We do more than teach, learn and research accounting - we live and breathe it. Check out our podcast and YouTube channel.

The Real Accountant

Academics from our department manage The Real Accountant YouTube channel, which covers how accounting matters in the real world, whether you're trying to make a buck or save the planet. The Real Accountant demystifies accounting, debunks misconceptions and demonstrates that accounting is not about rules or numbers but storytelling with data – a story that impacts everyone living in the real world.

Their first series covers the VCE accounting curriculum and explains key concepts in simple terms and using real-world case studies. Check out When Can Bad Debts Be Good? below:

TAPS is available on most major podcast providers. Episode 1 can be previewed below: Professor Gary Biddle discusses how accountants shape civilisations and the nature of accountability.
