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 ...

This term of Parliament is descending into chaos, and it’s almost as though the anarchist society has taken over the Senate and House of Representatives. But it’s not the anarchist society: it’s the Liberal–National Coalition which is now resembling a thoroughly disorganised rabble. The Voter ID and Religious Discrimination Bills are in tatters – l…
 
It’s increasingly obvious the Prime Minister is using the final stages of this Parliament to roadtest a number of different election slogans. Last week it was ‘Australians taking back their lives’, followed by ‘Australians have had a gutful of being told what to do’, interspersed with ‘cost of living’ and ‘can-do capitalism’. This week it was ‘movi…
 
Mentoring has been a critical part of many successful people’s career story. Sometimes it’s done formally and for an exchange of money, but often it is about a more seasoned leader meeting regularly with a less seasoned human and imparting ideas, knowledge, and even empowerment. I am chatting today to James Sewell, the founder of MentorConnex, a se…
 
It's another pre-recorded episode this week - lucky there's no news, right?? Snackpod are the proud owners of one of maybe only eight or ten copies of Gina Rinehart's alleged jokebook, Jokes and Joys (Dedicated to Aussie Mother). So for this week's episode, we read some of the least vile jokes and memes straight from Australia's richest person. Thi…

Once again, the Liberal–National Coalition is attacking the ABC, and doing the bidding of News Corporation in its quest to remove the ABC from government ownership and sell if off to the highest bidder. And several state divisions of the Liberal Party – and all the Young Liberal branches – have already passed resolutions to privatise the ABC and it…
 
Australia is seeking national leadership at this point of time to ward off the threat of extremist behaviour in Melbourne but instead of trying to dampen the enthusiasm of QAnon, neo-Nazis, fascists, sovereign citizens and assorted fringe dwellers, Scott Morrison is hoping to hang onto their votes at the next federal election and he decided the bes…
 
I have to admit, I am a sucker for buying merchandise or ‘merch’ as we colloquially say in the land Down Under. Whether it be signed books by authors at their book launch or tea towels from a boutique vineyard on a regional holiday I am handing over that plastic card with joy! Last year, according to Intelligence Insider, the pandemic fueled rapid …
 
Noon is away this week dealing with a smol MH crisis, but never fear because robust fan favourite and peoples' champion Holly is back to celebrate No Knowledge November. Excitingly, we also have a new segment and sting for you! Also just a heads up that next week will be another unusual episode but it will have both Zac and Noon on it (unless somet…
 
Paul Keating was a hit at the National Press Club address during the week, but members of the federal government were not so happy about this. Because he spoke positively and realistically about China and Australia’s place in the world: which rubs against the grain of the government’s narrative of depicting China as a massive threat to Australia. A…
 
In this bonus episode to Remember the fallen, our host Jonny reflects on his personal connections with Remembrance and the connection between politics too. He remembers the fallen of WW1, as well as his very personal experience of repatriating a fallen comrade from Afghanistan- L/Cpl Oliver Thomas. What is not so well known are the stories of MPs, …

Jonny our host asks Peter about his military career, how he transitioned into becomin…
 
There won’t be a federal election in the short term, but that doesn’t mean campaigning can’t start early. It feels like the election campaign has already commenced, with Scott Morrison wanting to ‘move on’ from all the errors from the past and present his best face to the public. But this depends on the fine art of the political lie, of which Morri…

Zac's off this week, so Noon caught up with Mev, one of the organisers at Slutwalk Naarm/Melbourne. She chats with us about the history of the movement, consent, victim blaming, the word slut and the pros and cons of using it as part of a radical organisation, and more! We hope you love the show this week. Slutwalk Naarm/Melbourne is happening next…
 
The Prime Minister was reluctant to go to the COP26 climate change conference and it’s obvious to see why. To say it was a diplomatic disaster is an understatement and the more Scott Morrison makes politics all about him, the more he is exposed as an ineffective prime minister who appears to be severely out of his depth. It’s one thing to create a …
 
Veterans In Politics- Season 3, Episode 8 with Councillor James Rands We continue our look at veterans in local government with Liberal Democrat Councillor, James Rands. James is a former Regular Army Officer from the 1st Battalion, The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (PWRR) and continues to serve in 'The Tigers' today in the Reserve Army.. Jame…
 
What is Scott Morrison? A brand name? A theme, a hologram, a Prime Minister, an advertisement, a football coach?… or just a person? It’s hard to know, because Morrison reveals so little of who he actually is. But does it really matter? We reveal all in a conversation with Sean Kelly, discussing his brand new book, “The Game: A Portrait of Scott Mor…
 
Financial literacy is a term that excites some, but many people are hard-pressed to get excited about it, despite its importance in how we all view, manage and maximize our money, from our first pocket money as a kid to making retirement savings last these days for up to 30 years after we no longer earn a wage. My guest Julia Newbould is Managing E…
 
It's a newsy week and we've got a long newsy show for you all. This week we're serving up... Aperitifs: Crown Casino lose their license but also don't, featuring Noon singing. The Federal Government is trying to bring in voter ID laws. And Michael Leunig has been fired from the age. We also have a SPOTW for Meag's Leunig knock-off. Positivity Corne…
 
The Plan To Deliver Net Zero is much like the Morrison government: it’s insubstantial, inadequate, filled with political marketing and spin and, ultimately, does very little to act on climate change. It’s all about politics and directed at those people in the electorate who might be thinking about switching their vote away from the Liberal and Nati…
 
Water management and the policies behind it is something we all need to get our heads around, whether you live in a big city, small town, a coastal region or a remote community. I am deeply passionate about the water sector having worked closely within the NSW state government during the recent drought of 2018-2020, leading communications in areas …

The latest opinions polls show Scott Morrison is still on the nose and might have reached the point of no return. It’s currently 46% to the LNP and 54% to Labor in the two-party preferred voting and while it’s always possible for governments to make up ground, it is a difficult task. Morrison is looking panicked and a panicked prime minister will a…

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…

Grier Martin. Grier is a veteran of Afghanistan, and he and Jonny talk about how this experience motivated him to stand up and serve again in politics…
 
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…
 
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…
