Podcasts and Radio Interviews

Unfortunately the mainstream media doesn’t always give us enough of a platform to go into detail on the important issues affecting our community, but over the years Jonno has also agreed to longer-form in-depth interviews on a range of topics, which you can find via the links below. Please note the dates of the interviews, and remember that a lot can change in a few years, so Jonno’s views and policies on some issues might have shifted a bit over time.

(Please email us at [email protected] if you notice any links on this site that are no longer working, or if you’ve recorded a long-form interview with Jonno in the past that’s not listed here and you would like us to add the link.)

 Jonno is happy to make time for podcasts that already have an established audience, particularly on topics that haven’t been covered much in the past or where the political landscape might have changed recently. Get in touch with our office by emailing [email protected] or calling 3403 2165 to arrange an interview time.
