New ABC podcast explores life in face of judgement

Hosted by Hack’s Sarah McVeigh, the new ABC podcast How Do You Sleep At Night? is all about people who face judgement for the things they do, big or small.

In this podcast, you’ll meet a big tobacco lobbyist, a pokies billionaire, abortion clinic protesters, a stock market manipulator, a killer and big game hunters.

“Honestly I struggled to see how someone could justify killing a giraffe!” says McVeigh.

“But in this series, I wanted to test the limits of my empathy.

“Whether or not you agree with the actions of the people you’ll meet, I hope you enjoy seeing the world from someone else’s perspective!”

“This series is utterly compelling in the way it makes the listener view the world through a different prism from their own. The characters you’ll meet certainly make you question not only their morals but your own,” says Kellie Riordan, Manager of ABC Audio Studios.

Hear all episodes of How Do You Sleep At Night on the new ABC Listen app which was launched today (see our other report) from Wednesday 13 September, or weekly wherever you get your podcasts.

Sarah McVeigh hosts and produces How Do You Sleep At Night? She has been a reporter on Triple J’s youth current affairs show Hack for the past four years. Prior to that she was a producer on Richard Glover’s Drive at 702 ABC Sydney.
