    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 12, Last thoughts…with Betoota Advocate
    It's been a wild ride but here ends our journey together. Wendell Hussey from the awesome satirical news site and I answer last questions about the election, who to vote for if you care about climate, what to do if there are no indies in your electorate, what if one of the parties directs my preferences (hint: they can't) and what do we think will be the ideal outcome for Australia (I don't hold back). We return to the normal format next week with some awesome guests. Meantime, please do rate this pod. To keep things going here, I will need some 5 star love! Love you all!

    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 11, Why we must vote for a First Nations Voice, with Prof Megan Davis

    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 11, Why we must vote for a First Nations Voice, with Prof Megan Davis

    For 15 years, successive governments have kicked the Indigenous Voice to Parliament can down the road. A referendum to enshrine a Voice into the constitution has been shown time and time again to be the most important first step to closing the yawning - and growing - gap between Indigenous and non-indigenous Australians. Three quarters of Australians say they want it…and yet here we are again! Today Prof Megan Davis, a Cobble Cobble Aboriginal woman, human rights lawyer and co-architect of the Uluru Statement from the Heart, joins us to explain the importance of voting for candidates who support the Voice. My friends, it's time. As Megan says in our chat, this election is a sliding doors moment.
    Please do read the Uluru Statement From the Heart and support the cause https://ulurustatement.org/the-statement/

    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 10, How will a hung Parliament work? Will it be chaos? Tony Windsor sets us straight

    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 10, How will a hung Parliament work? Will it be chaos? Tony Windsor sets us straight

    It’s looking very possible that this election will result in a hung parliament, where one of the parties must form a minority government with a bunch of independents. The implications of this are huge (and exciting!) and it’s worth knowing how it would work (and how it could be the right kind of shake-up we need). Former independent Tony Windsor was one of the crossbenchers who famously had to form government last time this happened in 2010. He talks us through the behind the scenes stuff and the scare campaign tactics that are being flung about the place.

    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 9, Who has the best policies for women with Jane Caro and CheekMedia's Kristen Perissinotto

    Australia has become a country with one of the worst records for gender equality in the world. A picture worsened by the misogyny we've witnessed from within Parliament in the past 18 months. And so women are rallying this election according to many polls. This ep we cover the policies and commitments to look out for that will change the system for all women and finish by answering your questions regarding the public v private school funding fiasco. I also provide a few widgets and hacks for navigating your vote.

    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 8, How to #voteclimate, with Richie Merzian

    THIS WILD ELECTION: EP 8, How to #voteclimate, with Richie Merzian

    Climate is the #1 issue this election for Australian voters. And yet politicians are making a meal of it and hiding their lacking climate policies in misinformation. This ep I outline each party’s climate policy (or lackthereof in the case of the Liberal National Party) and I invite The Australia Institute’s climate director Richie to sift through the classic climate lines/lies that are bandied about so that we can all navigate things more clearly, you know the ones, that we’re meeting our commitments “at a canter”, that EVs can’t tow a boat, that renewable energy kills jobs…
