The Looking Forward Podcast

Episode 52 - Sanders: Back To The Future!

February 26, 2020

Scott Morrison’s religious freedom bill has been labelled confusing, inappropriate, unfair and unloved; so is it finally dead? (1:34-20:07) When Bernie Sanders has a lock on the Democrat nomination, is his support for Castro’s Cuba just the tip of a communist iceberg ? (20:07-34:10) Looking Forward was at the Senate inquiry into nationhood, national identity and democracy, and asks if the High Court hasn’t hijacked the proces? (34:10-50:00) Your hosts Scott Hargreaves and Dr Chris Berg are joined by the IPA’s Morgan Begg and RMIT University’s Dr Aaron Lane to answer these questions and dive into their culture picks including Marielle Heller’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood, the podcast Verdict with Ted Cruz, Victor Kravchenko’s I Chose Freedom and Clint Eastwood’s Richard Jewel. (50:00-1:09:24)
