    A shame the weekend posts are in a podcast. I never listen, lose attention after a minute or so. It’s not just you, I never listen to any podcasts!

      I agree fully, rtrish,

      There are many of us out there (here?) whose brains work visually, but only partially audibly. At uni, I never could remember what the lecturer said, but remembered the notes and the slides (if any!). My partner remembers what I said a week ago, but I can remember a track through the bush I went on once 20 years ago.

      Same holds today. If they had any consideration, the podcasts would be transcribed, wouldn’t they!

      Same as Facebook. They all say how great it is, that 60% of Australians are using it. To me that means that 40% are missing out. Stupid thoughtless government agencies (local through to federal) think it is easy because it is cheap.

      That’s what you get when you vote the way we do – stuff the minorities, they don’t matter.

    The demographic audience for this site are the older people who prefer to read rather than watch. I am one so the site is losing relevance for me. Why not give choice?

      We should have mentioned that the transcripts are available from Tuesday-Thursday. The regular eNewsletter still goes out on Sunday in addition to the podcast email. Cheers Janelle (editor)

    I too prefer the written word. Podcasts and videos are not my thing, so do not do them. Please give us the option of the written word. Thank you
