The Last Outlaws

A Trilogy Podcast from Impact Studios

In a History Lab season like no other, we’re pulling on the threads of one of Australia’s great misunderstood histories, moving beyond the myths to learn what the Aboriginal brothers Jimmy and Joe Governor faced in both life and death.

Australia’s budding Federation is the background setting to this remarkable story, that sees the Governor brothers tied to the inauguration of a ‘new’ nation and Australia’s dark history of frontier violence, racial injustice and the global trade and defilement of Aboriginal ancestral remains.

This Impact Studios production is a collaboration with the Governor family, UTS Faculty of Law and Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research.
