Families, Teachers, Students


ABC has produced four podcasts on Religion and Spirituality. Each has an extensive back catalogue of episodes on a range of topics, which could be used in a flipped classroom approach in years 10-12, or clipped to add a sound byte on a unique perspective to a class discussion.


“Compass explores the interface between religion and life as experienced by individuals and communities - including ordinary Australians, public leaders, religious thinkers and philosophers.”


God Forbid

“Religion: it’s at the centre of world affairs, but profound questions still remain. Why are you here? What happens when you die? Does God matter? God Forbid seeks the answers.”


Religion and Ethics Report

“Your weekly window into the world of religious affairs and ethical issues in Australia and around the globe.”


Soul Search

“Soul Search explores contemporary religion and spirituality from the inside out — what we believe, how we express it, and the difference it makes in our lives.”
