Ep 16: Vote Early and Vote Often

May 8, 2019

The ALP has recommitted to an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, what will this actually turn out to be, and why does this divisive policy never go away? (1:42-15:36) The Adani mine enters it sixth year since approval but still is in purgatory, why won't governments let it be built? (15:36-29:24) And the millionth early voter will cast their ballot today - does early voting help or hurt our democracy? (29:24-42:32) Dr Chris Berg and Scott Hargreaves are joined by Andrew Bushnell and Morgan Begg to discuss these issues and share what they've been reading and watching this week, including Persecution and Tolerance, Cracks in the Ivory Towers, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism and Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
