The Fifth Estate

The Fifth Estate gives you access to regular in-depth insider analysis of current affairs and today’s key debates.

The Fifth Estate is a mainstay of the Wheeler Centre’s program, and of public conversation in Melbourne.

Hosted by broadcaster, anthropologist and writer Sally Warhaft, this long-running series sees guests from the world of politics, culture, journalism and international relations dissect pressing questions of policy, power and public affairs.

It’s a chance to give complex local and global issues the thoughtful discussion they deserve, and hear expert analysis on today’s key conversations.
