Each week in the Good Weekend, Benjamin Law asks public figures to discuss the subjects we’re told to keep private by getting them to roll a die. The numbers they land on are the topics they’re given. Join us for a special live edition of Dicey Topics at SWF with Chloe Hayden and Don Watson coming clean about some dark secrets.
As seen in The Sydney Morning Herald's ‘Good Weekend’ magazine.
