A month or so ago, I ended up sitting next to award-winning journalist Stan Grant on a flight to and from Wagga Wagga. We got chatting about his work, the 12 months since his speech regarding racism in Australia had gone viral, and we discussed the broader issues in Indigenous communities around Australia.
I’m very grateful to Stan for agreeing to catch up again, this time with a mic in front of him for my #OffCampus section on the TER Podcast, and we chatted about the need to change the narrative around Indigenous communities in Australia.
“Even with the best intentions, some people think near enough is good enough for Aboriginal people” – Stan Grant.
Feel free to listen to the whole podcast below, but my interview with Stan kicks off at 29:32…[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/303932985″ params=”color=ff5500″ width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
