Fringe World... It's Complicated
This episode takes a candid look at the Perth Fringe World Festival through the eyes of Artists and audiences. The event grew exponentially in a relatively short space of time, from a pilot program in 2011 of 23 events. By 2018 it had become the third biggest Fringe Festival in the world. A range of interviews and discussions explore how the Festival benefits audiences and the arts community, and in the case of a venue hub called Noodle Palace, how it also has the potential to go terribly wrong. As you’ll see... It’s complicated. Thanks to the voices of Magnus Danger Magnus, Clara Cupcakes, Logy (Logy on Fire), Georgia Deguara (Yuck Circus), Ralph McCubbin Howell & Hannah Smith (Troll), Tomás Ford, plus audience folks - Simon and Selena, Travis and James. Special thanks to Alisa Voss (vocals) and Izaac Masters (piano) on 'Ave Maria'. Sound design by Frankensound. Written, spoken and produced by Roly Skender.

The Dark Heart of MONA
MONA (The Museum of Old and New Art) in Hobart, Tasmania is the largest privately funded Art Museum in the southern hemisphere. It's been called a museum of sex and death, and was once described by its enigmatic founder David Walsh as a subversive, adult, Disneyland. But how might MONA be changing? Special thanks to interviewees Pippa Mott, Alex Johnston and Tim the bus driver. Written, spoken and produced by Roly Skender. Music composition and guitar by Roly Skender.

Australiyaniality Part I - Songlines
How do Songlines work across the Australian Continent? A Songline is 'one of the paths across the land (or sometimes the sky) which mark the route followed by localised "creator-beings" during the Dreaming. The paths of the songlines are recorded in traditional songs, stories, dance, and painting.' I was asked to participate in an exhibition project called Australiyaniality by my artist friend Matt McVeigh, which opened up the opportunity to explore my own thoughts on Australian identity, while meeting new artists and cultural leaders along the way. They were able to shed some light on the Songlines and how they connect to people and land. This is part one of a series that will explore further questions around Australian identity and the artists choosing to question it. Australiyaniality website - www.australiyaniality.com

Brothers & Sisters - The Music of "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"

This episode follows one of those reflections, looking back at a project that brought together a unique mix of musicians for a series of concerts at the Perth Fringe World Festival in 2015.
