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.
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.
