Among the latest arrivals on the South Australian scene is City

Produced by Radio Adelaide’s Podcast Works, Adelaide Living has so far featured interviews with people such as SA Chief Entrepreneur Jim Whalley, senior Aboriginal man Michael Kumatpi Marrutya O’Brien (Uncle Mickey), Afghan-Australian social commentator and co-owner of East End restaurant Kutchi Deli Parwana Durkhanai Ayubi, and actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau.

authentic stories that celebrate the city,” Adelaide Lord Mayor
Sandy Verschoor says of Adelaide Living. “There’s so many people

at school reading stories to us. Being able to sit back and listen to
a person telling an authentic story is a special thing.”
