On the show with Eiddwen, Judith and Will

7:00am - 3CR studios stand on land falling under the sovereignty of the Kulin Nations, to whose Elders we pay our respect. First Nations sovereignty has never been ceded

7:05am - The Christian Right, Wrong: Archdeacon for Justice Father Rod Bower is in Melbourne promoting his book Outspoken and he talks to us about the creeping Christian Right Wing that has taken hold of conservative parliamentary politics. Fr Rod will be speaking at St Peters at 10am this Saturday

7:20am - Erasing Women Scientists: In the course of reducing unnecessary historical material from the HSC, NSW year 11 and 12 students have been left with a curriculum that features 25 male scientists and no women. Researcher at the Sydney University Physics Education Research Group, Kathryn Ross comes in to tell us why this might stand in the way of getting girls into STEM

7:35am - Low Energy, Sad: The Australian government's approach to energy security is outdated. Professor Sam Hepburn is Director of the Centre for Energy and Natural Resources Law at Deakin Uni, and joins us to talk about what changes need to be made to ensure that our energy infrastructure is agile and reactive

7:45am - Alternative News: We put a critical eye to how the big stories are covered and why other stories don't get air time at all

8:00am - We Need to Talk About Housing: Housing for the Aged Action Group thinks that the recently announced Royal Commission into aged care doesn't go far enough. HAAG Executive Officer Fiona York thinks that we need to talk about retirement villages and other housing for our elders

8:15am - "Agressive Nationalism": LaTrobe Uni Associate Proffessor Gwenda Tavan comes on 3CR to talk about the recent backlash against a 9 year old who refused to stand for the Australian National Anthem. Where have we seen this "agressive nationalism" before?
