This week, Jess and Charlie are joined by guest-host Esther Anatolitis, editor of Meanjin. Together they talk to Dr Eugenia Flynn, writer, researcher, RMIT Indigenous postdoctoral fellow and guest-editor for Meanjin’s most recent Spring Issue, which features works entirely from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creators.

The team also discuss the media’s coverage of  sexual assault allegations, in light of recent reporting on UK comedian Russell Brand, and discuss whether Scott Morrison’s book will really be as different from other ex-PM’s memoirs as he says it will be.
