Desert Oases, Turquoise Waters and Harbour Dips: 'Places We Swim' on Their Fave Spots

"We knew we wanted to do a trip, we didn't know we wanted to do a book"  In 2016, writer and content producer Caroline Clements (Broadsheet’s founding editor) and her partner, photographer and environmental scientist Dillon Seitchik-Reardon, quit their jobs to begin a search for Australia’s most beautiful beaches, pools and swimming spots. The result was their book Places We Swim: part travel guide, part photo essay and part cultural study. The popularity of their first book quickly led to a second: Places We Swim Sydney and the couple will soon publish their third title Places We Swim California. Caroline and Dillon join the podcast to discuss their favourite swim spots both locally and abroad.  Subscribe on the LiSTNR app to make sure you don’t miss an episode. And keep up-to-date on everything Broadsheet has to offer at www.Broadsheet.com.au. Broadsheet Around Town is hosted by Emma Joyce and produced by Nicola Sitch.

Brian Ritchie's Guide to Mona Foma 2024

There’s a healthy chaos to Mona Foma. Like Mona (Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art) itself, the festival blends humour and absurdity with art from musicians and artists from around the world, stretching beyond the museum walls into Hobart and Launceston. Festival director and Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie has seen Mona Foma into its 16th year, and knows to embrace the chaos and unpredictability – like letting 2024 festival headliner Queens of the Stone Age book themselves. Brian joins the podcast to chat about this year's lineup.  Subscribe on the LiSTNR app to make sure you don’t miss an episode.

“I Didn’t Know How to Cook Then, but I Loved to Eat”: Chef-Restaurateur Junda Khoo on Kitchen Hacks, His Grandma’s Cooking and the Ho Jiak Philosophy

Today, we're chatting with Malaysian chef Junda Khoo, the restaurateur behind four Ho Jiak venues in Sydney. With a background in banking, Junda's path to professional cooking was unconventional. He credits his love of flavour to his grandmother, but he really learnt to cook as a teenager when he first moved to Sydney and was given $150 per week to spend on groceries. Today, Junda relishes the opportunity to challenge the meaning of 'authentic' Malaysian food and his cooking is guided by one simple principle: 'was it delicious?'.

Rebecca Harding and Ingrid Kesa's Razor-Sharp Aussie Beauty Brand Cares About Your Body

It all started with a stolen razor. Well, several really. Rebecca Harding would use her boyfriend's razor for its simpler and superior design. She quickly realised that women's grooming products were falling short in functionality. Enter Lui: a body-care brand that aims to elevate your everyday routine. For the past three years, Harding has worked alongside beauty writer and brand expert Ingrid Kesa to bring two products to life—a razor and shaving cream. The response has been immense. Rebecca and Ingrid join 'Around Town' to discuss building a brand, working with young Melbournian women to develop the formulations, and Lui's range of new products launching this week.

"One of Melbourne's Most Dramatic New Retail Experiences": Up There Store Opens a Subterranean Flagship On Flinders Lane

Up There Store was born in 2010 from a vision to bring the world’s most exclusive trainers and streetwear to Melbourne. Now, 13 years later, Up There has expanded its footprint moving from its McKillop Street boutique to an expansive new 345-square-metre flagship store in Flinders Lane. Melbourne architects Kennedy Nolan were engaged to undertake the transformation and the result is shimmering surfaces of flat and perforated galvanised steel, a palette of saturated colours and intense green flooring reminiscent of a grassy field. There’s also a “funhouse of mirrors” that makes up the sneaker wall. Plus, "it's Thai time" in Melbourne- another stellar Thai eatery opens in the CBD, serving regional Phuket cuisine alongside salty-sweet “Melbourne-style” fried chicken.  Featured on today's episode:  Pa Tong Thai Up There Store  New episodes of Broadsheet Melbourne Around Town drop Monday, Wednesday, Friday each week.

Banh Mi With a Difference in Brunswick

When Good Days started selling banh mi during lockdown, they were so popular they’d often sell out via online orders before the doors even opened. Now they're a permanent menu fixture at Good Days Hot Bread, a dedicated banh mi shop that opened this month, further up Sydney Road. While staying true to the core tenets of the French-Vietnamese rolls – pate, mayo, coriander, pickled carrot, cucumber and a protein in a crusty baguette – these interpretations are next-level. Owner Nam Nguyen joins Around Town to discuss the new opening.  Featured on today's episode:  Good Days Hot Bread New episodes of Broadsheet Melbourne Around Town drop Monday, Wednesday, Friday each week.

Hector’s Deli: Why We’re Moving to a Four-Day Work Week

The hospitality industry has rarely been synonymous with work-life balance. The team at Hector's Deli is determined to be different. The three-store group, known for serving up some of Melbourne’s best sandwiches, recently implemented a four-day work week. The change applies to full-time employees at its three venues in Richmond, Fitzroy and South Melbourne, as well as in its head office. As founder Dom Wilton and CEO Adam Brownell are keen to underscore, this is a permanent change – not a trial.

A New Gritty Outback Noir, Starring Simon Baker, to Watch this Week

Limbo is the latest film from Indigenous auteur Ivan Sen (Mystery Road, Goldstone) and stars an unrecognisable Simon Baker as a "Walter-Whiteish" outback detective.

Broadsheet contributor Lucy Bell Bird recently spoke to Baker about the new release and she joins Around Town with the details. Then, a barebones kitchen in Caulfield South is dishing cinnamon scrolls in two sizes, featuring oozing caramelised brown sugar and silky cream cheese icing.
