“Heaps good history!”

Did you know that former South Australian Premier Don Dunstan passed Indigenous land reforms and anti-discrimination legislation? Or that during his premiership, he established the South Australian Film Corporation and the Jam Factory?

This year we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Don Dunstan Foundation’s establishment and commemorate 20 years since Don’s passing. As part of the Anniversary, Dunstan 101 was an unmissable live podcast on everything Don Dunstan!

Dunstan 101 brought together local heroes and podcasters AdeLOL in conjunction with respected history professor Dr Paul Sendziuk, to remember the progressive South Australian Premier who moulded Adelaide into the wonderful vibrant city that we know today.

After many sold out live podcasts at both the 2018 and 2019 Adelaide Fringe, AdeLOL brought their witty and modern take on the Dunstan Era to the table. Buddies Tom and Dan won South Australian Emerging Historians of the Year in 2018 having started podcasting in 2017, and are known for their light-hearted and humorous insights into South Australian history.

Dr. Paul Sendziuk is an Associate Professor in the Department of History at the University of Adelaide. His latest book, A History of South Australia, includes a chapter titled ‘The Dunstan Decade, 1965-79’.

This was a myth-busting, interactive session that had all curiosities about Don answered.

Even better – pizza and soft drinks was included!

Contained mild coarse language
