Joel Coleman will be discussing the way of the world and creating amazing things with the most interesting people he finds roaming this planet.
Joel Coleman Podcast - Stefan Hunt - Film, Art, Death
Stefan Hunt joins me on the podcast, we couldn't be in the same place, so Stefan joins me over the phone. The audio sounds like a phone call, but it's worth moving straight past that to hear what Stefan has to say. The man is one of the most creative people roaming the planet. He has produced feature length films, documentaries and T.V. series, worked as a film director for all the huge clients, made music videos for the big bands, organised festivals about death that everyone told him would never work and even illustrated a tram in Melbourne. Yet, with all this success, Stefan has remained with his feet firmly on the ground and accepted that taking life too seriously is pointless, because, in his own words ‘we’re all going to die’. It’s an hour long rollercoaster through the creative genius of Stefan Hunt's brain. The show ends with us agreeing to collaborate on an artwork for the episode notes that I started and Stefan finished.

Joel Coleman Podcast - Troy Abraham - Yoga, Life & Woo Woo
Troy Abraham is a Californian who now resides in Sydney. We saw each other while out walking, during our ‘lockdown’ daily exercise, and decided to catch up once restrictions were eased (thankfully they were) and record a podcast. Troy teaches yoga at a fairly high level, running teacher trainings and workshops. He is a fast talking, fast thinking, entertaining guy that makes for a captivating conversation. We talk about life under lockdown, the spread of information in the digital world, social media and human behaviour. We also discuss the yoga world and how fact and science often get caught up in vagueness and ‘woo-woo’.
Joel Coleman Podcast - Craig Stevens - What Happens When You Die
When I say we talk about ‘what happens when you die’ I don’t mean in a spiritual manner, I mean the mechanics of what actually happens to a body, where it goes, how it is treated and what the process is. Death, in our culture, is generally treated as something to be held at arms length and is sanitised by people who deal with funerals. Craig is one of those people. His down-to-earth, relaxed and completely respectful attitude made for one very interesting and eye-opening conversation.
Joel Coleman Podcast - Maggie Sten - Criminal Defence Lawyer
Maggie Sten has been working as a solicitor in Sydney since the early 1980’s. To say she has ‘seen it all’ is an understatement. Having represented the who’s who of Australian criminal figures, she has an understanding of not only the justice system, but society’s issues at large. We talk about domestic violence, drugs, violent crime, foolish criminals and more. Despite the weight of what Maggie deals with every day, she maintains an incredible sense of humour that lights up this conversation and makes it very entertaining…

Great for keeping me connected
Love this new edition, I am a Manly local, surfer and person who considers himself to be connected to the northern beaches, but my family and i moved to HK to live 3 yrs ago.
Hard to imagine how much you miss a community like Manly, especially when you used to surf 4 days a week!
Loved your episode on Ora and the Cook Room, great story and back ground and when we where back in town for Xmas - both those places are now favourites.
Listening to your convo with Mark Kelly (awesome to hear from the man who got rid of Tony), it was interesting to hear your thoughts on population growth globally. Hard to disagree with your point of view on slowing global population growth, but it seems overly simplistic as we need to allow for dispersion also (some countries still need to grow, whilst developed nations need to slow down / decline)
Also near term economic implant of population decline is worth considering
Japan is a classic example - slow population growth, ageing population and zombie economy
China has had its slowest population growth ever in 2019, GDP is circa 6% (below what they need to maintain full employment and social balance)
So long term, reduced population is likely the right outcome, the transition period is probably very uncomfortable for the next 1 to 3 generations as we get there
Anyway, loved your photos, and now love the dialogue
So I do love the long format chat and your choice of people to interview…but the one with Alex Johnson has been my fave so far. Maybe because of my love of food and all things healthy, but I found the chat informative, funny, thought provoking and really quite inspiring. Loved it!!! Thank you!! Awesome work.
Hi mate, I was really enjoying the poddy... what happened? Do you move somewhere else...?
