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.
