A spying scandal and lots of coffee: how Guardian Australia launched 10 years ago Podcast | news


The story of how Guardian Australia launched in 2013 is one of strength, determination, a chance encounter, a spying scandal and a lot of coffee.

But since May 2013, this tiny news site has achieved what some thought was impossible. In this special edition of Full Story, bridie jabour The Guardian spoke to key players in Australia’s launch.

Also on this podcast are Katharine Winer, Lenore Taylor, Katharine Murphy, Alan Rusbridger, Lee Glendinning, David Marr, Christian Bennett, Graeme Wood, Malcolm Turnbull, Luke Pearson, Lorena Allam, Melissa Davey, Ben Doherty, Mark Scott, Cassandra Goldie, Michael Are included. Safdie and Luke Henriques-Gomes.
