Buckle into Crikey’s time machine; we’re heading forward a week to the first sitting day of the Abbott government. Who will be the weakest link, and what should Labor focus on? Crikey deputy editor Cathy Alexander and Canberra correspondent Bernard Keane talk these things through, plus climate change, emissions targets and repealing the carbon tax.

Crikey Calling is independent media for independent minds – in handy podcast form! Join the Crikey crew for a lively (if somewhat wonky) look behind the scenes of politics and power in Australia.

Learn about 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.
