229 – Jonathan Biggins

Jonathan Biggins is a legendary Australian satirist, actor and writer, who is currently performing his one-man show The Gospel According To Paul – a theatrical biography of the reforming Labor Treasurer and Prime Minister, Paul Keating.

I asked Jonathan about his thoughts on Keating’s complicated legacy – the good and the bad – and how his (often arrogant, but politically effective) leadership contrasts with the shit we have today. We discuss “economic rationalism”, the waging of culture wars and identity politics and Jonathan’s grave concern about the effect that social media technology is having on our society..
