Channel Seven has today launched THE HOME AND AWAY PODCAST, an official “access all areas” podcast hosted by former cast member Jason Smith .

THE HOME AND AWAY PODCAST is the ideal companion for both long-time fans and newcomers, offering a deep dive into the world of Summer Bay by the people who work on and off screen.  

Each week, Jason (Robbie Hunter, 2003-2006) and his guests will discuss the storylines, characters and history of the iconic Australian series, as well as offering unparalleled, behind-the-scenes insight into the making of the show.

The premiere episode explores the importance of ‘Family’ in Summer Bay and features Channel Seven’s Head of Drama and Home and Away Executive Producer, Julie McGauran, and Series Script Executive, Louise Bowes.

Episode 2 continues the ‘Family’ theme with special guests Georgie Parker and Lukas Radovich, who play Roo Stewart and Ryder Jackson, daughter and grandson of Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher).

“I loved sitting down with Jason and exploring the dynamics of the ever-changing Stewart household with Lukas,” said Georgie. “It’s also nice to have a conversation rather than a straight up interview; going off track can lead to a lot of fun. I think our audience will love this podcast series.”

On the launch of the podcast, Julie McGauran said;

“We wanted to extend the Home and Away experience for our audience. By including members of the production team and cast, we’re giving listeners different perspectives about how we make the show and tell stories. And Jason’s insight, from working both in front of and behind the camera, has made for some very interesting and entertaining conversations with guests.”

THE HOME AND AWAY PODCAST is a Seven Studios Production. It is available now through Acast or your preferred podcast platform.
