Cycles of disadvantage are numerous, complex and greater than the sum of their parts. This podcast is about big ideas and novel approaches to breaking them. Is social mobility still possible? Is the concept of a meritocracy fair? How can massive, global systems be changed? How can we prevent people from coming into contact with the criminal justice system? In conversation with public policy experts, thought-leaders, and people experiencing disadvantage, Life’s Lottery delves into the latest research and new programs that are achieving meaningful and lasting change. Join hosts Glyn Davis and Jeni Whalan from the Paul Ramsay Foundation in this five part series that seeks new information, data and ways of thinking about the complexities of disadvantage that persist across generations.
