The Adelaide Show Podcast putting South Australian passion on centre stage
South Australian Storytellers, John Schumann and Uncle Ken Jones, on The Adelaide Show 396 with Steve Davis

396 – South Australian Storytellers

In this special episode of The Adelaide Show, we celebrate NAIDOC Week by featuring two prominent South Australian storytellers, Uncle Ken Jones and John Schumann. We’re thrilled to bring you a unique blend of conversation and music. Uncle Ken Jones from the Boandik community is here to talk about his deep connection to country and his incredible life stories, all from the heart of the Limestone Coast. And we’ve got John Schumann, whose songs capture the Aussie spirit in ways that stick with you long after the music stops. Expect to hear a few tunes throughout our chat, each telling a story that ties back to South Australia and South Australians. There is no SA Drink Of The Week this week. And we have made John’s interview an extended edition of the Musical Pilgrimage. You can navigate episodes using chapter markers in your podcast app. Not a fan of one

We have a great community here in South Australia. While it’s not perfect, it has sustained many people to build connections and follow passions in ways have enabled our state to punch above its weight on the world stage. 

But as Dr Jane Goodall said back in episode 42, the best way to make our world a better place is to start with the square metre you’re standing on, and build from there.
