    Episode 100 - a "best of" the worst times.

    To celebrate the 100th episode of my indulgent wacky clips news comedy podcast I’ve cobbled together a non-stop funny romp through some of the biggest news stories since the show started in February 2019. From the Black Summer bushfires through to the covid lockdowns, the vaccine strollout and our Omicron summer, expect to laugh, cry and want to move to New Zealand! Also we have some of the best showbiz and culture highlights from Stefan and some big celebrities send in their congratulations!
    Thanks to Dan Ilic and Stefan Pazur for appearing and celebrity wrangler Chris "The Mystery Man" McGrane.

    Election Night 2022: Scott Morrison runs out of miracles.

    Election Night 2022: Scott Morrison runs out of miracles.

    I look back at all the drama and fun from Election Night 2022: the shocks, the tech stuff ups, the confusion, the passive aggressive concession speeches, the blame games, the mind games and the denying of reality. Also what the results mean for Aussie conservativism going forward.
    Thanks for listening this election campaign, News Fighters is going on hiatus. Please fill out my anonymous listener survey to help me work out the future of the show: https://forms.gle/W2yWD19cj4qC68H96
