New voices. New stories: SBS reveals podcast line up for 2024
SBS is gearing up for another bumper year of podcasts that shine a light on unique Australian stories, starting this month with some of the nation’s best-selling authors and extraordinary deaf Australians.
The SBS Book Club features some of the biggest names in Australian fiction, including Shankari Chandran, Melissa Lucashenko, Tony Birch, Yumna Kassab and Mirandi Riwoe.
Host and Executive Producer Sarah Malik discusses how novels reflect the realities of modern multicultural Australia – including the themes of race, family, friendship and love.
“It is my joy and delight to share a project close to my heart, exploring the power of stories and literature to reshape the way we see ourselves and the world,” Malik says.
This year also marks a new chapter for Auslan podcast Our Deaf Ways; a follow up season titled Humans of the Australian Deaf Community.
SBS Podcast and Digital Audio Manager Caroline Gates says the 2024 slate of podcasts will continue to amplify new voices and stories.
“This year, we have an exciting line-up of podcasts including a second season of the Seen podcast hosted by Yumi Stynes.”
2024 will also see the premiere of companion podcasts to SBS’s television content: Alone Australia: The Podcast and Insightful with Kumi Taguchi.
More than a dozen new podcasts are in production to be released throughout the year. Listen here.
