Keep up with a popular Radio National program

Aboriginal legal academic, writer, filmmaker, Indigenous rights advocate and Andrew Bolt foe Larissa Behrendt (pictured above) presents a weekly radio show. This podcast lets listeners keep up with the show any time.

Professor Behrendt has dedicated recent shows to the Voice, compiling interview footage from heavy-hitting talents such as Federal Minister Linda Burney, who sees the Voice as a chance “to complete our nation’s birth certificate, the Constitution”.

A recent episode discussed strategies to address the fact Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children were 11 times more likely to be taken into care. Other subjects of interest to PSA CPSU NSW members include Aboriginal homelessness, health care and the shameful overrepresentation in the country’s prison systems.

Not content with politics, episodes also cover the arts from an Aboriginal perspective.

A recent edition also covered Aboriginal voices in the media after the announcement that Stan Grant was leaving the industry in the face of severe racist abuse.
