Dean Mackin gets permanent talkback radio shift on 2SM Super Radio Network

As of Saturday 21 Feb 2015 you will be able to catch Dean Mackin LIVE across the 2SM Super Radio Network from 2pm until 5pm. Thanks to the tremendous support from both management and the listeners, after just 5 short months after initially filling in for Carter Edwards while he was away on tour Dean has already achieved a permanent shift on the 2SM network and so will be heard on more than 40 stations throughout NSW and South East Queensland

Dean would like to thank everybody who has supported him during his time on commercial talk back radio.

    Hi Dean, question for your thoughts please; Malcolm Turnbull says an early election is needed because the current Senate will not pass important legislation. If he’s able to pull off an early election, with changes to Senate legislation parties ie no individuals etc, does this mean that the Senate is no longer the powerhouse to scrutinize the legislation from the house of reps on behalf of the people of Australia? Yours thoughts please. Harry Butler 0413433194.

      Hello Harry,

      The role of the Senate doesn’t change… nor does he have the power to change the ROLE of it himself without a referendum, but WHO would be eligible will change if he can get these new laws through. Whilst it SOUNDS good that the likes of Sarah Hanson Young would NOT have got in had those laws been in place AND that the likes of Ricky Muir would not have got in, the fact that Malcolm Turnbull WANTS this to me would suggest that Australia would be worse off but I am also of the belief that it could indeed BENEFIT parties such as One Nation and others who I am guess Turnbull is underestimating but time will tell.

    Hi Dean I want to just put my views forward please.
    I don’t understand what all the fuss is about
    with the gay marriage vote.
    First of all it’s a total waste of money.
    God made us all.
    Gay people are the same as us.
    They did not choose this lifestyle
    Why would you.
    The can already have children by adoption
    surrogate etc
    That horse has already bolted.
    I think if homosexual people who have children
    Ii would make it a safer place for them.
    It’s about equality
    Homosexuality has already been around
    like forever
    The church has always
    had the right to refuse to marry whom they choose.
    I can’t see what is going to change except there will
    be equality for all. Thank you
