1:20 Drug Foundation concerns about testing

The Drug Foundation has raised concerns about the National Party policy on young beneficiaries being drug tested.

The  $72 million four-year plan to increase support for unemployed young people was released yesterday.

It would mean that those who are struggling to find work because of their drug use they would be offered help.

Ross Bell, executive director the Drug Foundation outlines his concerns to Jesse.

1:35 The Therapist

We speak to American therapist, Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh, whose therapy sessions with musicians and pop stars are currently screening on Sky TV's Viceland channel.

The show is called The Therapist and features his intimate sessions with music artists talking about loss, love and delving into the truths behind their public personas and music.

So how does he get them to open up?
