It’s our annual quick turnaround, late night 2021 Budget Wrap episode! Child Care, Aged Care, Pretending to Care…. we break down the Coalition’s Labor Budget in case you fell asleep from too many low tax craft beers (valid!)

You loved the 2019 “Back in Black Budget” and the 2020 “Cushion The Blow Budget” – this is the “Blow the Budget Budget”. Tune in as Treasurer Josh Frydenberg steals Labor’s mojo by spending like there’s no tomorrow, which for Labor there might not be! We break down all the big policy announcements in aged care, child care, housing affordability, infrastructure and of course, craft beer (which we’ll all probably need to drink many of after finishing this episode!) Laugh endlessly as Sky News embraces “debt and deficit” because why not?!

News Fighters is a comedic look at the week in Australian news, media and political hypocrisy, hosted by ex-Tonightly and Chaser editor Dylan Behan.

Happy Beef Week everyone! It’s been a big week for news too. We look at the Morrison government threatening to jail anyone returning from India, then backing down while Andrew Bolt only just realises Australia might be racist. Then we recap the thrills and spills of the Tasmanian state election campaign. And finally Bec Melrose drops by to look at Biden’s first 100 days and discuss Scott Morrison’s pentecostal beliefs in his speech to the Australian Christian Churches conference.

Hey it’s the bonus News Fighters ep for April! With outtakes galore from the past month! We cover Scott Morrison’s outburst accusation at Sky News from his tear-filled press conference at the end of March. Also we check in with Canadian Premier Doug Ford who despite opposing sick leave is currently isolating at home. And outtakes from our interviews with Canadaland podcaster Jonathan Goldsbie and comedian Michael Chamberlin.

This week we take a deep dive into the crisis around the third wave of Covid-19 in Canada, where a battle is raging between vaccinations and variants, and the leader of the biggest province of Ontario, Doug Ford, is seemingly asleep at the wheel.

Our interview guest is Jonathan Goldsbie, news editor at the website Canadaland and co-host of the monthly podcast all about Doug Ford, Wag The Doug.

First this week we say “cheers” to Prince Philip who passed away at age 99 last week and answer the big question of “Who is Prince Philip?”. Then jump to the front of the queue as we do a deep dive into the messy history of Australia’s botched vaccine rollout… and why putting all our eggs in one (or so) baskets has meant you won’t be getting jabbed anytime soon!

This week we have an in-depth look at Scott Morrison trying to fix his “women problem” by reshuffling his male-dominated cabinet around so hopefully you lose track of who’s currently scandal plagued and who isn’t.

Also we look at the end of Jobkeeper, the Brisbane outbreak and the fumbling vaccine rollout.

Then RAW Comedy Winner Bec Melrose joins us to talk the Suez Canal blockage, the H&M China boycott and ScoMo at the footy!
