    US politics: who is JD Vance, Donald Trump’s candidate for vice-president?

    After the attempted assassination of Donald Trump over the weekend, the Republican national convention gathered in Milwaukee this week to welcome him as the party’s presidential nominee. But not all eyes were on the former president. Standing next to him, above the chanting crowd, was his newly appointed candidate for vice-president, JD Vance. It was a surprising move for the Ohio senator and author of Hillbilly Elegy who once described himself as a ‘never Trumper’ and his new boss as ‘America’s Hitler’. So what’s behind this transformation, and what’s in it for Trump? To find out, Jonathan Freedland is joined this week by Tara Setmayer, a former Republican congressional communications director

    Newsroom edition: has life for Australians become harder, or does it just feel that way?

Absolutely Love Full Story

You do such an amazing job. I love the realistic perspectives, the fairly presented points of view. While it’s evident there is a left lean to your coverage, it usually feels balanced and importantly, it feels like both sides of the facts are interrogated.

For over a decade I have not engaged in any form of news—traditional, social or otherwise. This podcast has actually enabled me to re-engage in political and other news without feeling overwhelmed and constantly depressed.
I can’t thank you all enough for the brilliant work you do. I am in absolute awe of your very large brains, the way you all speak, and the nuance with which you approach the wide ranging topics that you cover on the program.

Not that you need my praise but…well done all of you! 🌸🌸🌸
