    Why Ada Nicodemou Stayed

    Why Ada Nicodemou Stayed

    In 2000, Ada Nicodemou joined the cast of Home and Away, Australia’s second longest-running soap opera, after Neighbours. She signed on for a 6-month contract to play the role of Leah Patterson-Baker. But 21 years, and a few near-death experiences and a few husbands (Leah’s had way more husbands than Ada who has only had one) one of Australia’s best-known and most-loved actors is still at Summer Bay. 

    On this episode of No Filter, Ada and Mia discuss everything from love, to loss, to loyalty….

    The Toxic Truth About Young Doctors

    The Toxic Truth About Young Doctors

    Yumiko Kadota always dreamed of being a doctor. And it happened. She made it happen. And at first, she thrived in the high-pressure, high-performance environment of the public hospital system. Until she didn’t.

    It culminated in a total breakdown at which point Yumiko had no choice but to resign.
    On her way out, she wrote a searing, emotional blog post that gave an inside account of how a broken system was breaking young doctors - and it went viral. So what went wrong? And how is she now?

    Kirsten Was 28 When She Had Her Stomach Removed

    Kirsten Was 28 When She Had Her Stomach Removed

    This story starts with a dinner. Six friends are gathered to celebrate a farewell in a fancy restaurant in inner city Sydney. For one of them, a young woman in her twenties called Kirsten Bookallil it would be a last meal of sorts.

    Because the next day, Kirsten was having her stomach removed.

    Kirsten and Mia have been friends for over 20 years, and on this very raw and open episode of No Filter, Kirsten shares her story about love and loss and four generations of women.

    THE END BITS:

    With thanks to Kirsten Bookallil

Enjoy

Enjoy listening to No Filter but would like Mia to not always interrupt when her guest is speaking as this can be annoying.

Alex keys ,

Great interview!

Loved this one Mia! Delta sounds like a lovely woman, friendly, down to earth and relatable! Great work xx

Ada interview

Oh Mia. I felt you really did put Ada in a very uncomfortable position talking about Harrison. I really don’t think you should’ve discussed her loss so intensely. For a person who wants to keep that part of her life private this must’ve been so uncomfortable for her. I think this conversation should’ve been left for you to have with her privately off air. Poor Ada, I hope she does develop the strength to say no to future media requests on this heartbreaking subject. Also the public would be much more comfortable hearing stories from those that are fully open to sharing such a personal experience, such as yourself.
