Welcome to 100 Towns
100 Towns is our upcoming podcast series and we need your help. In 100 Towns, we'll be talking (via telephone or Zoom) to publicans in 100 different regional towns across Australia - and you can help us find them.
Our criteria for including guests on 100 Towns are pretty simple and straightforward:
- The pub must be located in a town that has a population of less than 5000.
- The pub must be at least 100km away from the nearest state or territory capital city.
- We will only be speaking with one pub per town / immediate region - a significant part of our conversation will be about the town and the region, so we don't want to double up.
- The publican must have lived in the town / region / district for a minimum of 10 years (not necessarily running the pub, though).
- We are going to try and maximise our geographical scope so if we find too many pubs from similar regions / districts, we won't be able to include all of them - first come, first served.
100 Towns - registration of interest
We have a registration of interest page that contains a form that we'd like you to fill in. That gives us enough information to contact you and arrange your conversation on 100 Towns. As we mentioned above, we can only accommodate one pub per town / immediate area and so we will need to work on a first come, first served basis.
We are thrilled to be able to say that we already have sufficient interest from the following areas - unfortunately that means that we won't be able to feature any more pubs from this region at this stage.
- North Eastern Victoria (specifically along the Murray)
- North Western Victoria / South Western New South Wales (within 150kms of Mildura)
