New Politics podcast
New Politics is a politics and current affairs audio program, comprising analysis of Australian politics, and is released as a weekly podcast.
The content is generally based on the events in federal and national politics from the preceding week, but also takes into account longer-term issues regarding climate change, economics, media and education.
Jokovich and Lewis are frequently critical of neoliberalism and centre-right political parties in Australia, highlighting failures in government privatisation policies, free market economics, as well as criticism of the domination of conservative influences in the mainstream media.
It is funded independently through crowd-funding, and audience donations and support.
