We are very excited to be supporting Australian Design Radio (ADR) by funding an Australian tour in 2018.

ADR is a podcast based in Sydney, Australia that’s co-hosted by Matt Leach and Flyn Tracy. Matt and Flyn provide listeners with conversations and commentary on Australian Design.

In each episode, they invite an industry guest to tell their story, discuss their work, and debate the state of the creative industry. If you’re interested in Australian design then you should open your favourite podcast app and subscribe immediately.

A few of our favourite design conversations

We have a few favourites at Streamtime. Frankie Ratford from The Design Kids opens up about her passions, and Mike Tosetto from Never Sit Still goes very personal. There’s a rather surreal hour with founder of The Design Conference, Matt Haynes, and some great stories from across the globe, courtesy of Gabby Lord.

If you have time, you can also check out infamous husband and wife team Wade and Leta, the un-inimitable Chris Doyle and of course Streamtime’s Andy Wright.

Help us select future ADR guests

If you have any suggestions for other great Australian designers that Matt and Flyn should interview then please add them below. You can vote for the people already on the list or add your own. We’re keen to get out and about across the country, so would love to hear your ideas from all over!
