First Episode: 2020
This Australian bush fire season has been unprecedented. In this podcast, you will hear harrowing accounts of survival and the incredible acts of bravery and kindness which are helping the town of Malua Bay in southern New South Wales on the path to recovery. The town’s cast of heroes is a long one – the young surf lifesaver whose quick thinking spared hundreds of lives at the town beach, the RFS volunteers whose houses burned while they were saving others and the now homeless pharmacist who dispensed free medicine in the dark. This podcast captures the best of Australians.
