About the podcast

What are the three books that are most important to you?

Do you have a secret survival habit?

And, if tomorrow is good for you, who will you bring to dinner as your fantasy date?


These are the questions that propel Tomorrow Could Be Good.


Each episode, host Jo Smythe interviews someone new. Her guests are change-makers and thinkers in different spheres: activists and lawyers, artists and parents.

The conversations go deep into the wilds of culture, social justice, the environment and tech. Going beyond book chat, the show illuminates the way we live now. It’s for listeners who love considered takes and surprising points of view.  

You’ll hear from remarkable people on topics from platonic co-parenting to cat-ear headbands, and from First Nations design thinking to the politics of Eurovision.
