Can you be an ethical omnivore?

Intensive farming practices have left us, the consumer, disengaged from the sources of our food, and questions are increasingly being raised about how to eat with a conscience. After 14 years running Feather and Bone, a butchery of ethically sourced meats in Sydney, the proprietors Laura Dalrymple and Grant Hilliard have put together a book to answer some of the questions they routinely get asked. In their business, they are familiar with all the farmers at sustainably-managed local farms, where they purchase whole carcasses - a dying trend. They know everything about how these animals live, how they’re treated during their lives, and how they’re slaughtered, which, they argue, has a huge effect on the taste of the meat.

China's transformation under Xi Jinping

Right now, Xi Jinping has more power than any former Chinese leader, including its Emperors. His transformation of the CCP, with an additional layer of government, an expanded army, the re-education of China's citizens about its true past and the world, is unprecedented. COVID-19 has also presented the perfect opportunity to increase the deep data surveillance of its people, which has reached almost 99 per cent of the population.

Digging up Armageddon

The idea of Armageddon - the last great battle - come from a place where multiple battles were fought in ancient times. It’s known as Megiddo, now a World Heritage-listed archaeological site in northern Israel. Unearthing the past of Megiddo, in a major digging expedition in the 1920s, involved many behind the scenes battles, as well.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg otherwise known as Notorious RBG

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. She had a bold dream of becoming a lawyer in the 1950s, but faced discrimination at university and in getting a job. So she went on to prove to the Supreme Court that discrimination on the basis of gender violated the 14th Amendment's equal protection Clause and eventually she reached the pinnacle of her career to be appointed to the Supreme Court. Bruce Shapiro and the director of the documentary RBG, Betsy West, discuss her contribution to modern American society and how she became Notorious RBG.

Amber's ancient journey from the Baltic to Adriatic Seas

Ninety percent of the world's amber comes from a mine in Kaliningrad on the Baltic Coast and from there it is exported around the world. Not only is amber beautiful - it can also contain insect time travellers trapped inside. But the appeal of amber is not new. Nero loved amber and sent emissaries north to bring amber back to him. This route is now recognised as a historic trail you can follow, as author, cartographer and amber lover CJ Schuler did.
