    Electric Blue – Superheroes and Supervillains

    Electric Blue – Superheroes and Supervillains

    Paul Verhoeven, author of Loose Units is back with a second book about his father John’s time in NSW police and it’s another fantastic, action-packed and funny read. There’s a deeper, darker side this time too, as the Verhoeven’s confront the brutal bullying Paul suffered during his childhood and the decisions his parents made around dealing with it. 
    This is an intriguing conversation about father son dynamics. 


    Thanks to Paul Verhoeven & John Verhoeven, and Professor Stephen Cordner.


    If you or someone you know is being bullied, contact The Bully Project.


    Listen to my other interview with Paul and John on Australian True Crime here.

The best 💜

Meshel makes the best interviews. The topics are broad range and always interesting. The Tania Lacy made my day. The background to The Factory/Revolution days r eye opening.

Honest journalism

Thanks Michelle for breaking through the noise and giving a voice to an honest and real dialogue. However, please change that Bio profile picture for this podcast series, it looks so odd to me and for me diminishes the value of your content.

Tania

Please Meshel can you please pass on another gen-xer’s appreciation to Tania. I think she doesn’t realise how wonderful she was for us.
