On this week's episode I chat to Senator Lynn Ruane about issues around poverty, inequality, and homelessness. I have read Lynn's book about her life and was quite inspired by the hurdles she has overcome to achieve what she had both in education and politics. We discuss teenage pregnancy and the supports necessary to stop that being a barrier to success. We also have a great chat about deciminalisation of drugs of how that can help to stop the poverty cycle.
