Almost a decade of conservative government in Australia has ended. Votes are still being counted, but it looks like the Liberal and National Party have suffered their worst result in decades. The Greens, independents and minor parties have had historic wins, and will wield significant power in the new parliament. But the government will be led by Anthony Albanese, Australia's 31st Prime Minister – it's something even he didn't think was possible just a few years ago. So did it all come together? How did Labor react on the night? And while they have won government, are there big lessons in this result that the party will have to take onboard? Today — we go inside the Labor party at the moment it won victory.  Guest: Chief political correspondent for The Saturday Paper, Karen Middleton. Stay in touch with us on Twitter and Instagram

With Europe's changing security landscape, several parties in the continent are favoring NATO membership. Both Finland and Sweden stayed out of NATO during the Cold War, maintaining a neutral stance throughout the period. However, Russia's annexation of Crimea, its ongoing invasion of Ukraine and routine violations of airspace by Russian forces has prompted the non-aligned nations to rethink their security policies and consider a NATO membership. Cai-Göran Alexander Stubb is a Finnish politician who served as the Prime Minister of Finland from 2014 to 2015. He rose to politics as a researcher specialized in the affairs of the European Union and was elected to the European Parliament in 2004 as a member of the National Coalition Party. In 2008, Stubb was appointed as Minister for Foreign Affairs following a scandal surrounding his predecessor, Ilkka Kanerva. In 2011 Stubb stood for election to the Finnish Parliament for the first time and was elected MP with the second highest vote count in the election, which led to Stubb becoming the Minister for Europe and Foreign Trade in Jyrki Katainen's cabinet.

How To Fight Inflation

Real Estate Espresso

On today's show we are taking a look at how to fight inflation and the various efforts underway in Washington and other capitals around the world. Yesterday the national association of realtors published statistics for home sales in the month of April. Sales in April slid 2.4% from March to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.61 million in April. It showed the third month of decline in a row for volume of home sales. Year-over-year, sales dropped 5.9% (5.96 million in April 2021). Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell has said earlier this week at the Wall Street Journal Future of Everything conference that the Fed was committed to fighting inflation through monetary policy. He pointed to the housing market as evidence that interest rate policy was starting to work by cooling off demand for housing and with the hope and expectation that this will eventually result in reducing price inflation in the housing market. He is correct that the cost of housing is very sensitive to interest rates and that raising interest rates will exert downward pressure on the housing market. But where else in the economy will interest rates cool off inflation? Elizabeth Warren has put a proposal for price controls forward as a way to fight inflation. This approach has failed every time it's been attempted in history. Justin Trudeau's father Pierre Trudeau attempted price controls when he was Prime Minister of Canada back in the 1970's. They didn't work. They didn't work in Argentina, or for Richard Nixon. But this time will be different. After all, we have the internet and electric cars and we are so much more sophisticated now so those lessons from history don't apply to our modern way of life. You see governments have control over very specific geographical areas. No single government has global control over markets. So if government attempts to control the market for wheat or oil or cars or housing, then business will adapt and shift supply to those locations where they can maximize their return on investment. What happens in markets where governments introduce rent controls? Investors shift focus to areas where they can generate a profit. If government makes it unattractive to build or buy rental property in NY or California, then developers will shift their focus to Texas or Florida where they can be free from the chains of rent controls. In the short term, these controls seem like a good idea. But if you legislate businesses to lose money, then you pull supply of that product out of the market. Eventually, an underground economy will form in response to the acute shortage of supply and push prices up anyway. Some buildings that can't make a profit will be converted to condo, which has the exact opposite effect. You see the government can regulate the price that a landlord can charge. They can't regulate the supply of apartments. Therein lies the problem. ------------- Host: Victor Menasce email: podcast@victorjm.com

Rick Sammon has said that he specializes in not specializing, and I am seeing that approach to photography more often. Today's guest is Will Cadena, and his portfolio include Weddings, Bar / Bat Mitzvahs, Corporate Events, Commercial work, and Cinematography, and the entire body of work is world class. Will brings a sense of space to his images, with subjects that pop off the background. His lighting never leaves the subjects without their environment, while at the same time keeping the background in it's place. I'm browsing his site while writing this, and there is just an amazing richness to his work. Needless to say, picking an image for this show was difficult. Having started taking an interest in photography at a young age, today he is a sought after speaker. He has educated audiences at the Canon Experience Center, and the Fundy Inspiration Workshop to inspire Disney's Fine Art photographers at Disney World. He's spoken at PhotoPlus NY, and is a Speaker & International Judge at WPPI. From Imaging USA to the Vegas Symposium Will Cadena is helping to advance the creative community. His client list ranges from FJ Westcott and Think Tank Photo to Synology, Wacom, Sekonic and Celebrate. From Shinzo Abe - the Prime Minister of Japan, to Johnny Depp, Derek Jeter, Michael Bloomberg or Timothy Gunn, it seems Will can work in any situation regardless of pressure.

