Coming up…

September 3: Sad Father’s Day for many Dads

‘Dad’ is a documentary that Karen Hodgkins has made for a higher purpose than looking for film industry awards. This new film is a powerful and emotional appeal to the law makers and the law enforcers to do something for the Dads who are not getting to see their kids after family breakdown. Father’s Day should be a time of rejoicing but for many Dads it is a time of sorrow. Listen to this interview as Karen tells us about her film into the injustices of the Family Court and Child Support systems.


September 10: Male Suicide … World Suicide Prevention Day

Suicide in Australia exceeds the national road toll yet attracts little comparable publicity. It is largely a male tragedy constituting nearly 80% of all suicides. Suicide is the cause of death with the highest gender disparity (333 male deaths for every 100 female deaths according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2012). Anthony Smith, a leading Australian expert, joins us in the studio to tell us all about this ‘silent epidemic’.
