We are delighted to introduce our brand new podcast, Stories from the Crest.

Created by TV producer Claudia Nankervis (OM 2012), and emerging filmmaker Fraser Pemberton (OM 2011), Stories from the Crest shares the stories of Old Michaelians from across the history of the School.

In this interview style podcast, Fraser and Claudia explore the lives of Old Michaelians who share a common link through their school, but that have very different stories to tell. It is our hope that the thoughtful, witty and wise reflections of these Old Michaelians will provide our current and former students, staff, parents and members of the wider community with insights and perspectives to inspire them into the future.

Our first series features the stories of Winter Olympian Brodie Summers (OM 2011), the first female chief medical officer in the Commonwealth Department of Health and Family Services Judith Whitworth (OM 1961), Hollywood film director Patrick Hughes (OM 1996), and AFLW star Izzy Huntington (OM 2017), just to name a few.

Listen now:

Stories from the Crest is available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and most other popular podcast applications. New episodes will be published every fortnight during school term time for a limited series of episodes.
