Van Badham joins Ben Davison to discuss the opening salvo's from Morrison and Albo on the first day of the election.

They take a brief look at some of the battle ground seats around the country, the key issues that have been put forward by the leaders and seperate some of the spin from the reality.

So settle in for a wide ranging chat about the issues, the leaders, how the systems of our democracy work and some frank confessions about who has eaten chalk and people's favourite cheeses in this "hey ho, lets go" election kick off special.
