DIVA: 2021

DIVA magazine turns 30 this year and to celebrate we're covering those 30 glorious years, in 30 days throughout April.


Today it's the turn of the year 2021, only a teeny trip on the time train backwards.


Plus! Because it's Sunday, stay with us a little longer as Rachel Shelley reads one of our favourite DIVA articles from the last seven years.

Edited and produced by Rachel Shelley with additional editing, producing and knock-out audiogram awesomeness by Ella Gauci.
