Is it safe to go outside? Is lockdown easing too fast?

A recent poll of DTYM listeners shows that a majority of you are concerned about restrictions easing too quickly and the impact this could have on your family and community health. So, as lockdown eases, what are our responsibilities? Should we just follow the government advice to the letter or do we need to take additional precautions? Is it safe to go outside and meet people yet? Should our children be in school? JK and Al discuss how we can stay safe and their personal interpretations of how many of the lockdown restrictions they are comfortable with and how they predict the recent easing of restrictions may affect the future.

Skatebording across Auz: Ultra-endurance adventurer Dave Cornthwaite on why he worries about fatherhood

Interview with Dave corn(thwaite). Controversially not a dad (dun dun dun!) but does he remind you or all the worries and doubts you had before you had kids?

Dad's know what it's like to have to endlessly change nappies on 30 minutes sleep all week, but have you skateboarded across Australia? Or taken a push scooter across Japan? Or paddle boarded the length of the Mississippi Maybe Dave should consider that he's already achieved the same level of endurance as fathers do, just in a different way. What does a good dad look like? Will Dave be an angry father? What's his greatest fear for his potential children? Find out in this episode of Don't Tell Your Mum!
