Great podcast, minus the partisanship

I've really enjoyed many episodes of The Scrutineers. Alice Workman is a great interviewer and journalist and deserves full credit for creating a lively and engaging podcast. However, the level of partisanship in the most recent episodes is frankly embarrassing to both the creators and the listeners. Scott Morrison hasn't been described in such glowing terms since, well, at least the Coalition's last PR piece. It's a real discredit to the otherwise great work, and makes it difficult to take the podcast seriously as informed and objective political analysis. Hopefully there'll be a course correction and some balance will return!

Good Presenter Mediocre Guests

Alice Workman is very good in this podcast, professional, interesting and knowledgeable. The guests she had on the third podcast were terrible. Rick Morton in particular was awful, smug, glib and constantly laughing and giggling at his own not very funny smart comments. The podcast has a lot of potential, but Morton needs to be replaced.
