  • Federal elections are full of highlights and lowlights, none more than the 2016 election. Join political and economics commentator George Megalogenis and journalists Mark Dapin and Malcolm Knox as they reveal the horrors and humour of the 2016 campaign and what questions this latest shuffling of the deck chairs raises for the immediate future.

    George Megalogenis is an author and journalist with three decades’ experience in the media. His books include The Australian Moment, which won the 2013 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Non­fiction and the 2012 Walkley Award for Non­fiction, and formed the basis for the ABC documentary series Making Australia Great. George is also the author of Faultlines, The Longest Decade and Quarterly Essay 40: Trivial Pursuit – Leadership and the End of the Reform Era. This year George will publish Quarterly Essay 61: Balancing Act: Australia Between Recession and Renewal.

    Award winning journalist Malcolm Knox held several positions at the Sydney Morning Herald, including chief cricket correspondent, assistant sport editor and literary editor. He writes regularly for The Monthly on the state of play in Australian society on topics from politics to sport, literature to supermarket domination.
