Meet Jetsonville - Tasmania's most anonymous town

If you've ever driven along the road between Bridport and Scottsdale in the north east of the state, you would have unknowingly passed through arguably the best named town in Tasmania, Jetsonville.

Tas Talks listener Gail, a resident of Jetsonville called in to Tasmania Talks as part of Free Range Friday, leaving Brian Carlton appalled with the lack of signage in the area, describing it as "one of the great state tragedies".

Determined to put Jetsonville on the map, Brian talks about the town's potential, and speaks to some possible descendants of the town's eponym.
