ABC South West WA Drive presenter Andrew Collins spoke with our Communications Manager Sinead Burke today about the association’s wonderful new podcast The Unpaid Professionals.

Andrew played a short excerpt from one episode featuring Fred and Judy Talbot from the Roelands/Olive Hill Combined Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade in which Fred talks about how bushfire used to be tackled and Sinead shares some of the insights she has already had after interviewing a number of our incredible members for the podcast.
