On 29 November 2017, the Victorian Parliament passed the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2017, which has come to effect in 2019. We open this show with a poem, Things about Dying by Maxine Beneba Clarke, first published in the print edition of the Saturday Paper on June 22, 2019. We speak with Colleen Hartland, a former Australian politician and advocate for voluntary assisted dying. We also speak with Dr Neera Bhatia, an Associate Professor at Deakin Law School.
