I am using YouTube Music for my podcast on both my android and iPhone. Integrates nicely since I pay for premium which includes Music. Took me a while to navigate and get used to the integration. But worth it for my use to keep everything in the same app.

However Overcast is another good one which I used to use a lot.:grinning:

New podcast Grand Gestures is the nonna bear hug we all need

Get to the heart of our deepest multicultural Australian relationships – the one with our grandparents!


There’s something special about the nonnas, zeidas and babushkas who have shaped not just the generations that followed them, but Australia itself.

Comedian Lizzy Hoo is the host of SBS’s new podcast Grand Gestures, an interview podcast with 10 notable Australians re-telling family stories and speaking about the special bonds they have with their grandparents.

Hear heart-warming and heart-breaking stories of grandparents who were second parents, confidants, heroes, and custodians of knowledge and traditions.

Grand Gestures is like a warm hug from your grandparents – it’s full of warmth and stories that remind you of your own loved ones,” said Hoo.

“Especially as we get older, we start to realise our grandparents are the keepers of all the family stories and histories.”

A tapestry of multicultural and multilingual Australia, Grand Gestures talks candidly about the triumphs and challenges of settling in Australia, the migrant experience, and multi-generational, cross-cultural family life.

“There’s a lot of laughs, beautiful stories about happy times but also stories of overcoming life’s challenges like illness, disability and discrimination.”

Unique and personal, Grand Gestures has a diverse line-up of guests:

  • Singer Deni Hines talks about growing up in a family of three strong women; her mother pop icon Marcia and her Jamaican grandmother Esme who moved in to help raise Deni when Marcia became pregnant as a teenager.

  • Former Masterchef contestant Alice Zaslavsky shares how her love of gardening, food and teaching comes from her Georgian grandmother.

  • Actress Pia Miranda became a household name through the Australian cult classic, Looking for Alibrandi . She speaks about deepening her connection to her nonno and nonna’s family and religion, including spending her 50th birthday in a Sicilian cemetery.

  • Walkley Award winning journalist Pat Abboud shares the love story behind his grandparents’ arranged marriage and learning Arabic in the kitchen with his teita (grandmother).

  • Singer-songwriter Emily Wurramara reflects on growing up going between her gagu (grandmother) in the Northern Territory learning Dreamtime stories and singing karaoke at her Filipino grandmother’s house.

  • Comedian Emo Majok’s reflects on the legacy of his grandmother, who escaped war-torn Sudan and now has around 50 descendants in Australia.

  • Nadine J. Cohen shares how, after the death of her parents, she and her sister were left with the responsibility of caring for her grandmother who survived the Holocaust, but whose mind returned to that time increasingly as her health declined.

Grand Gestures is available on the SBS Audio app, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, LiSTNR, and wherever you stream podcasts. Grand Gestures was produced in partnership with Deadset Studios.


The podcast launches today with Alice Zaslavsky as guest on episode 1.

The team behind 9News Queensland and 9Podcast’s critically acclaimed podcast Hannah’s Story celebrated another significant achievement at last night’s Walkley Foundation 2024 Mid-Year Celebration of Journalism.

They received the prestigious Our Watch Award for Excellence in Reporting on Violence Against Women. It adds to their other accolades for this groundbreaking production, which include the Kennedy Award for Outstanding Podcast, the Spotlight category at the Australian Podcast Awards, and the Best Narrative Documentary podcast at the renowned New York Festival Radio Awards.

Hannah’s Story, presented by 9News Queensland presenter Melissa Downes, produced by 9News Queensland producer Jessica Lodge, and edited by Adam Buncher of 9Podcasts, has become a beacon of impactful storytelling since its release in 2023.

Through six episodes, the podcast explored the tragic events involving Hannah Clarke and her children, shedding light on one of Australia’s most heartbreaking cases of domestic violence. Its compelling narrative has dominated the Australian podcast charts and resonated globally, earning numerous national and international accolades.

