Jess and Charlie chat with Alan Kohler, long time financial analyst for the ABC and all-round Finance journalist across a number of Australian publications, including The Financial Review, Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. Together, they navigate recent reporting into the Reserve Bank, interest rates and the cost of living crisis, as well as whether the Australian public is interested in the somewhat opaque world of finance.  

Plus, Jess and Charlie also dig into some of the big media stories of the week including Bluesfest's PR blunders, ABC fact-checking and Linda Reynolds launching defamation action against Brittany Higgins' partner David Sharaz.
