  • Could be more concise

    A decent consolidation of topics but way too much rambling on especially with interviewed guests. Dismayed to hear the story on covid impact in India devolved quickly into and inward facing diatribe on impact to cricket of all things. Would be better advised to discuss what is being done to help India and their citizens deal with the crisis and forget cricket.

  • AM, RN Brekky, World Today, PM, Drive et al. Sabra, Linda, Sally, Fran, Bevo, Hamish ... all y'all ABC current affairs crew - thanks for years of transparent, factual, thoughtful reporting. Stand firm, keep a straight face (except for the Nats - can't help but laugh) you do represent the majority despite efforts of the IPA and Scomo's office load of rent seekers. Can't imagine the info landscape without you. Lots of love Matt.
