VICE is launching three new podcast series this year

The first episode of Violent Times will explore the “hazardous world of graffiti”.

“When I heard that an 18 year graffiti artist had ruthlessly cut another passenger’s throat on a public tram in broad daylight, while citing the credentials of his graffiti crew, I looked into the scene.

“Melbourne is submerged in graffiti, and most people regard it as kitschy, but in recent years the art has transformed from being a way for the disenfranchised to express themselves to an archaic and ego-fuelled battleground over territory. For graffiti artists these days, brazen violence has become a certificate of authenticity,” Fazal said in a statement.

Violent Times will also feature Indigenous activist Vicki Roach.

Launching later in the year are two other series’: Extreme and The Anxiety Hour.

The Anxiety Hour will feature reality television host Osher Günsberg as VICE meets different people and explores mental health.

Extremes is a podcast series about people who have lived through a range intense experiences including a woman who survived a plane crash and spent eight days in a jungle.

Mumbrella’s Audioland conference on May 2 will explore the rich ecosystem of the audio industry including content creation, distribution, marketing, industry trends, new technology and more. Early bird tickets are available now.
