In Episode 53, “The Battle for the Soul of America”, Blenheim Partners’ Gregory Robinson speaks to Stephen Loosley AM, who served as Senator for New South Wales in the Australian Parliament during the Hawke and Keating Governments, where he chaired both the Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade and the Senate Regulations Committee. He is now the Deputy Chair of Thales Australia and a Director of O’Connell Street Associates. He has served as Chair of the Woomera Prohibited Area Advisory Board and is the immediate past Chair of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, where he is now a Senior Fellow.

In today’s discussion, Stephen will help us navigate the upcoming US election, in what many argue will possibly be the most divisive of campaigns and one of the most important elections in our lifetime. He takes us through the state of play, the candidates and their respective parties, their platforms and policies and where it will be won and lost.

Looking forward, there will be a second part to the conversation after the election, to review the key moments, where it was ultimately won, what the future of America will look like and what this means to Australia and the world.
