This episode by journalism students at Deakin University tells stories about our changing world and how people are finding ways to navigate these new times.
You will meet Australia’s first dental therapy dog who is helping people overcome their fear of going to the dentist, and join theatre workers as they delight in a return to the stage after long lockdowns.
The episode also explores the dangers of a La Nina weather pattern, the problem of inequality in STEM jobs, and the pros and cons of social media influencers, which may make a difference to how you view and use certain platforms.
