The new season will see regular segments including As a Guilty Mum and Product v Pack Shot as well as new segments like The Checkout Dictionary – a consumer-friendly guide to the meaning of marketer-friendly terms like “Fresh”and “Australian Made” and Right On where lapsed lawyer Julian Morrow takes an annoyingly detailed look at the Australian Consumer Law and how you can use it to your advantage.
