Are you sick of news you can trust? For over 200 years, The Chaser has been the world's leading source of news you can't trust.
Now daily in 2022, the podcast is a satirical look at Australian and world news and culture, along with occasional embarrassing confessions of parenting failures.
It's hosted by Chaser co-founders Charles Firth and Dom Knight, along with more talented, less available contributors such as Craig Reucassel, Sami Shah, Chas Licciardello, Andrew Hansen, Chris Taylor and Sami Shah. We're also joined by an excitingly less washed-up new generation of Chaser contributors such as Gabbi Bolt, Aleksa Vulovic, Lachlan Hodson and John Delmenico.

Common sense solutions.

The Tuesday May 31 ep offered more realistic and reasonable solutions to American school gun violence than anything put forward by politicians in the US so far in response to Uvalde.
As an Australian living in the US, I am now more confused than ever. Where should I look to have my mediocre satire and dodgy prop stunt needs fulfilled, and where should I look for leadership and progress on pressing social issues? I now fear for the future of the Chaser, as I see there being no chance of anyone there coming up with a character as unrealistic, pathetic and mockable as Ted Cruz or Gov Abbott of TX.

Self-realization

As an American this podcast reminds me why were the laughingstock of the world.
