AUSPICIOUS PLASTIC is a podcast about ‘precious objects’ that bring meaning to our lives – and the stories behind them.
Presented and produced by broadcaster Megan Spencer, guests discuss the things in their lives that are precious to them, and the stories behind them – often those made of plastic and/or of the Tupperware variety!
“When using my Mum’s old Tupperware containers after she passed away, I discovered how such simple ‘pieces of plastic’ could hold so much meaning – and emotion. I wondered how a gnarly old canister could help someone to grieve, and decided to investigate. Through Auspicious Plastic I’m discovering a plethora of stories about us: people, community, food, family, friendship, empowerment and more. Instead of being worthless containers bound for landfill, they become containers of fascinating inter-generational stories.” – MS
