Episode 976: Proud Pierce Brosnan, Heritier Lumumba, Pique Speaks, Ken’s Tiger Apology
Heritier Lumumba played for 12 seasons for Collingwood, the most storied club in Australian Rules football. At the end of that career, he made a documentary which aired in recent weeks about the systemic racist abuse he suffered in the AFL.
He joins us on the show today to talk about the history of racism in Australia, athletes speaking out, and the dominant Euro-centric world view.
