Extraordinary tales from regional Australia
LiSTNR‘s podcast series Stories of Us is a collection of tales from some of Australia’s biggest names and everyday heroes, celebrating regional Australian communities.
In each episode, host Sarah Grynberg is joined by a guest whose journey was made against the backdrop of regional Australia.
Grynberg’s conversations with the likes of activist and former Australian of the Year Grace Tame, singer Shannon Noll, musician Pete Murray and comedian Rhys Nicholson, uncover the joy, heartache, and wisdom that have shaped their lives.
The first episode features a lively chat with Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies.
Hailing from Newcastle, New South Wales, Ben explains how his love for the area has never waned, despite the global success he achieved with the band. “Wherever you’re born, and you grow up, you tend to just fall in love with it,” Gillies says.
Grynberg says “From diverse walks of life, this nation has given rise to exceptional individuals, whose stories serve as a boundless source of inspiration. It is an honour to traverse the many landscapes of regional Australia and celebrate these extraordinary stories.”
