A spy scandal and lots of coffee: how Guardian Australia got started 10 years ago | podcasting | News

The story of Guardian Australia’s launch in 2013 is one of strength, determination, a chance encounter, a spy scandal and lots of coffee. At a time when Julia Gillard was Prime Minister, newspapers were laying off thousands of staff and Gina Rinehart was vying for control of Fairfax, the Guardian came at a difficult time for public interest journalism. But since May 2013, the once-tiny news site has achieved what some thought was impossible. In this special edition of Full Story, Bridie Jabour is aimed at key players in the launch of Guardian Australia.

This podcast also features Katharine Viner, 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 Safi and Luc Henriques-Gomes.
