I'm a digital adviser and PhD student in media from Wollongong, Australia. I write and record at loungeruminator.net, co-host at hemisphericviews.com and share my Feld Notes podcast on Micro.blog, which explores family history.

This time, Penka shares thoughts and memories of seeing her daughter Tanya (Tatjana) becoming engaged and married to an Australian, named William.
S1 E9 — Remembering Toni
Penka bravely and generously recounts the loss of her son, Toni.
S1 E8 — Working as Migrants
This time, Penka shares what it was like for her and Petar to work in Australia with limited English. Also her ever-present clock makes its loudest contribution so far.
