This week on Let’s Talks Boe and Karina have been yarning with First Nations Business owners from around the country to talk about how they have been impacted by COVID-19, we are also getting much-needed updates from First Nations reporters.
This morning we kicked off the program by speaking to Europe correspondent for ABC Bridget Brennan who is a first nations woman from Victoria. Bridget gave us an update on what’s going on in Britain and across Europe just after the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared national lockdowns across the UK, effective immediately.
