Hi I’m Tharini Rouwette, host of Allies in Politics podcast and I'm passionate about getting more people of colour engaged in politics. My personal experience as well as my own research shows we are desperately in need of a 101 of politics to ease more of us into politics. There’s also a missed opportunity to engage with new citizens/residents as they start their lives in Australia. Because EVERYTHING’S political, it’s important that we become engaged and participate actively in the politica ...
 
Currently in it's fifth year - and more popular than ever - Politics Over Coffee is an in-depth, independent and weekly podcast that analyses the politics and news events that drive our world. Hosts Gareth and Olly, both political geeks, discuss and dissect current topics with facts, humour and a non-partisan approach. Warning: some occasional rude words.

Hello and welcome to Freedompol Snackfreedom, the freedom-based podcast that is no longer in lockdown. It's a jam-packed episode this week! We do have a content warning from 46:40 - 53:00 for a story about the death of an Indigenous woman at the hands of police, so if you don't want to hear that you can skip past it. We also have MULTIPLE SPOTW awa…
 
Recent events in NSW have shown that its Independent Commission Against Corruption is doing its job, despite the protests of Scott Morrison: the Obeids and Ian Macdonald have been sentenced to jail for attempting to embezzle $100 million through a coal mine lease licence between 2007-2009. It was the NSW ICAC which commenced proceedings against the…
 
Scott Morrison has changed his mind and will now attend the COP26 climate change forum in Glasgow. It was obvious Morrison didn’t want to got to COP26 for a number of reasons: it’s all about climate change action, which is anathema to the Liberal–National Coalition; it’s an international meeting where Australia’s embarrassingly poor policies on cli…
 
Buying property is expensive especially in Australia's biggest cities and regional areas now surging too (thanks Covid), with purchasers paying stamp duty, conveyancing, and legal fees, not to mention the huge deposit required. So, would you really want to pay more for something you could do yourself? Well, recently I did. For the first time ever, …
 
We're much refreshed and back at it again after a week off. Luckily there was juuuust enough news for us to put together a show. There is a CW for one of our First Nations stories, which involves the name of an Indigenous man who has died at the hands of police. That segment runs from 45:50 - 50:05. This week we're serving up... Aperitifs: Morrison…
 
How many times have we been told by conservative business groups in Australia that minimum wages need to be kept low so businesses have more finances to employ more people? And not just minimum wages, but all wages? The only problem is this erstwhile neoliberal pipedream doesn’t actually work and there’s a recent Nobel Prize for Economics out there…
 
In this episode I talk to Anka Sahin, an Australian immigration law professional, who has assisted thousands of individuals from more than 80 different nationalities and advised some of the most prominent corporate entities in Australia on employee eligibility, sponsorship obligations and compliance. Between 2010 and 2012, he successfully and singl…
 
The most surprising part of News Corporation’s greenwashing of the Liberal Party is not so much that it’s occurring right now, but the fact that it’s happening so quickly. The Liberal Party – working hand in glove with the Business Council of Australia, and their erstwhile friends at News Corporation – has resisted all action on climate change ever…
 
A disaster brings out the best and at times, the worst in everyday ordinary people. Rarely is it something less polarizing. Thinking of devastating bush fires, major floods, or terrorist attacks and the raw, media images of what disaster looks like -- and the days that follow -- are pretty confronting for many people, let alone those experiencing t…
 
We're taking a week off! Woo! So we're releasing this bonus episode from a couple months ago. Zac did some actual research about Bob Hawke acting as an informant for the US Government, and Noon did some rants about the Rendlesham Forest incident and the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. Support us financially over on Patreon for a bonus episode every…
 
There’s continuing fallout from the broken French submarines deal, and a humiliated country will seek retribution in other ways. Australia didn’t learn the lessons given by China, where the Australian government pressured the WHO to investigate the origins of coronavirus and Defence Minister, Peter Dutton, decided to directly blame China for releas…
 
Two senators did what this show predicted and have the blocked second part of the “Build Back Better Act”. Why? The American Chamber Of Commerce might know. A shocking new poll from the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia reveals that over half of Trump voters surveyed, and 41% of Biden voters, are in favor of blue and/or red states s…
 
In Australia, the federal parliament lacks people of colour representatives. Data on the cultural diversity of the 46th parliament is scarce, but a 2018 report from the Australian Human Rights Commission found just 4.1 per cent of parliamentarians had a non-European background. This episode's guest, Mannie Kaur Verma, is a lawyer and human rights a…
 
