Nine sleeps to go! As Australia’s federal election campaign enters its final days, the unhinging is going through the roof — and it’s not just the politicians who are losing their minds.

In episode we talk about bad journalism, the leaders debates on Nine and Seven, the sexiness of Bob Katter, Australia’s Mother of the Year, how all Asian-Australian candidates look the same, lies, the making of the sausages, vaccinated zombies, and why John Howard is the Angel of Death.
