    Karajarri calling [RE-ISSUE]

    Over the course of the week, three pairs of shoes bite the dust, soles detached from uppers in the 45 degree heat, one microphone's glue melts and there are about a billion bush flies drinking from sweaty backs.

    But despite the heat, Karajarri country has a draw towards it stronger than the pull of the sun.

A favourite podcast

I discovered Off Track on CBC Overnight programming 2 years ago, and it has became one of my top 3 favourite podcasts. Being Canadian does not detract at all from the content, it being Australian. On the contrary, it has enhanced my interest and knowledge in nature, period. The infectious enthusiasm that Ann brings to the interviews and her presentation skills make the program/podcast the pleasure that it is. I always look forward to the next episode and miss it when the natural breaks in programming occur. Keep up the excellent work!

Great sound editing and production

One of the key features of this show is the care they take creating a sound track. The attention to detail, imtimate and expansive, make this show worth listening to over and over, even here in Canada.

Thank you for your good work and bringing these important stories to the fore.
