Ellie Scott, Kangaroo Ground, Part One

“I remember hospitality being a big thing in our family and it wasn’t until probably university when I realised that wasn’t normal for a lot of people.”

“I wish I was better at picking up sarcasm. You’d think I’d be better at it by now.”

In this episode, part one of a two-part conversation, Sharon Southwell speaks to Ellie Scott. The conversation moves from Ellie’s father’s experience of migration from Argentina to the USA, to her observations about second culture kids and hospitality, before exploring her own experience of migration from the USA to Australia.
