Kate Fielding, CEO of A New Approach (ANA), tells Samira all about the organisation's latest paper Friend, foe or frenemy: Foreseeable impacts of AI on arts, culture and creativity, which dissects the influence of AI and its place in the arts through an Australian lens.

Product designer by trade and artist by nature, Fernando Laposse, discusses his contribution to the NGV Triennial, Conflict avocados. The large-scale textile, film and furniture installation spotlights the human and ecological casualities of Mexico's avocado industry.

Plus, Triple R's own Beź Zewdie joins Samira for a deep dive into the world of Britney Spears, dissecting the complexities surrounding the megastar and the release of her biography, The Woman in Me. The conversation touches on drug abuse, addiction and family violence.
