Hi I’m Tharini Rouwette, host of Allies in Politics podcast. Professionally, I live at the intersection of sustainability, media, and technology. Whereas privately, I am 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 ...

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.

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…

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…
 
Mick Tsikas/AAP In the week of the National Summit on Women’s Safety, Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins joins the podcast to discuss progress – and lack of progress – on issues of vital importance to Australian women.

We have another bumper episode for you all to chow down on!

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…

Our ability to ‘Test, Trace, Isolate and Quarantine’ people who have been exposed to Covid19 has been the front line of Australia’s defence against Covid. But while Australia’s TTIQ is world class, it can and will be overrun if case numbers are allowed to keep rising. The Doherty Modelling makes clear that without a highly functioning TTIQ system w…
 
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…
 
James Ross/AAP The Doherty modelling is the government’s underpinning for a proposed easing of COVID restrictions once we reach targets of 70% and 80% of the adult population vaccinated. But the exit path has put Scott Morrison at odds with Western Australia and Queensland, states which would inevitably have to give up their present status of havin…
 
The wealth of Australians (or at least some of them) has grown by an extraordinary $9.5 trillion or 302% in the past 33 years according to a new report released by the Australia Institute. But because Australia currently has no taxes on wealth and collects very little income from capital gains, government revenues have not grown nearly as rapidly a…

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…

The Au…
 
Darren England/AAP Graphic pictures of mayhem confront the world as desperate Afghans attempt to flee their country, after the Taliban’s seizure of Kabul. Australia’s moral responsibly to evacuate people who assisted the Australian Defence Force, and may now face Taliban retribution, has become an important part of our exit from this lost war. The …

This is one of the worst public health and economic disasters ever in Sydney but what is even worse, is the entire crisis could have been avoided. Why would the NSW Government avoid implementing the plans that were so successful in every other state and territory across Australia – hard, fast and early lockdowns – when it was obvious that this is w…
 
Lukas Coch/AAP When Treasurer Josh Frydenberg joined the podcast in December, the outlook was positive. While the forecast deficit was massive at nearly $200 billion, it had been revised down and the prospects for growth and employment revised up.

The federal government and its best friend – the NSW Government – are sinking in the polls because of one key issue: the mismanagement of the pandemic. Qualitative and quantitative research is showing a rapid decline in the support of both of these governments and their efforts to spin, manipulate and gaslight the public are falling on deaf ears. B…
 
Lukas Coch/AAP In the lead up to the 2019 election, the Shorten opposition attacked the government’s planned 2024 tax cuts, and promised to curb negative gearing and halve the capital gains tax discount. Last week, the Albanese opposition said it wouldn’t try to unwind the tax cuts and would leave negative gearing intact - a pragmatic decision desi…
 
The government's massive $300 billion income tax cuts package will proceed in full, making inequality worse and mainly benefitting high income earners. But what makes a tax good or bad?

There are too many vested interests in Sydney and it makes it difficult for the NSW Government to act in the public interest and, because of this, the city is now in a nine-week lockdown, with no end in sight. Gladys Berejiklian says “but there is no guidebook for a pandemic”. Actually, there is, and we provide a five-point plan, which would be obv…

In this episode, Allan Behm discusses the securitisation of domestic policy issues and how bringing in the ADF doesn't really solve anything.

There's a CW from 35 mins til the end o…
 
Political games are never far away when it comes to COVID-19 management in Australia and, of course, it’s across the political divide: the Liberal Party of NSW and the federal government on one side, and Labor Premiers on the other. If only the NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian had shown some sympathy to Victoria when they went through their lockdown…
