View from The Round House with Martin Drum – #8 Albo, Penny and the ‘Admiral’.

Welcome back to our politics podcast, View From The Round House With Martin Drum.

Can you believe it, we’re nearly 4 weeks into the new Government in Canberra, and well over 12 months into the life of the new State Government of Mark ‘Admiral’ McGowan?

Today, our editor, Michael Barker, discusses with Professor Martin Drum in this, #8 in our podcast series, how these new Governments are travelling. For one, Albo appears to have achieved levels of popularity not seen since Kevin Rudd’s ascension to the top political job in Canberra in 2007. But who’d want to deal with Energy Policy? And Penny Wong seems to be earning frequent flyer points at a great rate. But who’d want to take on China? And the Opposition’s shadow cabinet is in Perth. Just why is that?

Martin Drum is Professor of Politics and International Relations at Notre Dame University, Fremantle and a well know political pundit. You’ll want to hear just what Martin thinks!
