    The 9pm Election Unhinging: Week the Sixth

    The 9pm Election Unhinging: Week the Sixth

    Just two sleeps to go! With the election day this Saturday 21 May, and with the polls showing a solid chance of a Labor win, the unhinging continues on all sides. Let's talk about that, and other things.

    In episode we talk about the ongoing corflute wars, a certain terrible election advertisement, Scott Morrison's love of focus groups, his character, and the Coalition's housing policy. There's even a brief visit from George W Bush.

    The 9pm Election Unhinging: Week the Fifth

    The 9pm Election Unhinging: Week the Fifth

    Nine sleeps to go! As Australia's federal election campaign enters its final days, the unhinging is going through the roof -- and it's not just the politicians who are losing their minds.

    In episode we talk about bad journalism, the leaders debates on Nine and Seven, the sexiness of Bob Katter, Australia's Mother of the Year, how all Asian-Australian candidates look the same, lies, the making of the sausages, vaccinated zombies, and why John Howard is the Angel of Death.

    The 9pm Election Unhinging: Week the Fourth

    The 9pm Election Unhinging: Week the Fourth

    With just 16 days left in Australia's federal election campaign, the unhinging continues. Anthony Albanese has officially launched Labor's policies, and Scott Morrison's campaign looks like it's starting to get a bit desperate.

    In this slightly arithmetic-heavy episode we talk about Tim Wilson's derangement, Pauline Hanson's One Nation, housing affordability, interests rates, that goddam chicken curry, and the supposed chaos of so-called hung parliaments. Again.

    The 9pm Election Unhinging: Week the Third

    We're almost halfway through Australia's federal election campaign, and of course the unhinging continues -- but was it as unhinged as last week?

    In this episode we talk about Katherine Deves' hilariously bad campaign video, hung parliaments, the Prime Minister standing firm, inflation, and even Nigella Lawson.

    We're two weeks into Australia's federal election campaign, and of course the unhinging continues.

    In this episode we talk about Vote Compass, disendorsed One Nation candidates, theory of mind, self-proclaimed senator-in-exile Rod Culleton, actor Miriam Margolyes, and Anthony Albanese going down with the 'rona.

JodWi ,

These Autumn series are really good

I always enjoy listening to Stilgherrian, but these autumn series are especially nice to listen to. The one with David Gérard about the blockchain scams was a real treat: informative, easy to understand, informative and entertaining.