There’s been far too much adulation from the media for the former Premier of New South Wales, Gladys Berejiklian, who took the decision to resign from Parliament, after the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption declared she is a person of interest in a corruption investigation. Politicians are not rock stars, and journalists are not their g…
 
The costs associated with turnover and lower productivity seen in burnout result in a loss of $322 billion annually according to the World Economic Forum stats from January 2021. There is a wave of burnout with many of us trying to stay afloat in a pandemic and find a way to recharge when many of the tools we use such as socializing, group exercise…
 
You know, Gladys? Gladys Berryjuicelemon? Well, anyway, this week we're serving up: Aperitifs: It is #BirdoftheYear time! Drop your vote for the regent honeyeater here: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2021/sep/27/australian-bird-of-the-year-2021-vote-now-for-your-favourite Also, the fallout for our cancelled submarine deal wi…
 
It happened quickly but it wasn’t really a shock when the NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, resigned after it was revealed that the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption was commenced proceedings to investigate whether she acted corruptly in the award of community grants between 2012 and 2018. There were many tears and Berejiklian resigned r…
 
Tatum Moore is a Dubbo community leader, a proud Indigenous woman, mother of three, a business advisor and mentor and also a business owner, who is running to become a councillor at Dubbo Regional City Council. If elected, she will be the very first Indigenous woman ever elected into council as well as being the youngest. Allies in Politics talks t…
 
The United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP26 – is coming up soon, but Scott Morrison is toying with the idea of not attending the event in Glasgow. This is the most important climate change conference since 2015 – and possibly ever – but Morrison isn’t interested, too busy fondling the lump of coal he dragged into federal Parliament, a rock…
 
Daisy Turnbull is the Director of Wellbeing at an independent girls’ school in Sydney (in fact my own alma mater), where she has also been a teacher for eight years. She has taught across school systems including some time at a behavioral school, working with students from diverse backgrounds. Before going into teaching Daisy worked in interactive …
 
It's another super long episode because our story on the Melbourne protests accidentally went nearly an hour long. Whoopsie doodle! Hopefully you find our discussion at least somewhat interesting or insightful. We also have a couple of trigger warnings at the end of the show. Time codes are below and we give warnings when you're listening before th…
 
Melbourne has had a big week: it’s long suffering populace had to put up with a barrage of abuse from the Melbourne conservative media, a rent-a-crowd protest dressed up like union members and 74-year-old grandmothers attacked the city and, to top that off, they also had a 5.8 Richter magnitude earthquake. Of course, there were union members within…
 
(After grabbing our chief technician by the throat and sacking him, we now release the actual episode...sorry...) On this podcast I get to interview the folks that inspired us to create a podcast. After 9 years on air, I finally get to interview the great people behind The Professional Left Podcast, Driftglass and Bluegal. We talk about their lovin…
 
The rise of organic food has been steady over the past 20 years and is very much part of many consumer's food buying decision process. Paddock to plate is an in-demand thing too. One of Australia’s best-known organic meat success stories is Cleaver’s Organic meats. Starting from a humble suburban butcher’s store in Sydney, Cleaver’s products are no…
 
We have a big show this week, with some actual uncomplicated positivity, some big brain economic analysis, and of course, le memes. We have a CW for our First Nations story for the name of someone who has died and descriptions of police violence. IF you'd like to skip that story it runs from 24:00 - 30:50. Our second FN story is also about racist p…
 
The Labor factions are at it again, this time creating a preselection problem in South West Sydney. Kristina Keneally is a former NSW Premier and sits in the Senate, but if she wanted to continue in politics, she had to be parachuted into the seat of Fowler, which is specifically a back-up-seat when preselection problems arise. It means whoever has…
 
We basically have just too much to talk about this episode. We reflect on 9/11. Marvel at the great and wonderful speech of George W. Bush…we were moved…then remembered stuff…damn that memory. Right wing radio hosts are dropping like flies, Joe Manchin is definitely possessed. The GOP lose in California and Australia is getting nuclear subs. Randy …
 
Our US correspondent, Col is joined by Californian, Amy to talk about the Californian Gubernatorial Recall, and give their passing thoughts to Texas’s new legislation.

