ABC Bundaberg Interview with Me on New York Festivals Awards

ABC Bundaberg presenter Scott Lamond interviews me about the silver and bronze trophy I won at the New York Festivals Radio Awards for my radio documentary on Blackbirding. My radio documentary reported on the calls for better recognition of what more than 60,000 Pacific Islanders went through when they were brought from their island homes to Australia to work in horrendous conditions on sugar farms.

Sisterhood Gone Wrong Chat

What happens when the sisterhood turns on it’s own tribe? Time to crack out the bikinis and go down to the beach in protest I say! I loved being part of this panel on the amazing Kelly Higgins-Devine’s ABC Brisbane evening show, in this segment of “What Do you Reckon?”, joined by the wonderful Akua Afriyie Ahenkorah.

Remarkable Tales

Remarkable Tales: Cape York Solar Innovation

An Aboriginal community in far north Queensland could hold the key to cleaner and more reliable power supply for isolated indigenous communities throughout Australia and the Pacific.The small township of Lockhart River on Cape York Peninsula is nestled in bushland, 800 kilometres north of Cairns, surrounded by pristine beaches and rainforest.

It’s idyllic, but incredibly remote. So much so it’s not even on the national power grid. Lockhart River relies on expensive and dirty diesel fuel to keep the lights on, and power the town’s businesses and homes. Until now. And it all comes down to solar power.
