Grand Gestures: New SBS podcast celebrates the bond with grandparents


SBS has released a new podcast that gets right to the heart of one 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 Grand Gestures, an interview podcast with 10 notable Australians re-telling family stories and speaking about the special bonds they have with their grandparents.

“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,” says Hoo.

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

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

Its diverse line-up of guests includes singer Deni Hines, former MasterChef contestant Alice Zaslavsky and actress Pia Miranda.

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.
