Aamer, Santi and Alice : Seaweed Superchat!, Beverley Wang (interviewer), podcast interview

'When you're part of a diaspora group, how do you break into the professional world that your parents want for you?

How do you "make it" when your roots and network may not be deep, but expectations are high?

It's Not A Race host Beverley Wang gathered Aamer Rahman, Santilla Chingaipe and Alice Pung together (gave them some seaweed snacks), and asked for their advice.'

'The Perfect Package for Outrage' : Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Beverley Wang (interviewer), podcast interview

'What's it like to go from model minority to public enemy in the span of a year?

People have strong views about Yassmin Abdel-Magied.

But what does Yassmin think of it all?

She talks to It's Not A Race about life inside the media storm and why she's decided to step back onto the public stage.'

State of Denial : Is Australia Racist?, Beverley Wang (interviewer), podcast interview

'It's the question that doesn't go away, or lead us anywhere: Is Australia racist?

So why does this question persist?

Maybe it's history, geography, politics, or all of the above.

Perhaps there are better questions to be asking about race.

It's Not A Race puts Australia on the psychologist's couch to try and understand why we're so obsessed with the question, and whether it leads to any meaningful answers.'

Rosalie, Marcia and Jedda, Beverley Wang (interviewer), single work interview podcast

'Back in 1955 Rosalie Kunoth-Monks and Robert Tudawali starred in Jedda.

'It was the first film in Australian history to feature actual Indigenous actors in the leading roles.

'Kunoth-Monks played the central character of Jedda, and the film broke new ground in terms of representation.

'But the film's depiction of Indigenous Australians — drawing on romanticised stereotypes — is also problematic.

'Professor Marcia Langton played the character of Jedda in Night Cries, a 1989 response to the original film.

'Langton and Kunoth-Monks talk to It's Not A Race to discuss the legacy of the film, and their experiences playing the iconic character of Jedda.'
