Excellent daily election wrap up

A wonderful election podcast - really top quality daily episodes, very worth a listen to anyone interested in Australia politics or looking for more information to inform their vote.

I love Crikey

I love this podcast - it’s fresh and to the point. I especially love listening to Bernard Keane and his witty, insightful analysis.

I’m enjoying it

I hope it sticks around afterwards.
Could be a gateway drug to subscriptions to Crikey’s online newspaper.
