The Takeaway, the Advertiser's latest project
Behind the scenes, the team here has been hard at work on several projects for our loyal readers, the first being a social issues podcast The Takeaway.
Hosted by reporter Chris Pedler, The Takeaway features people from around central Victoria sharing their stories - the good, bad and inbetween - and how as a community we can help make things better.
To kick off, episode one features Bendigo LGBTQIA+ advocate and member John Richards joined Chris to chat about the Pride Festival, the importance of diverse icons in history and the evolution of the queer experience in Bendigo.
FYI, the V/Line is running some replacement coaches
Hey guys, Maddy here, just heard from this Friday to Monday (April 1 to April 4), some of the V/Line Bendigo trains will be replaced with coaches.
The replacements are due to the West Gate Tunnel project and it's unclear how many trains will be swapped out for coaches.
I won't lie to you guys I did get a few April Fool's vibes after I saw the tweet, however, considering the coaches will be running all weekend it's probably safe to say it's legit.
If you want to get the latest notifications about the Bendigo V/Line you can follow them on Twitter or refresh this nifty little blog.
