    Haunted Pubs

    Haunted Pubs

    It's said that, next to theatres,  pubs are home to the most wandering spirits. Perhaps because this is where you will generally find the biggest personalities? Come with us as we go through 2 lived experiences of departed folks who just weren't ready to leave their post. We enter the Jolly Collier Hotel in Dysart Qld, through the eyes of a former cleaning lady, and spend a night (almost) at the Cracow Pub Qld with a spooked traveller. Seems spirits of all kinds like to linger in alehouses.

    On the hunt for Tigers

    On the hunt for Tigers

    On 7 September 1936 the last known thylacine, 'Benjamin', died from exposure in a zoo in Hobart, Tasmania. The last of his kind in captivity, & likely one of the last of his kind full stop. But being officially declared in 1986 has not stopped reported sightings and encounters of Tasmanian Tigers both in Tasmania and on the Australian mainland, from suburban Victoria to Qld's remote Cape York. Come with us as we discuss the very real possibility of living Thylacines with expert Neil Waters from Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia (TAGOA). Could 2021 be the year proof is finally recovered?

Untold stories of the coalfields

I am loving the podcast! The laid back casual nature of the presenters makes it very appealing and easy to listen to. Interesting content, investigated and presented in a way that allows the listener to gain facts and form their own opinions. Refreshing to hear differing opinions delivered respectfully! Definitely not the coalfields stories one would expect to hear. Thank you, keep the stories coming!
