Listen to New approaches to global crises, homosexuality in the AFL and session musician struggles46:3521 August 2023

Dylan and Kulja sit down with Indy Johar, architect and founder of London-based Dark Matter Labs, who unpacks the thinking behind the organisation’s way of approaching global challenges and crises ahead of his keynote at Now or Never 2023.

Louise Milligan, award-winning investigative journalist, chats about what went into her investigation on the silence about homosexuality in the AFL for ABC's Four Corners, amid queer sexuality in sport being spotlighted and celebrated by the Women’s World Cup.

Plus, Dr Rod Davies, convener and lecturer at Monash University, gets into the calls to address the inequity in payment for session musicians in Australia, and why the country is lagging behind the rest of the world on the issue.
