INsight, an Insurance News podcast

With the magazine, weekly bulletin, daily and breaking news, Insurance News has long been focused on reporting what’s happening within the insurance industry in Australia and New Zealand.

Our podcast service allows us to give a bit more information and commentary on the issues that are shaping the industry in a short, sharp weekly digest. In some cases we’ll also go into background on why we believe an issue is newsworthy and what else makes the story. We are also looking into in-depth feature podcasts around the bigger and more complicated issues.
