This week we’re bringing you a story from the podcast ‘177 Nations of Tasmania’. 177 Nations is the creation of Mark Thompson, who started the project during Covid-19 lockdown in 2020 after reading the Australian Census and discovering that there are 177 different nationalities represented in Tasmania.
We’d like to note that the interview we are featuring was recorded in early 2021.
Melika From Iran
Melika shares the story of her and her husband’s decision to emigrate to Australia and the different ways she has fallen in love with Tasmania.
In this episode of the podcast Mark hopes to challenge people’s preconceived notions about Iran and its people.
