Evolution of Storytelling; Podcasts

Are oral forms of storytelling making a comeback into the main media industry? With the success of S-Town, a new podcast from the creators of 'Serial' and 'This American Life', it seems like more people are tuning into podcasts rather than visual storytelling. Will this be the new form the public will tune in to for stories? ABC Radio Producer and co-founder of Audiocraft Jess Bineth joined Myles Houlbrook Walk, to help us understand the up and coming success of podcasts.

Producer: Monica Samayoa.

Labour Market and the Economy

Although growth in relation to the Australian economy is increasing, this month labour market conditions were weaker than expected, and expectations were that the labour market was already weak. The housing market is a problem, as is the fact that one third of borrowers who don't have a month's mortgage buffer as well as the issue of interest only loans which are the majority of loan types. Underemployment is high and there is a push to part time employment rather than full time. There is also the issue of wages not increasing. Myles- Houlbrook Walk was joined by another friend of the Daily, Tim Harcourt to discuss more. 

Producer: Pascale Freer.

Myles-Houlbrook Walk  was joined by a friend of the Daily and regular business technology expert, author and columnist Paul Wallbank to speak more about this issue.

Romulus and his brother Remus came a long way from, according to folkloric accounts, being abandoned and raised by a she-wolf who suckled them to health, although in fairness they were sons of the god Mars. That might seem a little bit far-fetched and it's actually unclear to what extent King Romulus and his brother actually existed or who else might have been responsible for the founding of Rome and other feats ascribed to them...
