Frank Bongiorno and Liz Allen join us to discuss the political challenges facing the Labor Party in the wake of its national conference and the upcoming Intergenerational Report.

How damaging is internal criticism within the Labor Party around the leadership’s positions on issues like AUKUS and climate change?

How has Anthony Albanese adapted as a leader on the path to the prime ministership and while in office?

And what might the next Intergenerational Report reveal about who we are and where we’re going as a nation?
