What did you love best about Taim Bilong Masta?
Wonderful first-person recollections from Papuan and Australian men and women who participated in Australia's settlement of PNG from before WWI to WWII. Amazing "Indiana Jones" types who grappled with the tropical jungle, isolated tribes, Germans, British bureaucrats....etc.

The mix of oral history, journalism, and the historian Henry Nelson make this addictive listening. It is part of Australian history, as a Coloniser and differs somewhat from our disgraceful history in regards to Indigenous Australians. But be warned the oral history is framed in the colloquial language of the time- "boy" and so on which is unsettling. A highly recommended listen or read.
