The ABC has released two new podcasts Stuff The British Stole and Thin Black Line after recently receiving the 2020 Award for Best Network or Publisher by the Australian Podcast Awards, alongside an array of awards for individual podcasts.
Stuff The British Stole is the story of colonialism, told through stuff… Award-winning journalist, podcaster and author Marc Fennell (SBS’s The Feed, ABC’s Download This Show, Audible’s It Burns) takes listeners on a globetrotting account of history as he traces the journeys of artifacts from across the world and how they’ve come to be housed in British museums and galleries.
Marc, calling this series his “favourite” podcast so far, selects one artifact each episode and is taken on a wild, evocative, sometimes funny, often tragic adventure of how it got to where it is today.
“I realised these objects were a great doorway into our history, my history, Australia’s history, and the history of dozens of countries,”
The full series of Thin Black Line, is presented by Walkley Award-winning investigative journalist Allan Clarke (Unravel True Crime: Blood On The Tracks).
This podcast explores why Daniel Yock’s death had such a profound impact, returning to the scene, on a spring afternoon in Brisbane’s Musgrave Park, as the 18-year-old traditional dancer and amateur boxer Daniel Yock is drinking with his mates.
When a police van arrives, the mood suddenly changes, triggering a dramatic chain of events according to the one eyewitness who saw it all unfold, speaking publicly for the first time in almost three decades.
