All The Best is for new Australian storytelling. Hear from a Melbourne-based cannibal, how the Australian Wallabies used theatre workshops to improve their game, anxiety attacks in a Tantric sex class, and what the shopping centre Santa Claus is really thinking, all on All The Best.

We're a weekly radio show and podcast produced at FBi Radio in Sydney in association with SYN and Triple R in Melbourne, and broadcast nationally via the Community Radio Network. We’ve been telling stories in a variety of forms since 2011, picking a theme each week and using short form documentary, personal narrative, interviews, and spoken word to bring you the best from across Australia.

These are our final words for 2018. But don’t go away. We have to first sit an English exam. We’ll also be testing you on the lyrics of your first album. To wrap up, we’ll find out how hearing, silence and sign language come together. — Language Test by Daniel Semo What happens when highly educated English speakers have to take an exam that they have every reason to think should be easy? Music: ‘El Rapido’’ by Daniel Semo, ‘High Wire’ by 126ers, ‘Lone Wolf’ by Dan Lebowitz Supervising Producer: Nina Enever with help from Allison Chan — Collecting Memories by Madi Chwasta A lot of us collect music. Some dear to our hearts, some from our earliest moments, and some would make anyone cringe. But even if we don’t listen to it at all, our first album is always a trip down memory lane. Music: ‘Windowlicker’ by Apex Twin, ‘Smells like teen spirit’ by Nirvana, ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Neil Diamond, ‘Traditional (arr. By Madi Chwasta)’ by D’ye Ken John Peel, ‘Ommadawn’ by Mike Oldfield, ‘Don’t Change’ by INXS, ‘Spoonman’ by Soundgarden, ‘A-punk’ by Vampire Weekend, ‘Exhale’ by Whitney Houston, ‘Here Comes Your Man’ by Pixies, ‘Everytime You Touch Me’ by Moby, ‘La Boheme, Muetta’s Waltz (Performed by Camarata and His Orchestra from the album Puccini Orchestral Arias)’ by Puccini, ‘Beautiful Day’ by U2, ‘Waiting Room’ by Fugazi, ‘Hope I don’t fall in love with you’ by Tom Waits, ‘This time’ by Waylon Jennings Supervising Producer: Jordan Fennell with help from Allison Chan and Bec Fary — Between Two Worlds by Rachel Kroes Rachel Kroes has existed between two worlds most of her life – a world with sound and a world without. Moving between the two has resulted in some privileged connections made through the shaping of hands and movement of lips. This story was told at a SPUN event in 2015 where the theme was ‘Connections’. SPUN is a live storytelling night, presented by StoryProjects, in Darwin. You can hear more live stories on their website.

#1843 Buried History
We’re digging for the deep cultural roots of magick, and burrowing through the rubbish history of a Sydney suburb. — Tempe Tip by Shelby Traynor A garbage tip once engulfed a Sydney suburb that is now transformed. But there are still remnants of the past — buried beneath walking tracks and ponds. Now an oasis close to the city, Tempe residents still remember their time at the tip.  Music: ‘Adventure Island (Theme)’, ‘Adventures of Superman (Theme)’ Supervising Producers: Evana Ho and Allison Chan — Magick is Everywhere by Matilda Fay Content warning: Mention of sexual assault You probably went through a teenage witch phase that was heavily influenced by ‘Buffy’. And you’ve probably seen ‘hex the patriarchy’ memes. From Salem to the Kimberley, we learn how witchcraft is intertwined with an ongoing tradition of anti-colonial, queer and feminist resistance. Music: ‘Brujas’ by Princess Nokia, ‘Leave the TV on’ by Blue Dot Sessions, ‘Bliste’ by Blue Dot Sessions, ‘Can I Get A Key’ by Sampa The Great Consulting Producer: Jayla Shae Davey (Memarloo) Supervising Producer: Allison Chan — All The Best credits: Executive Producer: Allison Chan Victorian State Coordinator: Jordan Fennell Episode Mixer and Compiler: Elina Godwin Host: Samantha Groth Community Coordinator: Chloe Gillespie SYN Community Coordinator: Erin Dick Social Media Producer: Matilda Fay Image: Unsplash CC: Jez Timms Music: Black Girl Magik by Sampa The Great The post #1843 Buried History appeared first on All The Best.

#1842 Thinking On Your Feet
Being on your feet could mean throwing another human in the air. It could also mean finding love while dancing five nights a week. But, one way or another, you’ll eventually have to step up. Into adulthood. — All Star by Romy Sher Cheerleaders are often seen on the sidelines, dancing around or supporting a team, but what does it look like when the cheerleaders are centre stage? Music: ‘Chill Soft’ by S Hope, B Poe, J Mobley, ‘Headhunted’ by D Rhymes, ‘Pop Dreams’ by CA Salyer, ‘Tyme’ by S Smith, ‘Tessalit’ by Blue Dot Sessions, ‘Copley Beat’ by Blue Dot Sessions  Supervising Producer: Britta Jorgensen — Dating in the Dancing Bubble by Kat Galang In the bars and clubs of every Australian capital city, a wild subculture of swing dance thrives. But in this addictive world of lively music and close community, making friends and dating comes with a unique set of rules. Music: ‘A Viper’s Moan’ by Willie Bryant, ‘Easy Does It’ by The Big 18, ‘Lindy Hopper’s Delight’ by Chick Webb, ‘Jump Through the Window’ by Roy Eldridge, ‘Sugarfoot Rag’ by Ella Fitzgerald Supervising Producer: Sarah Mashman — A Bird in Hand is Worth Two in the Grave by Patrick Lenton Stepping up in life meant that Patrick Lenton was on his way to being a grown up. But then a puppy and an uninvited bird confronted his assumptions of adulthood.
