It's Radiothon time at Triple R. As an independent media organisation, Triple R relies on its listeners to help support and fund its programming each year.
For their special Radiothon edition of the show, Dylan and Kulja are joined by regular guest Dave Nichols who gives a history lesson on the longevity of Triple R and his own decades-long involvement at the station. Grapevine regular and Victorian State Correspondent for The Guardian, Benita Kolovos, chats about her community radio roots and reporting on state politics and government accountability.
Plus, Ben Harrington and Dan Morganti, current and former podcast editors for The Grapevine, get into working on the show and their involvement across the station, and regular guest Jeff Sparrow reports live from a strike for better working conditions for university staff at Melbourne Uni to chat about people power and the community spirit.
And finally, musician Emma Russack reflects on how her career has intersected with the station.
