    New MasterChef host Melissa Leong on food and hard work

    New MasterChef host Melissa Leong on food and hard work

    When I interviewed Melissa Leong it was before the MasterChef announcement. Back then, I was excited about her upcoming Netflix fame.
    There was so much to chat about with Melissa aka @fooderti on Instagram. The zig-zag of her career, two years living in Tasmania on a self-imposed sabbatical, writing cookbooks and hosting and judging on The Chefs’ Line on SBS and now, Netflix.
    In this episode Melissa talks about the role of food in her Singaporean-Australian upbringing. We chat about the role of SBS in Australia, diversity and representation on the small screen. I also shamelessly crush on Melissa’s style.

    NYTimes best-selling author Laura Tucker on her YA debut

    Brooklyn-based Laura Tucker has written over 20 books - two of which were New York Times bestsellers - Standing Tall with Vivian Stringer and A Mother’s Reckoning with Sue Klebold.
    But in this interview we chat about All The Greys on Greene Street - Laura’s YA fiction debut. The book takes place in New York City in 1981 and our 12-year-old hero Olympia is struggling with a mother who won’t get out of bed, a father who has gone missing and there’s an art mystery afoot.
    Laura talks about that particular moment in SoHo history, kids roaming the city and the writer’s life Laura has created for herself.
    Find Laura on Instagram and buy her book from your fave indie bookseller.

Great Aussie perspective

Just burned through 3 episodes in a row and it really struck me just how diverse and culturally nuanced the Australian creative landscape is! Love Felicity’s ability to capture all of that with her amazing selection of guests, questions but also the contexts she gives in these conversations. Can’t wait to hear more!

Might be fixed! Cool interview but host volume too low

This might be something that’s already been addressed - but in the Margaret Zhang interview, which was great - the host volume was so low that I couldn’t hear the questions without an extra effort.
