LiSTNR and Broadsheet Media create Melbourne and Sydney podcast guides


The podcasts will be published three times a week in an exclusive co-creation deal announced today

LiSTNR and Broadsheet Media have teamed up to create two new podcasts, Broadsheet Melbourne Around Town and Broadsheet Sydney Around Town.
The podcasts will be published three times a week in an exclusive co-creation deal announced today.

The podcasts will draw on Broadsheet’s unrivalled knowledge of the food, drink and culture scenes of Sydney and Melbourne and their surrounding suburbs. Each episode will deliver Sydneysiders and Melburnians a snappy, ten-minute audio wrap-up of the hottest new venues in town.

Hosted by Broadsheet’s editorial director Katya Wachtel for the Melbourne edition and national assistant editor Emma Joyce for the Sydney version, the podcasts will feature a rotating cast of Broadsheet editors to provide their finger-on-the-pulse expertise and reveal to listeners the real secrets of their city.

Broadsheet Media, founded in 2009 by Nick Shelton, is Australia’s leading independent publisher. The go-to culture guide, online and in print, celebrates and supports the best of Australian culture through original reporting and photography.
Broadsheet is available in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, and New Zealand. Every month more than 3 million people with a thirst for culture visit to see what’s happening in their city, connecting them to businesses and brands.

Deirdre Fogarty, LiSTNR content director – shortcasts, said: “Broadsheet has been such an invaluable and trusted source of knowledge for the goings on in Australia’s cities and beyond for more than a decade. The Broadsheet Around Town podcasts will give Melburnians and Sydneysiders the chance to tap into that incredible expertise on-the-go, and further add to LiSTNR’s growing suite of premium short-form content.”
Wachtel, said: “For 13 years and counting, Broadsheet has covered Australia’s endlessly evolving food and drink scene, as well as art and design, fashion, entertainment and travel – and the people that make those cultural industries so exciting and innovative.
“Our new podcasts on Melbourne and Sydney will share the latest in food, drink and culture news, and provide the kinds of behind-the-scenes gems that will give listeners even greater insight into their cities and the people and places defining them.”
