  • Inside Politics

    Absolutely loved the Inside Politics episode. In an age where listeners are inundated with different political commentary podcasts, I loved how this discussion went back to basics. Summarised the issue, its history & context in contemporary discussions, which then lead to a really rational, calm & thorough analysis with no unnecessary dramatics. Looking forward to the next episode already!

We’re not going to war with China. If we were going to war with China, you’re all wrong. Militarily downscaling and removing ourselves from America’s lap where we sit like an obedient dog wou... more
