We've had the wake up calls: the massacre in a mosque in New Zealand; video of a man attacking a black Australian; a jail sentence for a man who planned to blow up a trade union building in Melbourne.
The far right is alive and well in Australia. But how strong is it? Are they a bunch of sad fantasists or a threat to us all?
This week in Talk of the Times, Steve Evans and Alex Crowe are joined by Australia's leading expert on the far-right, Dr Joshua Roose from Deakin University, and by Sarah Basford Canales who covers the security service for The Canberra Times.
Join the conversation this week on Talk of the Times through Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
