    The idea of a community has changed a lot over our the past 50 years. Some argue the traditional connection with neighbours and local businesses are a thing of the past, as we become more reliant on technology.But that digital connection is also bringing together people who might not have had the chance to connect otherwise. So what makes a 'community' today?

Interesting

Always interesting to hear about the local achievers ,anything that empowers our local community is a step in the right direction.

craigdurkee ,

A bit mush mashed.

The first episode is a bit of a intro into what it’s all about. Whilst I get that it’s a bit of a insight into future episodes I found the format particularly annoying.

The host does tend to lack experience in interviewing, often cutting the guest off or asking another question before the previous one has been answered.

Thus far I don’t find the guests that interesting either, a lady who has lived in Perth then off to America and Africa doesn’t really hold much Perth connection. There was more time spent on her travels than actually on her time in Perth.

Good intentions just badly implemented, production quality is ok so hopefully the content will improve as time goes on.

If the content improves it would be worth a listen. In its current format I’d leave it alone.
