Quinceañeras (Gabriela Coronado) — SUPPORTER DRIVE SPECIAL
In Mexico and across Latin America, and Australia, a quinceañera is a celebration of turning fifteen. It’s usually a party, usually for a girl and you might have seen a version of one in Jane the Virgin, One Day at a Time, or even Sweet 15: Quinceañera. But there’s much more to this tradition than just pastel dresses and high heels. Though there are those, too. Doctor Gabriela Coronado is a Mexican-Australian anthropologist whose areas include the intercultural complexities of cultures. She’s been to a few quinces. Links for this episode: Support FBi Radio! We got lots of options for you at https://fbiradio.com/support/ Las Rosas launches September 29th on YouTube. Follow the show on Instagram, or join them at Casula Powerhouse for the series launch on October 6th.

Dinner Table Racism (Nur Alam and Yvonne Perczuk)
People say some stupid stuff when they think they're among friends. "All Jews" are this, maybe. Or "all Muslims" are that. Do you confront casual racism when you hear it, in private places like the dinner table, from family or friends? Or do you bite your tongue? Two Sydney women weren't sure that straight up confrontation would work all by itself, so they helped write a play that worked it. Nur Alam and Yvonne Perczuk are part of the writing collective Abe's Babes, which wrote the play The Laden Table about casual racism around Sydney's Muslim and Jewish dinner tables. Links for this episode: Follow Abe's Babes on Facebook to keep up with future productions of the play. Bakehouse Theatre's production of the Laden Table has a short video of the production. Some short explainers, if you want to know more about the Nakba and the Holocaust. Songs from Dinner Table Racism: Poyeyu (feat.

Making a Fashion Festival in Western Sydney (Thuy Ngyuen)
Just because you don’t see people like yourself up on stage in international fashion shows doesn’t mean you don’t want good fashion of your own. There are great designers making clothes that include Fijian design, hijabs or Vietnamese fabric. And all of those just in Sydney’s western suburbs. Filmmaker Thuy Ngyuen made the documentary Against the Grain about the Western Sydney Fashion Festival. She also helped make the Festival happen in the first place. Links from this episode: Keep up to date with the Western Sydney Fashion Festival See some of the designers we were talking about in Thuy’s short doco about the Festival, Against the Grain.

Ordinary Drones (Peter Robinson)
There are exciting drones and there are definitely scary drones. But drones have quieter things going on as well. They’re already at work doing ordinary stuff: working in agriculture, in infrastructure, filming the news. Peter Robinson is a journalist at the ABC, and has been working on pioneering some of those moves for the organisation. Links from this episode: CASA’s Can I Fly There? app. Four Corners’ water theft story, with its drone-shot footage. The drone battery fire on board a plane at Melbourne airport. New York Mag writer Benjamin Wallace Wells described a drone as something that can move you “back and forth between the intimate and the vast.” Wanna buy a drone now?

Peace Journalism (Zainab Abdul-Nabi)
War in the news is kind of hard to watch. Conflict gets presented like sports — two sides: one wins, one loses. Advocates of peace journalism think that war can be covered better than this. And, by reporting more to us than just a zero-sum game, it can offer ways of dealing with conflict that aren’t just about violence and who’s committing it. Zainab Abdul-Nabi is a former journalist who’s especially interested in using peace journalism to look at Al Jazeera’s coverage of the Bahrain pro-democracy uprising in 2011, during the “Arab Spring”. Links from this episode: Zainab’s article looking at Bahrain’s uprising through the lens of Peace Journalism.

Midwives, Doctors and Rabbits (Amelia Dale)
Almost three hundred years ago, a woman called Mary Toft was interrogated a bunch of doctors in London. She was interrogated after having given birth to a litter of rabbits. Or so she claimed. But, in that era, one of the strangest things about the case wasn’t just the rabbits: it was that doctors — “male midwives” — were muscling into the giving birth business. Amelia Dale teaches at Sydney University and talked about Toft in her PhD thesis. Links from this episode: Learn more about Mary Toft here, or listen to the BBC’s take on her story.

