  2. 06 | Wil Anderson is sorry for the thing he said - Dishy - ABC Radio

    Wil Anderson turns up to talk about food, but it’s an apology Matthew Hayden is after. The comedian, Wilosophy podcaster and host of ABC TV’s Gruen says sorry for sledging Haydos 20 years ago. He also tells Haydos about the perils of trying to coin your own nickname — there’s a good reason you’re not calling this vegetarian ‘Doughnuts’ Anderson today.

  4. Why would Australia ban TikTok? - The Signal - ABC Radio

    TikTok’s reputation is changing. It used to be known as a Gen Z haunt and lip sync repository, but now there’s growing anxiety about its links to the Chinese Government.

So what’s motivating the concerns about TikTok’s links to China? How is the company answering back? And would Australia really ban it? Featured: Ariel Bogle, Technology Reporter, ABC Science Unit

  5. How border closures failed in 1919 - The Signal - ABC Radio

    100 years ago, when we were up against the Spanish Flu, Australia failed to contain the pandemic, and the weak spot was the border between Victoria and New South Wales. After that, the disease spread throughout the country, infecting hundreds of thousands and killing at least 15,000 people. The parallels to 2020 are striking. So will Australia’s containment measures succeed where they failed a century ago?
