The week in Australian news and news from around the world brought to you by James Colley and Nick Fischer who firmly believe that the highest quality news analysis is that which is yelled the loudest. Inspired by your posts, produced by Bryce Halliday.

You might have heard that the Australian cricket team has been in some hot water lately. James and Nick offer some exclusive coverage. Malcolm Turnbull is fast approaching the "30 Negative News Polls" noose he tied for himself. Also for some reason we're talking about a Chinese satellite. 

Produced by Bryce Halliday.

This week Peter Dutton showed us he has a soft spot for a very specific brand of refugee. Richard Di Natale quite accurately claimed that Australia's ever extending bushfire season might have something to do with climate change. And the Greens didn't do too well in the Batman bielection.

Greg Norman got us an exemption on steel tariffs, maybe through the power of golf? And South Australia goes to the polls this week.

That was about it this week. Does it show? Who's to say.

It's been a couple of pretty slow and heinous weeks in the news but we've come back on a banner week for Stop The Posts! Malcom Turnbull has lost 28 news polls in a row. The Liberal government won in Tasmania. And Michaelia Cash hid behind a whiteboard earlier this week. Terrific stuff.

This week Lyle Shelton has joined the Australian Conservatives. It's Labor vs Greens for the seat of Batman… ne-ne ne-ne ne-ne ne-ne… and businesses aren't happy about the idea of paying their employees more, imagine that.

The Australian government wants to be a major weapons exporter… yay? NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance doesn't believe in democracy… when it comes to boat naming. And in a rare positive story from us, Sydney Uni is going to start teaching consent. I'm sure the comments will all be lovely.

Got some classic culture war schtick for you this week: Queensland drivers licenses won't need to list your gender any more, Mark Latham has launched a strange ad in order to save Australia Day, and Sydney train drivers are going on strike next week, but how hard can that job really be? Hoo boy.

Just before you count down 10 to 1, take a moment to reflect on what an exhausting clusterfluck Australian politics has been in the last 6 months.

James and Nick are together in the studio again at last to recap the news from July to December.

Good lord what a terrible year. Here and abroad. James and Nick recap the top news stories that happened in the first half of 2017. And you know what? Enough garbage fires have happened since the January-May garbage fires that you've probably forgotten most of them! Isn't that fun.
