Go deeper into the news stories of the day.
In an era of quick news bites and a 24-hour bounce wildly between a succession of stories, the New Politics podcast gives journalists Eddy Jokovich and David Lewis the chance to go deeper into issues affecting Australia’s political scene.
Updated weekly, it focuses on federal and NSW stories alike going into the story behind the headlines. Revelations of the power grab by former Prime Minister Scott Morrison included a deeper discussion into the role of the Governor-General, David Hurley.
The duo’s analysis of the May federal election is a valuable snapshot of the remarkable result, including a discussion of the role of the teal independents, an analysis of the leaders’ speeches and bewilderment at the Labor Party’s attempt to move Kristina Kenneally from her safe Senate role into what had been a safe, multicultural seat.
