The Standard launches its new podcast series 'Voices Worth Listening To'.
The series will delve into different stories from people living in or from the south-west.
In this first episode, we talk to Charmaine Clarke.
Ms Clarke is 52-year-old Gunditjmara woman who is Gunditjmara Aboriginal Cooperative's Indigenous Family Violence researcher for the south-west.
Throughout her 36-year working life, she's donned many hats in various aspects of Indigenous affairs.
But growing up was a very different story.
In this podcast, Ms Clarke talks about her childhood as part of the stolen generation and her roles across Australia in archaeology, health care and mental health, just to name a few.
Ms Clarke also delves into what she believes to be the key issues creating barriers for indigenous Australians.
