#1841 Coming and Going

It’s Spring and some of us find a certain wanderlust in the air. We explore our comings and goings from the places we love. We’ll also be asking ourselves why we come and go in the first place.

#1838 Getting Culture

We’re on a search for culture. We’ll be taking epic voyages on ferries, leaving theatres with a new appreciation for musicals, and finding our tribe on the internet.

Secret Theatre Secret by Sapphire Sheedy

There’s nothing like seeing musical theatre live, right before your eyes. There’s also nothing like seeing musical theatre for the very first time, especially if you’ve grown up avoiding cow patties.

This story was recorded at a live visual storytelling night in Sydney, Read To Me. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for upcoming events.

#1835 Where Are You From

Asking ‘where are you from?’ can be loaded. It can cast doubt on whether or not someone belongs to where they are now. But so many Australians were born in another country. And their journey to becoming Australian has had both highs and lows.

‘Pedal To The Metal’ by Allison Chan

Dean grew up in Croatia, when it was part of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It’s an area that witnessed war and ethnic tensions. It was also home to a small band of metal lovers, which wrote a letter to the Motorhead fan club in the mid-1980s.

Thanks to Gregory J Thorsby, EJ Janse van Rensburg and Millie Lee for production assistance.

Music: ‘Hells Bells’ by AC/DC, ‘War Pigs’ by Black Sabbath, ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’ by Bon Jovi, ‘Can’t You Hear Me Knocking’ by The Rolling Stones, ‘Paradise City’ by Guns And Roses 

‘Journeys’ by Devana Senanayake
