We sorely miss hearing P.K and Fran hosting in the Party Room. Andrew, Mark, David, Lenore, Sabra and all the gangs analysis is desperately needed and really missing in this current unprecedented crisis. The disruption is across the globe and breaking down the long and short term effects is...Read full review »

Hi Fran and PK, I really like The Party Room. Well done. However, having said that, I have a request... You both say ‘ya know’ a LOT. Fran, you use this mini gap-filler more than PK but you both do it. PK you tend to also say it when you’re on The Insiders - but nowhere near the number of times...Read full review »

I really enjoy listening to your podcast. I found the episode with Sarah Hanson-Young incredibly difficult to listen too.
Jules69. via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/31/20
Thank you for your mammoth service to truth and quality analysis in these challenging times. Trusted sources such as the BBC, Guardian and ABC will emerge from this as pillars of strength - more so than most government sources. You are what will hold us together. Thank you.
Rosella19 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/26/20
but...PK is domineering, loud and annoying. Sorry, the content is good but I have to stop after the third time PK has talked over Fran in an extremely know it all way.

I thought you let SHY off the hook. She didn’t answer your questions, spoke at length and hid behind the victim. Please don’t do double interviews like this again. Really love the show and wouldn’t miss it for the world. PM

Disappointing to see Fran and Patricia be so black and white about domestic violence in their interview with SHY. Your interview came across as incredibly condescending to the victim, essentially implying she (the victim) was wrong to have made the decision to stand by her husband. Disgusting

Im really in need of an australian politics podcast right now but ive given up on the party room after hearing patricia desperately trying to equate sarah hanson youngs participation in the judicial process of her friends domestic violence conviction to being symbolic of sarah condoning domestic...Read full review »

I have listened to this podcast since the beginning but I can’t do it anymore. All it is now is opinions and discussion about topics the hosts are interested in whether they featured in the political debate or not. Not interested in your personal views thanks.

PK and Fran need to do joint interviews more often - this was an outstanding episode, and is and outstanding podcast.
Nick5797 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/10/20
Used to love this podcast now instead of reporting what’s going on in Australian politics there is too much speculation and punditry. Also there is more regurgitated LNP talking points. Very frustrating!

P.brewster via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/06/20
They never really give it to the government and call them out as working against the national/people’s interest do they? Eventually, they both reveal themselves to be good little apologists for the Libs
dhxjr via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 03/06/20
I love this podcast! I recommend it to everyone interested in what’s going on in Australia. PK and Fran are just so insightful. I look forward to hearing a new episode every Thursday! Love it!

Look forward to getting my weekly dive into federal politics with two wise, witty and wily women. Plus I love their judgmental tones when politicians do stupid things.
Bloke next door via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/28/20
If you’re an Australian political nerd, then I warn you. Listen once and you’ll be hooked. Is ok until we get to summer and the party shuts down for Christmas... then the withdrawals start. This is the podcast by which all others should be measured. Thanks Fran & PK
ToddMoxx via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/26/20
Excellent show again .
mulgagirl via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/25/20
I’m an American who wishes our political media could do a show like this. Love ya Fran and PK!
TJ in CTown via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/20
Great insights by two excellent journalists. Their guests add depth to their commentary- easy chat style discussions of the week on Australian politics.
TAP11 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/23/20
Your five star rating is truly deserved. The Party Room is my favourite podcast, and I listen to a few! You manage to retain the “meatiness” while making it funny and entertaining at the same time. Also, thanks for taking the time to appear on Insiders. Always a good start to the week when either...Read full review »

