Dan

We have been Google-ised in the sense that we want instant answers... but science takes time (1:02:28)

Ronnie

Education leads to language, which leads to access to information, which leads to empowerment to get work, which leads to financial knowledge and being able to have access to money and wealth, which leads to equal opportunity (0:54:45)

Julie

Equity is about economics versus attitude (0:20:40)

Jon

We don't seem to want to address the truth. It's like two sides of the same coin... I don't know and I don't want to know (0:46:45)

Harry

Audiences are not used to people in authority saying 'I don't know' (0:43:42)
