As a man who’s chased eyeballs for a decade or so, I thought I’d give ears a go. The chats here are friendly, a little whitty, insightful and spread a bit of dirt on my life as a backyard filmmaker, early-morning writer, dad, and bearded husband who needs to leave his toothbrush in the bathroom.

    With the filmmakers: Marathon My Age

    With the filmmakers: Marathon My Age

    When I turned 42 I thought I’d do myself a favour and go for a clever, marathon length run. But I cocked it up. I hadn't run a marathon at all (I was 195 meters short), and I wasn't the age of a marathon. So, I waited 71 days until my 42.195th birthday and finally ran the famous distance. Beer, delicious apples and an olive tree make cameo’s. Mitch and I talk about the film from a filmmaking perspective- from the garden shed we call our studio. It’s a yarn with the two blokes who make a simple idea into YouTube gold.

    Jade on being the smarter sibling

    Jade on being the smarter sibling

    Being a big sister is a big responsibility, especially when the little brother is a bit loose. With mum as contender for being the first reader of The Backyard Adventurer, which also means she was the key typo finder for the first edition, Jade knows the book as well as I do. As siblings we talk about being writers, before moving onto some more Beau and Jade memories that are a bit fun, irrelevant, and typical of good friends that are also related.

    Mum on the stupidity of risk

    Mum on the stupidity of risk

    Mum was the first to read my book The Backyard Adventurer, and pulls no punches when it comes to, well, everything. She is blunt, loving, our third parent to May, and has a great intolerance for doing risky things. Mum and I share rainfall data and she’s one of my best mates. Our brief chat is about the book, drunk idiots and parenthood.

    Helen on living with a bearded man

    Helen on living with a bearded man

    My wife is a classic. Not like a classic car, more like a classic song from a 1980’s movie that’s everyone's favourite and you can’t help but hum along when it comes on the radio. Warm, honest, streetsmart and funny without meaning to be, my wife's assessment of me and my book is a fine piece of poddy theatre.
