#19 Slow Adventures with Caroline Clements and Dillon Seitchik-Reardon

We've all day-dreamed about throwing in the towel and heading out on adventure, but what happens if you actually followed that instinct? Caroline Clements and Dillon Seitchik-Reardon are creatives in Melbourne who did just that - they sold their possessions, moved out of their home, and left in an old four wheel drive with a single goal: to discover Australia’s best swimming spot. With the holiday season upon us, it’s not always possible to take a year off to travel the world - or...

SPECIAL: We need to talk about men (Sam Wood, Damon Gameau, Dr. Monty Badami & Sam Gledhill)

I’m going to interrupt business as usual broadcasting here because it’s November... and we need to talk. We need to talk about men. This episode is inspired by Movember, which uses this month to talk about improving the quality of life for men and raising funds to do something about it. The reason for this conversation is pretty clear when we see the numbers: And lastly - 70% of men say their friends can rely on them for support, but only 48% say that they rely on their friends. In other...

#15 How to deepen your relationships with Tim Dean

Knowing how to get the most out of the people we meet, live with and love is so important to living a meaningful life. But too often we struggle to communicate our true selves. We fail to connect deeply or have conversations that allow us to reveal our vulnerability and naturally relate to others. Instead, our chitchat can feel like it’s in a rut - mundane, dull and filled with innocuous nonsense about events, plans or the weather. According to Tim Dean, the ability to be sociable and to...

#10 Low Tox Living with Alexx Stuart

Alexx Stuart is a health activist and change agent. She coined the term 'low tox' many years ago after seeing a lack of transparency in our food system, personal care and cleaning products. At the time the decision seemed to be filled with black and white binary distinctions of 'no tox' and 'zero chemical' lifestyles that felt unrealistic for her to integrate into daily life. Instead, she founded the blog Low Tox Life and began to research simple steps that she could take to reduce the...


#09 The Farm Community with Emma and Tom Lane

‘Grow, feed, educate’ is Emma and Tom Lane’s motto for their beloved business, The Farm in Byron Bay. The ethos underpins all they do, and stems from their deep belief that firsthand experience of seeing how food is grown and produced makes eating so much more pleasurable - and equips us to make better food decisions for our health and the health of our planet. The family lived on Sydney’s Darling Harbour, where Tom led his family’s business, the fashion label Oroton, and Emma worked in...

#06 Finding Home Within with Maud Léger

Ask yourself this question: What does my inner and outer self look and feel like at this time in my life? Your outer self being the part of you that you show to the outside world. Your inner self is a private world of sensations, feelings, memories and thoughts. It’s private and it’s precious and it’s ours alone. Just close your eyes and meditate on it for a moment. Now ask yourself this. Does anybody else truly get to know my inner world? Maud Léger spent many years hiding her inner...


#05 Becoming Our Best Selves with Lola Berry

My next guest needs little introduction. Lola Berry is a nutritionist, a yoga teacher and is the author of ten best-selling books. Her name is synonymous with her happy-go-lucky persona and her vivaciousness for life, but what she rarely reveals is the criticism that she receives behind the scenes. As a well-known personality, Lola has faced a barrage of unkind criticism judging the way she looks, what she wears, her weight, and her very being. I actually met Lola nearly ten years ago when...


#04 Everyday Alchemy with Pia Bijkerk

Pia believes that we have the opportunity to flourish as human beings when we tune into our inner child and our deeper yearnings, rather than being guided solely by our thoughts. Through her work and her mentoring...

He’s a dynamic voice within the movement away from single use plastics, and a refreshingly optimistic presence within the environmental movement. As a keen surfer, Tim has closely watched the evolution of the ocean and its...


#02 The Permaculture Revolution with David Holmgren

In many homes worldwide, David Holmgren is a beloved name. As the co-creator of the global permaculture movement, his work has touched millions of lives, and can be seen etched into the gardens of inner city projects to community co-operatives to large-scale farms. The term permaculture was created back in the mid-1970s by David and university professor Bill Mollison, and is a combination of the terms ‘permanent’ and ‘agriculture’ to create a symbolic union. Its 12 principles are based...
