Blacademia is a celebration of First Nations excellence in academia.
Each episode, hosted by Gamilaroi woman and Macquarie University PhD candidate Amy Thunig, is a conversation with a featured First Nations academic. Thunig creates a warm, conversational space in these episodes, with guests diving deep into their family lives and their work. Thunig has attracted some big names to the show, including Professor Anita Heiss, Professor Marcia Langton and emerging astrophysicist Karlie Noon
Each episode runs for about an hour and explores the barriers, successes and stories of what it is like to be Black in the academy.
