Don't mind if they gave Ivan a chance, I prefer a 3rd voice to correct Don and Sam or pull them up on a topic they have no clue about.

Did Sam really say that hospitals are not taking in people who are unvaccinated.

Some of the things he is saying these days concerning Covid is a worry.

Not gunna lie to you, but I hope that is a policy.
Their choice to not get it, no problem.
But they shouldn’t be tying up the medical care when they eventually succumb to it. That’s not fair.

It's bullshit, hospitals are an essential service, they have to accept whether vaxed or not.
If supermarkets and banks can't refuse, then hospitals can't

I agree but I know I'm a hypocrite as a long-term smoker who had outstanding and lifesaving treatment at a public hospital.
People like Sam Newman will never get it. One analogy for Covid vaccinations might be seatbelts; they don't save every life so what's the point of wearing them? Do your own research :rolleyes:

And George Calombaris, another quality guest. Garbage human who went to the same garbage school I did.

Didn't know him, different year. But it wouldn't surprise me. I went to school with many sons of Italian and Greek immigrants; most were okay but some were real dog turds.

I do wonder though how many more reputable guests turn down the offer to be on the podcast. How many of Sam's ex-colleagues or Don's ex-teammates have ever been on?

The podcast is poorer for Rocket's absence. Never thought I'd say this but I wanna hear more from Ivan Milat :D

Listened to the George calombaris part and was expecting him to be a little contrite.

Got about 25 minutes in. What a garbage human being as mentioned above. That these people think they are "helping people by underpaying them so they have a job" shows how much Australia has changed. Glad he is out of business and hopefully he never gets another chance to run a business cause he will do the same thing again.

Listened to the time he punched a 19 year old kid at the soccer. Said he got off - he plead guilty and had a recorded conviction.

Haven’t gotten to that bit yet. I doubt hospitals are rejecting unvaxxed. They may give preference to vaccinated perhaps. Dunno. M
I also don’t know if Sam is deadly serious with the negative slant on covid and vaccinations and doubts as suggested. I’ve said before he said he’s not anti vax but isn’t forthcoming with his vax status- that he’s been jabbed. Not sure it’s a privacy matter, but more to keep sections of the community onside so to speak.

These guys have to stop interviewing muppets like Stevens and Calombaris. I know they think they may be trying to balance the ledger by giving both sides but these 2 were convicted of crimes of violence and deception. This is ruining the podcast we fell in love with tbh

There is no way a hospital would turn away a patient whether they are vaccinated or not.

You see a bit in the press with a lot of the stats around who is in ICU with Covid split between vaccinated and unvaccinated with the majority being unvaccinated.

They're not really trying to get sponsors are they? The whole premise of the show is they can say what they want because they are beholden to any networks or sponsors

Ben Fordham is another motormouth from Sydney radio, but there is something likeable about him based on his banter in the podcast. Never listened to his radio show though - he took over from Alan Jones didn't he - is he just as conservative on air?

I like Fordham. Havent heard him on sydney radio, but from information gathered he took over from alan jones. hes a really likeable character. Has done well for himself, i think his fame took off when he was on channel 9 and the today show. a great platform for lauching a career as the lovable young male. Always smiling, there to pick up. the moods of viewers etc.

I love the diversity of guest. Ya don't have to like them, but it's interesting to hear their side of it and then pass judgement, rather than listening to one-sided commentary from the corporate media. And Sam and Don are great interviewers.

George was scathing about Julia Gillard bringing in penalty rate laws for small businesses and Hospitality a decade ago. I've worked in Hospitality most my life and I find it hard to believe he was ignorant of not paying correctly. The industry is full of dodgy business owners.

Fordham is very bloody entertaining. He does stitch Don up, constantly, but he does it in a gentle way. The running joke of his wife not listening is very amusing.

I believe he knew what he was doing, he has/had a bunch of restaurants, what's the issue? Simply put, if you don't want to pay the rates, don't open on those days. The "reason" why rates are high is because they substitute not having leave entitlements by paying penalty rates.

I once frequented a cafe, one day that upped the coffee on Saturdays by 20 cents on Saturday and 50 cents on Sundays, I'd assume to help subsidize the rates. I never went back after that, it's not the cost, it's the principal.

He's a slime ball, he mentioned that some kid didn't want to be paid x amount on Sundays, just wanted to work because that was the only day he could. Due to the fact he had a limited ability he wasn't rostered to work those shifts that required the rates. When he said he doesn't care he will work for x amount, George quickly changed his opinion.

He ******* knew what went on, don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.
