Hosted by Mundanara Bayles who was born and raised in Redfern (Sydney) Australia and currently lives in Queensland. The Black Magic Woman Podcast is an uplifting conversational style program featuring mainly First Nations people from Australia and around the world sharing their stories about their journey to highlight the diversity amongst First Nations peoples and the resilience of her people. She hopes these stories inspire her listeners and also create a better understanding of what First Nations Peoples culture and history.



Mundanara is guided by Aboriginal Terms of Reference and focusses more on who people are rather than on what they do. Mundanara makes people feel relaxed and comfortable as if they were sitting around the kitchen table just having a yarn. It’s the way First Nations people have been building relationships and getting to know each other for tens of thousands of years. She draws from a long family history in the media industry and has grown up in culturally strong, politically active family who have been at the forefront of the Aboriginal Rights movement since the 1960’s.



Mundanara sees this platform as an opportunity to share her cultural knowledge and insights to her audience in a non confrontational way that brings people along with her to create change for a better Australia. To connect more with Mundanara check out the work she does with her elders at www.theblackcard.com.au.

BlakIgnited ,

Too deadly!

The last podcast with Ken Wyatt was awesome. It connected with me on so many levels. All Australians would benefit from listening to your poddy as you clearly articulate the journey to moving towards healing, reconciliation and most importantly the showcasing of the deadly individuals who are our First Nations people. This modelling stretches far beyond your listeners. Mundanara, I love the way you indirectly challenge the norms of society and have such a soft approach in doing so. Please keep doing exactly as you are. I feel so fortunate to have crossed paths with you in my journey. Thank you!
