    Damien Leith

    From the Archives:
    Damien Leith, the Irish sweetheart of Australian Idol back in 2006. He's still living in Australia, and has just moved down to the Gong to work as a radio announcer - he's certainly got the voice for it.
    When we asked Damien about his mental health journey, he didn't hesitate - OCD. His struggles with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder extend back to his childhood, where he developed what he describes as "proper OCD."

    Virginia Gay (She's back!)

    Virginia Gay (She's back!)

    The wonderful Virginia Gay is back with us once more.
    Not only is she returning to the podcast, but she's also returned to Australia after a stint in the US.
    It was a big trip for her in more ways than one.
    Not only did she have to battle through COVID (quite literally, she actually got it), but her time in the states was the first time Virginia had been truly cut off from all the support systems she'd built up down under.
    Suffice to say, adjusting to that reality wasn't easy. In fact, Virginia will be the first to admit that her adjustment period led to her engaging in the art of “floor sobbing” more than once.
    But through the trials and tribulations of living alone in America, Virginia's learnt a lot about recognizing her own strengths and the power of being truly vulnerable..

    Ryan Shelton

    Ryan Shelton

    Comedian and multi-skilled creative Ryan Shelton is, obviously, a man of immense and varied talents. Arguably the greatest skill he's developed though, has been his ability to survive over 20 years of being best friends with Hamish Blake.
    The two first met in school, quickly bonding over a mutual love of comedy. That passion for laughter would carry through to their uni days, as Ryan and Hamish -alongside Tim Bartley and Andy Lee - created sketch show "Radio Karate" on channel 31.
    At the time, Ryan believed the show would be his first and last foray into comedy before pursuing a career in advertising. But Hamish, in tandem with (guess who) Andy Lee, had other ideas.
    Of course, Hamish and Andy went on to become the star duo we know them as today, and their wild ride of success has been fun for all involved.
    And usually, when your best friend is out there kicking goals – you’re celebrating with them every step of the way. But Ryan struggled to be truly happy for his best mate.
    After all, how could he be when Hamish was living out Ryan’s comedy dreams.
     
    For a long time that feeling of envy was hard for Ryan to admit to himself, let alone Hamish.
    But eventually, in 2019, during a dinner between himself and Hamish – Ryan finally worked up the courage and found the right moment to tell the truth.
    Here’s the story of how it all happened.
