Extraordinary times call for extraordinary leadership, but as the planet warms and the pandemic persists, democracies are faltering and true accountability seems somewhat lacking.
Shalailah Medhora leads a panel of renowned journalists in a conversation ranging from how governments do (and don’t) take responsibility when things go bad to accountability in the face of reporting sexual misconduct and leaders’ divergent responses to COVID-19.
Ultimately, they ask: who’s in charge? And where does the buck stop? Featuring The Guardian’s David Marr, The Sydney Morning Herald’s Kate McClymont (Dead Man Walking), Four Corners’ Louise Milligan (Witness) and The Monthly’s Nick Feik.
