I created OZgirl Politics to increase women's participation in grassroots Australian politics and help new citizens navigate the same. Each episode, I will be taking on hard topics and simplifying them so that you can make better, informed political decisions and become politically active. My podcast is not intended to promote any political party but rather facilitate a vibrant sharing of knowledge and encourage political discourse among women. Ozgirl Politics will officially launch episodes ...
 
Can the lessons of history help us to solve the problems of the present? Can history provide clues about the widespread contemporary disillusion with politics and democratic institutions? Can it guide us in navigating difficult policy reform in areas such as immigration, climate change, welfare and taxation? This series of interviews with prominent politicians, public servants and academics seeks to bring the wisdom of hindsight to bear on the issues that challenge us today.
 
A critical but mostly overlooked aspect of both contemporary and historical political violence is the role diaspora communities have played in the planning, organization, financing, and execution of acts of terror. Members of the American Irish, Canadian Sikh, Swiss Tamil and Australian Croat diasporas—to provide just a sample—have all been powerful agents in the terrorist activities perpetrated in the name of their national and religious communities. The Diaspora Politics and Transnational ...

This week, Katharine Murphy sits down with economics writers Shane Wright and Greg Jericho to discuss the Australian economy. With house prices soaring, stimulus payments being reduced and a budget on the way, what can people expect financially over the coming months?Von The Guardian
 
The world is slowly moving towards climate change solutions and, once again, Australia is the laggard on the world stage but trying to tell everyone how well it's performing, even though no other world leader believes it. And this is the modus operandi of the Morrison government: lie, mispresent the data, gaslight, or divert the attention somewhere…
 
Lukas Coch/AAP “The warfare of the 21st century” is going to be “fought in cyberspace before kinetic shots are fired” says leading national security expert David Irvine. And perhaps the fight has already begun, with Australia’s institutions, businesses, and citizens subject to a near constant barrage of cyber attacks. Previously chair and now a boa…
 
The crew attempt to learn why Joe Hildebrand thinks focussing too much on whether or not the highest law officer in the land is himself a crook could derail womens' rights and safety... and we fail... seriously, WTF is this guy on... why can't he write and why is he paid so much to.... oh...oh yes... ok... #auspol #Joehildebrand #grifter #steamroll…
 
Welcome back to Auspol Snackpod, the podcast that hasn't figured out the format for its joke intros yet. We have another long episode for you all, starting with a tasty entree... Entree: Happy Weed Day / Hitler's Birthday - a brief update on the situation with marijuana in so-called Australia Blurst Take: Kristina K. Keneally loves torturing childr…
 
This week Katharine Murphy speaks with Erwin Jackson, the policy director at Investor Group on Climate Change, to discuss the Biden administration’s pressure on Australia to cut greenhouse gas emissions faster than planned. With the global summit of 40 world leaders held this week, how will Australia face up to the challenge of transitioning to a n…
 
Glenn Hunt/AAP Sunday is ANZAC day - and this year it comes at a particularly important time for Australia’s military image. Last week, Scott Morrison announced Australia’s remaining troops will leave Afghanistan by September, following President Biden’s announcement of the United States withdrawal. One negative legacy of Australia’s participation …
 
Another week, another too much news and politics and politicians saying extremely silly stuff. This week we’re chatting about: Positivity Corner: Domino’s fails to stop worker class action SPOTW: Leunig and Christine Holgate Another Round of Coronas: Vaccine blood clots and a potluck Broken Clock: NDIS independent assessments put on hold First Nati…
 
Katharine Murphy sits down with Labor MP Chris Bowen to talk about Labor’s potential roadmap to zero net emissions. Why is Australia lagging so badly behind in the electric vehicle market? Why have the past 10 years needed for crucial changes been squandered? How will Labor win over voters who are reluctant for the looming and necessary transition?…
 
Mick Tsikas/AAP Former Australia Post CEO Christine Holgate has given evidence to a Senate inquiry into her dramatic exit from Australia Post. Holgate left her position last year, when the prime minister denounced her in parliament for giving Cartier watches as rewards to Australia Post executives. Victim of a hit job, Holgate inflicted damaging hi…
 
We recorded this episode early! We can only assume that there have been no developments in our stories. Which are, this week... Coronas: Vaccines from the EU are delayed, or maybe they're not? (Definitely no developments on this one... nope...) Positivity Corner: Landlords are selling off their houses now that it's mandatory to ensure houses have, …
 
