About Love and Luck
Love and Luck is Australia’s first LGBT audio drama podcast. It’s a sweet queer love story with a touch of magic, told via voicemails.
The story is about people who fall in love, learn they have magic powers, and use those powers to support and protect their community. The good guys win, no one dies, and queer people of all types are all loved and valued.
Made for people who like healthy relationships and happy endings, Love and Luck’s goal is to bring a few minutes of warmth and happiness to listeners once a week.
Set in Melbourne, Australia in the present day, the world of Love and Luck is populated with many real life queer Melbourne people, events and places alongside its fictional characters.
Love and Luck has been running since September 2017. Its first season had over 50,000 downloads in more than 12 countries by the finale, and hit 100,000 downloads only a few episodes into season two. Since then, its audience has continued to grow.
Love and Luck was a finalist in the 2018 Australian Podcast Awards, in the Storytelling category.
Love and Luck is an all-queer all-Melbourne production. It is as much a community project as a show, and is recorded at the Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre, in Carlton, Melbourne

Love and Luck was conceptualized by, written by, edited by and coproduced by Erin Kyan - who also voices one of the main characters.
A queer, disabled, trans man who lives in St Kilda (where the bulk of the podcast is set), Erin lives with his partner and coproducer Lee, and their two cats, Tribble and Boop.
Erin began writing Love and Luck for stress relief and as a power fantasy. In a world in which queer people are not generally valued by society, he wanted a story where queer love is cherished, queer people are appreciated and live happily, and homophobic and transphobic people are either rehabilitated or punished.
Once the first draft was written, Erin decided to produce Love and Luck as a podcast. He wanted to learn more about podcasting as a medium, and tends to enjoy learning by doing, so jumping straight into a project felt right for him. He also found that as he discussed the project with friends, many people were desperate for more kind and happy queer media. The support for the project has been unexpected and very much appreciated.
