Mother-daughter to discuss life in Aussie outback

Aspen Real Life resumes its speaker series on Thursday with a mother-daughter conversation about Janie-Joseland Bennett’s childhood on a cattle station in the Australian outback.

Bennett and her daughter Eleanor will be sharing stories from their monthlong journey traveling back in time to record Eleanor’s upcoming podcast, “The Questions I Never Asked” — a biography on her mother’s childhood on a cattle station situated alongside the Pitjantjatjara Aboriginal community in the remote Australian outback.

Eleanor is a freelance podcast producer and broadcast journalist covering issues of climate justice and women’s empowerment.

The event starts at 4 p.m. at the Caribou Club. For more information, go to