As the pioneering podcast from 9News, Hannah’s Story exemplifies the network’s commitment to investigative journalism beyond traditional formats. Its impact extends beyond recognition, playing a pivotal role in educational initiatives on coercive control. Integrated into programs by Queensland and Victoria Police, as well as Small Steps 4 Hannah, an advocacy effort led by Hannah Clarke’s parents, Sue and Lloyd, the podcast stands as a cornerstone in raising awareness and fostering conversations about identifying and understanding coercive control.

In a joint statement, Melissa Downes, Jessica Lodge and Adam Buncher said: “What a night! We are immensely grateful for the recognition received, which underscores the transformative power of storytelling in journalism.

Hannah’s Story has taken on a life of its own, and we will forever be honoured to have been entrusted with sharing the Clarke family’s story, transforming tragedy into a narrative that offers support and education to others. It’s incredibly gratifying to see this podcast continue to make a meaningful impact and evolve into a lasting educational resource worldwide.”

Kylie Blucher, Managing Director of Nine Queensland, said: “Hannah’s Story is the podcast that keeps on giving. This latest award further underscores the transformative power of storytelling and reaffirms 9News Queensland’s role in connecting deeply with our community and beyond. It celebrates our team’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of our leading news bulletin and showcases our ability to attract and engage new audiences nationally and internationally. Melissa, Jess and Adam have every reason to be proud – and so do we."

Mia Stern, Head of 9Podcasts, said: “Hannah’s Story continues to be deservedly recognised on a national and international stage with multiple awards under its belt. It has set the benchmark for 9News podcasts and paved the way for numerous new opportunities in our newsrooms nationwide, with multiple podcasts currently in development. On behalf of everyone at 9Podcasts, we are incredibly proud of our team and excited about what lies ahead.”

7NEWS releases major new true crime podcast The Truth About Amy

The Seven Network has premiered a groundbreaking true crime podcast from the investigative team behind two of Australia’s most popular podcasts, The Lady Vanishes and Shot in the Dark.

The Truth About Amy , produced by award-winning Seven journalists Alison Sandy and Liam Bartlett, reopens the case of the shocking death of 24-year-old Amy Wensley in 2014.

It’s exactly 10 years since the lifeless body of the mother-of-two was found in her bedroom in Serpentine, Western Australia. She’d died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Outside in the driveway, Amy’s car engine was still running, and her two daughters were strapped into the back seat – with clothes, toys and other essentials, ready to leave.

Amy had gone inside to get one last thing… and never came out.

Uniformed constables first on the scene immediately felt suspicion, but detectives who arrived soon after were quick to categorise Amy’s death as a suicide.

That seemed impossible by the available evidence and to anyone who knew her. To her family, Amy was a devoted mum who put caring for her kids above all else.

More than a year in the making, The Truth About Amy reinvestigates that fateful day and the years before and after, reigniting the hunt for answers in one of Australia’s most intriguing cold cases.

Episodes will be released weekly and will be supported by editorial coverage across the breadth of Seven West Media’s broadcast, print and digital platforms including 7NEWS, 7NEWS Spotlight, Sunrise, The Morning Show, The West Australian, Perth Now, 7NEWS.com.au and The Nightly.

Riveting murder mystery podcast The Lady Vanishes became one of Australia’s most successful true crime podcasts with more than 20 million downloads, and delved into the bizarre disappearance of much-loved mother, teacher and friend, Marion Barter, in 1997.

Seven Network Director of News and Current Affairs and Seven West Media Editor-in-Chief, Anthony De Ceglie, said: “This is a gripping case with many questions still to be answered, both for the family and for Amy. Alison and Liam have been tireless in their investigative pursuit for over a year now, and with every episode will edge closer to the truth.

“By harnessing the power of our multi-platform reach through quality journalism and compelling storytelling, we’re shining light on a case that represents a much broader issue which deserves the nation’s attention.”

