A Very Cool and Normal Election

This podcast was recorded on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging.
The show notes were written on Dharawal land, we pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging.
We acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded by the First Nations people of this land.

G’day voters, and welcome to the show notes for episode 5 of 3 White Guys + Guest, a political podcast for a cynical nation.

This week our guest is Vinay Orekondy, a lawyer and activist, and someone Alan Jones described as a mongrel. And he’s headed to the US for the Primaries.

America is headed off a cliff, and everyone is pretending that this is cool and normal. We take a look at what’s really going on in the 2020 election.
