Do you really need to go to the emergency room for that? This week, our favourite GP, Dr. Lane, joins us for a live convo about when you should go to the hospital and when it can wait until you can see your GP.

This week was a huge episode on Wavelength tackling two important topics: men's mental health and the decriminalisation of sex work. Tammy Franks, Greens MLC, joins us in the studio to discuss the bill she got through the upper house of parliament, which could see sex work decriminalised in our state before the year's end. We discuss how likely the bill is to become law, why these protections are necessary, and the alarming situations currently facing sex workers in SA. Reporter Arj also...

Do we take women's health seriously enough? Conditions like endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and ovarian cancer too often go undiagnosed, with women being refused referrals and - in the case of one woman we spoke to - told to take Gaviscon instead. Madison spoke to several women who've had to fight the medical system to get a proper diagnosis and treatment, two women call into the show to share their unbelievable stories, and we chat to practitioner Kylie Rankin about what women...

Do we have a race issue in sport? Two recent documentaries about the Adam Goodes controversy have got the nation talking - we speak to the AFL and the SANFL direct to find out what they're doing to curb vilification within the game. Guest host Luca joins us to discuss the ins and outs of this prickly issue. Also on this week's Wavelength with Zane and David, we delve into a brief history of the Thebarton Theatre (just in case it gets demolished by roadworks!) and we hit the streets to ask...

Are people on Newstart getting a fair go? The government won't raise the rate, recipients are getting chased by robodebts, it's hard to access and it's easy to have your payments cut off. We try to unpack the myriad of issues with the Unemployed Workers Union and a Melbourne law professor, and we chat to a caller who was chased for over $20,000 of debt. On this week's Wavelength with Zane and Jack (filling in for David who's sick) we also speak to Rumpus, the Adelaide theatre collective...

Is there a right way to protest? Would you break the law if you thought it would bring about change in the world? We sit down with the Extinction Rebellion, and go along to the student climate change protests to find out about "arrestable action" and the lengths protest groups are willing to go to. On this week's Wavelength with Zane and David, we get some breaking news about the Hong Kong protests during the show, and David talks about his parents travelling through Hong Kong in the middle...

What do you actually have to pay for when you see the doctor? With private health insurance memberships dropping rapidly among young people in Australia, we thought we'd welcome back our favourite GP, Dr. Lane, for a live in-studio Q&A. What does private health insurance actually cover? Why do some doctors bulk-bill but some don't? Listen to find out the answers to these questions and more! On this week's Wavelength with Zane and David, we also look into Adelaide's new treatment centre for...

Do you think outdoor events in the city should end earlier? Adelaide City Councillor Rob Simms joins us LIVE to discuss the push to bring the curfew forward in certain spaces. City residents are complaining about the noise generated by certain events and festivals, but are we at risk of turning Adelaide into a "killjoy capital"? On this week's Wavelength with Zane and David, we also investigate whether we should be worried about radiation from the 5G network damaging our health. We send...

Do our teachers deserve better conditions? They get plenty of holidays, good super and they finish work at 3pm, but teachers say they are overworked, unsupported, and do not get adequate pay for the work they do out of hours. We speak to teachers direct from the statewide strikes a few weeks ago, and to the Australian Education Union to get more detail about the issues teachers actually face. On this week's Wavelength with Zane and David, we also tell the story of Samuel Weavers, the...

Is it fair to be fired over what you say outside of work? Israel Folau is currently arguing his case in court, but what about those of us who aren't millionaire rugby players? We speak to an Adelaide woman who was barred from a promotion over an innocuous tweet, and an employment law expert about how social media clauses in contracts actually work. On this week's Wavelength with Zane and David, we also take you into the "rockstar" life of an Adelaide Chess Grandmaster, hit the streets to...
