Aussie Election: A Game of Polls – feat. Julian Assange [RAP NEWS 20]
Rap News season finale: Episode 20 – A Game Of Polls. A messenger raven has arrived in the Juice Media studio bearing tidings from the land of Australios: Elections are Coming. The perpetually warring factions and severely inbred families from across the Australian political sphere are squaring up in a more than usually bloody campaign. It’s Right versus slightly more Right in the election to end all elections for a few years. Join Robert Foster as he meets the bloodthirsty players in this violent saga. Who will slay whom? Who will prevail and claim the Irony Throne in Canberra? Who is that mysterious platinum-haired challenger in exile overseas? All these questions and more will be ignored in this celebratory 20th episode of Rap News.
– Written & created by Giordano Nanni & Hugo Farrant in a suburban backyard home-studio in Melbourne, Australia – on Wurundjeri Land.
