Jane Connory returns with BROAD Designs with an exclusive interview with Donna Kaz AKA Aphra Behn an UNMASKED Guerrilla Girl !

ABOUT Donna : ‘Donna Kaz’s debut book, UN/MASKED, Memoirs of a Guerrilla Girl On Tour publishes on November 1, 2016. Always an outsider, she takes one step further into invisibility and becomes a Guerrilla Girl, a feminist activist who never appears in public without wearing a rubber gorilla mask and who uses the name of a dead woman artist instead of her own. As a Guerrilla Girl, Aphra Behn creates comedic art and theater that blasts the blatant sexism of the theater world while proving feminists are funny at the same time.’

Next up is a special interview with Carmel Johnston a “simulated astronaut” from the U.S who is in Australia on a speaking tour  :

‘an environmental scientist, was the crew commander of NASA’s most recent Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS) project. As part of this mission, she spent an entire year living with five other scientists in an 11-metre-wide geodesic dome on the Mars-like slopes of Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii.

The focus of the study, which concluded in August last year, was psychological. NASA wanted to learn individual stress reactions and group cohesion in an intensely cramped, isolated environment comparable to life in a space vessel on Mars. The researchers had to wear full space suits any time they left the dome, and resources were painstakingly rationed and recycled’.

Sonja also chats with poet,activist and broadcaster and feminist Lana Woolf on being racially profiled and those experiences of Women of Colour in Australia and what we can do.

Added to this Special Podcast are some highlights from feminists who have appeared on BROAD.
