Deep Trouble’s War on The Chaser’s War on the 2019 Election Result

Deep Trouble’s War on The Chaser’s War on the 2019 Election Result

In this SPECIAL EPISODE of Deep Trouble we interview Charles Firth of the Chaser. He offers an analysis of the state of play for the major parties in 2019, why the Labour Party lost the ‘unlosable’ election, as well as the politics surrounding important issues from refugee intake to climate change. Firth completed an Arts degree in political science at the University of Sydney, where he was the subject of a reality TV styled documentary called Uni. He is best known as a member of The Chaser productions CNNNN where he hosted ‘The Firth Factor’, which was a satirical segment parodying Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly’s ‘The O’Reilly Factor’, and also appeared in a segment about American culture called ‘Firth in the USA’ for The Chaser’s War on Everything. He is currently the editor of The Chaser Quarterly.

Deep Trouble Season 2 rolls in July 2019. Listen to all of the Deep Trouble interviews we’ve run to date here, or listen on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher or wherever you find your podcasts.