It's all come down to this. On Saturday night, Australia will decide it's next government and next Prime Minister. The final week of the campaign saw Scott Morrison, who is trying not to be a bulldozer, bulldoze a child during a media appearance at youth soccer training in Tasmania. And Labor released the costings on its policies, just two days out from the election. The party says it's policies will only cost 7.4 billion dollars more than the Coalition's, a figure that pales in comparison to the overall 220 billion dollar deficit. Today, to analyse all the latest events, we're joined by: Chief political correspondent for The Saturday Paper, Karen Middleton, Columnist for The Saturday Paper, Paul Bongiorno, and Election analyst from The Tally Room, Ben Raue.

Does France's new female Prime Minister mark a victory for feminism? Marseille's creeks (Calanques), faced with degradation, limit visitors. The battle in 1643 that shifted influence in Europe from Spain to France. Elisabeth Borne, the second female prime minister in France's modern history, bears the official title of "premiere ministre" the feminisation of “premier ministre”. President Emmanuel Macron was under pressure to appoint a woman, and someone with a more left-leaning profile than her predecessor, Jean Castex – a nod to the leftists and Greens who voted for him to block far-right Marine Le Pen. There's plenty of debate over Borne's left-wing credentials and whether she will usher in a more women-led government. Political journalist, Lea Chamboncel (@ChamboncelLea), host of the POPOL podcast and author of a book on women in politics, talks about why Borne's gender is, sadly, still news, and her own mission to get more women's voices heard in French politics. (Listen @0') Every year, tens of thousands of people flock to the picturesque inlets – known as Calanques – along the Mediterranean coast, eroding the cliffs and damaging vegetation. In a first for France – and Europe – the national park managing the Calanques is limiting access to those closest to Marseille, introducing a permit during the summer months. Isabelle Martinetti visits the area to see how it will impact locals and tourists alike. (Listen @20'05'') The French army snatched victory from its Spanish rival on 19 May 1643 in the Battle of Rocroi. Gary Girod (@girod_gary) of the French History Podcast explains the importance of the battle that marked the beginning of the end of Spanish dominance on the warfield, and the rise of France in Europe under the reign of Louis XIV. (Listen @12'53'') This episode was mixed by Cecile Pompeani.

The Met police have today announced that their investigation into No. 10 parties is now over, and No. 10 have confirmed that neither the Prime Minister nor his wife have received more fines. Is Boris Johnson out of the woods? Katy Balls speaks to James Forsyth and Isabel Hardman. James points out the fortunate timing of the Met police's announcement – at a time when the Durham police are investigating Keir Starmer for his potential breach when he was having a beer and curry, leaving the Labour party handicapped when the Sue Gray report comes out next week. 'The Gray report, though, I think is still very dangerous for Johnson, because it will highlight a lot of cultural and leadership problems within No. 10', Isabel says. Conservative MPs may yet have another wobble.

A Sofa King Classic: Jimmy Savile

Sofa King Podcast

Daves not here man..... On this episode of The Sofa King Podcast, we look at a guy who may be the worst Brit to ever live, Jimmy Savile. Jimmy Savile was a media personality and radio host (think Ryan Seacrest or Dick Clark in the States). He had a hit-maker radio and tv show that every musician wanted to be on. He also had a BBC television series that made the dream of ill children come true. He was knighted by the Queen of England and the Pope. That all sounds pretty awesome, right? Well, he was also a serial rapist, pedophile, and necropheliac. A year after he died in 2011, over 500 victims came forward to discuss their trauma. They ranged from 5 to 75 years old at the time of the crime. Most of them were physically or mentally ill at the time of the abuse. There were dozens of rapes. Oh, and most people think none of this ever came to light because of a cover up that may have gone as high up as the Prime Minister or the Royal family, both of whom he was close to. So how did a crappy meta-celebrity become such a monster and mega rapist? It was his “charity work.” He would hold fund raisers and give money—millions of pounds—to hospitals, children's schools, and mental hospitals. This would ingratiate Jimmy Savile with the board of directors and give him access to the hospital at all hours as a major donor. Then, he would rape, fondle, and abuse patients, relatives of patients, and everyone he could get his hands on. He'd feel up people hours after major surgery and rape people who were too mentally ill to know any better. He'd also sneak into the morgue and give oral sex to dead bodies (something called gamaroosh…see, you learn something new every day) and pose them in sexual acts to take photos with them. And steal their glass eyes. And then, he'd brag about it to the hospital staff. How this sicko got away with such a range of heinous crimes for 50 years is hard to imagine, unless, of course, it was being covered up for him. So, was Jimmy Savile part of an international sex trafficking scheme as many people allege? Was he a lone shooter? Was he just the luckiest rapist in the UK, or did he go out of his way to hide the truth? Why did the BBC bury the story of Jimmy Savile's sexual assault after he died? How many times were the police tipped off over the years? Who was Clair McAlpine, and how did her suicide almost bring him down in the 1970s? Listen, laugh, learn as we talk about someone who couldn't have died soon enough. Sex Timeline: https://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/jun/26/jimmy-savile-sexual-abuse-timeline
