#45 Dreamers and Nuclear Reality
With the postal vote having been approved by the High Court, and a new Fair Work bill having passed parliament affecting franchise underpayments, your original correspondents (and good audio quality) are back in the one place to discuss those domestic issues.

#44 Charlottesville and Burqas (Apologies for audio: see description)
This episode was recorded while our usual audio equipment was out of commission. We recorded one anyway to see how it would go and were pretty disappointed with the result. We'll have our regular gear back next episode. We've decided to upload the episode, but with fair warning that we think it's below our usual standard. We won't promote this one on social media so keep your eyes peeled for a return to usual business soon when we post a higher quality episode. In this one, we discussed the NZ election, Charlottesville, Pauline Hanson and the Burqa, and s44 ("the dual citizenship provisions") of the Constitution.

We also consider the 20th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong from UK to China, tensions in the Greens and Liberal Parties with their rogue MPs... and the strange story of Malcolm Turnbull, defamation law and a dead cat.

#40 The Spirit of Politics and Macron
Despite constant criticism/praise that Turnbull is supposedly "moving the liberals to the Left" the Coalition has gone and scrapped 457 visas and toughened up the citizenship test!

#38 The Longevity of Far Right Populism
We continue to reach new heights and unforeseen surprises as our self-identified far-right recurring guest, Daniel returns and compares Nelson Mandela to Pauline Hanson. On this episode, we talk about the closing of Hazelwood, the failed attempt to amend 18C, and the bill in the Upper House to protect penalty rates from the Fair Work Commission's proposed changes.

#34 Does Equality result in the Soviet Union?
Nothing will ever be the same since Trump unleashed his first solo press conference in the world. Satire is dead. You are now living in the hyper-real. But one thing remains - Continuity and Change is here, and we follow up the latest in Australian politics and debate the proposition put to us, by our guest, James - that a belief in equality leads to totalitarianist Soviet rule.

#33 The Australian Conservatives
According to the Sydney Morning Herald and the ANU, this is the cross-section of the population that Continuity and Change represents. With Bernardi having left to create the Australian Conservatives, Turnbull attempting to channel shades of Paul Keating with his sledging, and and Scott Morrison having brought a lump of coal into parliament, there's a lot to talk about this week.

#29 Inconsistencies and Defections
On this episode, the hosts debate: Can you be economically right-wing and socially progressive? Does putting the Liberals first and the Greens second make any sense? We also explore the continuing news fodder of One Nation, with MPs defecting from the Liberal party to them, while their candidates dispute the existence of the Port Arthur massacre. We also touch on Australia's relationship with Japan and whether the TPP has a future.
