    Introducing Extraordinary Stories: Young Talent Time

    Introducing Extraordinary Stories: Young Talent Time

    It was a child star factory that catapulted Dannii Minogue and Tina Arena onto the world stage and created the country’s first-ever teen heartthrobs. But to a generation of Australians, Young Talent Time was much more than a TV show. Join Johnny Young and the cast as they journey through the highlights of a glittering moment in Australian TV history- into the spandex-wearing, mullet-sporting musical spectacular of the 1970s and 80s.

    This is the first episode of Extraordinary Stories: Young Talent Time, Australia's Child Star Factory. Episodes two and onwards, and all past seasons of Extraordinary Stories are available to stream now, exclusively to MPlus subscribers.

    Australia’s New Queen Of Breakfast TV

    Australia’s New Queen Of Breakfast TV

    There’s a good reason why breakfast TV hosts are among the biggest celebrities in the country. It’s an intimate and long-term relationship. Lisa Millar is the host of Australia’s most popular breakfast show, ABC News Breakfast. She’s a Walkley Award-winning journalist who has covered some of the biggest news stories in the world, including terrorist attacks, mass shootings, and natural disasters. 

    When you’re doing three hours of live TV every day, unexpected things happen and you have to react instantly. You need to improvise and think on your feet. You can’t hide who you are when you’re streaming live on air for 15 hours every week, for years. But being a TV star is very new to Lisa - in ways that are both wonderful and incredibly difficult, even painful.


    THE END BITS:

    With thanks to Lisa Millar

    “I Was Flying An American Airlines Plane On 9/11”: Beverley Bass’ Extraordinary Story

    “I Was Flying An American Airlines Plane On 9/11”: Beverley Bass’ Extraordinary Story

    September 11 2001 is etched in the minds of people all over the world. It changed the way we lived and traveled, fundamentally. But, it also gave us the story of a little town in Canada that did some pretty extraordinary things in the face of terror. A story that has been turned into a musical called Come From Away. But before it was a Broadway smash, it was the story of Beverley Bass, American Airlines' first-ever female pilot. And on this 20th anniversary of September 11, Beverley joins me from Texas to share it...

    Ben Crowe Knows How You Can Find Your Purpose

    Ben Crowe Knows How You Can Find Your Purpose

    There’s a good reason why Ben Crowe is Australia’s most in-demand professional mentor and leadership coach.  

    Before he started his own business, called MojoCrowe, Ben worked in the ‘Just Do It’ team - helping Nike’s athletes work out who they are outside the sport they were famous for. He’s worked with everyone from Ash Barty, to Dylan Alcott, Andre Agassi, to Stephanie Gilmore. He’s worked with special Ops Forces, teenagers, world champions, and world leaders.

    Ben’s all about helping people find a balance between confidence & happiness, and balancing achievement…with fulfillment.

    It feels like we have never needed a mindfulness coach more than we do right now during this crazy time. So what advice can Ben give us?

    Living With Relationship OCD

    Living With Relationship OCD

    Everyone has intrusive thoughts. But if you live with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? Well, it becomes something much more extreme. You get stuck on your thoughts, and you can’t move past them. And you play those thoughts on a loop, like a broken record.

    You’ve probably heard about OCD - although it’s widely misunderstood and misrepresented. But Relationship OCD is something you’ve probably never heard of. And it’s a type of mental ill-health that affects a surprising number of people.

    On this episode of No Filter, Penny Moodie speaks very candidly, and vulnerably, about her experience with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Relationship OCD.

Justin Cullen

This lady proves herself a disappointment. A privileged person in every way. A high flying privileged woman in a very superficial profession. And still complains for unfortunately not being able to conceive a female offspring. And oh the selective denial of science that gender is apparently not determined in the womb. Never-mind the genetic factors, chromosomes etc. the imagined prejudice against Asians. I am a Filipino , similar physical characteristics as an Indonesian person and this prejudice she’s talking about is news to me. How much could she have been suffering from it from her paid for business class flight to Paris? Utterly ridiculous. Mia, I love listening to you, I think you are highly intelligent but This guest was a head scratcher.
