Race relations explored in new ABC podcast

A new barrier-breaking ABC podcast, It’s Not A Race asks Australia to talk about race.

Presented by executive producer of RN Drive, Beverley Wang, It’s Not A Race takes a fearless look at the deeply ingrained issues of race and identity that define and divide us across our multicultural nation.

“This is the podcast Australia needs right now,” says Wang. “Race, racism and difference are part of everyday life. We need the tools to acknowledge and talk about these subjects, especially if they’re out of our comfort zone. We also need spaces for people to share their stories and experiences on their own terms. It’s Not A Race aims to talk it all out with humour and frankness.”

Hear experiences, opinion and insights from commentators, culture makers and influencers who provide their takes on where race sits on our national radar, and how it can and does influence our daily lives.

Featured guests include Stan Grant, Professor Marcia Langton, Bjorn Stewart, Alice Pung, Santilla Chingaipe, Tim Soutphommasane, Aamer Rahman, Nkechi Anele, Lucie Cutting, Robin DiAngelo, Caz Tran, Michael Hing, Allan Clarke, Rosalie Kunoth-Monks and Faustina Agolley.

Throughout the course of the program, It’s Not A Race will be reaching out to listeners to share their own anecdotes and accounts of race and identity. Use the #notarace hashtag to join the conversation on social media.

Episodes 1 and 2 are now available on the ABC app and podcast platforms.
