This week on Uncommon Sense we have four excellent interviews, conducted by our host Amy Mullins:

Sally Whyte deputy editor of Crikey on the latest in federal politics

Inside Story contributing editor Peter Mares discusses his essay 'Surfing With Singer' on the concept of effective altruism and the ways we evaluate charitable giving.

Filmmaker Jolyon Hoff and photographer Muzafar Ali joined Amy in the studio to talk about The Staging Post, their documentary that follows Ali and fellow refugees awaiting UNHCR processing at Cisarua, Indonesia. The film showcases the strength and agency of the refugee community who created the Cisarua Refugee Learning Centre.

Freelance writer Sophie Cunningham spoke about her essay Biyala Stories, which won the 2017 Nature Writing Prize.
