Listen to Will the Australian Government transition away from Carbon and Corruption?59:3229 March 2021

On this episode of The Grapevine, Kulja and Dylan get on the line with former chief scientist of Australia, Dr Alan Finkel AO, to discuss the challenges facing Australia reaching carbon neutral and to unpack the comprehensive roadmap he laid out in the Quarterly Essay ‘Getting To Zero, Australia’s Energy Transition’.

Then, Crickey’s politics editor, Bernard Keane, wades through the muck seeping out of Canberra to talk about their new series ‘The Dirty Country’, reporting on corruption in Australia and within Australian politics.

And Associate Professor Leach Ruppanner from Melbourne University explains new research into the experience of women in local government highlighting that toxic workplace culture is not isolated to Canberra, and ‘Just like Federal MPs, women in local government cop it all’.
