#3: Understanding Orlando with Asiel Adan Sanchez
The attack on LatinX night at Pulse in Orlando was the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history and the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since September 11. No gunman has killed more individuals in the U.S in one shooting. In the wake of the incident, gun control, gay hate crime, racism, revenge and terrorism have all been cited. How do we understand Orlando? Asiel Adan Sanchez joined us to give us his perspective.
#2: Trump Beyond "WTF?" with Dr David Smith
When celebrity property tycoon Donald Trump made his presidential bid, it was met with a lot of LOL and WTF. But now, a lot of OMG is setting in, with Trump sitting pretty as the Republican presumptive nominee. What’s going on in the States that could give rise to The Donald? And what are the implications of a Trump Presidency? To get our heads around it, we’ve called on the smarts of Dr David Smith, Senior Lecturer in American Politics and Foreign Policy at the US Studies Centre (USYD).
#1: "Just Get Over It" with Luke Pearson
The University of New South Wales came under attack for suggesting students should refer to Australia as being ‘invaded', not 'discovered’. The mainstream media took issue with their guidelines, with the Daily Telegraph saying they were ‘rewriting the history books’, and Kyle Sandilands saying it happened 200 years ago, and that indigenous Australians should "just get on with life." Professor James Arvanitakis and Ash Berdebes spoke with writer and educator Luke Pearson from IndigenousX about racism, patriotism and the idea that Indigenous Australians should just ‘get over it’.
