Playwright, commentator and activist Van Badham is back on the podcast after she joined me in July of 2015.
Since then Van has been a passionate advocate for the re-election of a Labor government and a scathing critic of The Australian Greens. I was keen to dig further into her thinking on that and ask her what she thought went wrong in the 2019 federal election (the answer might surprise you). Van mounts a vigorous defence of Labor's policies here and explains why she sees it as the major hope for the socialist Left in Australia.
Plus also you will hear her dog barking in the background.
