Just to Be Clear by QUT Glass
This is Glass’ very own podcast where we talk about everything QUT related, from interviews with alums to interesting things happening on campus. If there’s something that you think students need know about or that we should talk about on Just To Be Clear, let us know! The best place to start would be our recent two-part interview episode with Heartbreak High actor Thomas Weatherall, who tells Glass all about his experience at QUT and his new show ‘Blue’. 
Deviant Women by Lipp Media 
Lauren and Alicia, are two academics from Adelaide, and have four stunning seasons of episodes dedicated to different ‘deviant’ women from history, literature, contemporaneity, and mythology. The two women discuss the lives and the impacts of some of history’s most interesting women, and what exactly makes them ‘deviants’.

Sounds Like A Cult by Amanda Montell & Isa Medina 
Is the Royal Family a cult? Is the CIA? Amanda Montell (the author of Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism) and Isa Medina (comedian, writer and actor) investigate the modern day ‘cults’ that many of us are apart of. Academia, Burning Man and Disney Adults are just a few of the many ‘cults’ that the two delve into. 
Goes Without Saying by Sephy and Wing

Decoder Ring by Slate Podcasts

The Left Right Game by QCODE
This is an immersive, science fiction story about a young journalist investigating a group of paranormal explorers and their latest obsession; the Left Right Game. This surround-sound podcast is best listened to alone and at night, so that you can’t tell whether every bump, whisper, and screech is real or not. QCODE strongly advises that you do not listen to this story when driving, which should tell you a thing or two about how real it sounds. Listen at your own risk. 
You’re Wrong About by Sarah Marshall 
From Chris McCandless to Lesbian Seagulls, Sarah Marshall is here to tell you the cold hard facts about some of society’s most misunderstood people, events and phenomenons from history and culture.