Great show, fairly new listener, if someone says that’s a great question just reply it is, what’s the great answer? Cheers Lighe of Brisbane
lethal razorback via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/21/20
Hi Fran and PK a question for Question Time. Last year I heard a number of commentators reference the disharmony within the Greens Party - yet we saw no evidence of this when Richard De Natalie stood down and a new leader had to be found, unlike the Nationals debacle. My question is, what was...Read full review »
Lucaslightsaber via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/21/20
I’m really enjoying political podcasts and their deeper analysis, radio/tv segments are too short. It’s also great hearing your personal perspectives which we don’t hear on radio/TV. Keep it up!
Thomas Parkes via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/21/20
These two women really are the epitome of intelligent and enthralling journalism. This podcast helped me make start making sense of politics and truly engaged my political brain. They are a joy to listen to and it's why I've been keen listener for a while now. Thanks so much Fran and PK. XRead full review »

Best political podcast. I’m always frothin’ for it on Thursdays and full devo when they miss a week.
Suffo Lupagus via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/13/20
I love this podcast. Fran and PK are so easy to listen to, making sense of Australian politics with wit and humour and insight. And the guests always add a special flavour to the conversations. I’m only sad that it’s a weekly podcast not daily, I’m addicted.
AnonintheWorld via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/31/20
Wonderful to have you two wonderful ladies back in the party room. Look forward to more reviews & reflections of all things politics through out 2020.
Echo62 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/30/20
Currently living in Glasgow and this is the only podcast I need to supplement my lack of auspol. A wonderful medicine for homesickness! Thank you Patricia and Fran!
Loughlin O'Kane via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/26/19
Get to hear what your favourite morning and afternoon radio hosts _realy_ think. And Great guests. A must for Aussie politics tragics.
Jazzierubel via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/15/19
Interesting summary of significant political events. Unconventional format makes me look forward to new episodes.
Jitendra R via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 12/15/19
How will I cope without these two wonderful journalists guiding me through the Australian news each week? Withdrawal symptoms already. Looking forward to hearing them again in the new year. Thank you for your hard work and enjoy a well deserved break Fran and PK.
Bl4ck D34th via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/08/19
Um
Can be interesting but doesn’t take much for it to veer into self absorbed and self importance. Inside the bubble?
luv abc via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/07/19
Very grateful for this podcast, I look forward to it every week
Neites via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/29/19
Keeping me up to date without getting bogged down in drudge of day to day politics. Entertaining, informative and lighthearted, my kind of political journalism. Great stuff!
Monika.Leigh via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/21/19
Congratulations!! I’ve been going back through all your old podcasts (I’m new to podcasts) and with the benefit of hindsight you sure didn’t miss much. I absolutely love the ABC and I thank my lucky stars that journalists like yourselves and the Institution of the ABC exists to shine light on how...Read full review »

The conversation is intelligent, yet accessible if you are out of the loop. I love this round up of all things politics and Fran and Patricia are just an absolute delight to listen to. I love their insight and that they are more than happy to question and disagree. I especially love when they...Read full review »

Seriously, these ladies break down the broad stroke stories of the day and give you an intelligent and in-depth analysis. I love them.
J_heymer via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/11/19
Love, love, love this podcast. Political commentary that’s thoughtful, fair, comprehensive and a bit of fun as well, delivered by two of the best journalists. Really enjoying question time and it’s always a bonus when Fran gives us a song
sharonjh via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/11/19
Hey guys, I love the podcast guys - you are incredible journalists and am a huge fan of both of you! I was puzzled how easy you guys went on Barnaby with respect the Nationals drought response recently; he was the envoy for the drought and I heard reporting indicating that he produced very...Read full review »

I love this chat each week - it always gives me something else to consider in this contested space of Australian politics. However yesterday’s program was a a real standout.

Fantastic to see an Australian -Greek journalist in a very Anglo media landscape, I have never heard of P.K before but I am now a fan. This is politics for Dummies with two passionate and well informed journalists. They make politiocs sound exciting.
Claire Fischer via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/26/19
Unfortunately what was originally an objective and informative podcast has now become a biased diatribe about Fran’s world view particularly in relation to climate politics. Unsubscribe.
Jules1088 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/16/19
Fran tries valiantly but this podcast is filled with insider waffle that serves only to amplify the views of political operatives in Canberra. It assumes that politicians and the journos that hang around them are in the best position to understand the national political situation. If you have...Read full review »
