All Ears is podcast about the ways music challenges, comforts and connects us.

Music marks our rituals, motivation, relaxation and distraction. It charts the passage of time and taste, or lack thereof. It simultaneously fills arenas, and soundtracks our solitude. All Ears looks beyond genres, styles and stars to see what our use of music says about us — our connections, rituals and sense of belonging.

Exploring topics as varied as music and mourning, AFL anthems and the relationship between pub rock and microsurgery, All Ears is a podcast for people who are curious about the unique power music brings to all aspects of our lives.

All Ears is produced and presented by Annaliese Redlich, with editorial support from Broadwave.

    Dropping Pebbles

    Dropping Pebbles

    Songs serve many purposes and have an extraordinary power to unite us. But what about the way songs can divide us? How do we use music to document history and either conceal or tell the truth about our experiences? Songs are vital tools to refresh our collective memory and can tell us about how things were long after that time has passed.

    In this episode we take a deeper look at the utility of song and focus on its importance in First Nations cultures in Australia.

    #4: That Picó Sound!

    #4: That Picó Sound!

    A unique tradition exists in towns along the Caribbean coast of Colombia. With their gigantic, technicolour speakers, the music and culture of Picós are distinctly Afro-Colombian and exist only in specific towns and neighbourhoods in the region. Now for the first time, a Picó Soundsystem is being built outside of Colombia —in Melbourne. In this episode we look at the distinct music and cultural diaspora that created Picos, the power of music to connect people and bridge class divides, and Colombia’s increasing connection to Australia.
