Adam reconnects with Alyas Taqawi, our very first guest of the season. Alyas reflects on In My Country’s win at the 2020 Australian Podcast Awards (we’re still in shock) and how storytelling is in his blood. He also discusses his role on the board of the new organisation Refugee Voices and how they are working to ensure that people from refugee backgrounds have a seat at the table on all decisions that effect them.
