Judith Whelan

One from Media Week, in which Whelan talks about the legacy and challenges of a daily newspaper. “Every single media organisation in the world is having to transform itself. That transformation inevitably means that new jobs will emerge and jobs, which have been around for a long time, might disappear.”

Edmund Tadros

Edmund Tadros in a Fourth Estate discussion about how data journalism is offering new opportunities for storytelling. “Programmers would easily manipulate large sets of data but they didn’t know what to do with it. And I would look at them doing this and think, there’s a story here.”

Heidi Blake

On Beyond the Pitch, Blake talks about the Qatari Plot to Buy The World Cup: “It was overwhelming. But it was also like being given the keys to the world’s biggest sweet shop, because it was just kind of such a treasure trove of extraordinary documents … which as a journalist is a dream come true.”

Allan Clarke

One from media panel show Fourth Estate where Clarke discusses how Aboriginal media is redefining the narrative: “Those rounds are normally sort of niche and periphery…it’s such a shame that it takes an international company to come here and invest in our stories…”

Yassmin Abdel-Mageid

In Conversation with Richard Fiedler, Abdel-Mageid talks about her unapologetically big life: “How many stories of young muslim people or young muslim women, that you’ve heard of come from themselves?…I grew up in Brisbane never seeing anyone who reflected my experience…one of the big drivers for me was that this was a story that exists…”

Paul Farrell

On Behind the Lines Farrell talks about the ‘surprising and disturbing’ police investigation of his work: “I had lodged a complaint with the privacy commissioner in order to try and work out a little bit more about the extent of the surveillance on me and potentially my sources, and through a somewhat strange series of events, the AFP wrote some submissions to oppose releasing some of that information to me…So good job, guys.”

Paul Farrell at Storyology

David Clinch and Stephanie Hunt at Storyology

Holly Wainwright

On this episode of I don’t know how she does it (Mamamia podcast network), Wainwright speaks to Rebecca Judd. “It’s the show for you if you’ve ever looked at someone else, at the school gate or maybe on your TV, and thought, ‘How the hell does she do all that?’”

Tim Duggan

On 2ser’s Old New Borrowed Blue, Duggan picks some tunes and talks excitedly about new media. “It’s quite an exciting time to be in media. The whole media landscape just changes weekly and I think, within a year what we do will completely change…and that’s the exciting part.”
