As well as her interviews with politicians and experts, Politics with Michelle Grattan includes “Word from The Hill”, where she discusses the news with members of The Conversation’s politics team.
In this podcast Michelle and politics + society editor Amanda Dunn discuss the PwC scandal, where the consulting firm broke a confidentiality agreement relating to planned taxation legislation by the Abbott government. They also canvass Mark McGowan’s quitting politics, Anthony Albanese’s trip to address the Shangri-la Dialogue, and the higher-than-expected inflation figure released from the Bureau of Statistics, which comes just before the Reserve Bank’s meeting on interest rates next Tuesday.
