We started off by hearing an excerpt of the latest episode of 3CR's Women on the Line show, hosted by Xen Nhà​. In this episode, Xen chats with Domina Jia​, a sex worker and artist based in Honolulu, O’ahu, Hawai’i. Xen and Jia speak about Jia's zine Be Easy Stay Safe vol.2 which features around 20 contributors from all facets of the sex worker industry including strippers/dancers, cam-models, sugar babies, dominatrixes and more. Listen to the rest of the episode here, and find Jia's work on Instagram at @jinjavitus_. Remember, you can catch the Women on the Line show every Monday from 8:30-9AM on 3CR!​//​


​​Having moved from India to Australia at the age of 6, Urvi ​Mujumdar ​has always juggled two worlds— living up to her parent’s expectations (or trying to!) whilst still trying to appear cool at all times. Urvi’s experiences add a unique flavour to her observational comedy. Balancing her dark wit and sarcasm with a contagious excitability, Urvi’s comedy values quality and connectedness above all. ​ Today Urvi joins us to talk about her journey as a comedian, and the Footscray Laughs program, a series of comedy shows, each happening on one Friday in June, August and November this year.​ You can buy tickets to her upcomig Melbourne International Comedy Festival show 'Urvi went to an All Girls School' here.//​

Then we are joined by Matt Kunkel, CEO of the Migrant Workers Centre to talk about the centre's latest report 'Insecure by Design' which outlines Australia’s migration system and migrant workers’ job market experience, reveals the toll of visa discrimination on migrant workers and reiterates the indisputable link between temporary visa status and workplace exploitation //


Lastly, we are joined by John B. Lawrence SC is a Darwin barrister. He was a Crown prosecutor in Darwin and later solicitor in charge of the Northern Australian Aboriginal Legal Aid Service. He is a past president of the Northern Bar Association and of the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory. He represented one of the Don Dale youth detainees during the Royal Commission, and joins us today to speak about his article in ARENA: What the meaning of Don Dale is.
