Order: This Place Has a Past
Across three episodes, we’re bringing you a special audio edition of Notes, the Wheeler Centre’s digital publishing series. For this edition, participants in our 2020 podcast development programme, Signal Boost have created audio stories around the theme 'Order'.
It’s a word that brings to mind structure, organisation, command or subjugation. Think: the natural order, alphabetical order, out of order. It’s a title, descriptor, an alternative. A holy order, a tall order, or law and order? It can be a direction, or a request. Get your house in order. Take your marching orders.
In this episode, Maddi Miller delves into the hidden stratigraphy of Melbourne.
