Shockwaves: The Bali Bombings is an audio documentary series that explores the lives of people in Australia and Bali who are impacted by the Bali Bombings.

The podcast opens with recollections of the night the bombs went off in The Sari Club and Paddy’s Bar. Moving through the immediate aftermath, the tireless work of the health workers in Bali and in Australia, the investigations and trial of the perpetrators, as well as how some of those who lost loved ones have forgiven the bombers, this podcast ultimately focuses on the effects of the tragedy 20 years on, and the hope and healing of those who survived.
