Investigative journalist Jess Hill discusses her new book, See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control and Domestic Abuse, and the radical rethink we need to confront domestic abuse. Jess and Amy explore the history of approaches to domestic violence and how they have negatively shaped and impacted the way victims are treated and perceived, as well as the current approaches the federal and state governments are taking. And importantly Jess shares with us the solutions that do work. Ensemble members from Red Stitch Actors' Theatre, Sarah Sutherland and Brett Cousins came in to chat about their dark satirical production, Ulster American (written by David Ireland), which captures show business post- #MeToo and the confusion of ‘woke’ men trying to mansplain their positions of power and privilege. Plus Dr Aaron Martin, senior lecturer in political science from Melbourne University on federal politics and the latest news on Brexit.
