7am is Australia’s top daily podcast.
I’ve been an audio producer with 7am from May 2019 to the present.

About the show: 

7am is a daily news podcast from the publisher of The Monthly and The Saturday Paper. It tells the news through in-depth interviews and sharp analysis.

Hosted by award-winning investigative journalist and documentary host Ruby Jones, 7am is a smart, strong, character-driven account of the big story of the day: the background, who’s involved, and why it matters. This is news with narrative, every weekday.
