Jonathan Green is a veteran journalist and broadcaster who presents at the ABC and edits the literary magazine Meanjin

He's been working as a journo since the late 70s so I thought he'd be a good person to reflect on how the political media is serving us in 2019 (hint: it's not). We talk about exactly why Jonathan thinks politics is "bollocks", the corrosive influence of the Murdoch media empire and whether there's anything to do about it, the smallness of the "Lucky Country" and the challenges ahead for progressive politics.