The vaccination program is now officially in fiasco territory, with error after error and now another announcement of 20 million Pfizer doses "secured" after problems with the AstraZeneca vaccines. Which, of course, is not the same as actually having the doses in doctors’ surgeries all around Australia. We feel that it’s almost like the program has…
 
Luong Thai Linh/AAP As of Tuesday, only 920,334 doses of the coronavirus vaccine have been administered - a fraction of the four million doses the Morrison government had promised by end-March. The rollout’s complications and failures have sparked a backlash from some GPs, pharmacists, and states. The federal government says the problems are mainly…
 
It's the return of Le Snak this week, we have a super long episode and - April Fools! - everything is totally awful. There are a LOT of content warnings for this episode, I've included the time codes below and we also mention it while we're talking so you can skip past. Coronas: We are very behind on our vaccination roll out; the Federal Government…
 
Katharine Murphy sits down with fellow Canberra reporters Sarah Martin, Paul Karp and Amy Remeikis to answer your most urgent political questions. Is Scott Morrison’s approval rating high enough to keep him in office? Why haven’t the promised 4m Covid vaccines been rolled out? Does the toxic culture within parliament extend outside the Coalition?…
 
Mick Tsikas/AAP In the passionate debate over the treatment of women in workplaces, and particularly the extent of violence and harassment, the voice of Indigenous women, especially those living in isolated communities, has gone largely unheard. Linda Burney, speaking at the ALP’s National Conference this week, strongly advocated for equality and o…
 
It's another half-show this week with just one of Australia's foremost political nobodies, but we'll be doing a regular show next time! (Also, sorry about the room noise.) Content warnings in our First Nations story for discussing people who have died (though I don't use their names) which runs from 7:18-10:24, and in SPOTW for transphobia from 30:…
 
Katharine Murphy sits down with the Nationals’ deputy leader, David Littleproud, to discuss the party’s stance on reducing carbon emissions. They discuss how communities in regional areas want to see progress in tackling climate change, and whether the party is ready to address the facts or continue its turbulent stance…
 
Glenn Hunt/AAP Over the last month, as more and more stories of sexually explicit behaviour and misconduct within the walls of Parliament House have been revealed, the “culture” of politics has come into question. One particular issue is the role and representation of women, and the need for more female voices to express the interests – and pain an…
 
Zac's still away so this week it's solo Noon! Entree: Flooding in Sydney / the country Coronas: Vaccine rollout, AstraZeneca blood clot issues, and Italy stealing our medicine, First Nations: Indigenous communities are way better at dealing with coronavirus than white Australia UFU: Awful person Mick Fuller floats the idea of a "consent app" Positi…
 
The many women of Australia have said “enough is enough”, and said it loudly through the March 4 Justice campaign. But the Prime Minister is hard of hearing and wants it all to be on his terms, refusing to meet the organisers of the rally in public, wanting to meet behind closed doors and in private. Which is exactly what a rapist would do. And, of…
 
In a sit-down interview, political reporter Daniel Hurst speaks to Asio chief Mike Burgess about lessons from Christchurch and why the organisation is no longer using the umbrella term ‘rightwing extremism’ • Australia’s spy chief vows to call out rightwing terrorism when there’s a specific threatVon The Guardian
 
Mick Tsikas/AAP On Monday, women across the nation marched, demanding justice, safety and equality. But the government’s response was lacklustre, with Scott Morrison and the Minister for Women Marise Payne refusing to go outside to the crowd. Morrison later chose his words badly when he said: “Not far from here, such marches, even now are being met…
 
Hey everyone, unfortunately Zac has had some bad news in his family and is going to be away for the near future, so Snackpod is going to be taking a short break. Given that it was just International Women's Day, and the March4Justice, we thought it was a relevant bonus episode to play for you this week. We'll keep you updated about when we'll be ba…
 
Katharine Murphy talks to sex discrimination commissioner Kate Jenkins as she starts her investigation into parliament’s workplace culture. Jenkins discusses the risk factors in all workplaces which can heighten the risk to safety, and how she plans to bring about cultural change in CanberraVon The Guardian
 
Lukas Coch/AAP Christian Porter has unequivocally denied the historic rape allegations levelled against him, and says he is determined to stay in his job as attorney-general. Both Scott Morrison and Porter are adamant the “rule of law” in this country places the attorney-general beyond prosecution, now that the NSW police have closed the case. Port…
