    What we know about the murders of Jesse Baird and Luke Davies

    Last Friday, a NSW Police officer was charged with the murder of Sydney couple Jesse Baird and Luke Davies.

In today’s podcast, we’ll talk through what we know happened, how the community is responding, and all the things police are still trying to piece together about this alleged double murder.

    Are young Australians the ‘lonely generation’?

    According to the latest HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia) report, young Australians are more likely to experience loneliness and psychological distress than any other age group. For twenty years, HILDA has been interviewing the same network of 17,000 Australians, every year, to compile results that give us comprehensive insight into the lives of Australians. To help us understand more about what is causing this loneliness epidemic, we speak to one of the experts behind the data on today's podcast.

    There is a push to curb alcohol consumption in Parliament House after two recent incidents involving parliamentarians and alcohol. Earlier this month, a video went viral of Nationals MP Barnaby Joyce lying on the ground in the middle of a Canberra street. This week, Nationals Senator Perin Davey admitted she had two drinks before a Senate Estimates hearing, where she could be heard slurring her words. In today’s deep dive, we’re discussing the rules around drinking in Parliament, the push for breath testing and what happens next.

    Over the weekend, Alexei Navalny, the most vocal critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, died in prison. Navalny was in jail serving multiple sentences for crimes he claimed were "fabricated” at the time of his death. Since the news of his death broke, many western leaders have been quick to blame the Russian Government for his death. On today's podcast, we deep dive on exactly who Alexei Navalny was, why his death is seen as suspicious by so many, and how world leaders are reacting to the news.
