P is for Port Kembla is our maiden episode for the A to Z of Wollongong podcast. After an epic few months of collecting fascinating interviews throughout the Illawarra, we’re cooking up the maiden episode in the (thankfully air-conditioned room) band room.
This is me and my sound producer doing our thing.
We’re a tad scrambled from the heat and a loss of our couch to a dripping air conditioning unit overnight. This is what happens when you set yourself a deadline you refuse to break, kids. Don’t try this at home.
Our maiden episode is live! Take a look at P for Port Kembla
Welcome to the first episode of what we hope is an interesting exploration of Wollongong and the Illawarra for your ears. We’re kicking the podcast off with P for Port Kembla. Why? Because in typical Port Kembla style, the fiercely proud locals backed us to the hilt. We received so much interest, we could almost do an A to Z of Port Kembla.
The podcast itself promises to be a collection of highlights from the creative, business and innovation streets within the Illawarra fresh for your ears. We’re letting you explore the Gong in a way that maybe COVID-19 put a halt to through the eyes of real locals with really wonderful ideas.
You can access the A to Z of Wollongong podcast here:
Via Transistor FM https://gongaz.transistor.fm/

We also give a variety of mini shout outs along the way to Port Kembla businesses including Arthouse café, Red Point Artists, Ambrosia Eatery, The Vault and The Port Kembla beaches. If you’re keen on grabbing some small business ideas for the Port Kembla area, we certainly don’t disappoint with our interview with Renay including her guide to what would be excellent in the area.
Be kind it us, it’s our first episode! We have re-released the maiden episode with less backing music. However, the original is still listed as a bonus track. That way, you can choose between the two.

Made possible by Culture Bank Wollongong and hairy musicians. Made almost impossible by heatwaves and failing hard drives.
