    Khanh Ong pt 2 \ There's a reason he's one of Masterchef's favourite contestants. Here's why.

    Khanh Ong pt 2 \ There's a reason he's one of Masterchef's favourite contestants. Here's why.

    You probably know Khanh Ong as one of Masterchef’s most beloved contestants across the entire series.
    I’ve known Khanh for a little over a decade, and in that time I’ve watched him flourish from a fresh-faced 19 year old to now an incredible cook, television personality, author, restaurant owner and a staunch advocate for the LGBTQI+ community. 
    But life hasn’t always been easy, despite what his glittering Instagram aesthetic and infectious smile will have you believe.
    Born in a refugee camp in Indonesia, encountering racism and bullying when settling in Australia, realising he was gay and coming out to the world, the untimely death of his father to liver cancer and his subsequent mental breakdown – Khanh’s story is testament to the fact life can throw you many, many lemons but it’s what you do with them that ultimately shape who you are as a person.
    This is honestly one of favourite Lemonade episodes – partly because it’s unlike any other I’ve done and if you’re an avid listener, you’ll know what I mean as soon as it begins!
    It’s free-flowing and hilarious but also gets really deep and profound in parts - just like my friendship with Khanh, really!
    This is part two of my conversation with Khanh. If you haven't listened to part 1 yet, do that first so that this one makes a whole lot more sense.
    A content warning with this one if you’ve got little ears around.

    Ashleigh Barber \ Finding purpose, supporting sibling loss, and opening up about the day life changed forever

    Ashleigh Barber \ Finding purpose, supporting sibling loss, and opening up about the day life changed forever

    Everything changed the morning of January 27, 2016 for Ashleigh Barber.
    Her brother Harley, who she was extremely close with, had been killed along with his passenger in a horrific car accident.
    And just to make everything worse, it was all over the news, social media and the papers. 
    His final moments were inescapable, beamed everywhere, with the media desperate for a grab about the single worst moment in Ash and her family’s life.
    For the first time, Ash opens up about how she put one foot in front of the other in the months following Harley’s death, the relentlessness of the media, court, and everything that followed, grieving her brother and the future he now won’t have, why siblings are the forgotten mourners, writing as an outlet for grief and how she’s found her purpose in helping others through volunteering her time with a service to support grieving siblings.
    Thank you Ash for so bravely sharing your story with so much heart and vulnerability.
    A trigger warning – we discuss suicide.


    - Follow Ash's page Life After Harley here, you can find out more about the bereaved sibling support service here
    - As always, you can connect with me here
    - 24 hour support is available through Lifeline on 13 11 14

    Jessica Sanders \ Body love, smashing stereotypes and doing the work so future generations don't have to

    Jessica Sanders \ Body love, smashing stereotypes and doing the work so future generations don't have to

    Growing up, Jessica Sanders never felt out of place. But it was somewhere during puberty she pieced together the only comments she received, were about how she looked. And being taller than everyone else, that’s what was pointed out. Every single time she met someone. 
    So, she began to hate her body. She wanted to be smaller. Thinner. Shorter. She wanted to fit in with the other girls. She didn’t want to stand out. And she certainly didn’t want another person to comment on how much bigger or taller she was since the last time they saw her.
    Enter years of fad diets, yo-yo weight fluctuations, restrictive eating and that lie we all tell ourselves. I’ll be happy when... I lose that last 5 kilos. 
    Until one day… she realised no matter how many calories she counted… this was her body. For life. So, she flipped her mindset, and decided to embrace who she is and what she looks like and love it for all that it is.
    She’s written a children’s book – Love Your Body – full of the kind of information and body positivity she needed to hear when she was young.
    Jess followed it up with two more books, Me Time and a follow up to Love Your Body for boys called Be Your Own man. I’ve read it to my son – and it’s a game changer.
    This is such a vital listen for mums or mums to be, or anyone who has struggled with dieting.
    We chat teaching children resilience and gratitude, role modelling body positive talk, equipping kids with tools to encourage positive mental health and bringing young boys into the conversation about self care and self love.


    - Follow Jess here, check out her website here where you can buy her incredible books - a great Chrissy present!

    The Juice with Monique Barry \ Where are all of the eligible men? Self worth, toxic friendships, surrender & festive stress

    It's that time of the month again! No, not that one – it's The Juice with Monique Barry!
    In this bumper episode, we answer questions from listeners and bring our own experiences from the last 6 weeks to the table. Yep, we're discussing whether there are in fact any eligible men left on this earth, self worth, breaking up with a friend, what surrendering actually means and how to navigate festive stress.
