Dastyari’s ‘Gutter Politics’
Former Labor Senator Sam Dastyari has landed a new gig that had us checking the calendar to make sure it wasn’t April 1st.
The former politician is joining the Kyle and Jackie O Show for a new, fortnightly segment called ‘Gutter Politics’ that will see him discuss federal politics and dish some dirt.
Forced to resign from politics last year in a donor scandal, Dastyari scored the job after passing a two-show audition, where he spilled the beans on what actually goes on in Canberra.

He’s not the first Labor identity to make an appearance on the show. Opposition leader Bill Shorten pops in regularly, with Sandilands referring to him as the “future Prime Minister”.
