Episode 4: Alex and Ewan
In 2018, Alex and Ewan sold their house and basically all of their possessions. They bought a caravan and packed everything they had left- including the kids into the van and took off around Australia. With no real plan aside from starting in Tasmania they spent the next 13 months on the road. The experiences they shared and the memories they made will last a lifetime. We talked about how they did it, why they did it and the reality of returning to "the real world" when the trip was over.
Episode 3: Nanny Val
On this episode I chat with one of my favourite people in the whole world, my Nanny Val. Nan was born in 1943 and has lived a life that seems like it was straight from a Hollywood script. Put into orphanages by her mum, being removed from orphanages by her dad, stealing cabbages and potatoes from local farms to go with the carp she caught by hand in the nearby creek to feed her and her sisters. Nan's story just seems to unbelievable to be true but she is too much of a saint to make it all up.
Episode 2 Tyson Lantry
Tyson Lantry is a professional boxer, business owner and father of two boys. At the age of 4 he lost his mother and a younger brother in a horrific motorbike accident. Tyson talks about life growing up, spending 18 months in a juvenile detention centre before having his conviction overturned. We talk about overcoming adversity, maintaining a positive outlook and his next step as a professional boxer.
Episode 1: Jenny Scheimer
Imagine hearing a moaning sound coming from your 19 year old sons bedroom at 4:30 in the morning. This isn't a sound you've heard coming from his room before and he would normally sleep until midday. You walk into his room to find him face down on his bed, unresponsive, grey and lifeless. What would you do? This was the reality for Jenny and Heath Scheimer on April 26 2019. I met with Jenny to hear the incredible story of what happened next and the impact it had on her and her family and the people closest to them.
