On this week’s Democracy Sausage podcast we take a look at the global climate strike protests, some words of warning from Australian big business, and Pauline Hanson’s family law inquiry.

After millions of people took to the streets as part of the climate strike protests, this week’s Democracy Sausage podcast takes a look at why so many young people don’t feel like the world is getting the climate leadership it needs. Mark Kenny and his guests – Mark Evans, Anneka Ferguson, and Brendan McCaffrie also discuss big business speaking out on social issues, whether Australia can transform its economy, and Pauline Hanson’s family law inquiry.
