    Ep 12 - Hating on the International Criminal Court

    US National Security Advisor John Bolton gave a blistering speech against the International Criminal Court recently, so we just had to read the juiciest bits out and pick them apart for you, dear listener.

    Ep. 11 - How our schools are failing kids with disability

    Ep. 11 - How our schools are failing kids with disability

    We spoke to almost 100 teachers, school principals, support staff, parents of kids with disability and young adults about educating kids with disability in Victoria's mainstream schools. We also pored over every law, policy and practice that affected education for kids with disability, then we wrote a report with over 30 recommendations for how the Victorian government can do things (vastly) better. If a 100-page report seems a bit daunting, join us for a 30 minute primer on what we found.

    Here's the link to the final report: https://www.monash.edu/__data/assets/file/0016/1412170/Castan-Centre-Improving-Educational-Outcomes-for-Students-with-Disability.pdf

    Ep 9 Refugee, Marriage Equality

    In this episode, Marius, Maria O'Sullivan and Tania Penovic recount the history of offshore processing and explain how we got to the point where refugees are starving on Manus Island. In an act of cognitive dissonance all to common with human rights lawyers, they also perform an act of cognitive dissonance by combining this extremely depressing topic with a celebration of Australia's vote to legalise marriage equality.
