Putting oneself on the line as an activist can be costly – not only in terms of career, family and romantic relationships, but emotional and mental health. So what does it feel like for those who have publicly gone into battle? Youth activist and poet Aretha Brown, HIV activist Nic Holas, ex-Greens MP Scott Ludlam and former race discrimination commissioner Tim Soutphommasane talk about how best to survive in the fray.

Recorded live at the 2019 Melbourne Writers Festival.
