• Munk, A.K.A. Munkimuk, is a Jardwadjali Koori hip hop artist, rapper, producer, breakdancer, visual artist and composer (what hasn’t he done?!) from Sydney. He co-founded the hip hop group (although he calls it “just his group of mates”) South West Syndicate and has his own program “Making Tracks” on Koori Radio, a First Nations radio station based in Sydney. During our talk, I found out Munk is a well of wisdom when it comes to Indigenous talent who have travelled the word as world class performers. Inspiring others is his biggest passion, and if you’ll stick to the end, you’ll be treated with the South West Syndicate track “Paradise,” featuring Uncle Wes Marne!

  • Gamilaroi poet and musician Luke Patterson takes us on a walk through Sydney’s inner-western suburb Redfern, built on Gadigal land. Redfern, seen as the heart of Indigenous activism in Sydney, is Luke’s homebase. After we grabbed a quick coffee, Luke told me all about his experiences of living here – as well as in Kurnell, about his idea of Country, about the blending of city -and urban sounds in his creative work, and last but not least, about his engagement in community projects, such as Ngana Barangarai, publishing poetry by inmates in Junee Correctional Centre.

    You will hear our conversation, as well as the sounds of the city. At times, the city sounds take over – if you find this unpleasant to listen to, I invite you to either let it wash over you, or skip ahead a few seconds while we turn a corner. Thanks for listening to our experiment of a conversation between humans, city, and Country.

    Gamilaroi and Wakka Wakka song man and didgeridoo player Gumaroy Newman and British-Australian flutist, pianist, and composer Keyna Wilkins talk about all things Yulugi; an ensemble they have set up about 3 years ago. From fuzzy Capricorn behaviour to the Scottish origins of the word “digeridoo,” to the Australian national anthem, we have talked about it all. Most importantly, we talked about how music of the “here and now” can celebrate humans in all our commonalities as well as our differences. Because in the end, we are all (going?) grey. This episode includes one of their songs at the end of our talk as well, make sure to stay tuned!

    Little spoiler alert: Jalal Mahamede is now a free man! He was released only a couple of weeks after we recorded this episode.

  • A podcast series aiming to make sense of our complex world; in each episode, SOAS academics interpret global affairs through a multi-disciplinary approach.

    First Episode: This week's guest is Scott Newton, Head of the School of Law, Gender and Media at SOAS, University of London. Scott, a true polymath, explains legal systems and philosophy, the unfairness of justice systems, Critical Race Theory, and the coming age of Transhumanism.

  • This podcast is brought to you as part of the Understanding Yoga Studies project, an online content series designed specifically to support early career and independent scholars gain a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the academic field of Yoga Studies.As a recognised field of academic study Yoga Studies is relatively young. Historically the study of traditions of yoga lived within a number of other academic disciplines; for example philology, Indology, history, religion and anthropology. In a contemporary academic context, studies of yoga have branched into further disciplinary contexts; for example sociology, ethnography, economics, modern history. This makes the field highly varied, engaging and exciting but also potentially vast and overwhelming for scholars new to the landscape.Each month we share an introduction to a different discipline within the field of Yoga Studies including an interview with a current academic working within that discipline.
