Essential listening

Essential listening for those young and curious about how power really works - or old and cynical.

So educational and so important

I’m grateful that we have people at the ABC to produce content like this which shines a light on the parts of society which we can improve upon. It gives me hope that indeed we will challenge power and rebalance society

Interesting, but.....

Certainly interesting, but I can't help but think the ABC missed a real opportunity here. There is a distinct lack of REAL lower class people. Instead, they have confused lower class with poor, and they generally interview Poor but Educated ABC listener types - which is a different thing entirely. For example, a young man who is educated, speaks well and lives in an inner city suburb may be poor, but he is not lower class. This podcast really needed to get out into the outer suburbs - the world outside that of its producers and presenters.
