Love, Canberra - Episode 30 - In sickness and in health
Chery and Glen were in their 20s and in love. They thought they had their whole life ahead of them and that it would take the trajectory of any other ordinary life. But then illness struck, and it changed all their plans.
Chery reflects on the hell of a ride they’ve been on. It’s been a bumpy road, but at least they’ve had each other.
Love, Canberra - Episode 29 - No place like home
Simon has been in three serious relationships. In all three, he suffered domestic abuse. Here, Simon reflects on what he went through, and talks about the book he wrote inspired by his experiences - for which he interviewed over 200 abusers.

Love, Canberra - Episode 28 - Father's Daughter
Matthew had been dating Sammy for about a year when she abruptly moved back to China. After some months, she admitted she was pregnant - with his child. Matthew has since been going through the visa process to have them live together in Australia as a family.
Love, Canberra - Episode 27 - Little
UnrulyNerdGirl is 44, Canadian, and a little boy bear. She’s also a domestic service submissive. These identities have, understandably, made dating and relationships rather difficult.
Here, UNG helps to demystify age play, and she gives us a peek into her play closet.
Love, Canberra - Episode 26 - Same same but different
It would not be an overstatement to call the story of Gaby and Kon’s relationship an epic. Theirs is a tale of young love, family conflict, a separation and reunion - and more besides. Cultural difference and similarity are the constants in their story, which they tell here.

Superb production and storytelling
The production is elegant, and the storytelling superb. It's a podcast but it sounds as good as anything from major radio like NPR and BBC.
What a gem!
So glad I stumbled across this one. Interesting stories told with a deft touch and great production values.
Interesting slice of life for the greatest city in Aus!
