This is my fourth outing as guest co-host of Well May We Say, the Australian progressive politics podcast from Jeremy Sear-Pirko in Melbourne. This episode is titled "Anti-Vicsers" because... well I assume you've been following the COVID-19 news.

We also solve Australia's housing affordability crisis with some of Jeremy's modest proposals, and wonder whether there's actually a point to any of this political d...

We also deliver some excellent ideas for politi...

It's hard to believe that this podcast began in 2010. Welcome to a remix of the first recycled Edict -- a compilation of least-worst bits from the early episodes of The 9pm Edict first posted in March 2019.

In this episode, there's some nostalgia about Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott, the digital economy, Peter Garrett, Sydney's Vivid Festival, NIMBYs, journalism, and more.

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.

  • The Daily

    This is what the news should sound like. The biggest stories of our time, told by the best journalists in the world. Hosted by Michael Barbaro. Twenty minutes a day, five days a week, ready by 6 a.m.
