61 – Osman Faruqi


Writer, engineer, former political candidate and now pollster Osman Faruqi has written for Guardian AustraliaJunkee and SBS and regularly tweets like a mofo. He’s the son of Mehreen Faruqi, the first female Muslim to be elected to any Australian parliament (for the Greens, no less) and has recently launched his own polling site, Metapoll, dubbed “the most reliable poll ever”.

Here Osman tells me how he and his mum first became engaged with politics, the dire state of climate politics in Australia today,the lack of diversity in the Greens and the ALMIGHTY POWER OF THE POLLS.
