Thanks for dropping by the Human/Ordinary podcast.

This podcast is an independent production by Sam Loy and features non-fiction stories exploring what it means to be human. Human/Ordinary is inspired by the belief that all people are equal in our normalcy and that each of us have extraordinary stories to tell. 

Stories from the podcast have been heard on Strangers from Radiotopia, 3RRR in Melbourne and All The Best on FBi Radio in Sydney.

Human/Ordinary is a proud member of the Planet Broadcasting Network. Please check out all my "great mates" and their podcasts on the network.

Season One was all about me finding my feet and learning how to do one of these podcasts. There's political stories, a story about football, and a short series on meat-eating.

Season Two was devoted to the Headstone Series, six stories exploring how we die and how we live with our mortality.

Season Three was a grab-bag of different things that interested me. There’s a story of renewal from an archaeologist, tales from suburban wrestling, a tour of my neighbourhood and the people in it, and a story all about dickheads. 

Season Four will kick off in late April. I’m pretty excited to announce that I’ll be working with three other producers to bring you more stories, more often. Stay tuned for more info.

I am available for freelance work in production, voiceover, or writing. 

You can follow me on Twitter or Facebook to be kept up to date with episode release dates.
