This week we’re bringing you stories from students at the Western Sydney University. The students have been studying the fundamentals of podcasting, giving them the expertise needed to produce their own podcast feature.

Each story involves a unique topic and perspective but are all linked by an exploration about the way we as people relate to each other and the world around us...


The cost of the cost-of-living

First, we face up to a discussion about how the cost of living crisis in Australia is impacting young people both at the moment and in the future.

Produced by Riley Birt.


One of da boiiz

Have you ever tried to fit-in so badly that you've made some questionable choices? Up next we hear the unexpected sacrifices Nico made as a young queer trying to  fit in with his heterosexual classmates. 

Produced by Nico Bruni.


The Heart and Soul Podcast

In our final story, Chris interviews friends and reflects on his life as part of a quest to find spiritual solitude.

Produced by Chris Mallas.


These stories are student works, made for the subject Pitch: Podcasting Essentials at Western Sydney University facilitated by Dr Roger Dawkins, with special thanks to Tegan Nicholls for being the tutor in 2023.
