Rural and Regional Interest Podcasts (2/3)

All this week on Table Talk we are discussing Podcasts

In our first post, we introduced all things podcasts and listed some wonderful farming and agriculture specific podcasts from Australia and across the world.

Today, we want to bring you some non-farming specific, but super relevant rural interest podcasts that discuss rural issues and shed light on the wonderful things going on across our communities and regions.

We all love Landline and now there is a way to listen to popular stories you have seen on the television in the past. There are only three episodes out at present (as at 15 August 2018) but more on the way, and we love that the very first episode is about Deniliquin, where I live (How Landline helped Deni Ute Muster become a thing)!
