The Iron Fist and The Velvet Glove is a weekly podcast which takes a look at news, political events, culture, ethics and the transformations taking place in our society. We try to look at news events and examine whether they are good or bad, whether they are part of a larger trend, what social forces are at work and what are the implications for our future. A typical episode is an eclectic mix of serious ideas and amusing stories. We might well be cataloguing the demise of civilisation but we try to have fun while doing so. We are Australian so we include a lot of Australian stories but Australia is a small fish in a big pond and we consequently look at a lot of international events which are relevant to everyone. We hope you enjoy the podcast.

Customer Reviews

Australian and Secular

These guys are great. A thought provoking look at Australian news with a heavy emphasis on bagging religious privilege.

Plotting the downfall of religion.

A great summary of weekly news in Australia. The Iron Fist sticks it to religion whenever he can and I love it. Keep up the good work boys.

Well done guys

These blokes have "hit the nail on the head" it's a great podcast and definitely worth for while listening in.
