The Bachar Houli Foundation (BHF) has launched its first official podcast, BHF Talks.
BHF Talks is an interview series that will spotlight an array of interesting guests from the community sphere, including footballers, humanitarians, media personalities and many more.
Each week, host Bilal Ali will be joined by a new guest to talk about their life, career and work in the community.
The first two episodes of the podcast feature former Socceroo and active humanitarian Craig Foster and AFL footballer Adam Saad.
Foster represented Australia 29 times at senior level and played in England for Portsmouth and Crystal Palace.
Nowadays, Foster is an ambassador for Amnesty International and focuses on assisting refugees and asylum seekers.
My pleasure to join you and the @BHFoundationAU to talk about the great work that Bachar does in connecting communities and about sport and social justice. Best wishes with your new podcast and great work all round, Bachar ?? https://t.co/RjrmZ928vq— Craig Foster (@Craig_Foster) October 5, 2021
