The First Time podcast is a podcast about the first time you publish a book. Co-hosted by Melbourne writers Kate Mildenhall (Skylarking, The Mother Fault) and Katherine Collette ( The Helpline), the podcast is now in its third season, having featured more than 80 Australian authors talking about their writing careers and followed Katherine and Kate through the highs and lows of their own first, and second, publishing experiences. With over 70 episodes and 65k listens, the podcast has grown a loyal gang of first time listeners, supporting Australian authors and our industry.

Kate and Katherine have been chasing Trent Dalton for a couple of seasons now and are delighted that Kate finally gets to ask him all the tricky questions about his writing life, process, and new book All Our Shimmering Skies in this special live recording for the ABA.