Freelance writing is a pipe dream for many burnt-out staff reporters, hobby writers, and anyone who wants to achieve work-life balance on their own terms. Alexandra Cain or Ali as most of her clients and peers call her has spent 20 years building and sustaining a successful freelance business writing career. Ali wanted to be a business journalist e…
 
The Australian Progressives and I talk about how poverty is a political choice and who the most vulnerable groups are, to most suffer from poverty. We also touch lightly on the need to support minor parties and recent changes in legislation that seek to reduce the number and influence of minor parties in the Australian political arena.…
 
Welcome back to another serving of Snackpod! We're trying things a little differently so we're starting off this week with... Aperitifs: Matthew Guy is back; Lyle Shelton is disendorsed by God; Women's Safety Summit was pretty depressing (more of this in the next story); Kristina K Keneally is parachuted into the Lower House. Fashy Australia: (CW f…
 
It has been confirmed that the federal government was contacted by Pfizer in June 2020 to provide Australia with 40 million doses – which wasn’t taken up by the government – after months of denying the story and suggesting that everyone else was wrong. There’s two issues here: the constant denials – which continue to be provided by Scott Morrison a…
 
In current times, with all the challenges of a global pandemic and what that means for us as we navigate work, family, isolation, sickness and sanity (and in lockdown for some of us), the notion of kindness must be an anecdote for some of that which we struggle with. I am speaking today to Hugh Mackay, a highly regarded social psychologist and rese…
 
(Due to a technical problem, the previous release of The Bill Show: #280 was incomplete...here is the full show!) Republicans spend their time condemning Biden for getting out of the bloody war they started 20 years ago. Texas and the Supreme Court shred Roe VS Wade. We personally take on Tucker Carlson as he slams Victoria Australia (where we are)…
 
We have another bumper episode for you all to chow down on! I think the first half of the show is pretty fun, but with our usual emotional whiplash, the back half of the show has a few content warnings. There are discussions of police violence against Indigenous people, discussing people who have died, and discussion of DV and sexual assault. We've…
 
he politics of the COVID pandemic are still being played as hard as possible – at a time when the public craves unity and expecting governments to manage the crisis in the best way possible. It would seem that the Queensland and Western Australian Governments are doing well – case numbers are zero – but they are the governments the media are attack…
 
Around 20 years ago, I did a whole Masters thesis on Philanthropic models that took me to leaders in this arena across the USA and Europe. While most of us take an impulsive approach to giving, a little bit of research into where your dollars will do the most good can make your donation hundreds or even thousands of times more effective! The Life Y…
 
I know we say "there's bad news" every week but this really is a pretty heavy episode, at least the back end of the show. We have a few content warnings that start at about 59 minutes - more specifics below. To balance it out we've tried to put in a few mini positivity corners throughout. Transcripts of our episodes are uploaded within a few days a…
 
The Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, now wants Australia to “live with the virus” and “get out of the cave”. But why the big rush? Essentially, it’s to cover over the mistakes of the NSW Government during this wave of the Delta outbreak, and remove himself of political problems in the lead up to the next federal election. And “live with the virus” i…
 
We're in lockdown in the Dystopian Authoritarian Hell of Tucker Carlson's fever dream. Anyway...since we're in lockdown we thought we'd give you a taste of "Bill and Randy at the Movies". Today we share some great films...YOU PROBABLY HAVEN'T SEEN...that are available if you find yourself bored with Netflix with a cat staring at you during COVID lo…
 
Courage means different things to different people. I have known Sonia McDonald for close to seven years. Her personal story has much to do with courage in the face of some pretty hard times and she has been able to rise above it all to forge her own successful path. Sonia is a global leadership executive coach and advisor, thought leader, dynamic …
 
After fully two years of mildly hassling him, our Fifth Beatle Lewis has finally come on the show! He's here to drop some knowledge about Afghanistan and critique some common left wing positions about the war (as well as the war itself, of course). Also featuring a fascinating and alarming digression about the NSW-Sudan war. We have a regular show …
 
The Delta version of coronavirus has taken hold in Sydney and if the NSW Government doesn’t take action to reverse the tide, the daily case numbers are going to reach 2,000 and it’s an number that is unlikely to be palatable to the electorate. And if it continues to spiral out of control, it’s likely to take hold of the NSW Premier, Gladys Berejikl…
 
Holly Ransom is a globally renowned content curator, powerful speaker, and master questioner with the belief that if you walk past it, you tell the world it’s okay.
