Boe Spearim

A Kooma, Murawarii and Gamilaraay community organiser, born in western Sydney and raised on the Southside of Brisbane.

He has been involved in community radio since 2012 volunteering at 4zzz on the Indigi Briz program then later studying and completing a Cert 3 in media broadcasting at 98.9fm where Boe found employment after leaving the station and then coming back in 2017. Boe began hosting Let’s Talk a talkback program that discusses issues that affect First Nations people. This year Boe created a podcast called Frontier War Stories. In each episode, Boe speaks 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.

Before finding his passion in radio, Boe got involved in activism at the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy which was established in March 2012 in Musgrave Park.
