Margo Kingston, Peter Clarke and Tim Dunlop come together to talk through the transitions and transformations happening in the world at the moment as we all deal with Covid-19 pandemic. With regular guests from a range of occupations and disciplines, with minds wide open, and a heartfelt desire to see the best of what is possible at this weird moment in the history of the world, we hope #transitzone becomes your alt podcast of choice. #transitzone theme is by Ivan Clarke © at Pang Productions.

IT HAS BEEN looming for months but now it is upon us in all its febrile intensity and messiness: the federal election 2022.

The #transitzone team, Tim Dunlop, Margo Kingston and Peter Clarke discuss the out-of-the-blocks phase of the campaign.

It hasn’t been pretty, especially the media coverage which has focussed largely on “gaffes” and journalism “gotchas”.

The discussion’s nub is about democracy itself and its future in Australia and the role and influence of the centre-right, “Voices for” independents in the unfolding alchemy of the campaign’s electoral politics and what some of them may face, if elected, and there is a “hung” (or “deliberative”) parliament as the election’s outcome.

The #transitzone team examines and critiques the approach of the media and the “quality” of political journalism we have seen so far in this campaign.
