Episode 42: Cash Wednesday

2018-05-3000:50:10

Michaelia Cash has been reissued with a subpoena for the AWU’s court challenge against the raids on their offices last October. What does it mean (nothing really, we don’t have a court date). ALSO we finally get to the truth of the infamous WHITEBOARD incident. Revenue and financial services minister Kelly O’Dwyer joins us to talk Barnaby Joyce, super, and whether Australia should follow Ireland and decriminalise abortion. Also, political reporters Amy Remeikis from the Guardian Australia, Myles Morgan from SBS and Rachel Baxendale from The Australian drop in for a chat.
Here’s one we (partially) recorded earlier! Nick’s filling in for Lane while she’s on holidays.It’s episode two of our Twitter show #BFOzPol LIVE from the BuzzFeed bunker in Parliament House, on a sitting week Wednesday at 11am. Labor senator Kimberley Kitching takes the $7 Bunnings suits worn by Parliament House security officers for a road test. Tom McIllroy from the Financial Review gives us the lowdown on Senate #estimates … including the tale of punter “Bluey”, who was fined $250 for flipping off Malcolm Turnbull after he claimed the PM cut in line at the pub. Also, Kylar Loussikian from the Daily Telegraph and Phoebe Wearne from The West Australian join our journo panel!
A quick update from Alice about a super exciting project happening on 09 May, the morning after Scott Morrison’s not-Christmas-in-May Budget. #BFOzPol

Episode 39: 29 Not Out

Privyet! Malcolm Turnbull has lost his 29th Newspoll in a row, but somehow the Australian cricket team's had a worse week. Also, foreign minister Julie Bishop booted two Russians, who may or may not be spies, out of the country. We’ll let the Russian ambassador to Australia explain. And Pauline Hanson has a HALAL warning for anyone buying chocolate this holiday season. Happy Easter!
Episode 38: Dead To Me

Episode 38: Dead To Me

2018-03-2300:30:34

Alice faces off against minister Michaelia Cash at a press conference in Parliament House. It only lasted a minute, but was pretty lit. Also, Peter Dutton says the “crazy lefties” at the ABC are dead to him over their reporting about farmers in South Africa. Oh, and Lane doesn’t know who Steve Martin (famous actor and comedian) is. Outrageous.
Michaelia Cash literally hid behind a whiteboard after threatening to publicly name all the young women in Bill Shorten’s office that she’s heard ~rumours~ about. Yes, that really happened. We’ll explain why. Also we have the latest update on the AFP raids on the AWU offices which saw an adviser from Cash’s office resign last year. Alice spoke to a journalist who claims they received a tip-off about the raids from then justice minister Michael Keenan’s office. Oh yeah and we have a new deputy prime minister. A week in politics is a LONG time!
