    Youth in the Australian Music Scene
    Produced by Rebecca Maakasa and Bridget Bourke

    In this episode, we break down barriers preventing young people from participating in the live music scene. Kate Duncan from The Push gives insight into how underage gigs might be revived, and the passionate group of teenagers from New Slang talk about putting on successful music events in Melbourne. We also hear from media producer Josh Martin who grew up in regional Western Australia and compares his experiences of going to gigs in WA to the Melbourne music scene. Joe Toohey, the CEO of Creative Arts Victoria, describes how his lifelong love of the arts was stirred by going to an all-ages concert as a teenager. It is our hope that this episode prompts the music industry to continue to work towards being inclusive of young people so they can enjoy the live music experience.

    Hear Me Roar

Performers Miss Blanks and Lindy Morrison discuss what has changed and what has remained stagnant over the years, describing both the power and difficulties that come from their voices as females. Talking to Elspeth Scrine from the Listen collective, and Broadcaster Tracee Hutchison, the episode not only looks at where this empowerment movement has come from but what future it is fighting for.

    Genre and Language Blending in Music
    Produced by Elsie Bath and Shejuti Hossain

    This episode will look at how genre and language blending in music is creating a new wave of music exploration and creative freedom whilst growing and strengthening community bonds and cultural ties. Artists like Baker Boy and The Fifths are mixing the use of language and genre in their music in a fresh new way that seeks to link their personal histories with their current influence and audience. Talking to Broadcaster Namila Benson and Hosts of PBS's All Our Stories, this episode looks at how music in this field is not only influencing the Australian music landscape in terms of creativity, but is having a positive influence over social and political issues.

    Accessibility in the Music Industry
    Produced by Rebecca Maakasa and Bridget Bourke

    In this episode we explore the barriers that may prevent some music fans from enjoying live music and investigate how these situations will be overcome in the future. The main focus is accessibility as we chat to differently abled music lovers, also featuring The Hackkets, a local band comprised of members with varying access needs. Hopefully by listening to this episode a more acute sense of consciousness about these issues will be brought to the centre of attention.

    Punk Music in Australia
    Produced by Erin Dick and Paul Waxman

    Beyond the mohawks, piercings and raucous guitars, punk, in Australia, is an attitude. It’s a feeling, present in the disruption and discontent of political discourse. We want to challenge definitions, biases and preconceived ideas about what ‘punk’ was, is and will look like in the near future. Our audience will leave with a new impression of what ‘punk’ can sound like and represent, and how this ethos exists in Australia’s contemporary music scene.
