Episode 15 - Kirsty Webeck (Comedian; ABC, Tonightly, Comedy Up Late)
Kirsty Webeck is a brilliant comedian and great friend of mine. We met up before a gig we did together and recorded this before performing and it was so much fun. We chat about comedy and have an interesting discussion about pre conceived notions of what it takes to be a comedian. Such a great, interesting chat.kirstywebeck.com@kirstywebeckKirsty has her own podcast you can listen to here: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-best/id1511495483
Episode 14 - Patrick Livesey (Playwright, actor; The Boy George, Gone Girls, Kwanda)
This is one of my favourite episodes of the podcast so far! Patrick Livesey is an amazing actor and writer. He’s written two phenomenal theatre shows that we dissect in this episode. His debut show The Boy George is set in the future in 14 year old Prince George’s bedroom as he comes to terms with the crumbling of the monarchy and his place in the world and the monarchy’s role. His second show Gone Girls was similarly a make believe scenario whereby Julia Gillard and Julie Bishop form an alliance to destroy the patriarchy from within. Pat is a beautiful story teller. Hearing him speak about politics and his own life is mesmerising.You can see Pat's show Gone Girls in Melbourne next year! Definitely recommend checking it out.@patlives_yPat's Recommendation: Moreblessing Maturure (playwright, actor, activist)
Episode 13 - Katharine Greenaway (social psychologist; Uni of Melbourne, University of Queensland, Canadian Institute of Advanced Research)
