We check in with our comrades around the Western world, charting the fortunes of Daddy Bernie in the US and Corbyn in the UK. We then complete a seven-minute Brexit questionnaire, and finish off by discovering the sexual fantasies of various political party supporters in Australia and the UK.
Max, Jo, Calum and Amy discuss low-carbon, post-work futures, critiques of the Green New Deal, what 'luxury' means to socialists, and Jeffrey Epstein's tragic suicide. We're joined (at about the 55 minute mark) by Tom from Extinction Rebellion, for an interview about XR's strategy and tactics.
We explore the structural decline of the Australian Labor Party. What are the historical and political-economic reasons behind Labor's slow death? Why hasn't Australian Labor had its Corbyn moment? And what comes next?
We dial in special Rural and Regional Correspondent Mick (@catastrophemick) to talk about the election result in central Queensland, the Adani coal mine, the regional Change the Rules campaign, and the difficulties of trying to do politics without actually being political.
Why do we think about time the way we do? What does it have to do with modern labour and capitalism? And what are the possibilities for harnessing the concept of time for radical left politics?
What is the NDIS, how does it change the disability service model, and what are its underlying principles and assumptions?
Radio Reversal crosses live to Camp Freedom to talk with with organisers from Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance and the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy..
