Ep050 - Andrea Kirwin - Bloom
This episode features the one and only Andrea Kirwin, one of my favourite singer songwriters. Today we are celebrating her new album, "Bloom".
I have so much admiration for Andrea because, not only is she a world class musician, she is also an amazing entrapreneur. Her business acumen is astounding and I am alway in awe of the creative ways she chooses to express her art. If you are looking for a mentor of singing, songwriting, guitar playing and most importantly, how to turn these skills into a career, Andrea is the one! Aside from all of that, Andrea is an amazing human being, who I am grateful to be able to call a friend!
During our talk today, Andrea mentions Ted O'brien. To put it into context, Ted O'brien is the Federal Minister in Parlament for this area.

Ep48 Robert Forster Repost
A repost from 2016. Rest in Peace, Robert.
Three years ago, Robert Forster and I sat down to breakfast at Marco's Restaurant in West Hollywood. Aside from being an Academy Award Nominated Actor for his role as Max Cherry in Quentin Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown', Robert is a motivational speaker. With 182 film and television credits to his name, he uses the stories of his life - working with legendary directors and actors - to highlight insightful lessons. Enjoy!

Ep047 The Goat's Acoustic Sessions Wrap-up
On the 13-15th of September, 2019, I had the honour of performing at the inaugural Goats Accoustic Sessions, or GAS Festival, hosted by The Hillbilly Goats! This episode is a wrap up of that festival. Bryce and Mahney Wearne are the brains behind the Goats and, after years of being involved in other festivals both on stage and behind the scenes, they decided to create one of their own. They bought a 100 acre block of land, west of Maryborough, Queensland and,
over a four month period worked with a few dedicated volunteers to create the festival site, complete with camping, fresh water, showers and a beautiful huge shed, all fitted out with acoustic batting and accoutraments to make a perfect performance area. Join me as I talk to Bryce and Mahney, and a few of the other performers the day after the festival. Check out trtpod.com to see photos, videos and links to all their websites!
Ep046 Annette Fear - Celebrity Chef Gone Wild!
From a small farming town in Northern New South Wales to becoming the head (and only) chef on a remote scientific research station in the Antarctic - Annette Fear has always taken the road less travelled! Her early life took her to many places - including the USA - Asia - and even Yandina, where she helped establish one of Australia's most iconic destination restaurants and cooking schools - Peter and Helen Brierty's, The Spirit House. After twenty years (during which she also co-owned her own successful restaurant in Sunshine Beach, Queensland - Sabai Sabai, and co-authored, with Helen Brierty, five successful cookbooks for the Spirit House) Annette decided she wanted a new challenge and persistently applied for a spot on Macquarie Island research station until, after five years, they finally gave it to her. There, she cooked for the station, observed the penguins and elephant seals and played with the baby seals after they were weened from their mothers. Annette's journey doesn't seem any closer to over as she takes off on another trip around the world! Her story is fascinating and inspiring! And check out all other links at www.trtpod.com
