John Doyle – Comedian and Genius

The Andrew Ollie 2005 Media Lecture was presented by John Doyle.

For those of you who haven’t seen him, Doyle is “Roy Slaven” – part of the comical duo, Roy and HG.

Although John Doyle’s lecture was very funny in parts, he delivered an incisive appraisal of the state of our world, with some intelligent suggestions on what could be done about it.

If you ever find yourself questioning things like the “Dumbing Down” of commercial media, the future of the ABC, the facile nature of Talkback Radio, and the decline of the skeptical thought process, then you’ll appreciate what Doyle has to say.
