Mapping Sea Monsters
Play • 22 min

A warm welcome aboard. Hold tight as we plunge Into the Silentworld – a maritime-themed podcast centred on Australia and our neighbours in the Pacific, exploring our relationship with the sea through various topics.


We begin with a Halloween themed season focusing on the supernatural elements associated with the waters through time.


Renee and Kate explore what Halloween and this time of year in the southern hemisphere are like, before plunging in, to begin our exploration of the surreal with painted monsters on maps in our own museum collection and their meaning through time.


If you wish to find out more about these stories, head over to the show notes on our website. 


The theme music was performed and recorded by The Mutineers, Sydney's leading pirate band.
