About

Jennifer Macey

I’m a journalist, podcast producer and radio documentary maker. My radio work has aired on DW Radio, ABC Radio, Pacifica Radio and KCRW.

Currently I am producing The Australia Institute's podcast "Follow the Money", "This Kid Life" a podcast for kids for the Sydney Opera House, "The Colour Cycle" a podcast exploring cultural diversity in the Australian arts sector and an oral history podcast in the Illawarra called "The Bowerbirds".

I've covered UN Climate Change conferences, the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, reported from Indonesia on the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami, talked to the Archbishop of Krakow about Poland joining the EU, met members of Cologne's Nazi resistance movement, interviewed elephants and their keepers and heard extraordinary tales from ordinary people.

My work won the judges pick at the Audiocraft short feature challenge and 3rd prize in the KCRW's 24-hour Radio Race 2016. I am an alumni of Varuna the National Writers House.

I love listening to podcasts.
