SYN Nation

Australia Day special


This week, we’re joined by Connor Bourke, Melbourne Uni Indigenous Officer Maddee Clark and multiculturalism blogger Mabel Kwong to look at the politics of Australia Day. We also chat about the National School Curriculum, Australia’s meat culture and our nation’s alcohol problem. Plus, we speak to state opposition public transport spokesperson Jill Henessy about Labor’s plan for 24 hour public transport on weekends.
