    And you thought things were expensive before...

    Thirty bucks for watermelon, $12 for lettuce, this is food insecurity at play. But your rent might be going up too. And somehow rental vacancies are going down as well. We have a big cost of living theme on the show today. We're digging into why food is getting so pricey, why it could get even worse, and where it’s particularly bad. Then we're going to look into some new rental data that shows there are almost no options for some renters.  Plus, are we about to get COVID again? Because we're being warned by some experts that it's about to get bad (again). And we're really not ready, tbh. Live guests; Dr Rebecca Lindeberg, Deakin University  Dr Nicola Powell, Chief of Research, Domain  Fiona Vesper, Indigenous artist Dr Nick Coatsworth, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for COVID-19 response

    Big changes to unemployment payments

    It's big, it's dramatic and it's points-based. Major changes have been introduced to Centrelink and some people think they're too confusing. Five points for this, ten points for that, but what if you make a mistake and suddenly lose your payments?  And, a program called Emma's Project empowers kids with the language to articulate sexual assault if it's something they experience.  Live guests:  Tony Burke, Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations  Nunami Sculthorpe-Green, Blak Led Tours Tasmania  Joe Tucci, chief executive, Australian Childhood Foundation

    Would you change your diet to live an extra 20 years?

    How committed would you be to living longer? Would you change your diet to get another 20 years? Some findings published in the journal Cell detail that a specific balance of whole foods, fasting, staying within a specific BMI, and limiting meat intake can combine for a much longer life. But can you really BF?  And, it's NAIDOC week! We'll be profiling a whole bunch of incredible people. Today, that's artist Dylan Mooney who illustrates First Nations' identity and queer love. Plus, cultural fishing has been passed down through generations of First Nations people, yet some on the NSW south coast are being harassed by fisheries.   Also, Sydney is being pounded by rain and many of the suburbs you've heard of being flooded before are under water again.   Live guests:  Anna Debenham, nutritionist  Dylan Mooney, artist Sally Thompson, UWA

    Conversion therapy is still happening

    Conversion practices that try to 'pray the gay away' are still happening in some parts of Australia, and they're extremely harmful. Some states like Queensland, have banned conversion practices, but some activists think the Federal Government should step in.   And, a lot of clubs have dress codes that ban face and neck tattoos, but what about when those tattoos have cultural significance and importance? One woman says she was denied entry into a Brisbane nightclub because of her face tattoos which have deep historical and cultural meaning.   Plus, what do you think of the idea of alcohol-free wine? Would it make Dry July a little easier? Because South Australia – a big wine region – is pumping it out.  Live guests:  Victor Madrigal Borloz, United Nation  Stephen Blanks, NSW Council for Civil Liberties
