This new season kicks off with an unforgettable 30th birthday trip to Thailand. The characters journey through a story touching on: work, mental health, reproductive choice and betrayal. Relationships will be tested and emotions will run high as this season leans into the drama.

The first season of Private Affairs was crowned Podcast of the Year and Best Fiction Podcast at the 2021 Australian Podcast Awards. Christine “Kix” Mwaturura, who was the 2022 Jesse Cox Audio Fellow, is the show’s creator, writer, director and producer. She said, “Making season 2 challenged me to go deeper as an artist and a producer. I hope people will listen with an open heart and enjoy it.”
