    How Can You Tell If The British Media's Coverage Of Meghan is Racist?

    How Can You Tell If The British Media's Coverage Of Meghan is Racist?

    "How is that racist?"

    That's the question both those in the British media and many of us have asked after reports that Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex was the target of racist media reports.

    In this episode, we help you understand the subtle, entrenched and historical racism that's directed towards Meghan because if we're going to call it out, we have to be able to see it.

    Three Things Indigenous Australians Want The Government To Do

    Three Things Indigenous Australians Want The Government To Do

    Three years ago, nearly 300 people signed a statement to the Australian parliament asking for Indigenous voices be heard in our government, the Uluru Statement from the Heart. It outlines three specific requests. 

    Three years on, what's happening with it? 

    The Quicky asks the question: with so many other countries like Canada and the US already creating treaties like this with their First Nation People, why wouldn't Australia follow suit?

    Where Is Celeste Barber's $51 Million Bushfire Fundraiser Money Going?

    Where Is Celeste Barber's $51 Million Bushfire Fundraiser Money Going?

    When we watched Aussie comedian Celeste Barber's online bushfire fundraiser hit $50 million, we all cheered... and then the questions about where the money was going began.

    We look at the breakdown of online fundraising, how the dollars go from the internet through the back end to the people who need it most and how this money might be expanding out from just benefiting the NSW RFS.

    Lyme Disease: The Hollywood Illness Stirring Controversy In Australia

    Justin Bieber has Lyme Disease. His doctors have diagnosed him with the tick bite bacteria and he's undergoing treatment for it... but he would have had a much harder time finding the cause of his symptoms if he lived down under.

    Lyme Disease is a controversial topic in Australia, we attempt to unpack the science and the symptoms and find out why Aussie doctors are bound to say it doesn't exist.

Customer Reviews

Nay-Day ,

Claire and Gemma are great

Claire and Gemma both do a great job presenting the morning news and deep dive segments.
Can tell they’re professional and seasoned journalists.

wajamiandara ,

Australia Day.

Sorry Claire Captain James Cook landed on our shores on the 26 April 1770. Australia Day is 26 January. The day Governor Arthur Phillip arrived with First Fleet, with the proclamation from England

Annieabes ,

My favourite

This is my favourite podcast. I have learned so much in the deep dive each day. The facts are presented and the background given to stories that not many of us know a lot about.
Well done to the whole team!
