Talks and conversations from the Sydney Opera House featuring the world’s greatest minds and culture creators.

    Yumi Stynes | Ideas at the House

    Yumi Stynes | Ideas at the House

    From her breakthrough role as a VJ on Channel V in the early 2000s to her wildly popular podcasts and best-selling books, Yumi Stynes has been a pop culture fixture on Australian screens and airwaves for the past two decades. Here, she chats with Edwina Throsby about her rich and varied career: moving from country Victoria and into the media spotlight, the heady days of the early millennium music industry, and that time she called out Kerri-Anne Kennerley on national television. Buoyed by her hard work, fierce wit and sense of justice, Stynes emerges as an inspiration, whether it’s as a parent, podcaster, or someone who isn’t afraid to speak the truth to Australia’s racism.

    Lillian Ahenkan (aka Flex Mami) | Ideas at the House

    Entrepreneur, author, TV host, DJ, model, social media superstar: is there anything that Lillian Ahenkan can’t do? In this lively, inspiring conversation, Edwina Throsby speaks with Ahenkan – better known as FlexMami – about her path to modern stardom, delving into her unique life philosophy, indomitable business smarts, and relationship to online celebrity. From her unlikely childhood as the daughter of single Ghanaian parent in Sydney’s mostly white Eastern Suburbs to her fearless, self-motivated rise through fashion, PR and the club scene on her way to building a social media fanbase, Ahenkan reveals the secrets behind her remarkable journey – and her thoughts on the future of social media’s influencer phenomenon.

Excellent

Love this podcast series. I always get FOMO from being in Melbourne and missing the talks and shows at the Opera House and this podcast brings the house to me, simply brilliant. Edwina you do an incredible job! Thank you.

Brilliant

Great podcast with so many exceptional talks worth multiple listens. However be prepared to be frustrated at the end by the audience. Who no matter how often they are explicitly told to ask a short direct question, instead choose to launch into rambling comments that use up all the time for questions while the moderators desperately try to politely get things back on track.
