Disconnect is a podcast series produced by Ellie Rennie, Tyson Yunkaporta, and Indigo Holcombe-James at RMIT University. Each podcast tells a story related to a unique aspect of internet use in Aboriginal communities and towns. The pilot episode was designed to create impact and community engagement around a multi-year program of research – the Telstra-funded Cyber Safety in Remote Aboriginal Communities project, 2015-2018. Future episodes of Disconnect are currently being produced in collaboration with Aboriginal language and media organisations, with support from Telstra, and will be made available for distribution on Indigenous radio stations and to the wider public via podcasting platforms.

    Been listening to the podcast and was really interested to hear the effect of the internet and in particular social media on Aboriginal communities. Excellent series where I’ve learnt a heap. Great job.
