  • Season 3

    When the COVID-19 pandemic hit humanity in late 2019 we suddenly realised that the systems that hold us together are fragile.

    In this season of MOD.CAST we have teamed up Radio Adelaide and UniSA Journalism students to explore the underlying themes of our online exhibition LIFE INTERRUPTED.

    A six part series, this season delves into our understanding of what is considered ‘essential’ and how we have had to find new ways to work, study and create, to be together while apart, take care of ourselves and others as well as find ways to build a similar but different world.

    MOD.CAST Season 3 was produced by UniSA journalism students Elane Bartemucci, Dim Papadopoulos and Nina Phillips. The Senior Producer for this series is Sarah Martin at Radio Adelaide Podcast Works.

    Music featured in this season is Allume, by South Australian artist Jzuk. Other sound elements featured within the series have been created by Tristan Louth-Robbins, whose works feature in the exhibit On Place as part of LIFE INTERRUPTED.



  • Season 2

    This time on MOD.Cast we have brought together three journalism students and teamed up with Radio Adelaide to create a podcast about the future. In this season explore their thoughts on how we will live in the not too distant future – everything from how we will build the cities of tomorrow to the foods we will eat and the jobs we’ll have.


    Do you want to know if we will really be genetically engineering our children and sending them to school in space? What about if you’ll be eating completely synthetic and emission-free hamburgers? Sitting alongside our SEVEN SIBLINGS FROM THE FUTURE, Season 2 draws on the research of local and national experts to answer these questions.


    MOD.Cast Season 2 was developed by and stars University of South Australia journalism students Anna Day, Meika Bottrill and Madina Jaffari. It was produced by Radio Adelaide’s Podcast Works program, with special thanks to Sarah Martin and Nikki Marcel, along with Research Marketing Coordinator, Elke Kleinig.


  • Season 1

    What happens when you bring together one of Australia’s newest and most innovative public museums, MOD. with a trio of final year journalism students?  MOD.Cast – a four-part podcast season that asks some of the big and controversial questions young people want to understand.


    The season explores reality in a virtual world, the blur between what is human and artificial intelligence, how the brain directs what we feel and how technology is changing what we know, understand and believe about our place in the world.


    MOD.Cast Season 1 includes interviews with some of the creators of MOD.IFY – the first exhibition at MOD. including researchers, artists and designers.


    MOD.Cast Season 1 was developed by and stars University of South Australia journalism students Chloe Byrne, Brad Irvine-Thomas and Morgan Burley. It was supported by Dr Heather Anderson, Journalist and UniSA Media Scholar, along with Research Marketing Coordinator, Elke Kleinig.
