Good stuff

Lovely little tale. Good to hear Australian voices and content in this style.

great episode about Bronson

Great first episode. Round the Twist was a huge part of my childhood, even though I was born after the first season was filmed! Also loved the short stories of Paul Jennings. Really tapped into something about the experience of Australian childhood that is so hard to define. Look forward to the next episodes.

Awesome podcast

This is an awesome short podcast that makes an awesome first impression with a topic that I think we all have worried about. This is why I want from my ABC good job lads and lasses
