Episode notes

I was talking to my housemate about someone. And her response to the situation that I explained was just like, 'grow up'. And I just thought it was the funniest insult" - Alice Skye

Alice adapted an idea that was to become a short story. It traces her experience returning to her home town of Horsham, Victoria.

She is a Wergaia woman from Jardwadjali country.

About the guitar

It's a Gibson J45 Vintage Sunburst, a model nicknamed "The Workhorse".

First released in 1942 it has a storied history with many famous artists relying on its mahogany construction along with renowned "full, balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection".

A very warm thanks to Chris at Australis Music for supplying this magnificent instrument.
