  • 2506 - Why politics is all about 'stopping the boats' again

    Last week, 39 asylum seekers were found wandering the streets of Beagle Bay, a remote town in northern WA. Now the men have been sent to Nauru for offshore processing and it’s reignited political debate about boat turnbacks and Australia’s treatment of people seeking asylum. Plus, how are up and coming musicians meant to crack the regional market? For some bands, touring regional Australia's gotten too expensive, but for others it's been an essential part of their rise to the top. And new Aussie research has uncovered a supermassive black hole that eats one sun every day to become the brightest object in the universe. Guests: Dr Daniel Ghezelbash, Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law, University of New South Wales Simone Schinkel, CEO, Music Victoria Samuel Lai, researcher, Australian National University
