The state of the debate

10 May 2022

On this episode of Democracy Sausage, Frank Bongiorno, Marija Taflaga and Mark Kenny fire up the barbecue for the penultimate episode before election day.

Will the second prime ministerial debate of the election campaign go down as the worst ever? What might the record numbers of voters pre-polling mean for the major parties’ chances of winning government? And what might the future hold for the Labor, Liberal and National parties after the election? Historian Professor Frank Bongiorno joins Dr Marija Taflaga and Professor Mark Kenny on this episode of Democracy Sausage. Listen here.

Join Mark and our expert panel in the last week of the election campaign for our final Democracy Sausage live show before polling day. Refreshments will be served from 5.30pm and the show starts at 6.30pm. Tickets are free but registrations are essential.
