Been to university? Student debt making you sweat? In 2017, the Australian government decided to cut university funding (again!) Debts will also have to be repaid sooner. But where are the full-time jobs?

Wages aren't growing, houses aren't affordable and most of our parents didn't even pay for university! Come on a BONUS BINGE with Sophie Johnston. The sprightly 21 year old is president of Australia's National Union of Students and she is fighting for your right to party. Produced by Nina Roxburgh with music by Big Gigantic.

Episode 9: Business and Ethics with Dan Barwick

Hello Good People of Binge Thinking! 

In our latest episode, Caspar brings you the Binge Thinking of 30 year-old engineer and small business owner Dan Barwick. You might not think you can run a business, but Dan explains how getting sick of working for out of touch boomers inspired him to work for himself, make some serious coin, and reshape his own sense of self. With his company Hydraulic Testing and Certification (HTC), Dan talks innovation and creativity even in the drier of topics, you'll be hooked on his every word. 

Dan and Caspar also got deep and binged on growing up in a religious family, the wonders of the internet and connected nature of the world as we know it, the future of capitalism, what it means to be human, and the idea of AI. It's a long episode, but we think it's totally worth it!

Episode 3: Climate Change Activism with Nick Carter

It's been hot in Brisbane recently, a little too hot! Forget the Hottest 100, 2016 was the third year in a row claiming 'hottest year ever'. In this episode, Caspar got cooked binge thinking with Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) activist and all around good-guy Nick Carter. Nick schooled Caspar in all things climate change in Australia including details of specific campaigns underway, the moral case for action, why our politicians suck at this and how we can understand why baby boomers love their coal. You can check out the AYCC on the web, Facebook, Instagram (@ayccqld) and Twitter (@aycc.qld).
