McDonald's Employment
McDonald's is the largest employer of young people in Australia, giving many teenagers their first step into the workforce. But some former workers accusing the fast food giant of 'churning' young workers to save on wages.
Marawi
Last year Marawi became a battleground after it was captured by militant supporters of Islamic State. Government soldiers may have crushed the uprising, but one year on the city remains in ruins and thousands of people are still unable to return to their homes.
Farmers and Climate change
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has dismissed calls for coal powered energy to be phased out by 2050, as recommended by the world's leading climate change body, the IPCC. But you don't have to convince Australian farmers of that - many who are already struggling with drought now accept that climate change is making the world a hotter place.
The laundromat
Vanguard Laundry looks like any ordinary commercial laundry, but there's more to it than that. It's a social enterprise, staffed by people who've experienced mental illness and long-term unemployment, and it's changing lives.

Press Freedom Recently there's been a lot of talk in the media about the media! Earlier this month the house of a News Corp journalist and the offices of the ABC were raided by the Australia Federal Police. They were investigating possible crimes that they said were committed when people gave secret information to journalists. But some say the raids are a bad thing for freedom of the press. We look at what press freedom is, why it's important and why its sometimes controversial. Aboriginal Flag Debate Last week there was some debate about the Aboriginal flag and who should be able to use it. It came after the AFL and several companies were asked to stop selling clothing with the flag on it. We look at the history of the flag and who has the right to sell its image and why. Refugee Week Thursday is World Refugee Day, which is dedicated to raising awareness of the millions of people who have to leave their homes because of war, persecution or disaster. We find out more about what it means to be a refugee and meet a family who came to Australia as refugees. Gender and Sport A female footy player in South Australia has been given a six-week ban after she filled in a local men's team. It got many asking whether women should be allowed to compete alongside men in Aussie Rules and other games. Bigfoot Last week there was big news about ... Bigfoot! For decades there have been stories about the famous hairy creature, and some swear they've seen it roaming around forests in the US. But last week Bigfoot was dealt a big blow when the FBI released new information about its own hunt for Sasquatch. We find out more about Bigfoot and some other mythical creatures around the world.
