Adam McManus’ sneaker collection was getting out of hand. So much so that in September 2015 he opened Concrete Jungle Trading. Shelves stocked with a thoughtfully curated mix of classic sneaker brands, short-run collaborations and hard-to-find styles, his dream of creating Brunswick’s “neighborhood destination for all things sneakers and street wear” became a reality. Since opening, Concrete Jungle’s street game is only getting stronger. They’ve recently dropped the dark and spacey result of a partnership between Saucony Originals and The Quiet Life, The Quiet Shadow. The Shadow 5000 silhouette shifts from celestial night to dawn, its coolest feature a marbling of galaxies...

Sydney has the iconic harbour, its beaches and perpetual sunshine; Melbourne boasts a world-class coffee scene, its signature alleyways, and four seasons in one day.

I had heard muttered complaints and throwaway comments about the Sydney lockout laws, but, living in Melbourne, hadn’t given it too much thought until...

I hate corn. It’s everywhere. In everything. It doesn’t even taste good. If it doesn’t get stuck in your teeth, it makes it all the way through your system seemingly intact, undigested, nutritionally useless. A freeloading jerk. Human bodies lack the enzyme that breaks down cellulose, which corn hulls are made of. I’m sure you’ve seen little yellow kernels contentedly peeking out of your toilet bowl.

You know what can fuck right off? Diarrhoea. A modern day shit storm facing our civilisation, diarrhoea remains one of humanity's biggest killers, ending the lives of approximately 1,400 children under 5 every day. For kids living in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, most deaths occur before the age of two. With 40% of the world’s population lacking sufficient access to toilets, 2.5 billion people remain exposed to the deadly disease. It's fucked up, to say the least. So fucked up, it was enough for three blokes named Simon, Jehan and Danny to do something about it. Launching Who Gives...
