PRICK UP YOUR EARS…
I love radio, and have been incredibly fortunate to be invited onto some brilliant shows with searching hosts. Here is a selection.
Here is a conversation with Rachael Kohn and Tony Doherty on The Spirit of Things. It was recorded back when we were just starting to work on The Attachment. Click here to listen.
Gary Bryson, a lifetime atheist, asks whether he has “missed out” on something. One of the people he quizzed 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 the 30 minute programme 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 clicking 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 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 a legendary 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 Poetica, which was one of my all-time favourite ABC radio shows, can be heard by clicking here.
I’m so proud of this show. It’s 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 privileged to be a part of it.
This is a link to the extended conversation I had with Monsignor Tony Doherty, which is referenced in the text of The Attachment. It runs for about 100 minutes, and includes the introduction and audience questions.
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.
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. Also mentioned in The Attachment!
Radio and podcasty stuff for a quiet moment…
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!
