Meet the true warriors of the bush. The men, women, boys and girls of the land who overcome challenges with a spirit you have to hear to believe. Their stories are heartbreaking, but their courage is truly inspiring.

In 2018 agriculture was catapulted into the mainstream media following the prolonged drought in NSW. Pictures of sobbing farmers and sad and skinny livestock were plastered on newspapers and tv screens across the country. It portrayed a 'poor me' stereotype when really our landholders overcome battles every single day with will and determination.

This podcast isn't about sharing sob stories. The Land was invited inside the homes of teenage paraplegics, widowed farmers, bush fire victims and those struck with rare illnesses. The battles and challenges you will hear about aren't anything new. It's the way in which these people tackle them that will make it hard to stop listening.

Hear Them Raw is presented and produced by Lucy Kinbacher.
