Shhhh... Australia's next top secrets
🎙️ NEW PODCAST: Kate McClymont, Damien Cave, Amber Schultz, Lewis Hobba, Dan Ilic + David McBride
Here’s a dangerous podcast for you about Australian secrecy.
It’s so secret, we performed it live on stage last weekend at the Festival Of Dangerous Ideas, recorded it, and delivered it over a carriage service, to your inbox here.
Australia is the most secretive liberal democracy in the world. We ask how Australia went from being “She’ll be right” to “No comment”.
On this very special edition of A Rational Fear we bring together some big names in journalism, comedy and whistleblowing to examine what went wrong with Australian Secrecy.
David McBride — Afghan Files Whistleblower
Kate McClymont — Sydney Morning Herald
Damien Cave — New York Times
Amber Schults — Crikey
Dan Ilic — A Rational Fear
Lewis Hobba — Government Employee
