/ News / Newsletters / Podcasting Perfectionists


You’ve probably heard us banging on about podcasting lately and with good cause, it’s something our 50 volunteer podcasters take pretty seriously. Each and every week our program production team lift content that’s previously aired on JOY 94.9, repackage it and share it via our podcast service. Traditional radio means that we have previously been restricted to providing LGBTI news, music and interviews to our broadcast zone within Melbourne’s metro area. In the early naughties we were able to push a step further with streaming online to the world via JOY.org.au. Today with thanks to our program production team, the global LGBTIQ community can access content important to them, sometimes in countries where there are no other resources like it.

In 2017 our podcast service is pushing above and beyond not only sharing your favorite on-air moments from JOY 94.9 but also with new exclusive content available only via podcast, such as;

  • Presented by Tony ‘Reality Check’ shares LGBT world news and a movie review plus a heavy dose of critical thinking and skeptical analysis of pseudoscience and the paranormal, on a
    monthly bases.
  • Produced by Peter, ‘LA Spinz’ is a weekly syndicated music and entertainment show with a Los Angeles lean.
  • This is Owl Lives hosted by Lisa and Sue, is a fortnightly podcast from 40 plus lady lovers who give listeners intriguing, touching and humorous stories of life in and around Melbourne
  • Plus more and exciting podcast only content to come.

In September 2016, JOY reached a new podcasting record, experiencing 41,428 podcast downloads across the month and our download numbers have been consistently high since. We appreciate the support our members are bringing to our podcast service but please don’t stop there. For every share of a podcast you make, for every podcast program you subscribe to, for every episode you rate or review, it may just help someone within the LGBTI global village living in fear or isolation learn more about our communities story and could just be the thing they need to hear to fell connected, supported and loved..
