Canberra critic ,

A must listen podcast

If you really want to understand what is unfolding across Australia this is a must listen podcast. I look forward to it every morning. James Campbell is an excellent host and his guests are fair and impartial. There is honest analysis each morning. The discussion includes critical pieces of information you won’t hear anywhere else.

Short, sharp, entertaining

Melbourne and Victorian focussed with truly excellent coverage of Coronavirus. Can be light and entertaining through to deep talks with economists and epidemiologists. James Campbell an excellent host, as expected with some very good columns on matters of state.
