Event description

“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 is an unmissable live podcast on everything Don Dunstan!

Dunstan 101 brings 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 will be bringing 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’.

Join us for this myth-busting, interactive session and have all your curiosities about Don answered.

Even better - pizza and soft drinks will be included!

Might contain mild coarse language
