    Julia Baird Finds Light In The Darkness

    Julia Baird Finds Light In The Darkness

    You may know Julia from her columns in Australian newspapers and the New York Times and from the TV where she hosts daily current affairs show, The Drum on the ABC. She’s also written several books including an award winning biography of Queen Victoria. Her latest book though, is much more personal.

    A few years ago, Julia's life took an unexpected twist that brought with it many challenges and led her to write a new book about finding the light. It's called Phosphorescence: On Awe And Wonder And Things That Sustain You When The World Goes Dark and it's an incredibly uplifting book all about the ways in which Julia found the light in life again and again and again, in some very unlikely places.

    How Are You Doing? A Check In With Amelia Lester

    How Are You Doing? A Check In With Amelia Lester

    Today I’m calling up one of my best friends, Amelia Lester who some of you may know if you listened to the podcast we used to host together about Trump’s America called Tell Me It’s Going To Be Ok.

    Amelia and I met when she was the editor of the Good Weekend magazine and living in Sydney - it’s her hometown but she’s lived most of her adult life in America ever since she moved there to go to Harvard on a scholarship in 2001.

    She came home to Australia a few years ago for that big job but left again soon after to marry her partner who is a military doctor based in the US which is where she lives now.

    So what's it like living in the country that is now the #1 Corona country in the world? And what's it like being married to a doctor who is treating covid patients? We had a lot of laughs in this conversation. Enjoy. Mia xxxx

    Sara-Marie Fedele: The Original Reality Star

    Sara-Marie Fedele: The Original Reality Star

    It's been nearly twenty years since Sara-Marie Fedele bum danced her way into the heart of any Australian who had a TV, during the first season of Big Brother. 

    Shortly after that, being one of the millions of Australians who fell in love with her, Mia put her on the cover of Cosmopolitan and nearly lost her job for it. 

    Sara-Marie paved the way, unintentionally, in so many ways: in the body positivity movement, in reality television and negotiating a life after her three months of enormous fame. 

    She's walked an unexpectedly fine line between public and private life over the last two decades - and Mia thought it was time to catch up.

    There's just no way you'll be listening to this conversation without smiling from ear to ear, pretty much the whole time. 

    It's time to fall in love with Sara-Marie again.

    It's time now to hear about what happened to Susan next, after meeting Wayne and going to Spain with tragic consequences - to hear the first part of her story, click here.

    Never has the cliche “truth is stranger than fiction” applied more than to the woman on today's episode. You couldn’t make Susan Francis’s life up - it has too many twists.

    It begins with an adoption story and the mystery of her biological parents, it includes a secret sister, a heartbreaking confrontation, unexpected love and a series of events that were so dramatic that she had to write them down in a memoir just to make sense of them. It’s called The Love That Remains.

CEHTR ,

Thank you for being in my world

Mia you are incredible and I honestly count you as one of the best interviewers podcasting - you now top my list with Denton & Fidler runners up!

I absolutely loved the recent interview with Julia Baird. I cannot imagine a much better place, Sunday morning after DLS ends, so sleeping in, home-brewed coffee in hand listening to these two inspiring, intelligent and incredibly smart and warm women. Regarde 🙏
