Reproductive Rights Show

The Nerds’s first show of the election season beings with Sophie Mirabella clearing the decks with her claim that $10 million wasn’t spent in her former electorate, but then digs deep into:

  • The status of reproductive rights in Australia with Dr Helen Pringle from the School of Social Sciences, UNSW Australia,
  • US-Australian relations, and new research about the relationship between politics and the emotions with Dr Lloyd Cox, and
  • Federalism debates with Professor Anne Twomey of the University of Sydney’s Law School

“It’s a spending problem!” show

In which the Nerds explore the performance, practical and rhetorical, of Malcolm Turnbull, discuss Australian welfare policy’s function and effectiveness, and a new book on Religious tolerance and repression in the United States.
