Season 2 Episode 3 – Lockdown 2.0: “Fitter, Happier, and More Productive”

August 7, 2020

As Melbournites head into ever more strenuous lockdown conditions, Luke, Melanie and new guest Leila share what's keeping them happy, healthy and hopeful. They survey the scene locally, nationally and internationally, then get into what's working for themselves and their communities, including quotes to inspire and their "desert island discs".

A sister episode to Luke and Nick's first episode of the season, revisiting policy, welfare and the arts. Luke references the amazing Indigenous land rights campaigns discussed during RMIT's "Activism at the Margins" conference from February 2020, which you can view on the Youtube channel here.
