For anyone interested in Chris Lilley’s new show, I was lucky enough to review it for The Conversation. Most critics seem to be absolutely hating it (e.g. this rough but excellently written review in the Guardian), but I didn’t think it was all that bad. Curious to hear what others think.

In The Conversation, Robert Phiddian and I are asking why so much Australian satire seems toothless these days, and what we can do about it. The idea for this article came out of a spontaneous conversation (Robert is my PhD supervisor), so it has found its perfect environment.
We are getting absolutely blasted in the comments section, so have a read and then tell us how stupid and left-wing cocooned we are!
Super excited to announce that the special South Aussie edition of Westerly Online—edited by myself and the incredible Amy Mead—is now available to download here. This FREE special issue is full of fiction, essays, poems, and photos all focusing on our weird and wonderful state; throw that Victorian novel you’re reading in the bin, and get into it!
