[0:21:00] Architect and Urbanist from London, Silvana Taher joins us to speak about the COVID Windows instagram project. The blog encourages people to take a photo and post an image of their window while in isolation during this COVID period. We discuss the inspiration behind the idea and how our understanding of 'home' may alter in this period. 


[0:36:00] We speak to Bill Browne, a researcher at the Australian Institute regarding a petition which calls on the Australian government to implement an Epidemic Response Committee, to watch over the actions of the government in its response to COVID19. This body would help increase accountability for any mistakes or misdoings and has already been a highly effective tool in New Zealand for maintaining democracy during crisis.  

[0:45:00] Our Tram Thought for this week explores the brave, new world of TikTok, and whether it could democratise entertainment. We explore the new social media craze, authentic vs realist entertainment and how this new platform could create a whole new wave of entertainment in our society. 

[1:05:00] We now listen to Willie Brim, a Traditional Owner, Cultural Custodian, Bush Doctor and Songman of the Buluwai people of Kuranda in Far North Queensland. Willie spoke at the Activism at the Margins conference about his role in songwriting and activism within the Indigenous/ Civil Rights Movement as front man of the Mantaka band.