Alison Sandy said: “When I first heard about the circumstances of Amy’s death, I was shocked at how poorly it was handled and knew we had to delve deeper. For the first time, The Truth About Amy will be revealed.”

Liam Bartlett said: “Amy Wensley was a young mum with hope in her heart and two young children who adored her. She most certainly had everything to live for and any suggestion to the contrary is both ill-informed and nonsensical.

“All signs pointed to Amy preparing a new start, but that fresh beginning came to an abrupt end in a small bedroom when a shotgun went off in circumstances that can only be described as highly suspicious.”

The Truth About Amy is available now on the free iHeart app or wherever you get your podcasts

The opening episode of season one, ‘Bevan Sent’ looks at the incredible maiden season of Michael Bevan at Tasmania, which ended in a record-breaking campaign for the legendary batter and a long-awaited trophy for the Tigers.

Supercars, in partnership with LiSTNR, today announced a new podcast, Drivers Only, which takes super fans behind the scenes with some of the best Supercars drivers.

Launching today, Drivers Only offers fans unfiltered and raw insights directly from the drivers themselves, taking fans behind the scenes with the sport’s biggest names, allowing listeners to hear directly from their favourite drivers regularly between each round of the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.

Each episode will be introduced by Greg Rust, from LiSTNR’s Rusty’s Garage podcast and the eight episode series will have candid conversations with drivers, with the first episode featuring Supercars drivers David Reynolds, Ryan Wood, and Thomas Randle.

The inaugural episode launches just days out from the NTI Townsville 500, which runs from 5-7 July.

The Repco Supercars Championship (formally Australian Touring Car Championship) is the premier motorsport category in Australasia and one of Australia’s biggest sports. Globally, it is recognised as the best touring car category in the world and a leader in motorsport entertainment.

Supercars Head of Broadcast, Nathan Prendergast, said: "This podcast gives Supercars drivers their own platform to talk about whatever they want in their own words and show off a lighter side not often seen at the racetrack. It’s a fantastic opportunity for fans to connect with the drivers on a more personal level.

Drivers Only not only boosts our digital offerings but also enriches the fan experience. It’s about giving fans unparalleled access to the personalities behind the helmets.”

Greg Rust, Broadcaster and Host of Rusty’s Garage, said**:** “It’s a bit like handing the kids the keys to your favourite car! Supercars represented over 15 years of my TV life and I still love it immensely with several drivers, legends and team personnel featuring on my podcast. But what’s missing from that offering is a conversation, not steered by journos or a broadcaster like me, one that lets the fans eavesdrop on the drivers and the kind of stuff they talk about in the paddock. I’m really proud they’ve decided to add it to our Garage line-up.”

Launching today on LiSTNR, 2 July, Drivers Only will have eight 30-minute episodes to be released after each round of the 2024 Championship.

New NITV Radio podcast: Ngiyang. Meet the people reclaiming the Wiradyuri language.

wiray ngiyang, wiray mayiny – No language, no people

Ahead of NAIDOC Week 2024, NITV Radio has released a new podcast, Ngiyang, which tells the story of how the Wiradyuri language is being reclaimed by the people of central NSW and celebrates Indigenous perspectives.

Continuing NITV Radio’s proud tradition of championing First Nations stories, knowledges, cultures and voices, Ngiyang gives multicultural and multilingual audiences a glimpse into the journey of reclaiming and reviving the Wiradyuri language as well as the triumphs of teaching and learning Wiradyuri.

As part of SBS’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), NITV Radio will expand content in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages and promote language growth through its podcast content.

Hosted by Lowanna Grant, NITV Radio Executive Producer, the new podcast features Wiradyuri language pioneer, Uncle Stan Grant Senior, along with language teachers and learners, speaking their language and how this has enriched their lives as Wiradyuri people.

An insightful and personal look into the importance of First Nations languages, Uncle Stan Grant Senior tells how his grandfather Wilfred Johnson taught him Wiradyuri language as a child and instructed him to keep the language alive.

