Our never-ending wars in failed states

Delta in NSW. Australia in Afghanistan.

Greetings infidels!

In part one of the podcast this week I examine the fall of Afghanistan, the lack of preparation from Australia after TWENTY YEARS and the eternal question of war: ‘Was it worth it?’

Then I look at Australia’s losing war against the Delta Strain. Has Gladys Berejiklian given up? Why is Scott Morrison so bad at inspiration speeches? Can the NSW Police reboot the Police Academy franchise? And why does Jungle Cruise look like such a bad movie?

Also this week I appeared on the great Sanspants literary(ish) podcast Book(ish) with George Dimarelos where I discussed my love of news comedy, my career as TV editor and underpaid streetpress journalist and one of my favourite hedonistic books The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson. Listen on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
