8. Zero Future Babies?
Play • 18 min

Is no baby at all better than having a ‘zero waste baby’? As she reaches the end of her eco-mum experiment, Veronica Milsom considers the impacts overpopulation is having on the environment. Speaking to Dr Doug Stein, from the American documentary ‘The Vasectomist’, about why he believes giving out vasectomies is the ultimate waste saving measure, leads Veronica and her husband Nick to ask themselves whether or not they should have any more children.

#154: Sex and the City, Bridgerton, 2021 goals
We’re back for another year of Bangin’ On, and with plenty to sink our teeth into. Sex and the City is back too, but in what form and why? Kim and Kanye are reportedly on the rocks; we do what we can with the information at hand. And sea shanties have gone viral on TikTok, which is frankly joyful, but also speaks to a larger instinct towards community. A new year is an opportunity for taking stock and setting some 2021 goals, but how do you do that when there’s so much uncertainty in the world? Zan has some ideas. And Myf has been gorging on the trashy but sumptuous televisual feast that is Bridgerton, while Zan has zipped through the new novel by Elena Ferrante: The Lying Life of Adults.   Show notes:   Sex and the City is back: https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2021/jan/11/sex-and-the-city-to-return-for-new-series-stars-confirm Sea shanties go viral: https://www.vulture.com/2021/01/tiktok-sea-shanties-explained.html 21 Goals to Set in 2021: https://gentwenty.com/goals-to-set-in-2021/ Bridgerton: https://www.netflix.com/au/title/80232398 The Lying Life of Adults: https://www.europaeditions.com/book/9781609455910/the-lying-life-of-adults Email us: Email us: bangon.podcast@abc.net.au   Bang On is produced by Double J.

Trudging towards the end of 2020, Crabb and Sales come together one last time.

Best of 2020
So we’ve taken another trip around the sun, and before we have a short break – I want to leave you with the annual best of buffet, for the Take 5. It’s been a remarkable year for this podcast. When the borders closed, and the tours stopped, we – just like everyone else – had to figure out how to do things differently. What I realised pretty quickly, is that music was central to how we got through… and for many of us, those deep connections in the stories that we tie to songs, got even stronger. A silver lining to 2020 was reaching out beyond the guests I could share a studio with. We spoke to people from all over the world, all walks of life. And got heroes who had been on my bucket list for years, to finally say yes. This year we were also awarded Best Radio Podcast at the Australian Podcast Awards; which I’m hugely proud of. I love the Take 5 and love sharing these conversations with you every week. If this is your first time listening, it’s a bloody good place to start. Over the next little while, we’ll visit some of the best moments...  that mirrored the beauty, the tumult, and the grounding force of music in all our lives. J Walter Negro And The Loose Joints – ‘Shoot The Pump’ (chosen by Fatboy Slim) Prince – 'Let’s Go Crazy' (chosen by Susan Rogers) Christine Anu – 'Island Home' (chosen by Miranda Tapsell) Micko Donovan - 'Promised Land' (chosen by Emma Donovan) Elvis Costello - 'Shipbuilding' (chosen by Peter Garrett) Midnight Oil – 'Beds are Burning' (chosen by Daniel Levitin) Gloria Gaynor – 'I Will Survive' (chosen by Kylie Minogue) Joe Smooth - ‘Promised Land’ (chosen by Bernard Sumner) The Stooges - ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ (chosen by Roisin Murphy) Nina Simone – 'Mississippi Goddamn' (chosen by Tori Amos)

The Final Meltdown
Hands up who wants to hurriedly push 2020 out the door like it's some long lost Uncle who gatecrashed your Christmas party, insulted and traumatised your guests, and sneezed all over your food. We're gonna assume most of you raised your hands so fast that you pretty much punched the sky in your haste to confirm that we is all well and truly done with this dumpster fire of a year. As this will be our final episode of Emsolation for the year, Em and Michael have a bunch of stuff they wanna work through before they bid you bye bye. First up, they'll tackle the backlash Lizzo is receiving for promoting a 10 day smoothie detox that she's just completed on Instagram. Em and Michael also wanna talk about how the debut novel from a new feminist author called Florence Given, has been completely derailed, after a one time friend of Florence accused her of ripping off Black women's work for her book 'Women Don't Owe You Pretty'. Then it's time to grab a large popcorn, a choc top and a stupidly large fizzy drink, and settle into your recliner for the greatest story ever told. Em is ready for the tea to be spilled as she runs us through what she's calling 'The Final Meltdown'. This ain't no movie, it's not a musical, a book, or even a song, although it probably could be turned into all of those things, nope 'The Final Meltdown' is what Em is calling what went down when the whole year just came up and hit her in the face during her family beach holiday. Basically, Em just let her family know ALL the things they'd done during the year, that made her feel unappreciated. Em is describing it as The Greatest Tale that she's ever told, she even likens herself to being a Slow Cooker. Finally, we wrap things up on some fun, with a Michael Lucas Madonna quiz, which we're pretty much doing just so we can really illustrate how deep Michael's complete obsession for Madge is. We also wanna thank everyone for coming along on this hilariously hectic and glitter stuffed ride, we promise there's more of that to come in 2021 and we're sending podcast hugs to you and yours.
