The Reverend Amanda Hay

4/28/2020
Faith, COVID-19, connection, finding your own path...and board games. I'm delighted to welcome Rev Amanda Hay onto the podcast. Amanda is the vibrant and caring minister for the Uniting Church in Berowra. Each time I pop to the shop and back I pass the Uniting Church. In these extraordinary times I was curious to learn how a leader of a faith community overcomes the barriers isolation throws in our way and continues to connect with and support her congregation. And we have an awesome chat...

[Episode 1] From The Dark

3/30/2020
In May 1897 Bram Stoker's "Dracula" was published, giving birth to one of the most terrifying Gothic terrors we've ever known. But who was Bram Stoker and what inner struggle led to the creation of this novel that resonates as strongly today as it did upon release more than 120 years ago?

[COMING SOON] From the Dark: Bram Stoker's Dracula

3/29/2020
Victorian London, 1895 - the zenith of the British Empire. Their supreme reign casts a long shadow all around the world. Yet at the height of it’s power fear was rife. Fear of the other, the unknown, of contagion, of what may emerge from the dark places in the world the Empire has shone its glorious light upon. And into this world enter Abraham ‘Bram’ Stoker, business manager for the Lyceum Theatre. A competent man. A trust-worthy man. A man more at home behind the scenes than sharing the...

It's Been a While

3/27/2020
I truly believe all we have is time. Time and each other. I think I took for granted how easy it was to connect with people and not matter how challenging these times are I don't want to stop trying to connect. So if you're feeling the same way, stay tuned. What I Don't Talk About @ BBQs is coming back...soon. Be well. Take care, Ken

Part 2: Creative Partnerships

10/9/2019
For me, I'm never more excited or fulfilled then when I am collaborating with others in a joint venture. Whether it's playing football, performing in a band or even co-facilitating workshops with a colleague, anything I do on my own doesn't come close to the thrill and satisfaction I get from connecting with other people. My conversation with writer, therapist and translator, Jorge Montero Calderon and previous guest, poet and writer Elisa Horan, transcends timezones and borders, with Jorge...

Elisabeth Horan

9/13/2019
My guest today is poet, Eli Horan. She has an amazing way of taking her fears, pain and struggles and transforms them into works of powerful creativity. Her writing is about overcoming rage, anger, shame and self-pity. There's a very vulnerable beauty in her poems. I'm struck by the strength she gains from putting her fragility on the page. Eli's writing is close to the skin. She has found a way to find her truth through writing, through embracing her past and her present and through all...

Alison Fowler & Stephanie Pringle - Casting Directors

7/19/2019
I love a good collaborative duo. Lennon & McCartney. Koppelman & Levien. And now Fowler & Pringle. There's something about 2 people coming together in service of an idea and a passion for being creative that excites me like very few things do. It's a been a dream of mine, my whole life, to meet someone on the same creative wavelength as me and make something with them. Write a movie. Create a TV show. Start a band and play some gigs. It remains a dream and not a goal because it's not...

Author, Nigel Featherstone (whole episode)

7/12/2019
Nigel's recently published novel, "Bodies of Men" is powerful, very human and utterly significant. I originally released this back in April in two parts. Here's the whole conversation, released for the first time today. Nigel is a deeply thoughtful man and an hour an a half in his great company only scratches the surface, of what an important creative soul he is. ** Nigel Featherstone is an Australian writer whose, powerful new novel, Bodies of Men is to be published by Hachette...

The Headstone (short story)

7/7/2019
This was not planned! I'm not trying to Trojan horse my creative writing into a conversational podcast feed. This is just me dealing, and trying to keep up with, change. I promise I am busy, busy, reaching out to amazing creative souls, not just here in Sydney but further afield. 'The Headstone' was a short story I wrote in almost one sitting on a Sunday afternoon in February, 2011. My wife was at work and my 14 month old son was burning through a fever which rendered him listless and...

How I Disappeared Completely (short story)

6/28/2019
This week, it's a short story I wrote in 2002, How I Disappeared Completely. The story was written off the back on my struggle with identity after moving from Sydney, Australia to Dublin, Ireland in 1999. Having worked in Event Management & PR for over 2 years, my first 'real' jobs out of Uni, I wasn't liking who I was becoming, or who I needed to become to be success and happy in this world. This story is me checking in with myself and coming to some important realisations. It is fiction...

Miles Hunt - Storyteller, Writer...Renegade

6/8/2019
Miles Hunt is many things. A lawyer. A philosopher. A comedian. A performer. An author. A storyteller. A podcaster. And, when our times call for it, a renegade. What I admire most about Miles is that he's always looking for different ways to tell stories, connect with an audience or community and express whatever idea's come to consume him at any time. He tackles his fears head on, whether it's taking to the stage to become a comedian, going part-time with this work to create more space...

One of the key motivators for Rachelle is helping people find alignment within their head-brain, heart-brain and gut-brain. The closer we get to this state, we get closer and closer to our truest self. Kinesiology...
