On this week's episode Stephen Donnelly sits down with the Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern.

Jacinda took the reins of New Zealand Labour just seven weeks out from the general election and immediately had a momentous impact on the campaign and led Labour into a position to form a coalition government with NZ First and the Greens Party.

She talked about her ascendancy to leader, her treatment by the media during the campaign, the priorities of her government and her outrageous claims on Crowded House.

Stephen Donnelly sits down with economist and former Hungarian Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai. He talks about growing up under communism, his elevation to lead his nation through the global financial crisis and the future of the European Union.

 

 

 

This week Nicola chats with her old boss Minister for Public Transport and Major Projects Jacinta Allan.

Conrad is joined by Shadow Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, for Tourism, and Cities. Anthony Albanese and they discuss the weekends Northcote by-election loss and what the means for the Labor party more broadly, growing up in a single parent family and Anthony’s career to date.




In the final week of the campaign, Stephen Donnelly sits down with Labor's Clare Burns to catch up on the tight contest in Northcote as she makes the final push towards election day. Clare reflects on the campaign so far, the amazing people she has met, the important issues she’s campaigned on and the less important ones like Fake Vegan and Secret Cat that preoccupy our opponents time.

On this week's episode, Member for Richmond Richard Wynne and Secretary of Residents for Victoria Street Drug Solutions, Judy Ryan, join Nicola to discuss the Andrews Labor Government’s planned trial of a safe injecting facility in North Richmond.

Stephen Donnelly is joined by the AWU's Ben Davis following last week's raid by the Australian Federal police on his union office.

Ben gives a detailed account of the raid on his West Melbourne office, the political motivations behind the raid and the murky collusion and amateurish cover-up by a conservative government desperate to not talk about itself.



Conrad French spoke with Senator Sam Dastyari about his experience coming to Australia, the migrant identity, the 2005 Cronulla riots and discusses his successes and controversies in politics.

Who are Millie, Grant and Tash? A Trades Hall campaigner at the Young Workers Centre; a letter-boxer who was once too shy to talk to voters; and a young person whose family home was compulsorily acquired for the dud East-West Link - they've all got a different reason for campaigning for Labor's Clare Burns in the Northcote By-Election.
