Folks, running a radio station ain’t cheap and another year has gone by without the implementation of fully automated luxury space communism, so we gots to pay the bills.
3CR is a desperately needed audio oasis in the vast and unyielding desert of mediocrity that is the Australian media landscape – they truly give space for voices that don’t get a look-in anywhere else on the airwaves, and it’s critical that we support them.
On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah Pasaran! on 3CR we talk to Jordan McSwiney [Twitter]. Jordan is a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance at the University of Canberra. We spoke to him about Pauline Hanson, her One Nation Party, the 2022 Australian federal election, the Australian far right (and Australian media), ‘How Good is Western Civilisation?’ and more.
