We woke to a Facebook devoid of Australian news content, and so much more. Myf and Zan talk about how the social media giant is playing poker with the Australian government and frustrating it’s millions of local users and communities. Brittany Higgins’ allegations of rape within Parliament House have caused shockwaves across the country, and differing responses from our leaders. How do we value the women in our lives? And Justin Timberlake has publicly apologised to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson, following the airing of Framing Britney Spears. Meanwhile, a long read on if and how TikTok is flattening music has Zan jazzed, while Myf is looking to the future with other trends on the horizon. And yes, we’re celebrating the first denim fashion YES we’ve witnessed in months, after being bombarded by every Bang Fam member, while banging on about TV show Lupin, and podcast Tough Love.
