    Episode 1 - How does the Government work in Australia?

    Episode 1 - How does the Government work in Australia?

    The workings and mechanisms of the Aussie Government are something we are never taught in a practical sense, only ever with information so vague or in an overwhelming amount of detail. This episode aims to outline how the Australian Government actually works, noting on it's separate powers or three branches, explaining the major players and providing an overview of it's state and local levels. Put this on in the background for a casual listen, and enjoy :)
