GALAs 2015: In Five. A Gala Debate on 2020.

March 11th, 2015

Episode 801 of 903 episodes

As part of our fifth birthday celebrations, we presented a unique headline debate with two sides, just one team – and nothing less than our future at stake. The central question: where will we be as a society in five years’ time? Should we feel hopeful, or should we feel despair? Speakers include feminist author Eva Cox, Robogals founder and former Young Australian of the Year Marita Cheng, political journalist and author George Megalogenis, Tasmanian Department of Justice secretary Simon Overland and medical anthropologist Gregory Phillips. Our host is writer and broadcaster Annabel Crabb.
