The Bloom Podcast is a show created for young people, by young people in Boroondara.

In each 30-minute episode, host and program volunteer at Boroondara Youth Centre Nia McCatty interviews guests and delves into topics that are important to young people in our community. From homelessness and isolation to art and sport, the podcast shares stories and information from their perspective.

In its most recent episode, we meet George, a 20-year-old Boroondara local who first visited the Boroondara Youth Hub after running into difficult times. George credits the hub’s programs with helping him to get “back on track”, gain confidence, and build life skills and social networks. Nia and George talk about overcoming challenges and the importance of building a support network.

All episodes of the Bloom Podcast are available on our Boroondara Youth page on Soundcloud. Each episode is hosted, written, recorded and edited by young people at the Boroondara Youth Hub studio. You can keep your eye out for new episodes dropping throughout 2023.

If you are a young person and can see yourself behind the microphone, you can get in touch with Boroondara Youth on [email protected] or call (03) 9278 4608.
