    Childers - Paul Cochrane

    Childers - Paul Cochrane

    Today we’re talking to Paul Cochrane about his moving and important podcast, Childers
    So many of the people we speak to talk about the importance of finding a subject that’s close to you and this story was very close to Paul. 20 years ago he had his first assignment as a journalist covering the arson attack of the Childers Hostel in Queensland which claimed the lives of 15 backpackers.
    It is an incredible achievement for a first time podcast, including being a finalist in the Australian Podcast Awards

    In My Country - Pia Perversi-Burchall and Adam Wood

    In My Country - Pia Perversi-Burchall and Adam Wood

    When we started behind the podcast part of our excitement was getting the story behind some of the biggest podcasts around, but what really piqued our interest was talking to the smaller, independent podcast creators. 
    There are none better than the team behind - In My Country - Adam Wood and Pia Perversi-Burchall.
    We hear a lot about refugees & asylum seekers, but not often do we hear from the people themselves. In My Country tells these stories so effectively that they won Best Interview at the 2020 Australian Podcast Awards for their episode Alyas which we recommend as a great place to jump into the series.
