Open thread for episode #943: Russell and Lynnea

I wish to offer a correction: During the show a caller named Jason claimed that burqas are banned in Australia. We were not able to fact check this claim while doing a live show, but accepted it at face value. As numerous people have now pointed out, there is no such law, although a rule was briefly instituted which prevented people from wearing burqas in parliament. The rule was quickly overturned. We regret the error.
