Note: This episode was recorded hours before the courageously-timed Friday 6pm announcement of Djokovic’s visa cancellation.
Politicians need glam squads too. Emerald and Tom want your AMAs (2:58). The dumb Novak Djokovic visa drama (5:14) and will it help fix our real refugee horrors? If NSW is Footlose then Hillsong is Kevin Bacon (21:58). Greens candidate for Cooper in Melbourne, Celeste Liddle joins to talk fake progressives, Labor thinking it owns seats, and the Sovereign Citizen attack on Old Parliament House (28:30). Finally a call to action (48:27).
