The Youth Vote Podcast episode 1 is live!

During Semester 1 this year, the students in our Podcast Excel worked with professional podcaster Joel Martin to create 8 episodes of ‘The Youth Vote’ – a series that amplifies the voices of young people as they converse with leading figures in the spaces they care about.

The new website hosting the series (designed by Parker D) just went live, so head over there and check out episode 1 in which Maya K & Sholto M interview Will Kostakis, an award-winning YA and MG writer. In the episode they discuss getting published at a young age, the issues queer people face in the industry and more.

New episodes will go live every Monday for the next 7 weeks and will be available on all your favourite podcast platforms. 

A massive thank you to all the students involved, as well as Joel Martin, Laura Wild, the team at Regional Arts Victoria, Gully T for the music and Sara-Jane Smith who kept the educational wheels turning despite all the lockdown madness!
