first originated in Nazi Germany, and widely employed by neo-Nazis, white supremacists and alt-right fascists now – including the Christchurch gunman, the Australian citizen who murdered 51 people in two mosques in 2019. What happened next and why shouldn't we be relaxed about this? BW and BL discuss. Step inside Aunty Donna's Big Ol' House of Fun with Broden Kelly and Mark Samual Bonanno. Two members of Melbourne's Aunty Donna Sketch comedy troupe talk to BW about the evolution of their comedy, making it big on Netflix, the joys and trials of absurdist comedy and the origin story of Aunty Donna. show notes: Pete Evans is dropped from I'm a Celebrity https://www.sbs.com.au/news/the-feed/pete-evans-will-not-appear-on-i-m-a-celebrity-as-more-companies-cut-ties-with-the-chef Pete Evans on Germany's history- Twitter https://twitter.com/cameronwilson/status/1328585401737601025 Dolly Parton's supporting Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Culture/dolly-partons-vanderbilt-donation-supported-modernas-covid-19/story?id=74255411 Review of Australian comedy group's new show Aunty Donna's Big Ol' house of Fun https://www.smh.com.au/culture/tv-and-radio/all-hail-the-divine-madness-of-australian-comedy-trio-aunty-donna-20201109-p56csy.html
