Please Explain podcast: Explaining explainers

The Herald and The Age have released an anthology of explainer articles named What’s it Like to be Chased by a Cassowary? Fascinating answers to perplexing questions.

The 300-page book is filled with deep dives into an array of topics from sport and science to the origins of the word “mate” and why cicadas sing at dusk. It's penned by award-winning journalists such as Tony Wright, Liam Mannix and Sherryn Groch.

In this episode, national editor Tory Maguire and explainer editor Felicity Lewis give a sneak peak into what to expect from the new book and dissect how explainers differ from regular articles.
