Lust, Love, Loss Conversations: Julia & Jai

with Shrine of Remembrance

Produced by renowned broadcaster Megan Spencer for The Shrine of Remembrance, Lust Love Loss Conversations is a three-part podcast series that delves deep into stories of Australian wartime relationships. This episode follows the story of my husband and I, who despite being together for nine years at the time of this recording spent three and a half living in the same place. I share with Megan the trials and tribulations of life as a contemporary defence partner and explains how we kept our relationship going despite the distance while helping others do the same.
