Gordon Wood sues the state of NSW.

The death of Caroline Byrne in 1995 at The Gap in Sydney has been one of the most high profile and fiercely debated mysteries in the last 22 years. In 2008, Gordon Wood was found guilty of Caroline Byrne's murder and spent three years in prison before being acquitted of all charges in 2012. The case is now back in the media spotlight, with Gordon Wood suing the NSW Government for malicious prosecution and wrongful imprisonment. Jamelle Wells, a Senior Court Reporter for ABC Sydney, has been following the case closely and spoke with Jess for Sunday Breakfast.

No Feminism Before 9: misdirected outrage and penalty rates

The shock jocks get riled up over President of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Keysar Trad's clumsy comments that domestic violence is a 'last resort'.

Meanwhile more pages are printed by the Murdoch press condemning Yassmin Abdel-Mageid over a naieve but well meaning statement that 'Islam is the most feminist religion'.

Jess and Eliza discuss how the problem with both lies in an unwillingness to approach the intense scrutiny that befalls any Muslim person who makes a gaffe... a scrutiny far more seirious than a non-Muslim would face.

And in all fairness we should be busy getting riled up over the reductions to penalty rates, the loss of income that will disproportionately affect women.

 

Uber Opportunities: Helping the hard-of-hearing community get to work

With 1 in 6 Australians affected by hearing loss, and a 2008 report stating deaf people are three times more likely to be below the poverty line; Connect Hearing and Uber have a new initiative that could help turn that around.

Lauren McNee, a Clinical Audiologist from Connect Hearing spoke to Jess about the opportunities that the rideshare app can bring.

Word of the Week - Eistedfodd

Eistedfodd. What is it? What does it mean? Where does it come from? If only someone could tell me! Eleanor sits down with Jess today to discuss the origin of this peculiar word and why its closer to home then you'd think.
