    Fighting racism in Australian sport

    Fighting racism in Australian sport

    When Rana Hussain’s family migrated to Australia from India they brought with them a passion for cricket, though it wasn’t long before Rana fell in love with Australia’s biggest sporting code: the AFL.
    But navigating the blokey, Anglo-centric world of Australian football in the 1990s wasn’t easy for a young Muslim woman. Her experiences during that time galvanised her to become an advocate for diversity and inclusion in sports.
    Today, Rana Hussain on the racism problem in Australian sport, and how to fight it.
     
    Guest: Diversity and inclusion expert Rana Hussain.

    The website the government doesn’t want you to see

    The website the government doesn’t want you to see

    In the middle of a growing national conversation about sexual harassment and consent, the federal government launched a campaign on respectful relationships for young people. 
    The campaign was widely criticised by experts and advocates, including former Australian of the Year Rosie Batty, who say it ignores their advice and research.
    They’re also concerned that it seems to have replaced another more evidence-based and expertly produced campaign, which was shut down 18 months ago. 
    Today, journalist for The Saturday Paper Kristine Ziwica on the question of whether the government's social conservatism is influencing sex education for young people.

    The terror arrests you missed

    The terror arrests you missed

    Last month police arrested two people accused of possessing extremist material.
    The arrests came at the same time as Australia’s security agencies were warning of an increase in far-right extremist activity.
    But now Australian officials have introduced new terminology to talk about the threats we face and are carefully avoiding the term "right-wing".
    Today, researcher at the Lowy Institute Lydia Khalil on what’s behind this change and why the language we use to describe a threat matters. 
     
    Guest: Researcher and contributor to The Saturday Paper Lydia Khalil.