Host Lowanna Grant is the granddaughter of Uncle Stan Grant Senior and also studied Wiradyuri language herself: “I’m thrilled to share the stories in Ngiyang with all Australians because it records a part of our history – the reclamation and revival of Wiradjuri language.

Ngiyang celebrates what our Elders have achieved and what is being done to secure language and culture for the next generation of Wiradyuri people.

“These are stories close to my heart, and it’s been a privilege to record my pop telling his story in his own words as well as speak to other Wiradyuri people about their language journey, and hopefully help more Australians connect meaningfully with the longest continuous culture on the planet.”

The experiences of guests are told in first-person and share how Wiradyuri language is being revitalised and how Wiradyuri people are being empowered through reclaiming their language.

Each guest on the podcast shares how they learned the language, including members of Uncle Stan Grant Senior’s family who were instrumental to the restoration of the Wiradyuri language and the development of the first Wiradyuri language dictionary.

Teachers, students and artists share their favourite word or phrase in Wiradyuri as well as how they are passing on the knowledge they have obtained, what it means to speak in language and how it has enriched their lives as Wiradyuri people.

Ngiyang is available on the SBS Audio App, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, LiSTNR and wherever you stream podcasts.

NFL Media has axed popular podcast series Around the NFL after 11 seasons.

Such a shame that the podcast came to an end. The preview and flagship Sunday review shows were must listen during the season. For those who haven’t listened to it, the show had the same kind of charm that Top Gear did: the show was always more about the relationship between the hosts rather than just the football.

The show had gone on an unexpected hiatus in late May, with no official word from anyone until yesterday (there were a series of cryptic posts from the hosts during this time). There was speculation it was contract related made more complicated by the potential NFL Media/ESPN merger. More recently, however, insiders (on Reddit, so it could be bunkum) have stated that Dan Hanzus had stepped on a number of toes within management and was cut, with Marc Sessler walking with him.

It has been announced that Gregg Rosenthal is staying to launch a new podcast, NFL Daily, which starts later this week with a rotating crew of guests. Dan and Marc appear, from their social media posts today, to be working on something together.


Thanks for this shggestion. I’ve tried tried all the suggestions and found Pocket Casts is the closest thing out there to Google Podcasts. Needed some settings to be set initially to make it work the same way. Now I just need to get used to the different look.

It’s compatible with Android Auto and is the best one when switching from the car to phone, to continue listening to the same podcast.

Yeah, I’ve been listening to this podcast for about 10 years. Pretty disappointing how it all ended.

News Corp’s news.com.au last week released its first ever investigative podcast series, The Missing $49 Million. It investigates the wild life of Alan Metcalfe, who convinced hundreds of hopeful mum and dad investors he had found the secret code to artificial intelligence buried in the Bible. Metcalfe persuaded over 600 supporters to contribute millions of dollars to his new venture, but when he died in 2017 he left them penniless, wondering how they could have been conned and desperately trying to find out what happened to their money.




The gripping new podcast series from 9News Queensland and 9Podcasts, The Ultimate Sacrifice, launches today (July 15), delving into the harrowing events of December 12, 2022, when two police officers were murdered in a shocking ambush at Wieambilla, Queensland.


On a day that left an indelible mark on the state and shook the nation, a routine callout to a remote property in Wieambilla, west of Brisbane, plunged four young police officers into the grip of unimaginable evil.

Constables Rachel McCrow and Matthew Arnold died in a cold-blooded execution at the property, while their colleagues, Constables Randall Kirk and Keely Brough, bravely risked their lives to call for backup. Despite sustaining injuries, they miraculously escaped and survived the ambush. Innocent neighbour Alan Dare, who courageously sought to investigate the unfolding chaos, was also shot dead.

The Ultimate Sacrifice , led by the acclaimed duo of 9News Queensland presenter Melissa Downes and producer Jessica Lodge, who made the award-winning podcast Hannah’s Story, confronts the haunting question: how did a routine callout lead to Queensland’s deadliest police shooting and Australia’s first Christian terrorist attack?

