Nancy Cushing and Gonzalo Villanueva were featured on a recent episode of Radio National’s Rear Vision, discussing their research into the history of live export. If you missed the original you can catch up here: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/rearvision/australia%E2%80%99s-live-export-debate/9698652  This follows on from Nancy’s articles in The Conversation and Environment and History on Australia’s history of live exports. It’s great to see this essential historical context being brought to bear on such an important issue.
