Crikey Calling is independent media for independent minds – in handy podcast form! Join the Crikey crew – including Canberra correspondent Bernard Keane, the country’s sharpest political commentator – for a lively (if somewhat wonky) look behind the scenes of politics and power in Australia.
Know what’s really happening in Canberra and around the country as we chew on the biggest national affairs issues of the week, dissecting the politics, policy and players as only the Crikey newsroom can.
In a big surprise, Julia Gillard has announced the 2013 election date. Today on Crikey Calling, Bernard Keane and deputy editor Cathy Alexander discuss the decision, what it means and Labor’s chances of making a comeback.
