    A new era in Australian politics

    Australians fired the prime minister on Saturday, and did some significant rearranging of the furniture in Canberra while they were at it. We take a look at what happened on election night - from Prime Minister Anthony Albanese's path to victory, carnage in the Coalition, and the enormous support for the Greens, minor parties, and independent candidates. What role did young people have in delivering the country our most diverse parliament yet? And what does the election of 'Teal' independents mean for climate action over the next few years? Plus, now that Labor will be running the show - what did they promise to do, again? Live guests: Labor MP Anne Aly Former Liberal candidate and Gamilaroi man Geoffrey Winters

    Some people might miss out on voting because of COVID

    If you've come down with the spicy cough in the last week, voting will look a bit different this weekend. Until Wednesday night, there was the option to vote by post or now you can register for a phone vote. But a whole bunch of people have found themselves in an awkward spot where they may have no way to vote at all. Plus, if you're planning an election night TV binge we've got a guide on which seats to keep an eye on: the most hotly contested, marginal seats around the country. Also, the last edition of our policy cheat sheet: how the parties compare on mental health. And we chat about the latest unemployment rates out today. Guests Dr Skye Kinder, Uni of Melbourne Gabriella Marchant, ABC News reporter Elysse Morgan, ABC Business reporter

    Myth-busting preferential voting

    ‘Preferences’ are a pretty big part of our voting system, sometimes the deciding factor in who wins a seat in the election. So how do they actually work? We’ve got quick 101 on why it matters how you number your ballot, and some myth-busting about how much power parties have to decide where your preferences go (spoiler: none). Also, more than 30 retired judges have written an open letter calling for a federal corruption watchdog. Some parties and independents are keen on the idea - but others, not so much. And climate change is one of the most important issues for voters this election. So how does everyone’s policies stack up? Guests: Claudia Long, Hack political reporter Han Aulby, executive director Centre for Public Integrity Richie Merzian, the Australia Institute

    So … how do you vote again?

    The last election feels like it was a decade ago. Or maybe this is your first time voting. Either way, we're getting stuck into the basics of voting: lower houses, upper houses, above or below the line, and what you'll need on election day. Also, how do the major parties compare when it comes their policies on health? Plus, some of the Hack team are in Shepparton for triple j's takeover of the regional Victorian town. They've been chatting to Afghan refugees who've been starting a new life working in the region's fruit industry. And in the wake of a deadly, racially-motivated shooting in the US, it's been revealed an Australian anti-extremism taskforce set up after the Christchurch massacre has been quietly shut down. Guests Gabrielle Chan, The Guardian Dr Josh Roose, Deakin University
