For the final Fifth Estate of 2017, Sally Warhaft and guests George Megalogenis and Alice Workman look back at the year in Australian politics.

The panel dive deep into the issues that have dominated this year’s domestic headlines, from energy policy to housing affordability. They look at the major events that have attracted international attention, too: the Uluru Statement from the Heart, the same-sex marriage postal survey and the crisis following the closure of the Manus Island detention centre.

This is the year Bill Shorten freestyled, Pauline Hanson wore a burqa into the Senate and the federal government managed to cause a diplomatic incident with New Zealand. Join us as we reflect on the wild ride of 2017 – from the citizenship debacle to Adani and beyond.
