Lizzie O'Shea introduces the constitution and its separation of powers: parliament, executive and judiciary. She explains that in 1975 the biggest crisis in our constitution took place when the Governor General dismissed the Prime Minister, and his elected government. Professor Cheryl Saunders explains that, under the constitution, it is unclear if the Governor-General had the power to dismiss the government. She talks about the constitution as an historical, and at times vague, document. She outlines some of the problems including no mention of citizenship; no pre-amble; and the races power no longer reflects contemporary opinion. Professor Larissa Behrendt reveals that the discussion around recognition and the races power is one argument, but there is a different argument about sovereignty and treaty. She points out that many Aboriginal people would like to have their sovereignty recognised, to be seen as independent nations, rather than just citizens within the one nation. Lizzie O'Shea wraps up by reminding us about the key concerns of the constitution, and that the high court is there to resolve problems that arise when the constitution is vague.

In a world that's becoming more connected by the day and dependence on technology leaves people scrambling when their wifi goes down, sometimes you need to get back to the basics. This week, Kamau Bell does just that as he cuts the cord and heads off the grid to meet the people who're happily living a life on their own terms. Just outside Asheville, North Carolina is a man living completely off of the land while just nearby is a "prepper" who keeps his identity a secret as he prepares for the end of days. Kamau also gets a look at the "Tiny House" movement before travelling to Tennessee, where he visits The Farm, a legendary commune that thrived during the Summer of Love and is still truckin' all these years later.
