Hack brings you the stories that matter to young people. Every weekday host Avani Dias and the triple j Hack team cover the latest news, politics and culture from all around Australia.

    Let’s talk about January 26

    Let’s talk about January 26

    For many First Nations people, tomorrow is a day of mourning. It's not the Australia Day holiday. It's Survival Day, or Invasion Day.

    Across Australia, young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders will be forced to deal with the differences in how they feel about the day, and how others, including their mates might.

    The Aboriginal flag is now free for everyone to use, after the Federal Government reached a $20 million deal to secure its copyright.

    The Tongan diaspora in Australia fear for their loved ones after a volcanic eruption rivalling an atomic bomb caused a communication blackout.

    Plus, if you've been affected by COVID, chances are you've had to rely on some kind of government support during the pandemic. But applying for that kind of help is anything but easy.

    Live guests:
    Laura Thompson, Gunditjmara woman and co-founder of Clothing the Gap
    Aidan McCarthy, community lawyer from Melbourne

    Please, no 'Omicron orgies': Healthcare workers burn out

    Hack's back for 2022, after a summer that didn't turn out quite like anyone planned. Hundreds of thousands of COVID cases have swept the nation, supply chains have been thrown into disarray, and hospitals are struggling with demand.

    It's meant that lots of young, already-exhausted healthcare workers are now at breaking point.

    Plus, Western Australia braces for a COVID wave, while indefinitely delaying its state border re-opening.

    Live guests:
    Dr Erin Smith, World Association for Disaster and Emergency Medicine
    Patrick, Sydney paramedic
    Jenna Clarke, journalist, The Australian

Quality insights

I’m way outside the target audience for this podcast but I enjoy the intelligent approach and topics. I love that the anchor gives interviewees short shrift especially when they are politicians avoiding answers!
