Due to the ANZAC public holiday we had a day off from recording. We didn't want to leave you without an episode, so here is a taste of what what our wonderful Outspoken Plus subscribers get every week. 

It's time to get into your nostalgic feels.In 1999, Hi-5 burst onto the kids music scene. They were universally loved by kids and parents for their catchy pop music and wholesome vibes. 

They even began rivalling Australian kids’ supergroup The Wiggles. There was one small difference though which became a problem for the cast… the business model. 

In this series, we explore what was really happening behind the bubble gum illusion of Australia’s most popular kids entertainers… and what happened when they were no longer paid to maintain the facade.
