    The 78'ers On The Night Sydney Mardi Gras Was Violently Born

    The 78'ers On The Night Sydney Mardi Gras Was Violently Born

    Have you heard of the 78’ers? They’re the group people who first marched through the streets of Sydney in celebration of the queer community.

    Unfortunately, not everyone was keen to partake in the partying, resulting in arrests, protests and violence.

    Almost 50 years on from the very first Sydney Gay & Lesbian Made Gras and where are we at? We ask some of those original 78’ers their thoughts on just how far we’ve come.

    The Paris Games Are 31 Days Away, Why Are Parisians Pooping In The River?

    With just over a month ’til the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, we’re been wondering… how do you even pull an event of that scale off?

    We asked the President of the 2032 Brisbane Games Organising Committee how he’s preparing for the world to head down under.

    Plus what happens when residents from a host nation aren’t happy with the games rollout? You might want to stick with bottled water during this episode.

I love the Quicky!

I’m an Aussie living in the U.K. and this (along with MMOL) helps keep me up to date on key issues in Oz when I chat to my family and friends! I’ve learned so much and love your voice every morning Claire Murphy!

Great bite sized podcast

I started listening to this podcast (from the UK) a few months ago and find it casts a different slant on the news to that in the UK. Quality reporting without waffle. And a great accent!

podcast alison ,
