Start Making Sense

Hi! Welcome to Start Making Sense. We are a show about internet culture, power and politics.

What began as a look at the internet under lockdown quickly span out into conspiracies and disinformation campaigns. Now it also covers the wellspring of a global protest movements against racism and injustice. It's fair to say the online world is changing at a dizzying pace. We're hoping it will start making sense soon.

This show is produced on Gadigal and Bidjigal Lands of the Eora Nation and is proudly community radio.
