Dave Milner joins SpinProof
A real pleasure to speak with Dave Milner from The Shot where we went right off our talking points & into a free flowing chat about the state of #auspol - & the concern we feel at where things are at. Of course we speak about the role media plays - but the apathy of Australians is also recognised. We speak about Dave's 'very tweetable' articles, the success they've had with Anti-Murdoch stickers - & a whole lot more. Please have a listen!
Andrew P Street Joins SpinProof
Great to be joined by author & journalist - Andrew P Street (& his 2 year old toddler) - today for the SpinProof live podcast where we spoke about yet another busy #auspol week. Included today is Clive Palmer's bad week, the Govt's foolish rhetoric with China. We asked if religion & politics is getting too blurred under the Morrison Govt - and discussed Andrew Laming's claims about ADHD. We finished with some thoughts and probably not very good predictions on the Tasmanian election. A great chat to end the week!
Margo Kingston joins SpinProof live
Margo Kingston joins the SpinProof podcast today where we go straight off our talking points for a free ranging & informed #auspol conversation. Margo raises concerns about that state of the Liberal Party - we ask about the mainstream media's perhaps intentional inability to hold them to account - ask 'Where is Labor'? - & look at the hopeful path forward though real community minded Independents. A worthwhile, enjoyable & interesting chat!
Tim Dunlop joins SpinProof
So pleased to speak with writer, commentator & tweeter - Tim Dunlop - today. We touch on some of the news of the week including the vaccine roll out - & then the changing interaction between journalists & their audiences over the last 20 or so years. We speak at length about the momentum & rise of the groups popping up all over Australia which are coming together to find & elect community minded Independents. The new light on the hill! Please listen in - another great chat!
Cheryl Kernot & Noely Neate Joins SpinProof
Getting the band back together this week where SpinProof podcast regulars - Cheryl Kernot & Noely Neate - joins us to share their take on the #auspol events of our busy week. Of course we focus on the Government's botched vaccine roll out & their overall handling of the Pandemic. We also speak about the Government's 'women issues' (why aren't they men's issues?) We discuss Labor & their performance & the growing momentum behind community focused Independents. Listen into an informed & passionate chat with three political friends.
Professor Greg Barton joins SpinProof
A wide ranging discussion today with the very measured & knowledgeable Professor Greg Barton - where we spoke about the rise of the far right in Australia & around the world - & ASIO's recent language change in this regard. We of course discussed the political issues of the day & the challenges facing our democracy which don't currently seem fit to deliver the changes we need to face the challenges of our times - & what some solutions might be. This podcast was a real pleasure to host - & a must listen!
Everything you wont hear from MSM
A chill and laidback podcast which examines each week of politics and news in Australia. I found this after searching for some insights and understanding of what was happening re corruption of our Federal government, when nothing from the usual sources was covering or dissecting these important stories. I highly recommend.
Telling us how it is
Really interesting to hear the tactics used in terms of announcement timings, spin spin spin and use of favoured “journos” to test sentiment.
