How Ya Goin With Jason Owen
Life on the Land
For Season 2: Life on the Land I wanted to do something a little different. No-one’s done it tougher than people in regional communities this year. These folks have had everything thrown at them – drought, bushfires, economic woes and COVID-19 challenges.
So I wanted to chat to farmers and community members who do so much for our nation. I wanted to hear their ups and downs and share their amazing stories of resilience. These people are the real heros and I’m sure you’ll love hearing their heartfelt stories just as much as I have!

Rob Sinnamon (cattle station manager), Maddy Thomas (country student and singer on The Voice), Sonya and Angus Dowling (organic poultry farmers), Craig Field (whiskey distiller), Cilla Pershouse (farmer and entertainer), Sally Everett (football club rep)
