What if the Murray River could sing? Well, it turns out that it can.
In this special edition of The Yarn, a co-production with ABC Radio National, outgoing 2021 Citizen graduate cadet Jordyn Beazley reports on what the river song tells about the history and health of this vital waterway, its ecology, and its troubled future.
This audio feature was developed for Radio National’s Science Friction program, where it was originally produced and presented by Natasha Mitchell. It was supported by a fellowship grant awarded by the Science Journalists Association of Australia.
The Yarn is produced at the Centre for Advancing Journalism, at the University of Melbourne.
