Join Amanda Stoker, LNP Senator for Queensland (barrister, amateur potter and sometimes cranky mother) as she explores some of the big policy issues of our time with friends, colleagues and experts. Cut through the bull, get to the point and have a laugh as you go beyond the 3-second soundbytes and find out what's really going on in the issues of the day.
Welcome to the first episode of “Just Quietly”, a podcast in which I tackle some of the most interesting policy challenges we face with friends, colleagues and experts – in what I hope you’ll find a light, easy way!
In episode 1 I chat with Senator Matt O’Sullivan from WA, whose expertise pre-parliament was in indigenous employment. We tackle the challenge of reducing the 52% indigenous unemployment rate.
It’s timely, as today the PM delivered the Closing the Gap statement to the parliament. Let me know what you think, and any topics you’d like to see on the podcast.
