Welcome to the fourth of The Conversation’s Election 2013 podcasts.

Each week The Conversation will be sitting down with Australia’s top political minds to discuss all things election as we gear up for the big day on September 7.

This week, in a special Queensland podcast, we discuss why Queensland voters have earned a reputation as big swingers, whether federal Labor’s scare campaign against the state Newman government has worked and how minor parties such as Katter’s Australian Party could influence the next Senate.

Joining us are Tracey Arklay, a Griffith University Adjunct Research Fellow and Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, and John Harrison, Senior Lecturer in Journalism and Communication at the University of Queensland (both pictured below).

We hope you enjoy it.

Podcast produced by Georgina Connery and Courtney Barnes from the University of Queensland.
