Introducing our exciting new podcast: Nominal Interest!

Introducing Nominal Interest, ESSA’s exciting new podcast!

On Tuesday, the ESSA publications crew donned the headphones and microphones and went live on the airways courtesy of Radio Fodder for the first ever episode of new podcast, Nominal Interest. Each week, on Tuesdays at 7:00, we plan to dissect the news of the week in the worlds of politics, economics, pop culture and everything in between. We hope to bring an engaging, accessible and novel approach to the big stories as they happen, and we’re looking forward to joining in the discussion with you.

In our first ep, Tom Crowley, Priyanka Banerjee, James Maccarrone and Sam O’Connor tackled budget policy, unpacking recent developments on GST and Negative Gearing. We also took a brief trip to the whacky world of US politics. If you missed it, you can listen to it right here!

This pilot is just a taste of what we have in store. Next week, we’re handing things over to you. In our next Tuesday slot, you’ll be able to join in the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and (get excited) talkback. Don’t miss it!
