Australia’s “explicitly raw but iconic Outback Australian newspaper known as The Betoota Advocate report fiercely – without fear or favour.” Usually known for it’s biting contemporary satire of Australian life, it also tackles more serious issues, although the style isn’t always so serious!
They introduce an episode discussing my latest podcast project “Making Waves” like this:
A titan of Australian reporting, Nance Haxton joins Clancy and Errol on The Betoota Advocate Podcast this week. Talking about her wild career chasing stories all around the country. From her Walkley award winning coverage of Woomera Detention Centre, to her historical reporting about the Queensland blackbirding trade. Haxton is now focusing her attention on ‘Water’ – rivers, lakes and creeks. What do they mean to who? Who owns them? And who is exploiting them.
