10 min
As Australian states and territories take small steps to reopening internal borders, it raises the question of when international borders might be able to reopen too.

Closing the country's borders with the rest of the world has been successful in managing the risk of coronavirus entering Australia undetected.

On today's show:

* Rethinking our international border restrictions. Could we reopen to more countries?

And it's also time for another round of Quick Fire Friday!
