    On today’s podcast, we’re going to look at what happened, what actually constitutes an act of terrorism, and some steps for how to handle such a difficult period in the news.

    Bruce Lehrmann has lost his defamation case. What does that mean?

    Bruce Lehrmann has lost his defamation case. What does that mean?

    Yesterday, Justice Michael Lee handed down his judgement in the defamation case Bruce Lehrmann brought against journalist Lisa Wilkinson and Network Ten, finding that it was more likely than not Lehrmann raped fellow Liberal staffer Brittany Higgins in 2019 and therefore wasn’t defamed. In today's podcast, we'll explain the outcome of the civil case and what it means.

    In the age of fast fashion and on-demand expectations of clothing, a new trend is emerging: renting. More and more people are looking to borrow clothes or rent their own clothes out, both for sustainability and financial reasons.

    Today on the podcast, we speak to Dr Lisa Lake, Director of UTS’ Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Fashion & Textiles, about the way her team is working to track the environmental impact of borrowing and renting clothes.

    Why a women-only app is being sued in Australia

    A transgender woman is suing a social media app for discrimination in the Federal Court. Roxanne Tickle launched legal action against 'Giggle for Girls' after she was removed from the app in 2021, and claims she was discriminated against unfairly because of her gender.

    The creator of the app denies any wrongdoing, and has repeatedly denied that Tickle is female. Today on the podcast we’ll deep dive into the details of this case, and explain why it's so important.

Over a third of Australian music festivals lost money last year, with the cost of putting on a festival rapidly increasing. Today on the podcast we speak to the Managing Director of the Australian Festival Association, Mitch Wilson, to unpack the findings.

My go to for Aussie news

I’ve been listening to TDA for the last few years, all the way from the US and now while living in London. It’s my go to source for staying up to date with current events in OZ. As an American, I love how simple and understandable they keep the pods!
