Update: November 2022

It has been a great year and we have released another 30 episodes of The Flying Doctor Podcast – bringing us to a total of 60 real life stories from patients, family members and RFDS staff.

There has been some wonderful feedback from listeners and those we have interviewed. Word of mouth is always the best promotion for a podcast – so if you enjoy this podcast, or a specific story, please share with family and friends.

We are going to take a little break to work on some other key projects for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, but make sure you follow this podcast so that you are informed when our next series launches in early 2023 – that way you will get a notification as soon as the next new episode drops.

In the meanwhile, if you haven’t already done so – catch up on our extensive back-series as there are some ripper yarns, incredibly brave and strong people, and many-a-story that are so typically Aussie in terms of resilience, innovation in times of crisis, and of course humour.

If you haven’t already -- Please do join our Facebook Group called the Flying Doctor Podcast Community and join in the conversation – and you can also send feedback, questions or comments through to the podcast host, Lana Mitchell, at
