Ask the Specialist | A cultural education podcast
‘Ask the Specialist’ is a cultural education podcast which answers doctors’ questions about working with Aboriginal patients at Top End hospitals. “The Specialists” are Larrakia Elder Bilawara Lee, Tiwi Elder Pirrawayingi Puruntatameri and Yolŋu leader Rarrtjiwuy Melanie Herdman. Kriol and Burrara interpreter Bernadette Nethercott from the NT Aboriginal Interpreter Service also shares expertise. Across seven episodes, questions range from the practical, “Is it okay to make eye contact?” to cultural safety issues, “I want to know what Aboriginal people feel like when we talk to them, what makes them think that we're racist?”
