Thanks

I've never written a podcast review before, but I really wanted to write and say thank you both for your podcast. I grew up as a white woman in Queensland in the 80s and 90s. As a little kid, 5 and 6, I was lucky to be part of a program in which indigenous elders introduced us to the country we were growing up in. It helped me to see that we were trespassers in someone else's sacred land, and the least we could do would be to behave with respect toward its custodians. I could also see that this was the opposite of what was happening to the indigenous people around me. But here’s the thing; if you are cloaked in whiteness, you have to work to remember how insidious it is. Privilege makes it is easy to forget, and it is a bummer to keep reminding myself that my comfort comes at the expense of others. You two are my heroes for embodying and articulating why it is so important to remember. Thank you.

Excellent

I'm an American who will soon be visiting Australia for the first time to see my husband's family. I wanted to better understand the current issues there, especially race. America has huge issues with this, and I was curious what the current climate was like in Australia.
This podcast is so well produced, and such a joy to listen to. I feel like I can gain a little understanding, and I thoroughly enjoy hearing what hosts and guests alike have to say. Highly recommend!
