New LiSTNR original podcast explores First Nations issues


LiSTNR has released the first episode of a new original podcast: Blak Matters.

It’s an exploration of First Nations issues, and why they matter. Published weekly, each episode provides an honest conversation between accomplished radio presenter Michael ‘MC’ Christian and his long-time friend Teela Reid.

Reid is a proud Wiradjuri and Wailwan woman, lawyer, essayist, storyteller and co-founder of @blackfulla_bookclub, a platform that honours First Nations’ ancestors as the original storytellers.

With the forthcoming referendum, Blak Matters is a welcoming space for all Australians to become more informed on what has led to this point, what the Voice means, and how it could change the future of Australia.

Reid says “Blak Matters is an important project that aims to centre First Nations issues and activism in our national life and the lives of everyday Australians. These crucial conversations have the power to change the very trajectory of our nation’s story.”

Christian says “I hope that through this podcast we can entertain and educate, to make people’s vote on the Voice more straightforward.”

LiSTNR Original Podcasts Head of News and Information, Melanie Withnall says “We are extremely proud of the team who created this informative and valuable content, extending the LiSTNR newsroom’s high quality local and national news podcasts.”

The first episode of Blak Matters is available now on LiSTNR or wherever you get your podcasts.
