Oliver Twist is a very funny and intelligent up-and-coming Australian comedian. He was born in Rwanda, grew up in a refugee camp in Malawi and has lived in Australia since 2014.

I was planning on taking a week off the podcast this week, but in the midst of everything that's happening right now, Oliver reached out and we decided to record this honest conversation about his relationship to the police, race, class, Black Lives Matter and what meaningful action looks like.

There are even a few laffs in there too. 

CAUSE OF THE WEEK: blacklivesmatter.caard.co

Here are practical ways you can support Aboriginal Lives Matter
