With a show almost as crowded as March in March, guests in the studio this month include Lizzie O Shea, Sean Choolburra, Afroz Hadli & Andre Dao.
Join Ben, Rach & Ev as they discuss Victoria’s new ‘Move On’ laws, robots & rights, and if racial discrimination is prevalent in cyber dating.
Lizzie O’Shea unpacks the Victorian Government’s changes to ‘Move On’ laws, and how they can affect our right to protest.
Sean Choolburra discusses dancing for the Dalai Lahma and what’s in store for audiences checking out his new show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival!
Ev (recently self-appointed science reporter) has her first science interview with Afroz Hadli. Afroz offers interesting insights into how artificial intelligence works and the various ways in which new technology can be used to promote, and violate, human rights.
We also chat with Right Now’s Poetry Competition Winners Jake & Robert and announce Right Now’s Human Rights Hero of the Month!
