    Episode 34 - Nirvana Funeral Services

    Mic Cavazzini’s last story for this season of Human/Ordinary shares a lot of similarities with his first. It’s about the big things: life, death, and the Himalayas. It’s a story about journeys - how you end up doing what you do in life, and how you end up leaving it.


    Produced by Mic Cavazzini

    Episode 33 - Why Can't Hairdressers Be Like Plumbers?

    Episode 33 - Why Can't Hairdressers Be Like Plumbers?

    Her whole life, May Jasper has felt nervous about going to the hairdresser. 
    She didn’t know anything about fashion, and she didn’t understand all the questions they would ask like “do you want more volume in your hair?” (Why, is that gonna make it louder?) 
    And so she fantasised about a world where hairdressers were like plumbers. Just getting the job done, no questions asked.
    In this episode, May finds out why that is actually a terrible idea. 


    Produced by May Jasper.


    Recording and sound design by Andrew Callaghan.


    Original music by Kent Sutherland.


    Thanks to Marisa Ganci from the Chisholm Institute and Lisa from Birdie Hair Salon.

    Episode 31 - Fake Art

    Episode 31 - Fake Art

    Even though many people think only of dot-style paintings when considering “Aboriginal art”, it is actually as diverse as the many Indigenous nations who live across the country we now call Australia. Each group has its own unique culture with different languages, different stories and songs, different tools and different art styles.


    But increasingly, this art is being exploited in the souvenir market where ‘Aboriginal-style’ designs are manufactured in places like Indonesia and China.


    This story explores the relationship between Aboriginal art, culture and identity, and what can be done about the fake art market. 


    Produced by Cinnamon Nippard.


    Big thanks to Kellyann Drill, Abe Muriata, Joann Russo, Stephanie Parkin, Lee Elsdon, Gabrielle Sullivan and the Human/Ordinary team.
