SameSame Different Episode One – Meet Uncle Malcolm

Share This Post

Everyone Should Get A Fair Go

About Our Podcast – SameSame Different – This Is Western Sydney

This podcast series leverages the beauty, richness and uniqueness of cultural diversity, and highlight the triumph and strength of participants who represent cultural diversity. We seek to highlight the triumphs and shared humanity across cultural groups through our podcast series, to break the stereotype of the quintessential Australian, and strengthen and improve attitudes towards cultural diversity.

Welcome to SameSame Different Podcast. Meet Uncle Malcolm. Uncle Malcolm’s mob is from the Hunter Valley. His mother is a Kamilaroi woman, and his father was Scottish. He came to Sydney in 1945, when he was 4 years old and he’s been on this land for 78 years. His ancestors are the oldest living culture on earth and have not been offered a treaty.

Uncle Malcolm would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land, the Cabrogal people of the Darug Nation, and pays his respects to elders past and present and those emerging. To any Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in the audience tonight – Yama Yama Yama – welcome welcome welcome.

He believes that everyone should get a fair go… and that learning about your roots, culture and heritage – giving you a sense of permanence and is an important part of knowing who you are and where you are going.

Uncle Malcolm takes us on an adventure of his life, his time growing up in Condell Park, his views on climate change and a multitude of experiences working and supporting family and community.
