Ryan, Declan, Jo and an anonymous staffy talk about how to win votes and influence people via the life-changing magic of doorknocking. We discuss political education for both voters and volunteers; repoliticising the everyday; and overcoming alienation and elitism.
We talk about ScoMo's attempt at populism, Australian political trajectories, and in a total surprise move, why the Labor Party is terrible.
Max, Abe, Ryan, Jo, and Calum convene an emergency podcast to discuss the #libspill. Followed by a seamless segue into climate politics: what are the failures of the contemporary climate movement, and what would a radical left climate politics look like?
It's time for a very special episode of Floodcast, all about BALLS. Specifically, football(s). Max and Darby discuss Darby's experience at the World Cup in Russia, the Western Sydney Wanderers' fan strikes, their predictions for the English Premier League season and the broader problems in Australian football.
We're joined by Liam Flenady, the organiser of Brisbane's recent Marx200 Conference, to discuss debates and ideas arising from the conference and from contemporary Marxist thought more broadly. But first: the News feat. Labor politicians changing from within, Italy's looming crisis, and Kanye as empty signifier.