In four compelling episodes dropping in the first two weeks, The Ultimate Sacrifice meticulously examines the events leading up to the deaths of six people, including the three killers.

The podcast will revisit the six-hour gun battle waged by the police officers, and explore the long-term investigation into conspiracy and religious extremism that reveals how the murderers – once respected teachers – turned to heinous violence. It also covers the arrest of an American man, discovered nearly a year after the ambush to be connected with the killers.

From Monday, July 29, the podcast will continue by tracking the four-week coronial inquest into the massacre with frequent episodes. Listeners will receive updates on unfolding evidence and conclusions, including testimonies, new details, previously unheard recordings, and crucial evidence revealing the heroism and camaraderie displayed on that tragic day.

Melissa Downes said: “December 12, 2022, is a day that left a lasting impression on us all, a stark reminder of how unexpected tragedy can profoundly touch our community forever. The Ultimate Sacrifice is our heartfelt exploration into the events of that unforgettable day and an earnest pursuit of answers. It is a tribute to the police lives lost and a solemn recognition of the bravery shown by all who responded.”

Jessica Lodge said: “Having witnessed the impact of our first 9News podcast, Hannah’s Story, we approached this new project with a sense of privilege and responsibility. As we uncover new evidence during the upcoming inquest, we hold the highest regard for Rachel and Matthew, who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Our goal is to ensure their courage and the events of that fateful day are honoured with the utmost respect.”

Head of 9Podcasts, Mia Stern, said: “The team behind The Ultimate Sacrifice is exceptional, bringing award-winning talent to this new podcast. It will serve as a tool for understanding, education and emotional reflection as Australia revisits that harrowing day. With Melissa and Jessica leading the way, we have the perfect duo to navigate the complexities of this story with expertise and empathy.”

The Ultimate Sacrifice is available now wherever you get your podcasts (Spotify, Apple Podcasts). It is produced in a partnership between 9News and 9Podcasts.

myDRIVESCHOOL, in partnership with LiSTNR and funded by the Australian Government, today announced a new podcast, Keep Your Wheels On, which aims to educate drivers on safe driving habits and techniques.

Launching today, Keep Your Wheels On is a collection of drivers reflecting on times that they have experienced unsafe driving situations, and features guidance from driver education experts who provide advice for safer driving.

Hosted by Greg Rust, from LiSTNR’s Rusty’s Garage and Lisa Skaife, Founder and CEO of myDRIVESCHOOL, each podcast episode features a special guest sharing their driving history. With guests including actor Shane Jacobson, former Supercars racer and four-time Bathurst 1000 winner Greg Murphy, and Victoria Police – Road Policing Assistant Commissioner Glenn Weir, Keep Your Wheels On explores important driving lessons to help listeners become safer and more aware drivers.

Lisa Skaife, Founder and CEO myDRIVESCHOOL, said: “Loved doing this podcast with Rusty, and some amazing guests with great insights and mind-blowing stories. We laughed, cried and learnt some, and I hope the listeners will too … all the best and keep your wheels on!”

Todd Stevens, Senior Executive Producer ‑ Branded Podcasts, said: “The stories revealed in this new podcast series are incredible; from Samantha who crashed her car driving tired, but then became paralysed when her ambulance driver also fell asleep and crashed, to Angela who ended up $70,000 in debt by deciding to drive her new car uninsured.

“It is true that this podcast features expert commentary that could help you to become a safer driver, but it is also about much more than that. It is about learning from the experiences of real people who showcase just how quickly a crash can happen, and the longstanding impacts that can occur when it does.

“Rusty and Lisa had not heard these crash survivor’s stories until they sat down in the recording studio and so their reactions are real and unfiltered. We catch the laughs, but also hear the real frustration and tears as they unpack these moments with their expert guests.”

Launching today on LiSTNR, 16 July, Keep Your Wheels On will have eight weekly episodes.
