    Can kangaroos help Aussie athletes bounce back?

    Can kangaroos help Aussie athletes bounce back?

    Kangaroos could hold the key for sport stars looking to overcome career-ending ligament injuries.

     

    Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries in the knee are common in many sports and can often derail the careers of professional sport stars. We’re joined by Dr Nick Hartnell, an Australian surgeon working on a way to use the longer and stronger ligaments of kangaroos to help humans overcome torn tendons.

     

    Tom has experience here…he did his ACL in a motorcycle accident a few years ago.  Join us this morning to learn how kangaroos could help Australian athletes – including Tom – bounce back from injury

    Electric cars: why has Australia hit the brakes?

    Electric cars: why has Australia hit the brakes?

    Australia already has one of the worst uptakes of electric vehicles...for example, last year Germany and France both grew their electric vehicle fleet by more than 200 per cent.   In Australia, fewer than 7000 electric vehicles were sold in 2020 representing just a three per cent jump from 2019. 

     

    We’re joined by Jake Whitehead, a transport expert at the University of Queensland; and David Brown, the former president of the Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management

     

    Victoria and NSW are considering a tax on electric cars which will make uptake even slower.  Why aren’t Australians transitioning to electric vehicles...and why isn’t the government doing more to encourage us to switch?

    Have we lost the war in Afghanistan?

    Have we lost the war in Afghanistan?

    US President Joe Biden announced last month American troops would withdraw from Afghanistan by September 11 this year.    Our PM quickly followed suit confirming the 80 remaining Australian defence personnel still in Afghanistan would also leave. 

     

    Around 80,000 Australians have been deployed to Afghanistan since the conflict began in 2001.  41 of them lost their lives.  More than 150,000 Afghan civilians and military personnel and Taliban fighters were killed in the 20-year conflict that cost the US more than $1.2trillion

     

    Maryam Zahid is the founder and director of Afghan Women on the Move; and Raspal Khosa - independent defence analyst, formerly with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.      We ask what life is like for Afghans today.  And have we lost the war in Afghanistan?

No critical thinking by Tom & Annika

If it wasn’t for Jan’s episodes, I would’ve stopped listening. Tom and Annika’s lack of critical thinking & analysis is becoming unbearable. Please bring back Jamila and have more Jan so that I can listen to more engaging analysis and discourse. Also, Annika is sounding more and more like a “Scomo” sycophant.
