The Penny Mint Podcast

Mia Boonen, Ella Crowley and Jake Stevens are the co-founders of The Penny Mint, a collective for young writers in Melbourne. Each month, they will gather around a microphone to discuss all things writing and the world around them. The Penny Mint acknowledges the land on which we work, perform and reside: on Boonwurrung, Woiwurrung and Wathaurung Country. We extend our deepest gratitude to the elders and ancestors who have told their stories and sung their songs on this land for more than 60,000 years. We acknowledge that this land was never ceded, and no treaty has ever been reached. This always was, always will be Aboriginal land.


episode 1: Beginnings - "What is the plural of Bigfoot?"

How do you begin to write? What got us into writing in the first place? And what even is the plural of Bigfoot anyway? Mia, Ella and Jake are in a kitchen, and they have questions in this podcast, all about beginnings.
Our intro music was composed by Mia Boonen. You can find out more about her other work in the dramatic arts at the Dramawerkz website. Jake Stevens can be found on the radio for two weeks starting January 6; find out more on his Facebook page.
