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. 

Life’s Lottery probes challenging policy questions: Is social mobility still possible? What happened to the idea of meritocracy in Australia? Can successful local programs be rolled out on a national scale? How could we reimagine prison as a place to connect with individuals and work with them to break intergenerational cycles of incarceration?

Join hosts Glyn Davis and Jeni Whalan from the Paul Ramsay Foundation in conversation with public policy experts, thought-leaders, and people whose lives have been touched by disadvantage. Life’s Lottery is a five-part series that delves into the latest research and new programs that are achieving meaningful and lasting change.
