Let's Talk is a program worth listening to

Amy Leiper, 1st June 2022
With Reconciliation Week this week, we are pleased to announce a new program available on CRN on Monday nights called Let's Talk. As one of the longest running indigenous radio programs having run for nearly 20 years, Let's Talk showcases incredible content for our sector. The CRN version looks back on the best stories of the week from the daily versions of Let's Talk that play on Triple A Murri Country Monday - Friday. 

Founded and hosted by former Triple A CEO and trailblazer Tiga Bayles and with over 2,500 episodes, Let’s Talk has elevated the most prominent First Nations voices in the country. They include: Noel Pearson, Michael Mansell, Gary Foley, Jackie Huggins, Mary Graham, Lilla Watson and so many more. The program has been previously hosted by Indigenous journalist Amy McQuire and Indigenous activist Boe Spearim. It is currently hosted by Gomeroi Journalist Danny Teece-Johnson and broadcasted 5 days a week via a number of platforms including; 98.9FM, National Indigenous Radio Service, livestreamed via the website, and available on demand via podcast. It is considered by many as the leading National program on Indigenous issues and provided a voice for Indigenous people and addressing Indigenous issues across the country.

Let's Talk host, Danny Teece-Johnson, is a Gomeroi man from Moree NSW, Danny has been studying and working across multi-media for nearly 20 years. After releasing his award-winning short film “Mah” Danny moved into documentary filmmaking working alongside some of the country’s best filmmakers and production houses. Danny is an established media professional having worked with NITV in TV production and radio as well as Koori Mail as a print journalist.  In 2012 Danny worked with Indigenous youth in Kakadu to write and direct Song line to Happiness, receiving Best Short Documentary at the 2012 Imagine NATIVE Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. Danny studied Documentary at Metro.

Today, Let’s Talk is Triple A’s flagship program that continues to elevate the diverse voices of First Nations people across the country. It is centred around the unceded sovereignty of First Nations people in this country, honouring the history of this country with a solutions-based focus on the future. The program explores a range of key themes from a First Nations perspective including:

  • Social Justice
  • Political landscape
  • Economic environment
  • History
  • Future Agenda
  • Young people
  • Elders
  • The arts
