This week, we welcome to the show the author of Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save The World -genuinely one of my favourite books ever- Tyson Yunkaporta. In addition to being an author, Tyson is a poet, an artist, a wood carver, a linguist and and is senior lecturer in Indigenous Knowledges at Deakin University.
I had a fantastic time with this chat. We talk about ceremony, metaphor, the pitfalls of the new age, right relation and all that good stuff. We also talk about communicating via body odour, getting fat and 80s movies.
