Panel discussions from Breakfast with Papers at the 2021 Adelaide Festival.

    Breakfast with Papers - Tory Shepherd, Simon Royal and Miles Kemp

    Breakfast with Papers - Tory Shepherd, Simon Royal and Miles Kemp

    Start your day the right way, with a stimulating discussion of the latest news headlines and hot button topics from The Advertiser and Sunday Mail. Today, hear from Tory Shepherd, Simon Royal and Miles Kemp.

    Tory Shepherd is a senior columnist with Guardian Australia and a former State Editor at The Advertiser. Her first book, On Freedom, was published in 2020.  

    Simon Royal has been a TV and radio broadcaster for more than 30 years, working on state and national programmes in both mediums. An inveterate late bloomer/procrastinator, he’s more recently turned his hand to writing feature articles for InDaily and ABC online. Simon is interested in most things, except football - a firm resolve that came to him at an early age. Growing up in country South Australia in the late 60s/70s, this presented some social difficulties, although he seems to have largely recovered from that now. He is besotted with Irish Terriers and John F. Kennedy, having written his postgraduate diploma thesis about the latter, and a series of essays on the former. He is deeply drawn to things with a devil may care attitude, as well as lost causes.

    Miles Kemp has worked as a reporter at The Advertiser since 1997, and in the industry since 1987, specialising in public sector policy. He has used the state's Freedom of Information law extensively to unearth inconvenient information. He has often been told to use his powers more for good but thinks journalism shouldn't take sides. Miles is often called a boomer but would like to stress he was born in 1966, two years after the accepted cut-off date.
