This podcast was recorded on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. This intro was recorded on the lands of the Darug people. We pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging.
G’day voters, this is the inaugural episode of 3 White Guys + Guest, a political podcast for a cynical nation.
We had a couple of teething issues for this first one, not too bad hopefully, but we should be on top of this in the future. Going forward, this should *hopefully* be a fortnightly podcast, depending on what’s happening in the world.
This will likely be the longest episode we put out, simply because there was so much to consider in the wake of Labor shitting their pants like a failed ad man in a southern Sydney Maccas.
It was supposed to be the unloseable election. This is why we can’t have nice things.
You can cop all our details in the show notes.
Sean McCallum works two odd jobs because a guy can’t get a break in this town. He has always had a soft spot for the underdog and someday hopes to see the world saved from being burned alive. In his spare time he writes music and his masters in film production means he is qualified to work for exposure.
Nick Mack is a former hack who spent too long in the horrible digital newsrooms of two of Australia’s biggest commercial networks, writing yarns for jerks before reporting on social media outrage became too much and he needed to adjust his horizons. Now he works for a trade union, fighting the good fight and musing that hopefully one day we’ll have revolution.
Dean Cool is the online pseudonym of a man tired of fighting over scraps while the political class grow fat on our labour. He dropped out of university with honours and after years of online bitching, started writing about politics the day Tony Abbott became Prime Minister. To date, his greatest single accomplishment was winning a t-shirt in a jellybean guessing competition.
The theme music is The Hill by Pax Canis.
