Podcast: Walking in Two Worlds: The WW1 Story of Ngarridjeri ANZACs Cyril & Rufus Rigney

The Virtual War Memorial is proud to present a new podcast production from Megan Spencer.

Weaving together different voices, this 7-part podcast, Walking In Two Worlds powerfully explores the stories of the teenage Rigney brothers, Cyril and Rufus. We visit their homelands and hear from their Ngarrindjeri relatives firsthand to learn about the brothers’ lives and wartime service. Presented and produced by Australian remembrance podcast maker Megan Spencer. 


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander listeners are advised that this podcast contains the voices of and references to people who have passed away. It also contains concepts related to war, and some depictions of war and its aftermath.

Production of this podcast has been made possible through a grant from the South Australian Department for Education.
