THE SOCIAL CONTRACT podcast is for political junkies who might have forgotten just how fun (and often comical) politics and Washington's political figures can be. The podcast was created as a companion piece of sorts to George S. Corey’s book, Presidential Conversations, which was inspired by and features original illustrations by the artist CLEO. CLEO’s work will accompany all of our podcast episodes. But you don’t need to be familiar with the book to thoroughly enjoy THE SOCIAL CONTRACT po ...
 
The Social Contract outlines Rousseau’s views on political justice, explaining how a just and legitimate state is to be founded, organized and administered. Rousseau sets forth, in his characteristically brazen and iconoclastic manner, the case for direct democracy, while simultaneously casting every other form of government as illegitimate and tantamount to slavery. Often hailed as a revolutionary document which sparked the French Revolution, The Social Contract serves both to inculcate dis ...
 
'The New Social Contract' is a podcast that seeks to contribute to a national conversation on how the relationship between universities, the state and the public might be reshaped as we live through the COVID-19 pandemic. Universities have existed for close to a thousand years. Across the centuries they have been places for making sense of the world and for shaping it. But under the pressures of war, political, social and economic demands, these institutions have often been remade. Join us a ...

Today we bring you the remarkably inventive -- and remarkably prescient -- story from author George S. Corey. Waiting for Our Vote is presented as a play -- yes, an actual play -- in two acts. It is, of course, a satiric, and I think ultimately deeply moving, reflection on voting rights, set on Election Day, 2022, and features Presidents Lincoln an…
 
We’re kicking off our two-part Election Series with this episode: a tribute to the late, great United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsgurg — or “The Notorious R.B.G.,” as she’s been nicknamed. It's called Vote Ruthlessly! and was conceived and inspired by CLEO, and written by George, as a tribute to Justice Ginsburg, shortly after her d…
 
Continuing with our Summer Series, Some Like It Not is a tribute to the forever golden screen legend Marilyn Monroe. Few icons have endured like Marilyn has. To know her is to love her -- and just about every person on the planet knows her! We're thrilled to bring you George S. Corey's own magnificent Marilyn-themed satire, called Some Like It Not …
 
The first episode in our Summer Series is World War T. In George S. Corey’s irreverent Covid-themed satire, written just as we were starting to emerge from the darkest days of the pandemic, George imagines a "Zombie Trump-ocalypse" that, thankfully, never was. Also in this episode, host/producer Tavia Gilbert speaks with GRAMMY-winning audio engine…

PC4K (as we like to call it) will be published in Fall -…
 
This episode is part two of a special two-parter called The Last Temptation of Trump. Like part one, 40 Days and 40 Nights, this tale’s conclusion -- called The Last Supper Club -- contains a fun, savvy sendup of Trump World using a very loosely based biblical narrative. Also a part of this educational, entertaining special episode is producer Tavi…
 
This episode is part one of a special two-parter called The Last Temptation of Trump. George S. Corey’s reimagining of the Passion as a political satire is funny and light, and, as usual, wildly inventive. And you won’t want to miss producer Tavia Gilbert’s interview with the performer behind our podcast and the audiobook of Presidential Conversati…
 
This month’s featured story is called Keeping the Faith. It was conceived by author George S. Corey as a Valentine to the current administration. Robin Miles voices Kamala Harris, and Stephen DeRosa steps into the roles of Presidents Biden and Trump. This story has a very cool musical finale, for which there’s an equally cool music video featuring …

THE SOCIAL CONTRACT podcast is for political junkies who might have forgotten just how fun (and often comical) politics and Washington's political figures can be. A lot of what you’ll hear on the podcast will be a fictional, satirical sendup — in the vein of SNL — of the hot-button political issues of the day. But sometimes we’ll get a little more …

Higher education leaders and policy makers in Australia are facing a lot of hard decisions right now. The New Social Contract Podcast spoke with UTS Vice-Chancellor Professor Attila Brungs and Shadow Minister for Education and Training Tanya Plibersek to find out their different perspectives on the purpose and role of universities in the 21st centu…
 
Who is it that makes up the constituencies of a 21st century university? And what should different sections of the public be demanding from those institutions? These questions go to the core of higher education’s purpose. Do universities create communities - or do communities create universities? And why might we be seeing the answers to these ques…
 
What kinds of work will we be doing in 2040? What industries will still be going strong and which will have fallen away? The training and education we need now will depend on the kinds of work - the industries and services - around which, as a nation we want to build our economy and society. Australia is facing possibly the worst economic downturn …
 
After a savage summer of devastating fires, universities, society and even some Australian states have recognised that the country needs a social and economic framework dedicated to the conditions of habitability - so how might the imperatives of climate change remake the social contract for universities in the 21st century? COVID-19 has not only s…
 
What does the COVID-19 crisis mean for universities now and over the next 6-12 months? There’s a lot that is uncertain. From job losses to student recruitment, future university business models and the role higher education will play in making a post-COVID society - the consequences of the pandemic are still emerging. The social settings of the pos…
 
From the 21,000 job losses predicted for Australian universities to the $19 billion hole forecast for the sector's finances, we are hearing about a whole host of numbers during the pandemic. But behind these numbers are the people who make up the higher education sector; people who you won’t necessarily hear from very often but whose lives, whether…
 
Covid-19 has torn at the fabric of our higher education institutions but were the threads of that fabric already wearing thin? In episode two of The New Social Contract we discuss the context of the crisis - what are the challenges and how did we get here? Is the pandemic likely to force a reckoning with online education and why does the closure of…
 
How Australian universities will fare in a post pandemic world depends on an influential but rarely talked about relationship. This is the relationship between the state, its institutions, and the public: what’s often referred to as “the social contract”. The social contract universities had when COVID-19 erupted, was one that patched together a va…
