    Why Omicron Made Us Feel Like We Just Can't Do This Anymore

    Why Omicron Made Us Feel Like We Just Can't Do This Anymore

    As the holiday season edges closer the last thing we want to think about is the pandemic, but with uncertainty over Omicron, borders and restrictions, you might be feeling utterly exhausted and fed up with not being able to plan festive celebrations with certainty.

    So what can you do when you feel exhausted by the constantly changing conditions and the seemingly never ending discussions about COVID-19?

    The Quicky speaks to a public health expert and ICU nurse, and a psychologist to find out how we can keep calm and carry on, no matter what happens over the festive period.

    If you're feeling overwhelmed and need some support, the Australian Government Department of Health has a number of resources available through their Head To Health initiative.

    Vaccine Inequality: Why We Could See More Variants Of Concern

    Vaccine Inequality: Why We Could See More Variants Of Concern

    The emergence of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has finally forced the world to have a difficult conversation that many experts and less-economically developed nations have been calling on us to have for a long time.

    Vaccine inequality, also referred to as 'vaccine hoarding' by wealthy nations including our own is proving to be a big problem, and many experts believe it is to blame for Omicron and other new variants of concern that may emerge.

    The Quicky speaks to an expert in public health to find out why not all countries have access to the vaccine doses they need, and what we can all do to solve the problem to ensure that everyone can 'live with Covid' as safely as possible.

    How To Be Good At Small Talk (& Why It Matters)

    How To Be Good At Small Talk (& Why It Matters)

    It can feel daunting at the best of times to strike up a conversation with a stranger at a bus stop, or a colleague you don't know particularly well in a lift, but it is even more difficult when the majority of your face is covered with a mask.

    You might also find it increasingly challenging to find new things to say after nearly two years of everything being cancelled, but does it really matter if you miss out on these minor interactions?

    The Quicky speaks to a psychologist to find out why small talk is important for our mental health and wellbeing, and what you can do to get back into the chat with people you've known for years, or even random passers by on the street.

    Are Men The Real Winners In Gender Neutral Awards?

    Are Men The Real Winners In Gender Neutral Awards?

    Last week the Australian Recording Industry Association Awards, better known as the ARIAs were live streamed from Sydney, and for the first time some of the prizes were handed out without artists being restricted to specific categories due to their gender.

    It marked a significant turning point for our music industry, and is part of a bigger movement of awards ceremonies across the world increasingly making their trophies gender-neutral, but not everyone is convinced this will help the cause of the queer community or women.

    The Quicky speaks to a gender expert and our own entertainment guru to find out why this effort to be more inclusive might actually only really help men, and ultimately make it even harder for women and non-binary people to achieve the recognition they deserve.

    The Women Suing Qatar & Your Rights In An Airport

    The Women Suing Qatar & Your Rights In An Airport

    Just over one year ago, at least 13 Australian women and hundreds of others were subjected to invasive gynaecological examinations without warning or explanation while they were transiting on flights through Doha Airport.

    It caused international outrage at the time, but what has happened since to ensure that those responsible for this gross violation of their rights are held to account, and that this never happens to anyone else ever again?

    The Quicky speaks to one of the women involved, a lawyer for a group suing the Qatari authorities, and an International Law expert to find out who is to blame for what happened, and how to make sure it never happens to you.

    A note on this podcast:

    While preparing this episode, we reached out to the Australian Federal Government for comment. We received a response from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade noting that they were unable to facilitate our interview request.

    We also contacted the Government of Qatar via their Embassy in Canberra for comment, but no response was received.

    The following is a statement from the office of the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Marise Payne that was sent to one of our colleagues:

    Minister Payne and DFAT registered the Australian Government’s serious concerns about this incident to Qatari Government authorities in both Canberra and in Qatar. The Australian Government sought an immediate investigation into the incident by Qatar authorities, and that action be taken against those responsible. The Australian Government also sought assurances that concrete steps be taken to ensure this cannot happen again.

    The Australian Government acknowledges the steps the Government of Qatar took in this matter, including a comprehensive investigation, the prosecution and conviction of those responsible, and the implementation of revised airport security processes to ensure this cannot happen again.

    How Worried Should I Be About Omicron?

    How Worried Should I Be About Omicron?

    Just when you thought it was safe to book domestic and international travel, Australia has joined a number of other nations by imposing new restrictions on people from nine African countries over concerns about the new Omicron variant of COVID-19.

    But why has this version of Coronavirus caused such international panic less than one week after being reported to the World Health Organisation, and what do we really know about how dangerous it is?

    The Quicky speaks to an infectious diseases specialist and a travel expert to find out everything you need to know about Omicron, and how it might impact both your health and your travel plans over the holidays.

Disability Merry Go around Covid-19

I was isolated during COVID 19 and had a traumatic accident going for a publicly safe walk and woke up with multiple physical injuries, consistent with a motor vehicle accident.
I have mobility aids in my home and endured a start stop merry go round of lack of access to rehabilitation.
I also had non visual injuries, unable to recall the trauma due to unconscious.
This resonates so much the struggle is real.
Hugs all round 🤗

I’m on at 6am refreshing my feedback until it’s been uploaded. Really love this podcast for the news updates and daily deep dives! Perfect amount of news I need at the moment

Maverick1098 ,

Bye.

This podcast is sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Health. No wonder why they talk about the Covid vaccine on the daily. Yawn. They love creating fear whilst providing unbalanced views. This is not news. It was once a great podcast but over the daily brainwash. I have removed and unfollowed all Mamamia podcasts.
