The 9pm Narrative of Tolerance and Shame

Sky News Australia presenter Chris Kenny congratulates the ABC on its 90th birthday on 30 June 2022.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has just celebrated its 90th birthday, but it’s the reaction to that which has triggered some thoughts. Long thoughts. Ranty thoughts.

In this episode we talk about writing, about political myths, about political journalism (again), transphobia, a funnel, and about everything from NIMBY attitudes, to Peter Dutton’s excellent leadership skills, to Christian Porter’s latest career move.
