This episode of Australian Story focuses on former Independent Member for Indi and “godmother of the independents movement”, Cathy McGowan AO.

When Cathy McGowan won the seat of Indi in 2013, she had no idea that she would become a lightning rod for an independent movement that is now dominating Australian politics.

In this episode, Australian Story joins Cathy McGowan on the political hustings as she seeks to shore up election victory for the independents contesting more than 23 seats across Australia for whom she is considered their “secret weapon”.
