This episode features a talk from activist Sam Castro on challenging sexism within progressive movements and creating system change. This talk was recorded at the 2018 Students of Sustainability conference in Melbourne. Sam is an activist with Friends of the Earth and WACA, and has been on our podcast all the way back on episode 65, discussing direct action.

Some of the points that came up in Sam’s workshop that we have covered on previous episodes are call in versus call out culture and Men of Colour being more likely to be called out for sexism. We also covered the #MeToo movement on episode 191.

If you’d like to join in discussions on this topic and others, we encourage you to join us at the upcoming forum ‘Community as Activism: Building Community within the Animal Liberation Movement and Beyond’ by the Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) Oceania. This free event will feature sessions on transformative justice and #MeToo, as well as intersectionality in practice and building community. It will be held on Saturday 4 August, 1-5pm at Library at the Dock (107 Victoria Harbour Promenade, Docklands) – in Melbourne.

This episode also features a little bit of Adam Cardilini’s talk on the environmental impact of animal agriculture. This is from the workshop ‘Achieving Environmental Liberation Through Animal Liberation’ which Adam ran with Nick, also at the Students of Sustainability conference. You can listen to both of our talks from this workshop here and view Adam’s PowerPoint here and below. We also covered the environmental impact of animal agriculture on episode 171.

We’re joined by politics junkies Jen Perry and Kieran Massie. In the first part of the episode we discuss the #libspill and gender, farewell Tony Abbott (and his shit eating face), analyse what will (or won’t!) change with Malcolm Turnbull as Prime Minister, and mention the results of the Canning by-election.

Gender and the leadership spill – a lot of criticism about the spill has been directed at Julie Bishop rather than Malcolm Turnbull.

In the second part of the episode we discuss UK politics including Scottish nationalism and socialist backbencher Jeremy Corbyn becoming leader of the British Labour Party. For more on Scottish nationalism and the rise of the Scottish National Party (SNP), see Mhairi Black’s maiden speech to parliament (embedded below). She is 20 year old SNP politician who unseated a Labour candidate in her district.

We finish the episode by looking at the Australian Greens mainstreaming and moving to the right – using the example of a recent portfolio reshuffle.

Check out Jen’s blog! You can also hear Jen discuss intersectionality, animal rights and feminism on our 48th episode.

Waleed Aly’s call for more money for services to tackle domestic violence reached a lot of people online and through the popular current affairs TV show The Project.

You can listen to this episode above and subscribe to our podcast on iTunes. You can also listen to this episode on StitcherCyber Ears or download it on Archive.org (57mins, 42MB).

This time we take on the lack of funding for services to tackle domestic violence in the federal budget. We’re joined by Jessica Ellen, a law student who has done research into domestic violence and volunteered at community legal centres.

We start by playing Waleed Aly’s #ShowMeTheMoney video on this issue, as well as Jessica’s follow-up video on this.

Jessica then discusses the importance of domestic violence services and education for men, government cuts and how this relates to domestic violence, the role of the law in addressing these issues, Waleed Aly’s interview with Malcolm Turnbull, gendered violence and why anger management alone doesn’t address it, and Jane Gilmore’s article ‘What the Coroner’s Court report reveals about domestic violence’.

Also covered on the episode is: 1800 Respect, non-profits and neoliberalism, religion and progressive values (check out episodes 87 and 88 for more on this), and we promote Indymedia on RTR92.1FM – 27 April episode features an interview with film-maker David Bradbury on his documentary ‘Remembering the Frontier Wars’ as well as a discussion about Anzac Day, 4 May episode covered the Melbourne protests against the closure of Indigenous communities.
