Listen to House of Gods, the Indonesian election and Families for Palestine58:5228 February 2024

This week, Samira is joined by actor and screenwriter Osamah Sami on his new ABC TV series, ‘House of Gods’. Having grown up with a father who was the head cleric, Osamah took stories and experiences from his own life to co-create this series with Shahim Shafaei. They have dubbed the show as ’Succession in a mosque’ and 'House of Gods' is screening now.

Tito Ambyo, host of ‘Talking Indonesia’ podcast and Journalism lecturer at RMIT, gives us an Indonesian election explainer. Tito answers questions like: who is Soeharto? What does this election mean for democracy in Indonesia? And what influenced voters decisions?

Plus, Sara from Families for Palestine speaks on the indefinite picket and vigil out the front of Anthony Albanese’s electorate office in Grayndler. They are demanding for the Australian government to support a ceasefire and denounce Israel’s actions in Gaza. Follow @familiesforpalestine to stay up to date.
