You Can’t Ask That
Kate Seselja is happy for you to ask her anything about her former poker machine addiction. Anything. How could you take money from your own childrens' mouths? Why didn't you just stop? How much debt did you rack up? Why didn't someone at the club report you? You Can't Ask That asks gambling addicts the awkward, inappropriate or uncomfortable questions you've always wanted to know the answers to, but never had the guts to ask. Available until 6 Apr, 2020.
