Well then. It happened. Anthony Albanese is Prime Minister and Australia has a new Labor government. There’s a sense of hope in the air, but there’s also a sense of hesitation.

In episode we talk about the election result, obviously. We also talk about the unhinging of the conservative commentators, especially those on Sky News Australia, about the problems in political journalism, international relations, potential changes in the National Party, and US politician Kandiss Taylor.
