Hosted by Eiddwen, Rob and Will

7:00 - 3CR is proud to acknowledge the Kulin Nations as true owners and custodians of the lands from which we broadcast. We pay respect to their elders past and present and acknowledge that their sovereignty was never ceded and a treaty has yet to be signed

7:15 - Extinction Rebellion: Melbourne XR member Violet comes on the show to tell us about upcoming events with climate defenders Extinction Rebellion

7:30 - National Union of Students: NUS national president Desiree Cai calls in to comment on the past Federal Election and what student groups are planning on doing next to fight for climate action, youth, and students

7:45 - Indigenous Wisdom to the Front: Adnyamathanha and Ngarrinjerri scholar Jacinta Koolmatrie speaks on her experience of Indigenous wisdom as a valuable resource in her archaeological research. Hosted by TEDx on Kaurna country, Adelaide

8:00 - Budj Bim as World Heritage: After a recommendation from the International Council of Monuments and Sites last year, Unesco is in the final stages of approving World Heritage site status to the Budj Bim Fish Traps. Located on Gunditjmara country, 40km south of Portland, the fish traps are evidence of Indigenous land management and agricultural practices and they would be the first site in so-called Australia awarded World Heritage status on the sole basis of its Aboriginal cultural significance. Denis Rose of the Gunditj Mirring Traditional Owners' Corporation comes on the show to tell us all about it

8:15 - Big Brother Is Watching You in Darwin: The City of Darwin is using similar surveillance technology used to enforce China's Social Credit system, complete with digital walls used to track movement of people and their phones across invisible barriers. Sociology of Law Senior Lecturer at Macquarie University Peter Rogers comes on the show to tell us what this means and how we should respond. Find more detail in Peter's article on The Conversation
