Rudd and me: the PM, the editor and beers with his ‘Tele boys’ While he now claims to have been smited by NewsCorp, the truth is Kevin Rudd enjoyed one of the greatest armchair rides Australian politics has ever seen. I know. I was holding one of the armchairs. This is how he desperately courted me. Border farce: ‘It’s political. And parochial’ Expats say the stubbornly closed WA border is creating unnecessary grief for the diaspora.

Ear Snacks for Parents: Anti-Racist Parenting with Alphabet Rockers' Kaitlin McGaw & Tommy Shepherd
It’s been a while, but as we said in our last episode -- we’re still here. We miss you all. As parents and people in this world, we are thinking a lot about the Black Lives Matter movement and racial injustice. As makers of some of the sounds and ideas that go into your kids’ ears, we feel a special connection to your family and a responsibility to address this topic -- anti-racism -- thoughtfully with you and your children on Ear Snacks. Kaitlin McGaw and Tommy Shepherd of Alphabet Rockers generously offered to have a conversation with us about anti-racism, anti-racist parenting, making progressive media for kids and their ongoing Grammy-nominated musical work about identity, race, gender and so much more including their anti-racism course for families: We Got Work to Do. We hope this episode designed for parents (though not inappropriate for kids, we'll release a separate episode intended for young listeners) can help open or enhance conversations that you're having to further the dismantling of racism in our homes, our media, and our communities. There's lots of work to do, and it isn't easy -- but you are not alone. We plan to follow this conversation up with episodes design for children - and we would love your involvement! If you or your children participated in a Black Lives Matter protest, conversation about race, or other form of activism this summer, we would love to have you on the show. Please let us know if your family would like to get involved with these kinds of episodes and we’ll reach out to you as soon as we can. Know someone doing work in this area who we should talk to? Please introduce us! We believe the most impactful way we (Andrew Barkan and Polly Hall, the humans) can affect change is to empower children to think deeply, in an age-appropriate way, about what is happening in society at this moment. We are thankful to connect with parents like you - parents who are raising thoughtful, open, and brave kids. We can be the change we want to see in this world.

How Ultra Violette Created A Cult Brand Almost Instantly
There are some products that you need but just aren’t fun to buy. Coat hangers, staples, ironing boards, flour... Here’s an idea for a business: find a product nobody likes buying and then make a version of it that people will describe as a “cult buy”. That’s what Ava Matthews and her business partner Bec Jefferd did when they noticed that skincare was having a moment but sunscreens were a product that just weren't very…. sexy. They changed that, almost overnight, with Ultra Violette. Their range of sunscreens come in distinctive bright blue packaging that you've probably seen all over Instagram. So, how did they do it? What was their approach to revolutionising a whole category?  Mia Freedman chatted to Ava to find out.  THE END BITS: Check out Ultra Violette here - https://ultraviolette.com.au/.  You can follow Ava Matthews on Instagram here - https://www.instagram.com/avamatthews/?hl=en.  Are you busting to start your own business but you don’t know where to start?
