Welcome to the Know Show. Our screens are full of football (or soccer) mayhem, however, there has been a lot of news beyond the upsets, especially in regard to human rights. Whether it’s focusing on the treatment of migrant workers who built the World Cup venue or LGBTQIA+ rights, there has also been a big focus on the leadership failures at FIFA, as well as questions on the decision to hold the event in Qatar in the first place.

On our show, we like to look at all the layers and angles to news stories, because nothing is ever straight forward, and there is a point of view we are not getting outside the Middle East, and that, of course, is the perspective of its citizens. Regardless, it leaves us wondering – are human rights negotiable?

We are thrilled that Bavani Periasamy has agreed to join us this week, hot off the back of the Malaysian Elections. Bavani is a gratitude advocate, who helps leaders build an appreciative work culture to improve productivity.

We’re also happy that Grant 'The Beat' Bosnick will be joining us again in Tim Wade’s absence, as Tim is enjoying a long overdue family reunion in the UK.

Lots going on, lots to discuss, come and join us.

The Know Show is a Livestream held every fortnight on Friday, where Andrea T Edwards, Tim Wade and Joe Augustin, and at least one special guest, review the news that’s getting everyone’s attention, as well as perhaps what requires our attention. We’ll talk about what it means to us, the world and we hope to inspire great conversations on the news that matters in the world today.

The Know Show is based on Andrea T Edwards Weekend Reads, which are published every Saturday on, and covers the climate crisis, topical moments in the world, global politics, business, social issues, and passion/humor/history. Join us.
