Australia’s wool industry is attempting to plug a shearer shortage by investing $10 million in research for everything from robotics to better shed design. Despite being set to become the world’s largest natural gas exporter, Australia may not fully reap all the rewards of this particular resource boom. Homebuyers are having a look outside the capital cities in an attempt to reign in their big city budgets - and the mortgages that go with them. A new program is being rolled out in Victoria where victims and witnesses of crime are being assisted by an emotional support dog while giving evidence. Plus, Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief, joins Joe O’Brien to discuss his latest book: the multi-generational Australian epic Bridge of Clay.
