  • 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.

  • Perhaps misnamed.

    A significant number of stories about domestic politics, and a sprinkling of global news. Still, always enlightening news.

  • No back catalogue?

    The actual program is excellent and as a young person I actually get all my news here instead of from the radio or TV. more

  • Not quick enough!

    Even though the program is excellent, this is a very perishable news item. It needs to be posted no more than one hour after the actual broadcast to be useful. So far they are failing dismally.
