    Clare Malone on who will be the next US President

    With only days to go before the US Election, Julia speaks to Clare Malone, a Senior Political Reporter with data driven news site, FiveThirtyEight on what we can expect to see when ballots are counted.


    Clare explains the current state of play – what is the data telling us about who will win the presidency, what might happen on election day and in the weeks and months after, and how things look for Trump compared to 2016.


    Clare and Julia discuss how American women are voting this election, why they are voting differently to 2016, and what issues are influencing their vote.
    Julia asks Clare about the sexist treatment of female political candidates, how media and community perceptions of gender stereotyping have evolved in politics as we’ve seen more women run for high office, and the performance of Kamala Harris as the Democratic Vice Presidential Nominee.


    Clare talks about her experiences as a young journalist, and how she navigated her path through a male dominated environment.


    “The past few decades of American life have been about revealing that while the white male experience has been the predominant force in American life thus far, that is changing and…it will not be the case for much longer”.

    Julia speaks to Jennifer Palmieri who was Communications Director on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign and has been on the frontline of US politics for the last 20 years. They discuss the upcoming US election and whether or not we can trust what the polls are telling us this time around. Jennifer speaks about the way gender is influencing voters and voting outcomes, and reflects on how different this campaign feels to when Hillary Clinton ran in 2016. Jennifer also talks about why she thinks women need to stop playing a man’s game and change the way the game works. She also speaks about seeing history through a different lens and her friendship with Monica Lewinksy. “Women have to see that our success is linked to the success of other women…I felt like I didn’t need the help of other women, that I was going to make it on my own… What I’ve come to appreciate is that if you want to take it to the next level, you need that sisterhood to support you and you need to be a part of it.”

That’s what we do – disrupt the status quo.”

Interview with Hillary Clinton

Julia Gillard is such an insightful interviewer - just listened to interview with Hillary Clinton - how on earth she got up the next morning after the 2016 loss is beyond me but Julia asked the question and Hillary as always takes it outside herself - serve outside yourself and find your passions. Hillary’s passion is so obviously to foster and inspire liberal change. Thank you Julia for the interview. Your quiet listening-style is a welcome change.
