About This List

How this list was made: If an Australian podcast made me feel something significant (joy! hope! sadness! satisfaction! fear! anger! comfort!) I added it to my Trello, and at the end of the year I picked the episodes I still felt most strongly about. How to listen: While I've selected the stand-out eps that made me feel things, in the case of narrative series (Brain on Nature, Backflip, NB, Deadliest Day) and fiction (a third of this highly-biased list) please do go back to the beginning. Who was included: Australians made or had a large role in producing the podcast episode featured. The exception is Charu, Satellite. This is included because the part that made me feel things was the Australian cameo in the middle. As I listened in sequence with Jennifer, Newspaper, Everything is Alive's Ian Chillag is an honorary Australian for the purpose of this list. I hope this list introduces you to some new shows or gets you back into one you haven't tried in a while.
