Podshape works with Orange Sky to break down the stereotypes of homelessness

Press Release · via Podshape ·

Podshape, one of Australia’s biggest independent podcast creation companies proudly announces its latest venture in partnership with Orange Sky, the ground-breaking Australian non-profit organization. Together, they are launching an inspiring new podcast series titled The F Word, where 'F’ stands for 'Friends,' to illuminate the transformative power of friendship among the homeless community.

“The F Word” brings listeners into the heart of conversations that occur around Orange Sky’s mobile laundry and shower services. Each episode features personal stories from individuals who have experienced homelessness, alongside the volunteers who serve them, showcasing how friendship can lead to change and healing.

“Storytelling has the power to connect and heal.” said Jay Walkerden Co- founder of Podshape. In a first in the podcasting landscape in Australia, these stories were recorded in parks, cars, and other places that our friends on the street call home, allowing for a truly intimate exploration of moments filled with loss, friendship, and resilience.
