Jonny Bentley and Adam Bragan are two British twentysomethings with an interest in all things politics. Pints & Politics aims to deliver an analysis of Britain's politics in a fun and digestible manner, as if you were having the discussion in a British pub! Breaking down current affairs, debating ethical issues and looking at America from afar. Debating. Educating. Entertaining (hopefully!).
 
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.

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…
 
Since his retirement from parliament in 2012, Bob Brown has remained an activist on environmental causes - from campaigning against the Adani coal mine to fighting the threat to Tasmania’s Tarkine forest. Brown was leader when after the 2010 election the Greens helped Julia Gillard retain government by entering an agreement with her. A key part of …

Australia has become lockdown central, with its two largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, going into two different types of lockdowns – Sydney has a modified version where shops are still open and people seem to be able to freely move about (except for those migrant-working-class-Labor-voting-sub-classes in Fairfield), and Melbourne – a city which …

It's NAIDOC Week so we have a fully First Nations focussed episode. Our last few stories have heavy content warnings for the names of dead Indigenous people and discussion of police violence, which starts at about 41:20. Entree: What does NAIDOC stand for, and why does it stand for that? Check out this thread by Khadija Gbla: https://twitter.com/Kh…
 
Jonny and Gus break their big discussion into two parts. Part two is coming later in the week. Big Topic: Freedom day confirmed for July 19, meaning coronavirus restrictions are being (mostly) axed. Other topics: Rishi Sunak wants to raise pension by 8% but faces opposition, Universal Credit £20-per-week uplift and furlough scheme to be scrapped, C…
 
The Sydney lockdown continues into its third week and the Gladys Berejiklian show moves into the full public relations mode and spin cycle to get itself out of political trouble. It’s almost as though if the NSW Government put as much effort into managing the effects of COVID-19 as they put into media manipulation, there would be no lockdown to spe…
 
This week Katharine Murphy interviews former federal Liberal MP Julia Banks – the only member of her party to win a seat held by the opposition at the 2016 election. In her new book, Banks outlines the culture she faced in Canberra, including allegedly being inappropriately touched by a male Coalition MP at Parliament House…
 
Lukas Coch/AAP Barnaby Joyce’s sudden elevation to deputy prime minister has put a significant obstacle in the way of Scott Morrison’s creep this year to a commitment to a net zero 2050 target. More generally, it has made internal Coalition relations more unpredictable. In this podcast Joyce reiterates his opposition to embracing the target, while …

We're taking a week off so we're playing our very popular bonus episode in which Zac finally talks about veganism at length! The challenge was to talk about it "from a non-entitled wanker point of view" which I think Zac managed to do admirably. This isn't an hour long rant about how meat eating is evil, it's more like an hour long rant about how m…
 
Jonny and Gus come in with a bumper episode that has to negate the usual US section. Big Topic: Matt Hancock debacle unpacked. Where does this leave the legitimacy of the UK Government? Other Topics: Booster jabs prepped for the Autumn and the Winter, Gavin Williamson wants a ban on mobiles in schools, Boris Johnson and Sajid Javid want quick end t…
 
The NSW Government’s ‘gold standard’ in COVID management has soured into a more tarnished puce colour, with Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s reluctance to shut down Sydney a week earlier, resulting in a more protracted lockdown than would otherwise have been required. Aside from the extra billions of dollars it will cost the NSW economy, it took a full…
 
This week Katharine Murphy interviews Nationals senator Matt Canavan on Australia’s climate wars. The Nationals’ reinstated party leader, Barnaby Joyce, is an outspoken critic of policies that address climate change and target net zero, so how does the party justify its stance? Why is it fighting the inevitable global transition to renewables?…

Lukas Coch/AAP The government’s response to the UNESCO recommendation that the Great Barrier Reef be listed as “in danger” was one of surprise and shock. The recommendation will be considered at UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee meeting next month. While the proposal calls attention to the need to address the effect of climate change and other fact…
 
Australia could have been close to reaching herd immunity but a poor Australian government decision to turn its back on an excellent Pfizer deal means the national level of vaccination is at 3%, one of the lowest rates in the world. The anger in the medical community is palpable, but will the electorate blame the government for this error? And, for…

Mick Tsikas/AAP Senator Rex Patrick is currently challenging the secrecy around Scott Morrison’s national cabinet. He’s brought legal action – the outcome is pending – to attempt to have the minutes of this body, which includes federal, state and territory leaders, made public. The government claims the documents are protected by an exemption for c…
 
Victoria will complete a two-week lockdown soon but if the Morrison government had done its job properly on quarantine management and the vaccination rollout, the lockdown – which will cost around $2 billion in lost revenues and other expenses – may have been avoided. And it’s nobody’s fault, except for the fault of the Morrison government. And the…
