PODCAST – Episode two of the brand new investigative history podcast ‘History Lab‘ is out now! In the middle of a mining town in outback Australia, over 400 kilometres from the closest ocean, stands a monument dedicated to the memory of the Titanic.

On the surface the story of how Broken Hill’s Titanic Memorial can be seen as a simple tale of memory and humanity, one community expressing their sympathy for and solidarity with another. But upon closer inspection, Ninah and Tamson encounter the politics of memory and discover that a story about trying to remember reveals much about what we choose to forget.

History Lab is a collaboration between the Australian Centre for Public History at the University of Technology Sydney and 2SER 107.3
