Visting Wandin Valley through A Country Podcast; And: A much-needed addition to local news - In Queensland.
Broadcaster and writer Melanie Tait has revisited the culture of her youth through A Country Podcast - a new podcast series exploring the Australian iconic series A Country Practice. She discovered that the show actually reflects modern values and the politics of our moment surprisingly well. Tait tells us about why she started the podcast, but also what she has discovered during that process.
The Aus Media Report also speaks with arts reporter Dan Johnson about In Queensland, a new daily news service that is servicing an under-served Queensland news market with politics, business, arts, and other topical stories. With a team of well-known QLD reporters on board, In Queensland is taking on the larger news organisations.
