Carrie McI ,

Thanks Sal C

Love the show! I so appreciate such thoughtful & balanced commentary - that I can trust! It’s helping me to acclimate back to Australia after 10 yrs away in the US. Thanks for the recommendation from Singapore Sal C!

My daily slice of news from home

Part of my daily routine! Living away from Australia makes it hard to keep up with news from home. The Quicky makes doing that just so simple and enjoyable. It’s my little slice of Straya everyday. Keep them coming!

LynnieGee ,

The perfect morning quicky

I LOVE this podcast! It’s a great way to get a snapshot of the daily headlines and then a really interesting “deep dive” into one current topic of interest. I learn something new every time I listen. Thank you so much!
