We’d like to welcome you to INQ, Crikey’s ambitious new inquiry journalism initiative. Starting June 24, INQ investigative reporting — lifting the rocks, connecting the dots, following the money trail and exposing misuse of power — will appear regularly in Crikey.
We look forward to sharing this exciting new phase with you.

There’s no doubt that a night out at a Wil Anderson show will guarantee you a solid laugh. An old hand at radio and a familiar face on our screens, he’s dominated every medium but it’s when he struts his stuff on stage that he’s at his best.
Is masculinity still relevant? That’s the burning question of Simon Taylor’s one man debate, a witty, cleverly crafted and stylishly delivered comedy show.
