Was great fun to chat about the state of the Australian Left with the very smart Alison Pennington, Guy Rundle and Jeff Sparrow on Stephen Jolly‘s podcast.

After the longest break from live shows in Dum Dum history we are BACK, LIVE in Melbourne to a sold-out crowd with PETER HELLIAR, TOM BALLARD and NICK CAPPER! Tommy’s got a prop to make himself feel more comfortable, Karl’s wearing all of his lockdown purchases, Pete has a new support act, Capper’s eaten a pizza and Tom gets bullied. PLUS given that it’s a live show, there’s shots being done onstage and people in the crowd yelling at us. God, it’s good to be back!
It’s a great and challenging and I was honoured to be asked to chat to them about Australian politics, race, comedy and “doing the work”.

Honoured to be hosting this forum with a punch of exciting and cool young climate activists who will probably make me feel old and bitter. We’ll be discussing what the future looks like for climate activism in post-COVID Australia.
Here’s the info:
Join comedian Tom Ballard in conversation with eight young climate leaders from across Australian in a special LIVE Q&A event seeking answers to the question:
Where to from here for young people?
On the panel are:
- Marco — Youth On Strike!
- Leila — School Strike 4 Climate
- Tish — Seed mob
- Gauri — Outburst! (Youth Action’s Western Sydney youth leadership team)
- Ashlee and Airly — The Mallacoota Sanctuary Youth Group
- Ishara — Climate Reality
- Timothy — Pacific Climate Warriors.
Disproportionately impacted by COVID and the persisting impacts of climate change, in this forum young Australians will have the opportunity to answer questions on what a post-COVID world looks like for young people and discuss how to increase youth representation and involvement in decision making beyond 2020.

With young people routinely under-represented in the media, leadership roles, and decision-making positions, this event will give a diverse group a chance to share their thoughts, ideas and feelings on what the future holds, and how best to tackle its challenges.
