Michael Thorn and Walkley Award winner Di Martin launch DrinkTank’s foray into the world of Podcasts

FARE’s Chief Executive Michael Thorn says Australia’s alcohol industry is using Big Tobacco’s shady and deceptive tactics to stop much needed alcohol reform in the Northern Territory.

Mr Thorn says alcohol industry submissions to the Territory’s Alcohol review deliberately try to mislead the inquiry.

In Drink Tank’s first podcast, Michael speaks to former ABC RN presenter, and guest contributor with FARE, Di Martin.

He begins by describing the extent of the Territory’s alcohol problem, and FARE’s simple solution to minimising harm.

Drink Tank aims to generate meaningful commentary and debate about alcohol policy, and to provide a platform for all members of the Australian community to share their views and concerns.

Our goal is for the Drink Tank community to engage in robust discussion about alcohol, highlighting a broad spectrum of views and voices, and ultimately to raise the profile of alcohol as an issue national of importance.
