More about me
I am a non-indigenous Australian yearning to learn about our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage - the real history of this country. These podcast episodes are not my stories - I am just a conduit. The stories come from the hearts and minds of the people who tell them. I hope you enjoy listening to these incredible stories as much as I do!
