The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age are increasing their podcast library with new series, the relaunch of the popular Real Footy, and expansion of the weekly news podcast Please Explain.

Good Weekend Talks will join the podcast library from this month, bringing the weekend lifestyle staple to life for readers’ ears. The podcast will showcase the magazine’s best features, narrated by professional voice actors, followed by a discussion between editor Katrina Strickland and the magazine’s writers such as Jane Cadzow, Tim Elliot, Melissa Fyfe and Konrad Marshall.

“The aim is to add another layer to our storytelling, discussing the most compelling issues raised in our features and introducing listeners to the writers and writing process behind them,” said Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland.

“Ash Barty, the anti-vaxxer movement, Scott Morrison’s Pentecostal church, the Melbourne doctor who mapped the clitoris and the man who runs the AFL are just some of the subjects that will be covered on Good Weekend Talks.”

The expanded podcast library follows on from the success of The Last Voyage of the Pong Su in October 2019 which won the podcast category at the Victorian Quill Awards.

“Podcasts are a key part of our commitment to high-quality, independent journalism. They build on the excellent journalism we publish every day and add another layer of content for our readers to engage with,” said Herald editor, Lisa Davies.

The Age editor, Alex Lavelle, said: “Our podcasting team has grown as part of our strategy of engaging new audiences and catering for the expectations of our subscribers. It was great to see our latest investigations podcast, The Last Voyage of the Pong Su, win a Quill Award last week, building on the success of Phoebe’s Fall, Wrong Skin, and our regular Please Explain and Real Footy podcasts.”
