Episode #1 – The Budget 2018

On the inaugural episode of The Suss we kick things off with a discussion about The Budget 2018. Is it just a set theatre piece? Do people really care about it?

We catch up with artist Stephen Quinn who opens up about his disappointment following budget day announcements.

Plus, we look at the last two weeks biggest stories. From the powerful #MeToo hash tag, the governments response to Storm Ophelia, terrorist attacks in Somalia and the release of Ibrahim Halawa.
