Play the introduction to this podcast series:
One of the great ways to learn about history is to hear the stories of those who lived it. So now, with more than 50 years behind us, we thought it was time to bring some of those stories to life and share them with the world.

Inspired by Yarra is a podcast series of conversations with our Yarra Old Grammarians (YOGs) who recall funny, compelling, informative and inspiring stories. Hosted by our School Chaplain Paul Joy, guests share some of their fondest memories of their time at Yarra and how that has helped establish their lives, their families and their careers to this day.

We’re excited to be launching the Inspired By Yarra podcast on Friday 31 August, 2018. So please look it up and tune in, like it, leave a rating and review, and share it with others. The more activity we have in the first few days helps draw attention to it so more people can find us. A new episode will be available at 7am every Tuesday so hit SUBSCRIBE in your podcast player to ensure you don’t miss an episode.

If you have any suggestions for someone you think would be a great guest on an upcoming episode, please drop us a line at

Each of us have been inspired by Yarra in some way. We now have a way to listen to those uplifting stories first hand on the Inspired by Yarra podcast. Don’t miss it!
