Lea Redfern

Lea Redfern has been making radio since the early 1990s when she was seduced by the intimacy, independence, and creative possibilities allowed by the medium.

After receiving first class honours in communications, at the University of Technology, Sydney, Redfern won a Cross-Media Production Traineeship at the ABC, in television, online, and in radio. Working in television strengthened her passion for radio, and Redfern has produced on Radio Eye and The Night Air since 2000. Her documentaries have been broadcast internationally and in 2003 she won the Australian Human Rights Award for Radio.


When her husband brings two puppies home, producer Lea Redfern becomes completely immersed in the world of canines. Now dog culture pervades her every waking moment, from commanding her social life to steering her personal politics.
