From A Whisper To A Bang! is an unforgettable podcast series about wartime remembrance, an Australian prisoner of war in World War 2 Germany – and an emotional journey in ‘historical empathy’. Produced and presented by Megan Spencer and taking two years to make, it was commissioned by the Australian War Memorial.

Come with Megan as she walks in the shoes of her late grandfather, Corporal Harry Spencer, across land and sea, two world wars, three generations, four POW camps and umpteen compelling conversations.

How do we make sense of war and what it leaves behind? On the heels of the 2018 Centenary of the Armistice, may we remember well.
