On Wednesday 24 January 2024 the State Library Victoria (SLV) will release a new six-part podcast series called The Chapters, which stars a motley crew of Victorian trailblazers and intriguing characters across the decades.

Produced in-house at the State Library’s own studio, The Chapters includes tales about a feminist hero, a bohemian artist admired by Salvador Dalí and a documentary photographer who captured impoverished social conditions in 1960s inner Melbourne.
