Today we celebrate the 6th anniversary of Apology Day to the Aboriginal people.  Adrian chats with Brian Butler, a respected Aboriginal elder about the apology, stolen generation and the disintegration of the family across Australia as well as other important issues including the appropriate governance for Aboriginal people.  It’s also International Radio Day today and Nat shares with us some interesting facts about how radio is an important medium which can help those who are disadvantaged.
