Murder in the Land of Oz
4
Who said nothing ever happens in Brisbane? Join hosts Jessica Kate and Ellen Rose as they dig up the skeletons buried in our own back yard and take you on a macabre tour around Australia’s third largest city - home to the Stefan Needle, the Brown Snake, the crushing feeling that you’re trapped in a dead-end town that you can never leave, and some of the most brutal murders in Australian history.
Musicals Taught Me Everything I Know
A podcast by musical-lovers for musical-lovers. Together our hosts will mine their musical libraries in order to learn whatever it is that musicals have to teach!
Castology
PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how. Each episode our Castologists Liz, Patrick and Zane will review some of the best (and sometimes not-so-best) podcasts around. They’ll also do the hard work and trawl the RSS feeds to find the newest podcasts that should be on your radar. Will they always agree with each other’s picks? Probably not! But hey, you’re clever, you know that’s how reviews work.
One Third of Life
One Third of Life is the podcast to listen to when you cannot sleep; when you are so wrapped up in your own thoughts that you cannot unwind. This will be the companion to talk you to sleep.
Law & DISORDER
4
Law and Disorder follows a band of troubled Marshals as they try their best to clean up crime in the city of Untherlass with very limited legal powers and even less training.
One Mile
5
Friends. We all have them (probably) and we all love them. But we’ve all got that one mate who no matter how much we love, we can’t help but be appalled at their life, hobbies and habits. But have you ever wondered what would happen if you and that friend pulled a Freaky Friday and swapped lives? Well no need to give your self nightmares because that’s where we come in! Liz has her life together. Kurtis, by all rights, shouldn’t be alive. And every week they’re going to swap a different aspect of their vastly different existences for your podcasting pleasure. Diets, jobs, exercise routines and underwear. Nothing is off the table. Be sure to tune in every Friday to hear them suffer whilst walking One Mile in each other’s shoes.
Second Take Podcast
5
Join hosts Sebastian, Alex and Zane as they talk their way through films from past and present - all in a quest to see whether they are worth a Second Take.
And Then They F#*KED
2
This podcast is not for the faint of heart. If you are not looking for the filthiest, most fatuous, feverishly feculent & flippant fan-fabricated fiction, then go no further! Go back to your comfortable life, watch an old-school Disney movie and forget you were ever here. Seriously, we don't judge. But what we will do is find, read, and discuss some of the best(worst) fan fiction that has ever found its way out of the depraved collective-mind of the internet's many, many dark corners. We will wade through these depths of humanity's depravity to bring you the most amusing fan-fiction finds and present them in small, easy to digest portions. Wish us luck. And please, don't listen while eating.

And they are not shy about it.

WE ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT DOGS! Some dogs are doggos, some are puppers, and others may even be pupperinos. There are corgos and clouds, fluffers and floofs, woofers and boofers. The chunky ones are thicc, and the thin ones are long bois. When they stick out their tongues, they're doing a mlem, a blep, a blop. They bork. They boof. Once in a while they do each other a frighten. And whether they're 10/10 or 12/10, they're all h*ckin' good boys and girls. Check us out every Wednesday as we show those snooty cats exactly who is the goodest house-pet!

Making Musicals with Bradley McCaw
4
MUSICAL THEATRE HAS NEVER BEEN BIGGER. WITH BROADWAY'S 2017 BOX OFFICE SURPASSING $1.5 BILLION FOR THE FIRST TIME (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) AND AWARD-WINNING FILM PHENOMENA LIKE FROZEN, GREATEST SHOWMAN, AND LA LA LAND - THE WORLD IS RUSHING TO SEATS AROUND THE GLOBE TO RAISE IT'S JAZZ HANDS AND SING 'HOW DO WE SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA!?' Yet at a closer glance only 5% of the shows created are responsible for the high grossing revenue - the remainder close early, out of town or in the case for most original musicals in Australia, wander aimlessly through the Outback desert waiting to be discovered. The early composers almost single-handedly opened the door for tin pan alley and the evolution of popular music. It’s responsible for giving us household names like Bette. Audra. Patti. Mandy. Sondheim. Lloyd-Webber. What can composers do today to find similar success and how has the industry changed? Making a Musical will ask questions and try to understand why people love musicals; What is about them that has people travel all around the world to see them? In this exploration of The Great American Art Form, BRADLEY MCCAW (Award-winning writer/performer/ lecturer) travels to New York (USA), London (UK), TBC (Japan) and Melbourne (Australia) to ask Industry greats first hand - what does it actually take to make a great musical. He will sit with those who are at the forefront of making musicals, try to unpack how the industry works here in Australia and abroad and figure out why we can't make musicals like other places in the world. What don't we have - that they have in NYC, London, and Asia?

A New World Order
3
THE WORLD IS A MESS! BUT WHO CAN WE TURN TO TO FIX IT!? THE UNITED NATIONS? THE DALAI LAMA? THE LONG-LOST HEIR OF THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE!?

Made You Look
5
The TV shows we watch say a lot about us. A cynical person might prefer light-hearted comedies as an antidote to the crushing existential weight of their everyday life. A former youth-group leader might be obsessed with religious iconography and pop-culture depictions of the devil. People are weird, and it shows in their Netflix queues. Made You Look is a podcast that tries to work out why we love the things we love. And if Jane and Kurt have to watch each other's favourite TV shows to do it... They're willing to make that sacrifice.  One week Jane will select an episode of one of her favourite shows for Kurt to watch. He'll recap it, try to figure out the missing pieces, and then comes the criticism. Together they parse out the episode in detail, touching on world-building, story construction, theme, production context and personal connection. The following week it's Jane's turn...
