    Why you've been hearing about Project 2025

    Why you've been hearing about Project 2025

    You’ve likely heard of Project 2025. It is a set of conservative policy recommendations for former President Donald Trump if he becomes the next President.
    Trump says he is not directly involved in it, and he has publicly tried to distance himself from it. However, Democrats have consistently attacked Trump’s ties to the plan. President Joe Biden has labelled it “biggest attack on our system of government  that has ever been proposed in the history of this country.” In today's deep dive, we explain everything you need to know about the plan.

    Should prisoners be allowed to read the news?

    Should prisoners be allowed to read the news?

    How do prisoners get information? How about news? This is something that a new national newspaper is trying to tackle. It’s called ‘About Time’ and it’s designed to be read by the prison population of Australia - about 40,000 people.
    In today's deep dive, we talk to the Managing Director of About Time, Jo Friedman, about why this publication is needed, what it hopes to achieve, whether it can even get behind bars, and if it makes prisoners feel more free.
    The first edition of About Time can be read here: https://www.abouttime.org.au/

My go to for Aussie news

I’ve been listening to TDA for the last few years, all the way from the US and now while living in London. It’s my go to source for staying up to date with current events in OZ. As an American, I love how simple and understandable they keep the pods!

BEST NEWS PUBLICATION IN AUSTRALIA

News that is digestible, doesn’t assume you know anything, but doesn’t make you feel dumb as you learn either. Great, bite sized, engaging stories. My favourite way to get my news in Australia!
