Part way through episode 2 and holy fuck! They are not pulling any punches.

I'm at about the same point you are (but thinking of taking a break and nipping out for a six pack because this.... this is amazing.)

God, Ben Cohen is thick. Keep doing media Ben!

Ugh, and of course he's "on a surrogacy journey" in episode 6. Perhaps he can find a nice TIM to gestate the baby for him!

He also can't accept the idea that the overwhelming majority women object to the removal of the word "mother". This scrote actually wants polling on that on that question. If only he knew someone who ran a press organization that could carry out such a poll 🙄

And I absolutely agree he should do more interviews. I wholeheartedly support his work as PinkNews's spokesmoron.

I can't believe it took Owen Hurcum (that NB mayor) 13 mins to mention the suicide risk for Trans/NB people. A whole 13 minutes into the episode (ep 4) before he managed to shoe horn it in

Episode 3 goes into self-ID and Wi Spa.

Edit: OMG the CEO of PinkNews is either a terrible liar or a total moron. Perhaps both? Dude can't even define the Two-Spirit/genderqueer bullshit his publication pushes. He can't directly answer questions.

Rosie Duffield answers questions directly and intelligently. It's quite the contrast.

He should just say the truth. It's bullshit, appropriation and racism but they don't care who they steal from because they don't give a fuck about Indigenous people's.

Anyone know how to access from the US?

FWIW Episodes 4 and 8 are just empty files. They click at the beginning but have no actual sound after that.

Unfortunately they don’t seem to play beyond the 8 minute mark.

Try reloading. I just tested it and I can access all of the first episode.

Edit: it looks like the Google Drive player just sucks. Try downloading them all in a Zip file.

Edit 2: The Revenge: Episode 4 doesn't work after downloading the Zip. I probably would have cussed up a storm and scared my cats if I had to listen to a bunch of "non-binary" bullshit anyway. As a general rule you should listen to these podcasts when you can handle being pissed off. The interviewers do an incredible job but the subject matter will make you rage. Don't put these on when you're operating a vehicle.

That's strange, it's working for me. Try making a copy to your Google drive?

Edit: actually scratch that, VPN doesn't work for BBC it seems.

[–] bluestocking 1 points (+1|-0) Edited

I was able to get it working on my VPN, but you have to register and log in to the BBC site to access it.

Yeah I did make a BBC account, that's what makes it even more frustrating haha. Do you happen to have one of those nice VPNs that can play netflix and the like? I'm just on a crappy free one.

I have the "BBC Sounds" app on my phone, so I'm going to start listening to the program tonight. I just checked and it looks like everything is there.

ETA - it's not available just yet, but programs usually become available very quickly.

I successfully used a VPN and listened directly from the BBC sounds app.

So this investigation is the reason that both Ofcom & BBC left the stonewall schemes over the summer.... Amazing work for Nolan's team!

Reckon so. Amazing though that they signed Non Disclosure Agreements for a service that they were paying for. Cult meets scam.

Pretty hilarious that the editor of Pink News cant define "2 spirit" "genderqueer" and so on.

Just goes to show without using the common enemy of "women" their whole movement is just blowing smoke up each other's backside.

Can someone please summarize for those of us who can't access BBC?

There's 350 minutes of this series in total. Would be hard to do in a comment.
