Welcome to Episode 50 of Good Will Hunters! I cannot believe we made it this far – I’m so proud of this show and so proud of us as a community. I had wondered who would be our guest on this momentous episode, and I’m incredible humbled to say it is the Former Prime Minister of Tuvalu, the Right Honourable Enele Sopoaga.

I heard Enele speak at the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) conference earlier this week. If you don’t already know ACFID – you should! Enele gave the keynote address in the morning, and there was a reverence in the audience as he spoke. There were laughs, tears and a sense of both urgency and optimism. Later that afternoon, I had the opportunity to interview Enele and his wife Silalo. It was a moment I will treasure forever.
This episode is BIG – it is a chance for us to truly listen and understand the situation of Tuvalu. I encourage you to listen to the episode in full, and support all platforms which amplify the voices of our Pacific brothers and sisters.
