Racism - it's really not one of humanity's best traits...

OK, you probably already knew that.

But you didn't know that we just had a beer with Benny Wilson, Yuggera man and researcher at the National Centre for Indigenous Studies (you know, the other NCIS).  This was wide-ranging and excellent yack about how things are going in Australia viz-a-viz the always light-hearted topic of Indigenous and non-Indigenous relations. Small spoiler: it ain't all bad.

In this episode, we:

  • acknowledged acknowledgement - like when it does, and doesn't, work
  • talked about better and worse ways to respond to being welcomed-to-country in Australia 
  • unpacked "deficit discourse" in national conversations about Indigenous matters, and
  • revealed the magic-silver-wand-bullet that fixes everything! 
OK, one of these things didn't happen. But to find out which one, you'll have to listen to our bloody interesting yarn with Benny.
