We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land where we will hold the Melbourne Podcast Festival.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within the Kulin Nation.

We wish to celebrate the rich history of indigenous storytelling and hope to uphold this as testament to their eternal influence.
