In 2008 I was invited to contribute a few stories to the community radio show, Diffusion.
Diffusion is recorded in the studios of radio station 2SER (Sydney Educational Radio) and is broadcast through about 17 community radio stations throughout Australia. It also broadcasts internationally via podcasting. Diffusion (formerly "Discovery") has been running for over 10 years.
On this page you can browse each of these segments and follow the links to text transcripts or audio downloads.
Starting with a look at the 2007 Singleton thylacoleo sighting, this segment also considers the evidence for Australian big cats.
In his 2000 publication, Dr Robert Paddle revealed early Australian documentation of living thylacines in South Australia and New South Wales. Follow the evidence and consider a 1973 film captured in South Australia by Liz and Gary Doyle.
A brief look at some wallabies that have beaten the odds and survived extinction. This episode includes: the bridled nailtail wallaby; the southern sub-group of the brush-tailed rock wallaby; the parma wallaby; Gilbert's potoroo; and the Eastern quoll on mainland Australia (with a call to listeners to contribute sightings reports).
