Talking about the unresolved genocide of Australia’s First Nations is fraught with social peril, not least for a white bloke of insane privilege like me. But I definitely don’t think that’s a valid reason not to discuss it!Truth is, this episode is big.I don’t want you to listen to it because it’s gonna give me another click or play or subscriber or whatever. In context of this conversation, I couldn’t care less about any of that. I want you to listen to this episode because I genuinely want you to consume the wisdom of these women, and their insights as modern indigenous people on why racial inequity is still such a shitfight in this country.Australia is beautiful, but she is culturally broken, and we’re all suffering for it whether we realise it or not.***IG @lucky__roland
