    Managing bushfires (part one)

    The new year has been anything but happy for many people in Australia. With 27 lives lost, and more than 1600 properties destroyed in this terrible bushfire season, many have started to seek answers to how we can better manage fires in the future. In part one of a two-part Policy Forum Pod episode, Dr Paul Wyrwoll and Martyn Pearce speak to Professor Janette Lindesay, Dr Siobhan McDonnell, Professor Stephen Dovers, and Dr Liz Hanna about their personal experiences with the fires, and the role climate change plays in making these kind of disastrous events even more severe.

One of the best Public Policy podcast show

I can imagine that I’ll still listen to this podcast, even years after finishing my study at Crawford. The topics are current & the panels are insightful. If you’re either public policy scholars or practitioners, this podcast is for you.

Excellent commentary from the people behind the scenes

In an age of fake news and alt-facts this podcasts it a refreshing respite.

I help run a small political party and knowing that there are people like this behind the scenes give me hope.

Really hope we get to work with some of you in the future.

Keep up the good work!
