History Lab and the New York Festivals Radio Awards

Forty Years of 2SER

While it’s always an honour to be nominated for an award, it’s even sweeter to win one (or two or three). Here Tamson Pietsch, the Director of the Centre for Public History at UTS, talks about the Centre’s 2SER podcast series and shows GLAMCity! and History Lab (with the later winning a number of gongs at the New York Festivals Radio Awards in 2019).
