    Julie Bishop

    Julie Bishop

    If Australians can agree about one thing, it’s that we’re not that impressed by our politicians. Julie Bishop is one of the very few exceptions to the rule. As foreign minister, it didn’t matter where she was in the world or how jetlagged she might’ve been, she always turned up immaculately dressed, super organised and on it. And usually after having done a six-kilometre run. But when it came to the crunch, her party chose to ignore the most electable alternative to Malcolm Turnbull and voted in Scott Morrison. How much did that hurt?

    Neil & Liam Finn

    Neil’s a musical legend. Liam’s had his own share of success in a 15 year career that started with the band Betchadupa.

    Jess Mauboy

    Jess Mauboy

    We all remember first seeing Jess as that kid from Darwin on Australian Idol, the shy girl who didn’t need to win that competition to be a star. Her voice and that inner radiance did it all. She’s since had a string of hits, sung with Snoop Dogg, supported Beyonce, represented us at Eurovision and on Sesame Street. She flexed her acting muscles in The Sapphires, Bran Nue Dae and The Secret Daughter. And is about to bring out a new album called Hilda. All this and she’s just turned 30.

    Keith Urban

    Keith Urban

    The man who has it all. Good looks, loads of talent, a hugely successful musical career, two beautiful kids, an equally smart and successful wife. Ahead of his Australian tour of Graffiti U, he spoke to Andrew from the stage of the Shoreline Amphitheatre in California, discussing his career, reminiscing about touring with Slim Dusty, and revealing that Nicole saved him from the downward spiral of drug and alcohol addiction with a “divine intervention”.

    Michelle Payne

    Michelle Payne

    She rode into our hearts as the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup, then followed the win with a rousing speech calling out sexism in racing. Now she reflects on her upbringing as one of ten siblings, a relationship with her tough-love father, and in quite extraordinary detail, the number of ways she has almost killed herself on the track.

    Angela White

    Angela White

    She’s arguably Australia’s most successful porn star, but she may not be what comes to mind when you hear those two words. She uses her real name for a start. She has no shame about what she does. And she’s no easily led dummy. She has an Honours Degree in Gender Studies from Melbourne University, her thesis on Women in the Porn Industry. She produces, directs and stars in her own videos. She calls herself a feminist. And she believes porn can be a force for good.


    Warning: this episode is adults only, pretty graphic in places.
