Love this podcast. As an Australian living overseas this podcast gives me a clear understanding of what the key issues in Australian politics are back home. Thanks to the Guardian Australia team for doing such a great job.

This is strictly a middle-of-the-road, left-of-the-moderate-left kind of podcast from the “Guardian Australia” website. Tune in to hear how many times the host can say “right?” in between every clause of a conditional hypothetical to her guest.
Katherine provides great insight into Australian politics. As an Australian living abroad, this podcast helps me get a thorough wrap up of what’s happening in Canberra.
