In this episode, the Sentinel's editor Peter Hackney and features editor Travis de Jonk explore the top headlines of the week, including the $40 million CBD revitalisation funding investment from NSW State government and the City of Sydney council; reports of rising Anti-Asian sentiment and racism in Sydney; and we look at the two big, fun and thought provoking festivals taking over our city.
This week our special guest on the show is artistic director of the Sydney Writers Festival, Michael Williams, who tells us about his new role and his extraordinarily accessible and politically charged 2021 program for the festival.
