The War On Waste with Craig Reucassel | Summer Series
Our summer podcast series brings you some of the best conversations from our webinars and live events in 2023.  7 years ago, The ABC’s groundbreaking environmental series War On Waste firmly placed the nation’s attention on Australia’s waste issues and solutions. The new season investigated recycling in Australia, brought to light new waste topics, challenged the lack of corporate accountability towards their own waste and explored what government can do to curb the waste tide. And most importantly the season provides straightforward solutions to help us all shift the status quo with Australia’s waste crisis. Join Craig Reucassel, host and producer of ABC TV’s War On Waste and Nina Gbor, Director Circular Economy & Waste Program at the Australia Institute, for a discussion on how we can all turn the tide to resolve Australia’s waste crisis as individuals, within communities and with our local and national government. This was recorded on Thursday 14th September 2023 and things may have changed since recording. australiainstitute.org.au // @theausinstitute Guests: Craig Reucassel, writer, comedian and documentary maker // @craigreucassel Nina Gbor, Director, Circular Economy & Waste Program, the Australia Institute // @NinaGbor Host: Ebony Bennett, Deputy Director, the Australia Institute // @ebony_bennett Producer: Jennifer Macey // @jennifermacey Edited by: Emily Perkins Theme Music: Pulse and Thrum; additional music by Blue Dot SessionsSupport Follow the Money: https://nb.australiainstitute.org.au/donateSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Truth on Trial: War Crimes and Whistleblowers | Summer Series
Our summer podcast series brings you some of the best conversations from our webinars and live events in 2023.  The first person will face trial in relation to Australian war crimes in Afghanistan is David McBride, the whistleblower on trial, not an alleged war criminal. On the eve of David McBride’s trial, a distinguished panel of experts discussed what’s at stake, what it says that whistleblower not a war criminal is facing trial, and the right to truth and accountability when whistleblowers are facing prosecution. This was recorded on Friday 10th November 2023 and things may have changed since recording. australiainstitute.org.au // @theausinstitute Guests: Rex Patrick, Former independent Senator and Whistleblower Justice Fund Founder // @MrRexPatrick Hadi Marifat, Director and co-founder of the Afghanistan Human Rights and Democracy Organization // @HMarifat Rawan Arraf, Executive Director of the Australian Centre for International Justice // @rawanarraf Kieran Pender, senior lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre // @KieranHRLC Sharara Attai, Executive Director of the Islamophobia Register Australia Host: Ebony Bennett, Deputy Director, the Australia Institute // @ebony_bennett Producer: Jennifer Macey // @jennifermacey Edited by: Emily Perkins Theme Music: Pulse and Thrum; additional music by Blue Dot SessionsSupport Follow the Money: https://nb.australiainstitute.org.au/donateSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
