Nipuni Wijewickrema is a person who invites strong (positive) adjectives. She is high energy, constantly on the go, and street smart, with an almost unwavering optimism.

Love, Canberra - Episode 18 - The gift

Andrew always wanted to have children. And now he has James. The one catch: James belongs to his mothers, Natasha and Katrina. Here, Andrew talks about how life hasn't quite gone as planned, and the joys of his relationship with James. NOTE: Some parts of the episode will sound a bit strange. At the request of Andrew after we recorded our conversation, I replaced the names of some of the people referenced.

What happens after dark at Canberra's largest adult store? Who might you find at such a place? I shadowed Adam & Eve employee Chandra for the last three and a half hours of her shift one Sunday night to find out. I learn not only answers to these questions, but about the change that is happening across the adult toy industry more broadly. With thanks also to fellow A&E employee Kat, who appears in this episode. If you like what you hear, please leave me a review on Apple Podcasts to help...

Love, Canberra - Episode 14 - Room

George is a regular 27 year old guy in all but one aspect. For almost ten years, he was, as the Japanese call it, a Hikikomori. He didn't go to school. He didn't interact with people outside of his home. He stayed in his room and played video games. This is George today.
