State seniors peak body COTA Queensland has launched a weekly podcast focusing on topical issues affecting older Australians.

Radio COTA is hosted by media veteran Andy Neil and can be accessed through any mobile device or computer.

The launch episode, which aired on Wednesday, explored age-friendly cities and communities with Dr Kathleen Brasher, a researcher and consultant in the area.

“Older people are becoming much more tech savvy and our podcasts will be a great way to be informed whilst on the go,” said COTA Queensland chief executive Mark Tucker-Evans.

Upcoming podcasts will provide older Queenslanders with news and information in the lead up to Queensland Seniors Week and the International Federation on Ageing 13th Global Conference to be held in Brisbane in June.