William Hogarth was a visual satirist, who made fun of the scandal around Toft with this engraving Songs from Midwives, Doctors and Rabbits: Ojos Del Sol — Y La Bamba Akogare — Super Magic Hats Copza Luca — Adrian Simionescu and Orchestre Marin Ioan (Gajo Dilo soundtrack) Slip Away — Kim Boekbinder See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Milky Way is Disappearing (Angel Lopez-Sanchez)
There’s this thing that’s disappearing in cities across the world: the entire Milky Way. Light pollution means that more and more people can’t see our own galaxy in the sky.

Angel Lopez-Sanchez is an astronomer at the the Australian Astronomical Observatory (AAO) and Macquarie University who knows what we’re missing and what we can do about it.

How to Close All of Italy's Asylums if You're a Basaglia (John Foot)
In 1978, Italy passed a law to shut down its Asylums. The asylums were ageing, horrfying institutions that weren’t so great at looking after people. Two people at the centre of the change were Franco Basaglia and his wife, Franca Ongaro Basaglia. Historian John Foot accidentally discovered this story at a documentary screening, and wrote a book on them. He explains why what they did is such a big thing. Links from this episode: John’s book is available in all the places. The documentary that moved John was called San Clemente, by Raymond Depardon and Sophie Ristelhueber. If you’re interested in how this ‘deinstutionalisation’ works with current mental health services, one of the best round ups is from the US (covering their system, but similar dilemmas). Of course, it’s by John Oliver.

Reading What Spies Write About You (Lars Rutz)
Lars Rutz grew up in the East Berlin bohemian scene in communist Germany in the 80s. Like a lot of people in the East, he wanted to leave. But East Germany was a police state, with an ever-present spy agency, the Stasi. What is it like to try to escape a place like that? And what is it like to read what the spies wrote about you, years later? Links from this episode: The Stasi really did have a library of smells. Snowden really did have a statue in Berlin, along with Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange. Though they started in Berlin, the three statues are part of an art project, Anything to Say, which is touring the world. Lars' lawyer was Wolfgang Vogel, who was the other lawyer in Bridge of Spies. (Not the one played by Tom Hanks.) Lars was suggested, accidentally, by Cassie Findlay. Much of this story was originally presented by Lars at a talk for the Australian Society of Archivists.

Grandmas (Kristen Hawkes)
Why is menopause a thing? Only three species really do it: short-finned pilot whales, killer whales and humans beings. It’s biologically strange. And it gives us another biologically strange thing: grandmas. Dr Kristen Hawkes (University of Utah) is the lead proponent of the Grandmother Hypothesis, which says that grandmas became a thing in human evolution because having them was a pretty good deal, evolutionarily speaking. Links from this episode: Listen to Kristen’s full lecture at the Science Festival at Sydney Uni’s Sydney Ideas podcast. (She’s introduced by local collaborator, Peter Kim.) The Atlantic also has a bit more about the Grandmother Hypothesis. If you just want to know about other animals that do go through menopause, National Geographic has you covered.

The Unreliability of Witness Testimony (Celine Van Golde)
If you’re a fan of Serial, Law & Order, Making a Murderer, you’ve probably spent a bit of time watching TV police making people confess to their criminal acts and listening to witnesses place someone at the scene of the crime.

LGBTIQ Domestic Violence (Moo Baulch)
This episode talks about domestic violence in the LGBTIQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bixexual, Trans, Intersex, Queer) community. It's probably not appropriate for children and could be a trigger for some listeners. If you or someone you know is affected by domestic violence you can talk to someone on 1 800 RESPECT. In an emergency, call the police on 000. Lots more options further down these show notes. Over the course of the last year Australia seems to have paid more attention to the issue of domestic violence than it ever has before. But, even so, many people are unaware that this isn't just an issue for the mainstream community. It's something that happens in the LGBTIQ community as well. Moo Baulch is the CEO of Domestic Violence NSW. She'll walk us through what often happens and what you can do about it.

Making it Big and Making it Small in Comics (Matt Huynh)
It seems a bit like comic books are everywhere these days: dominating our screens from Iron Man to Jessica Jones. But this isn't the first time that there's been a comic book boom.
