G’day, you mob! Let’s welcome back Kyrin Down on the podcast!

In this third installment of the 4-part interview session I had with Mere Mortals’ host Kyrin Down, we chat about what we think of the British royal family and royalty more broadly as an institution.

We talk about why some Australians love the royal family, the Australian royalists, where some Aussies absolutely hate them. Or, you know, at the very least, have no interest at all in the royal family.

We talk about unearned fame, the Paris Hilton types versus, say, celebrities or rich people who’ve earnt it.

We talk about corrupt countries and their governments, as well as benevolent leaders who take control of the government and then give it back for the good of the country.

And then lastly, we talk about why governments of countries like the UK, USA and Australia seemingly are so much less corrupt than countries in places like Asia or Central and South America.

We’re all the same people and it’s just a different part of the world, why aren’t we all exactly the same government with exactly the same system and the exact same amount of corruption?
