In a week where:

  1. Turkey & Greece are the latest countries to suffer wildfires.
  2. Amazon is dealt a $888 Million EU fine for a data privacy breach.
  3. Latin is going to be taught in English State Schools.
  4. DaBaby is taken off several festival line-ups after homophobic comments & two apologies.
  5. China is starting to have another COVID outbreak.

In Sports: (10:59) The Olympics are in it's final days and as we know, Tokyo is going to economically crater after the Games are done, but can the Olympics be done at a more logical cost?

In the 1st of two Life segments: (25:01) Several news orgs around the world have been reporting on a privately sold spyware called "Pegasus" that have been used by governments. So what is it? And should the regular person be worried?

In the 2nd Life segment: (38:08) It's well known that there are hair products explicitly marketed to black women. But campaigners & research are now pointing towards 'lye' as a potential reason for why black women suffer health complications at a higher rate compared to white women.

Lastly, in Film/TV: (52:18) With the hype around "Dune" starting to build, Jason Momoa has said that we should see the '4-6 hour' cut of it. I don't. But if you feel like that is what should be shown and you don't want to bill it as a TV show, I have a solution that'll make everyone happy.

Thank you for listening! If you want to contribute to the show, whether it be sending me questions or voicing your opinion in any way, peep the contact links below and I'll respond accordingly. Let me know "What's Good?"
