Listen: Stan Grant's Australia Day

Since publishing his Walkley Award–winning, bestselling memoir Talking to My Country, Stan Grant has been travelling across Australia, talking to huge crowds about how racism is at the heart of our history and the Australian dream. But he knows this is not where the story ends. In this podcast, Stan returns to the Festival to discuss his much-anticipated follow-up, Australia Day, in conversation with George Megalogenis. This is an extraordinarily powerful and personal book about reconciliation, the Indigenous struggle for belonging, and what it means to be Australian.
