Are our sentencing laws too lenient on sex offenders? (24 August, 2020)

*TRIGGER WARNING* This weeks episode discuss sexual violence. Last year Hamzeh Bahrami tied up and raped a 10-year-old girl multiple times in a Blair Athol toilet block. After initially denying the crime Bahrami eventually pleaded guilty. He was recently sentenced and given a jail term of four years with a minimum of three. However, he can be out in as little two years with time served. Bahrami was given a 40% sentence reduction due to pleading guilty within four weeks of his arrest. In light of this case, the State Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas attempted to pass a private member's bill to lower the sentence reduction clause for serious crimes. We spoke to Mr Malinauskas about the outcome of that bill. Wavelength also spoke to Sonya Ryan, founder of the Carly Ryan Foundation about what else needs to be done in regards to our sentencing laws to help protect us from the dangers of sexual predators. This week Andrew also had a chat with BDO about the pro's and con's of withdrawin...

How has COVID affected our youth's mental health and what's out there for them? (17 August, 2020)

COVID-19 has been devastating for all of us from both a physical health perspective as well as an economic one. However, COVID has also had a serious effect on our young people with a study from Headspace showing that 50% of young people's mental health had gotten worse since the pandemic struck. Our team spoke to both Headspace as well as Youth Opportunities, to find out what resources are out there for people who are having a tough time. Remember if you are having a tough time please reach out for help, you are not alone and there are many services out there that can help you.

What issues do the intersex community still face? (10 August, 2020)

When it comes to issues of inequality we have come a long way, particularly for those of different sexual orientation and those who are gender diverse. However, in the LGBTQI+ community, many people including those who are apart of the queer community often forget about those who identify as intersex.

Should SA ban conversion therapy? (03 August, 2020)

LGBTIQ+ Conversion Therapy has had a long and controversial history, and incredibly, is still legal in South Australia. It seeks to change or suppress a person's sexual orientation or even their gender identity, which is said to have major impacts on LGBTIQ+ people. All this leads to the question, should this practice be banned? We spoke with Equality Australia CEO Anna Brownabout the practice and why it's so detrimental to the LGBTIQ+ community. Nat Cook from SA Labor also had a chat with us about her push to outlaw the practice. Meanwhile, it's an issue that you may not have heard about, but it's having an impact on a number of people around Australia. PFAS chemicals have reportedly been used by the Defence Department in its firefighting foam on bases for training, which is reportedly leading to major drops in nearby property prices as well as health concerns. Joshua Aylward from Shine Lawyers gave us the lowdown on a class-action lawsuit coming up against the Department of Defenc...
