Thursday Drive

Thursdays 4PM

Presented by Gemma Purves.

Gemma has been with Eastside since 2014 since returning to Australia after a long stint working in financial media in London.  She’s supported on Thursday Drive by producer/presenter Nick Terry and panelist Will Jennings.

They are focused on bringing you the latest on Sydney’s arts and music scene, as well as local issues and politics that impact our community. There are also occasional in-depth interviews with the individuals and organisations that make our neighbourhood special.

Special attention is paid to inclusive events and policy– having spent time as a carer Gemma is aware that inclusive events and venues can improve life not just for those with disabilities but their friends and families also.
