Podcast 3: Australia's Surprise Election Result

Checking to see if Spee.ch has your asset locally...

The Australian election on Saturday did not go as planned - the 'wrong' side won, and Australian pollsters were humbled for the first time (by contrast, pollsters in the UK & US fell on their faces in 2016 or even before).

In this podcast, I outline a bit about how Australia's (unusual) electoral system works, why climate change is always going to be a fizzer at election time, and how pollsters fouled it up.
