“Talking In Common” Podcast is Translated into Auslan

This podcast is about a range of topics from Australian friends Sophie and Kate.

This is your podcast of all things lifestyle with a heartbeat of human diversity and an all inclusive community ethos. We explore and discuss life as we know it through relationships, motherhood, kids, wellbeing and culture. This is not a ‘how to’ but more of an insight into the lives of ourselves and others and how we all manage to get by.

Their new mini-series “Being” is being released now and it is translated into Auslan.
