With more than 50 hours of original Sydney Opera House available to the 18 million passengers who travel Etihad Airways worldwide each year, these passengers will have something to entertain themselves with during flights.
Two of the Sydney Opera House’s most popular podcasts, This Kid Life and It’s A Long Story, are now available on all Etihad Airways’ E-BOX inflight entertainment programming. It’s A Long Story unpacks the influences and ‘big’ moments that formed some of the Opera House’s most acclaimed and influential guests. Hosted by award-winning international affairs journalist and ABC TV Foreign Correspondent’s Hamish Macdonald, the first two seasons feature interviews recorded at last year’s Festival of Dangerous Ideas and BINGEFEST. Guests include Henry Rollins, Lionel Shriver, Gretel Killeen, Jad Abumrad (Radiolab) and Julie Snyder (Serial, S-Town).
Putting kids front and centre – and behind the microphone – This Kid Life is made for children aged eight to thirteen and features young people discussing life, the environment, education, creativity, social media and more. Hosted by Australian radio maker Jennifer Macey, the series delves into what matters most to kids, how they see the world and how the future looks to them.
Both It’s A Long Story and This Kid Life podcasts are now available on all flights featuring Etihad Airways’ inflight entertainment system.
