Radio National is broadcast on over 260 frequencies around Australia, the largest single network in the country.
With 60 distinct programs each week, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's RN is unique. It has become known as the Ideas Network, where people can hear the latest in science, books and publishing, religion, social history, the arts and current affairs. Most programs are podcast, and many are transcribed. There's a growing archive of past programs in transcript and downloadable audio format, free on our website. All programs are thoroughly researched and lovingly presented by some of Australia's leading broadcasters.
RN's vision and purpose is to nurture the intellectual and cultural life of this country, and to be a vital element of the contemporary Australian conversation.
