Geraldine's been focussed on Australia's international diplomacy this week but Eliza's been reading about America.
First it was the surprising midterm election results and then the big correction happening in the tech sector. She thinks that the tech leaders like Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are the 'thought leaders' of this generation because they run media companies where an increasing volume of Australians get their news.
They also discuss Sam Bankman-Fried and his failed crypto exchange FTX.
Also this week, an exploration of whether trauma and infidelity can be passed on through the generations via DNA.
And Eliza's new reading list.
Thanks for listening!
