The Party Room

Congratulations!! I’ve been going back through all your old podcasts (I’m new to podcasts) and with the benefit of hindsight you sure didn’t miss much. I absolutely love the ABC and I thank my lucky stars that journalists like yourselves and the Institution of the ABC exists to shine light on how our political system is operating and issues that need to be brought to the attention of the community. Thankyou ABC and all who sail in her and a huge thumbs up to The Party Room.

Such intelligent content and discussions

The conversation is intelligent, yet accessible if you are out of the loop. I love this round up of all things politics and Fran and Patricia are just an absolute delight to listen to. I love their insight and that they are more than happy to question and disagree. I especially love when they have other female journo guests.

Two of the best

Love, love, love this podcast. Political commentary that’s thoughtful, fair, comprehensive and a bit of fun as well, delivered by two of the best journalists. Really enjoying question time and it’s always a bonus when Fran gives us a song

Barnaby off the hook??

Hey guys, I love the podcast guys - you are incredible journalists and am a huge fan of both of you!I was puzzled how easy you guys went on Barnaby with respect the Nationals drought response recently; he was the envoy for the drought and I heard reporting indicating that he produced very little if anything of value whilst in that role yet he is out claiming (unconscionably) the moral high ground on this issue from One Nation. The politics of this are undeniably tawdry, however I was puzzled as to why Barnaby’s commission on drought policy in the past years was so overlooked in your discussions?

The Party Room 31/10

I love this chat each week - it always gives me something else to consider in this contested space of Australian politics. However yesterday’s program was a a real standout. I worked in the Indigenous space for many years and for the life of me I cannot see why constitutional recognition is so hard. Fran and Patricia you really shone a bright torch on this torturous process. Thank you. All power to Marcia and Tom as once again they pick themselves up and dust themselves off to once again try and get this done. Haha as a public policy nerd o also confess to watching estimates. I thought this years ones were particularly dreadful with the lack of preparation and obfuscation. Thanks again for the way you live, eat and breathe politics.

Females Bringing Politics to Life

Thank you so much I follow both of you and the ABC and politics but I have fallen out of love with politics I blame Christopher Pyne (for leaving) but I get to stay in touch with the character I love and the journalist that I read with your familiar and friendly voices it makes politics manageable again. Thank you so much love the format love the coverage love the relevance.

Biased

Unfortunately what was originally an objective and informative podcast has now become a biased diatribe about Fran’s world view particularly in relation to climate politics. Unsubscribe.

Gossip & waffle

Fran tries valiantly but this podcast is filled with insider waffle that serves only to amplify the views of political operatives in Canberra. It assumes that politicians and the journos that hang around them are in the best position to understand the national political situation. If you have limited time download the guardian oz podcast instead

It’s representative of the broader Australian Media

This show is like fairy floss, it's sweet but there isn't much substance to it.It’s extremely clear that both of the hosts have friendships with the politicians they are supposed to be holding to account. These relationships reach across both the major parties. Don't expect deep analysis or the broader context of political issues, this is targeted at the day to day of Australian politics, covering it like a sporting event.
