#1816 Postcard From A City

We share our memories and impressions of growing up and living in Sydney.

Tourist In Your Own City by Martyn Reyes

If you had family or friends visiting your home city from overseas, which places would you show off to ultimately impress them? Martyn Reyes didn’t know either, which is why he embarked on a 3 hour walking tour around Sydney to remind himself what makes his city special.

Staying in Sydney by Allison Chan

#1810 The Long Weekend

What does Australia do over a four day weekend?

We’ll be sharing in a birthday celebration, Easter egg hunts, a belated Lunar New Year dinner and creative backseat antics on family road trips.

‘Are we there yet?’ by Jordan Fennell

We discover how Jordan and her family make it through a six-hour road trip.

‘We’re going on an Easter egg hunt’ by Britta Jorgensen

The Easter long weekend wouldn’t have been complete without an Easter egg hunt.

‘Made in a hurry’ by Zacha Rosen

We celebrate Passover and endure a character building exercise in the pursuit of a story.

Music: Ave Roma Sonatori Te Salutant by Armando Trovaioli, The Lutz Police Militia by Alexandre Desplat, Jálale [Instrumental]‎ by Mexican Institute of Sound

Thanks to Newtown Erskineville Anglican Church for letting Zacha cover their graveyard tour. Even though he lost all the tape.

A heartfelt thanks to Joseph Ware, Samantha Groth, Karishma Tanvi, Angela Moran, Martyn Reyes and Yvonne Lam for their recordings of their long weekend.
