Frontier War Stories

Boe Spearim is a Gamilaraay & Kooma radio host and podcaster who lives in Brisbane.

Frontier War Stories - a podcast dedicated to truth-telling about a side of Australian that has been left out of the history books.

Each episode Boe will speak with different Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people about research, books and oral histories which document the first 140 years of conflict and resistance. These times are the Frontier Wars and these are our War Stories.
