#318 Loyalty


This week, stories about what it means to be loyal – to your job, to a partner or to yourself.

‘A chat with a garbo’ by Bridget Harilaou

Ian Hankinson has been committed to his job for the last 28 years. It’s a job people aren’t exactly queuing up to do, and yet our society often takes the service for granted. But Ian knows its worth.

Supervising producers: Selena Shannon, Beth Gibson

Music: ‘Kaleidoscope’ by Podington Bear, ‘So Far So Close’ by Jahzzar, ‘Ladybirds Theme’ by David Szesztay

‘A cheater’s guide to love’ by Nick Hose

This one is from our friends at SPUN, a live storytelling night in Darwin. Nick Hose shares what loyalty in love looks like when long work hours and an ocean get in the way.

Made with story producer Patrick Horton, you can check out more of SPUN’s stuff here.

‘Burlesque on the brain’ by Silvi Vann-Wall

Sometimes it feels like you can be your body’s own worst enemy. In this piece, an old art form reminds us to be loyal to ourselves and the vessels we live in, no matter how we look.

Come behind the curtain for a tale of glitz, glamour, and self-love in this story about Melbourne’s own burlesque scene.

Supervising Producer: Bec Fary
