The Regional 250

Did you know that almost 10 million Australians live outside of the major metropolitan cities and suburbs? 

And every single one of those 10 million people have a story to tell - a story about themselves, their family, their town or their region. In The Regional 250, we will chat to 250 of those people, learn about their town or region and let them tell their story in a relaxed "podversational" style. 

And to ensure that we cover as much of Australia as we can, we are going to limit ourselves to one podversation per Local Government Area (LGA) across Australia. That means that we'll cover 250 rural cities, towns, boroughs and shires from right across the country.

There'll be happy stories and sad stories. There'll be funny episodes and serious ones, too. But they'll be genuine. They'll be interesting. They'll be real.

And we can't wait to bring The Regional 250 to you.
