I'm in a new book


Doesn't this book look great?!

She's having such a nice time!

It actually is great by the way. I got kind of addicted to reading it the other day and I haven't even reached the chapter I wrote yet. 

To read my chapter or any of the other, better chapters: go here.


Some radio

Been talking on radio a bit lately with some smart people.

Here's me on 'the Wrap' on Patricia Karvelas's show on Radio National talking about what drives me crazy in the news cycle which, let's face it, is what anybody hears who is trapped in a car with me for too long and frankly I can't believe I got away with it.

This was a fun Conversation Hour. I got to talk with Malcolm Knox about the supermarket duopoly in Australia and gossip about an ancient Melbourne murder case with Gideon Haigh

I've spoken to these fine people on the Conversation Hour on ABC radio about IVF and various other interesting topics about which I previously not as educated. Look at me standing next to these smarties!



Stupidly Busy


So a few weeks ago, Stew Farrell and I started a website called Stupidly Big. We weren't sure what it was yet. Then we started a podcast, housed on the website. The podcast is half an hour long. It's called Stupidly Small.

Here's an article in the latest Broadsheet about it, and about what's been going on for us over the last few weeks.

And from that article is this photo by Peter Tarasiuk featuring us, sitting on tiny chairs.



Stupidly Small Thing

We recorded our first podcast today.

It's small. It's stupidly small. Small enough for your walk to work. Just enough time in which to do the dishes. 

Check it out. You might even like it. It's here and it is very sensible indeed.



Stupidly Big Things

A few quick updates. They're short but they're punchy. Strap in.


1. I am no longer co-presenting The Breakfasters on Melbourne radio station 3RRR. There's an announcement about that here.

2. As a result of this, Stew Farrell and I have decided to base ourselves at our brand new website, Stupidly Big.

3. We're planning a podcast. We're planning a bunch of other things too. You can sign up over at Stupidly Big to be kept in the loop about that.

4. I'm also going to be working on my own projects and writing a bunch of stuff including these words but also some other ones.

5. Expecting a child? You should probably call it Ladies and Gentleman. Bit of a language warning on that one. You're welcome.

Keep in touch.
