How we got to here

Webinar 1 December 21 • 6:00pm AEDT

Crikey readers are no stranger to the political prose of Guy Rundle, who has been engaging and challenging our readers since 2007.

Join Crikey’s Charlie Lewis as he chats with Guy Rundle on his new book, which focuses on the past decade in Australia.

The ten years from 2010 to 2020, Guy believes he has witnessed a country changing and fracturing, due to the global wave of populism that has swept across conventional politics, and solidified the culture wars.
