Well, it's wonderful to have a chat to our next guest for the first time in 2024. She is a member of the South Australian Legislative Council, has been since 2022, representing One Nation. She's also a qualified veterinarian and a mom of three. Welcome back to Flow FM, Sarah Game.

Hi Sarah.

Weren't you busy enough?

Oh, you're doing a wonderful job. Mum of three, that's a full-time job on its own, but you've got some terrific platforms and I want to touch on a couple of them today. Looking forward to the rest of this year, men's mental health, I've got to be honest, a full disclosure, I had a look at your Facebook and your website and I teared up some of those videos on there. I wasn't expecting that reaction.

Yeah, it's probably not the perception, is it? Those stats are really surprising.

Well, that $100,000 announcement, that's great news. And my question was going to be where will the funding go? So you've mentioned an app and all of that funding will go towards that app.

Well, I know from personal experience, my wife comes with me to every appointment because she says I come home and don't have the answers that she would have asked. So either I get a list given to me or she comes in with me. So I think it's a terrific idea. Another topic that's really relevant to our listeners, because we have a great representation And I notice there was an overtaking lanes project. What's that all about?

So has there been any transparency over that?

Everything old is new again, Sarah. That's absolutely valid. I do want to also quickly mention that something else that you're passionate about. Currently, we've got a council election candidate nomination process that allows for the potential for nominations to be confidential. This means that the general public might not be able to scrutinise nominations until after the nomination period is closed. You want to change that, don't you?

Sarah, it's been a pleasure to talk to you, this is my first time having a chat and one of the questions that's on everyone's lips and in the tradition of full transparency, with football season fast approaching, I need to find out who you support in the AFL?

I'm locking you in as a crow supporter, that's fine. Thank you so much for giving us some time and I hope we can continue the chats later on in 2024.
