I began listening before moving to TAS from Melb. This podcast has been great in helping me to get my head around what is happening in the state. It gives a diverse and interesting perspective on all manner of issues and personalities. Well produced, reported, presented and a pleasure to listen to. Now I'm down south for good and can listen daily, though I do catch a podcast of missed episodes.
