Margo Kingston, Peter Clarke and Tim Dunlop come together to talk through the transitions and transformations happening in the world at the moment as we all deal with Covid-19 pandemic. With regular guests from a range of occupations and disciplines, with minds wide open, and a heartfelt desire to see the best of what is possible at this weird moment in the history of the world, we hope #transitzone becomes your alt podcast of choice. #transitzone theme is by Ivan Clarke © at Pang Productions.

The #transitzone is currently producing a series of podcasts examining aspects of the evolving concept and practice of contemporary DEMOCRACY.

The Human Rights Law Centre is an Australian non-government organisation with offices in Sydney and Melbourne.

As part of its remit, it’s running a campaign to bolster democratic vitality and practices in Australia.

As one part of that campaign, the Centre has released a report titled –Selling Out: How powerful industries corrupt our democracy

Of course, this is a very broad topic but the report focuses on three industries: the fossil fuels sector, gambling and the tobacco industry.

The report’s author is a senior lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre, Alice Drury. She discusses her report with Peter Clarke.
