This week on No Filter, we’re proud to introduce Narelda Jacobs as our guest host. 

Narelda is a proud Whadjuk Noongar woman. She’s also the host of Ten News First and co-host of Studio 10, and last year she joined Mia for her very own No Filter chat.

And on this episode of No Filter, she speaks to three incredible first nations women, Robyn Smith Walley, Kezia Jacobs Smith and Teela Reid about what changing the date means to them...
