Sonshine FM launching not one, but two new podcasts

98Five Sonshine FM in Perth has launched two new and uniquely different podcasts, What’s Up Doc? And Sandgropers, with Executive Producer and announcer at Sonshine, Leah Tindale saying, “Bespoke podcasts by community radio and media companies are long overdue.”

What’s Up Doc? is health-focused. Hosted by Dr Stuart Arbuckle, a passionate Scottish general practitioner and with Leah Tindale, Dr Stuart will provide a whole-family approach to caring for your health.

About Sandgropers, Tindale says, “I believe everyone has a story. Sandgropers, in particular, was created to find the gold thread that lives within all of us and share that gold with a broader audience. Sandgropers dives deep into the diverse and vibrant community of Western Australia. Each episode will take you on a journey through the life of an ordinary resident, from artists to entrepreneurs, athletes to activists.” 

Sandgropers and What’s Up Doc? are available from May 24.
