||ExplicitGreat Highly-Paid Job, Michael Sukkar (with Richard Cooke)||This week's podcast asks whether we can afford housing and burnimgcoal burning as Richard Cooke (The Monthly) joins us to explain why the Coalition might be tricking Labor into that ol' creeping socialism – and his grand plan to invade WA.

||CleanBaby, It's Coal Outside (with Maddie Palmer)||Ever get the sense that our parliamentarians are fiddling while Australia burns... even more coal? Then again, those lumps ARE fun to play with in Parliament! Dom, APS and writer/broadcaster Maddie Palmer wonder why the Coalition is so determined to run to the right with Forrest Gump-like speed and mental acuity. And consider where the WA Nationals fit into that increasingly crowded sector of our political spectrum.||14 2 2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanCory Reactor Meltdown (with Dee Madigan)||Parliament's back in action, and so are we for another year of #auspol a-banterin'! Political strategist Dee Madigan (Gruen, PM Live) joins APS and Dom to make sense of Cory Bernardi's departure from the Liberal Party and assess the ever-louder spill rumours – with Dutton rumoured to be loading his spud gun, can the PM stick around for a full term?||6 2 2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitA Very Double Disillusioned Christmas (with Alice Workman and Dan Ilic)||What a year. No, really, what a year. In our final episode for 2016, Dan Ilic (Fusion) and Alice Workman (BuzzFeed) join APS and Dom from LA* and Canberra respectively to look back on a year strangely full of elections, and strangely devoid of substantive change, both home and abroad, when Canberrans were forced to roll, roll, roll towards freedom... Catch you all in 2017 when the politickin' resumes, and in the meantime, have a great pointedly non-Christian holiday/pro-Christmas uprising. And thanks for listening in 2016. * He was back for Christmas anyway, but it sounds more glamorous if we suggest he flew home specially.||20 12 2016||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanThe Shear Genius of Rod Culleton (with Jacqueline Maley)||Sure, senators are getting referred to the High Court with dizzying rapidity, and we'll discuss that – but the big news is that the Australian Border Force has a podcast, available in both audible AND TRANSCRIPT form. Fairfax's Jacqueline Maley joins Dom and APS – in a wig freshly-shorn from a sheep's belly – to help us judge.

Worth a Listen
Andrew P Street has been a favourite columnist for a few years now so I can now hear his spoken thoughts besides reading them. I've found the podcast informative and enjoyable. I particularly liked the episode with Dee Madigan. Great insights but I didn't like her conclusions, even if she is right.
Top notch analysis with an excellent sense of humour
Great guests, knowledgeable hosts and plenty of yucks without dumbing down the content.
Step back a bit blokes
Not a bad Australian political podcast; at times it can be on par with most of the other popular ones. But these blokes sometimes think they're the funniest people in the world, and they can get in the way of a useful and interesting conversation with their guests. Jacqueline Maley discussion on ABF is good example. Less wisecracks gents; it was painful to listen to Ms Maley try to make a coherent point.
