Out in the Open brings you real talk about real life. Each week, Piya and the team tackle one timely topic from many different angles with energy, wit, and journalistic rigour. We hear directly from a diverse range of people with personal stories to tell and passionate opinions to share, and invite challenging perspectives into the conversation. We say to the audience: "You're thinking about it - let's talk about it. Out in the open."
