The autumn series of the Edict concludes with a returning special guest, Scottish author and social researcher David F Porteous, to chat about the UK election campaigns and much, much more.

We discuss cocaine and koalas, Scott Morrison’s post-parliamentary career, Elon Musk’s $56 billion package, the King’s Birthday, and an encounter between an echidna and a tiger shark.
