Podcast: Stan Grant: The Queen is Dead

Queen Elizabeth came to the throne at the height of the British Empire and died with the world at a tipping point. Stan Grant’s timely new book, The Queen is Dead, considers how, in the wake of her passing, we might more fully reckon with our colonial past and redefine our future.

Listen to Grant in conversation with Anne Pattel-Gray about our place in the monarchy, the Voice, and the necessity of a just settlement with First Nations people.
