Welcome to a special weekend edition of The Briefing with guest Andrew Denton.
Andrew is one of Australia’s most loved media identities and after losing his father to a painful death a few years ago he’s been Australia’s most vocal advocate for assisted dying.
Andrew is passionate about having a choice about how we die and has been working to bring in Assisted Dying Laws so none of us have to go through that. He’s travelled the world seeing how the laws work in some of the six other countries that allow it.
Since Andrew has been advocating, Victoria has passed Voluntary Assisted Dying laws and yesterday marked one year since the scheme began.
Today we're joined by Andrew to see how he thinks the laws are working, and if the rest of Australia will follow suit.
