Rodney Lewis, a pioneer of elder law, shares his knowledge on costs related to aged care and talks about discrimination and human rights issues faced by people in the residential care system.

In Nostalgia Town, we meet up with Prof Ian Frazer AO (pictured).  Prof Frazer has saved countless lives with research that led to the development of a vaccine that prevents cervical cancer.

We head to Canberra for Steppin’ Out to meet Heinrich Stefanik, vice-president of Multicultural Service Radio Station – CMS FM 91.1 Heinrich is one of the country’s leading lights in ethnic community radio.

He has also been involved in the National Multicultural Broadcasters Council and the Community Broadcasting Foundation.

In Money Extra, Prof Michael Sherris tells us how we can get a better deal to counter the escalating costs of insurance premiums. A Professor in the University of NSW’s School of Risk and Actuarial Studies, Sherris is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia, the Institute of Actuaries (UK) and the Society of Actuaries (North America).
