Let's Yarn: Allyship and the Voice to Parliament with Kerry O’Brien
Ashurst First Nations Lead, Trent Wallace, turns the tables and interviews one of Australia's most distinguished and respected journalists, Kerry O'Brien, to discuss Kerry's allyship origins, his new book co-authored with Thomas Mayo, "The Voice to Parliament Handbook: All the Detail You Need", and the media's role in mitigating risk to First Nations societies.
In this special Let's Yarn episode, Trent talks with Kerry O'Brien about his allyship origins, his new handbook with Thomas Mayo about The Voice, and the media's role in mitigating risk to First Nations societies.
The conversation also includes Kerry's personal experience in witnessing key moments of Australian history up close, from how the governments of the past have tried to provide an Indigenous Voice to Government, being in the room when Hawke announced the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, thoughts about past referendums, his reporting of land rights, Mabo, the ATSIC establishment and abolishment, to witnessing the Whitlam Dismissal. All of which have shaped and influenced Kerry's interest in Indigenous issues in Australia.
