The 9pm Extra: Keep the Bastards Honest episode 5, “The Murder on Thursday Law with Stilgherrian”

You may well have thought that a certain once-potent political party, the Australian Democrats, imploded around the turn of the 21st century, and you’d be right. But they’re back, with a podcast titled Keep the Bastards Honest. This week I became their first non-party guest.

We spoke about a bunch of cybersecurity and other internet-related legislation that’s either recently been passed or is in the process of being debated. Things that might have slipped under everyone’s radar with everything else that’s been going on.

And I told a few stories about the party’s leader 1986–1990, the late Janine Haines.
