Democracy Sausage live! Australia’s election countdown

As Australians head to the polls, join Democracy Sausage host Mark Kenny and three outstanding guests for a sizzling live election event.

About this event

After months of anticipation, Australia’s political future is about to be decided.

So how have Scott Morrison and Anthony Albanese performed throughout the federal election campaign so far? Has either major party done enough to win victory in their own right on 21 May? And what do the candidates’ policy announcements tell us about the sort of government they’ll lead?

Join Democracy Sausage host Mark Kenny just days out from the election for a special live podcast recording at The Australian National University.

On the panel with Mark for the final episode before election day is Chief Political Reporter for Sky News Australia Kieran Gilbert, highly acclaimed author and researcher Emeritus Professor Judith Brett, and political scientist Dr Marija Taflaga.

Refreshments and democracy sausages served from 5.30pm, recording starts at 6.30pm.
