    Farmer Wants a Worker

    Farmer Wants a Worker

    Thousands of fruit and vegetable pickers are urgently needed RIGHT NOW! 

    The current labour shortage is a result of coronavirus travel restrictions leading to a huge drop in overseas workers, who in the past have made up a large proportion of the Australian workforce.

    So why aren't local Aussies applying? Just how tough is the job? What are some of the positive aspects of this work and what government incentives are in place?

    Man up & Speak up

    Man up & Speak up

    Men are encouraged to show strength and many find it difficult to open up when they are struggling. So how should a man behave when his child is diagnosed with cancer?

    Research from www.redkite.org.au has revealed that men are less likely to ask for Redkite's cancer support services than women. Redkite's Dad Connect Groups provide a great example of how important it is for men to speak up in times of hardship.

    Joining Byron Cooke live for this episode - Jonathon Coles, Senior Social Worker, Redkite Community Based Support. Peter Morris, who's son Benjamin was diagnosed with cancer in January 2018. 

    Also contributing to this episode are Gus Worland, Founder of www.gotcha4life.org.au and Josh Kennedy, co-captain of Sydney Swans [proud Redkite partner]

From Radio God to Podcast Prince

Absolutely love with a capital L the Byron Cooke Show. From Radio God with the Fox to going solo with a show that discusses diverse topics without a hidden agenda. The podcast prince is willing to tackle both sides of the argument in his engaging, show stopper style ! I finally think that Australia has its very own Parkinson in this guy. Should be the start of what can only become bigger and bigger !!! Rock on Podcast Prince ! #legend #radiogod #soloact #mrprimetime
