Podcast: Indigeneity, Colonialism and Institutional Racism

I was delighted to be asked by the Surviving Society Podcast to present an episode for their Spotlight Series. I asked the brilliant Dr Debbie Bargallie to have a chat about her work on institutional, racism in the Australian Public Service – out soon with Aboriginal Studies Press as Unmasking the Racial Contract : Indigenous voices on racism in the Australian Public Service – and we touched on many other topics related to coloniality and racism in Australia. Have a listen

    Love the content but I felt that Dr Bargallie had so much more to share, this felt more of a lecture by Dr Lentin rather than an interview to one of our great Aboriginal scholars. Maybe 20 out of 56 minutes were taken up by Dr Bergallie’s words and she was interrupted a number of times.

    The format is more a conversation than an interview. But thanks for the feedback. I think the major drawback was the fact that we were on Zoom instead of face to face so it was a lot less natural than it would have been if Debbie and I were together in the same room. Next time…
