PRICK UP YOUR EARS…
I love radio, and have been incredibly fortunate to be invited onto some amazing shows with brilliant hosts. Here is a selection.
The Accidental Atheist is 30 minutes of searching radio as Gary Bryson, a lifetime atheist, asks whether he has “missed out” on something. One of the people he asked was me! Our conversation took place out on South Head at the entrance to Sydney Harbour – a place of deep meaning for me. You can podcast it now by clicking here – https://radio.abc.net.au/programitem/peo9QyyE2Q?play=true
I was on Radio National’s Blueprint for Living in their Spirit of Place segment, talking to Sian Prior, author of the exquisite memoir Shy. You can hear the podcast of our talk by click on that blue word back there – the one that says “podcast”!
Take a minute to listen to this amazing programme on BBC radio. Soul Music features the exquisite song Gracias A La Vida, and the way it connected and affected people all over the world. My story is a part of it. Such a graced opportunity to give thanks for an amazing artist’s work.
Amanda Smith, producer of The Body Sphere on Radio National, made a wonderful programme about walking. You will LOVE baby’s first steps! And you might recognise the pilgrim voice at the beginning and end of the show. You can podcast/download here.http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/bodysphere/talking-about-walking/5694562
The Sinning Across Spain episode of the wonderful Poetica programme, now lost to us, can be heard by clicking here.
Here is my talk with Rachael Kohn and Tony Doherty on The Spirit of Things. Click here to listen.
I’m so proud of this show. A celebration of my friendship with the astounding Kat Stewart. The Truth About Us is a Foxtel programme about double acts and mentorship and…well, love. I was so privileged to be a part of it.
Here’s a permalink to ABC TV Big Ideas online version of the Byron Bay Writers Festival panel called “It’s Not Easy Being Good”, where I shared the stage with Charlotte Wood, Hannie Rayson and Caroline Baum. About 54 minutes of footage.
Here is another to a conversation held at the Cervantes Institute in Sydney, in the company of the hilarious and witty Richard Glover.
This is a link to the extended conversation I had with Monsignor Tony Doherty. It runs for about 100 minutes, and includes the introduction and audience questions. It took place the day after George Pell’s 2012 press conference about the abuse of children within the church, and is coloured by that.
This link will take you to a video of me reading a beautiful piece by Michael McGirr.
This one will take you to a talk I shared about Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, one of my all-time favourite plays, at Melbourne’s Wheeler Centre. And here, you can watch me read my piece for My Enduring Love Affair With Writing at the Rotunda event organised by the amazing Bruno Lettieri. The love affair may be a bit dysfunctional, but there we are!
Radio and podcasty stuff for a quiet moment…
Click on the blue link words to hear one of my favourite conversations ever, on one of my best-loved programmes – The Spirit of Things, hosted by Rachael Kohn. We were joined by Monsignor Tony Doherty, and talked sins, faith and walking.
Here is a link to my session from the 2013 Sydney Writers Festival. I shared the stage with the beautiful Caroline Baum and Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild. It was a great chat.
I’m really proud of my episode of Radio National Poetica, and hope you can spend some time with it. Take a minute to scroll down and read the comments too. The one from “Johnnie Walker” took my breath away. The interconnectedness of us all!
Tuesday 21st May 2013 Amanda Muggleton reads Sinning for ABC The gorgeous Amanda selected Sinning when asked about her current reading habits. It’s great to hear her read from it!
Monday 9th July, 2012 10am all over Oz Radio National Books & Arts Daily I had a great chat with Michael Cathcart about Duchess of Malfi . Have a listen here:
Thursday 5th April 2012 10 pm around the country Late Night Live – Radio National Talking sins with Mr Adams. The man in black.
Sunday 6th May 2012 at 9pm Sundays with Safran – Triple J Crazy crazy hyper pilgrim. Slow down, pilgrim snail!
A little bit of print that is not under “Other Writing”…
On Sunday 9th September in the Sydney Sun-Herald, there was a review. Here is a photo!
