This week on Something Wonky, Gough. And then all of the stuff that’s not as good as Gough, which is pretty much all of Australian politics. And one of our favourite segments returns as Erin Riley takes a turn at What’s Stuck in my Craw.

#113 - Citation Needed

This week on Something Wonky, Stop The Press looks at The Courier Mail’s salacious treatment of murder victim Mayang Prasetyo. Australia versus humanity is still terrible. The Focus Group asks, “Who are we keeping safe?”, finds our government is still incompetent, and does the war bit.
