This is the final episode of Season One of From the Embers, a nine-part series sharing first-hand accounts from Australia’s devastating summer of fire.  Guests:  Natalie O’Connell Leonie Pendergast Ann Peterson Dennis and Jill Riethmiller Graeme Symons Credits: Producer: Anne Wall Additional assistance Alice Ansara and Lisa Burns Executive Producer and Sound Design: Sarah Mashman Production Management Team: Vicky Rouse and Abe Killian Engineering: Tegan Nichols Script Consultation: Zoe Ferguson Theme: Oliver Beard This podcast has been brought to you by the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia, and is supported by The Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas and The Paul Ramsay Foundation   See for privacy information.
