Local Landscape Architecture Studio Latte twenty-seven are responsible for the projects delivery at Brisbane correspondent MCI can headed outdoors to find out more. I'm standing on end street it's a major artery that slices through downtown Brisbane. You can definitely hear the traffic zooming Pasta and I hitch bits that you can almost hit the Swish of suits and banking bills that signifies that I'm really in the thick of the state capitals economic engine room. But despite this audio onslaught of the Modern Day hustle bustle that you can hear surrounding me has been really is quite a special place to be. There's a beautiful benign climate, abundant and lush native greenery and active willingness from local government, oven planners, and landscape architects to us both of these factors and increased oven populations access to green spaces, and while there's manicured pox and architecturally designed river walks aplenty. Brisbane's population can also get a wilder by Philip fix by taking a short drive to the outer suburbs. We've traveled just twenty five minutes from the city centre to Oxley Creek. This is where Brisbane City Council designers and the community a working together to restore a twenty kilometer long Cardo of waterways and surrounding Bushland. So sitting down by a creek at Creek Common This is a really well loved community space. I'm joined by Senior Landscape Architect, Regina Prutton from lot studios along with the team from Oxley Creek Transformation Georgina and twenty seven colleagues built master plan. So this wild patch of greenery back in two thousand eighteen. A significant pot was that it was robust. From an environmental and social perspective. So we looked indigenous cultural heritage, hydrological values, ecological and habitat values, and of course, social values. We tried to pull all that together as well as some. Indepth community engagement and stakeholder engagement to really create a master plan that was representative of what is and what can be but had I guess tangible outcomes the community could really engage with. Historically nights have turned their backs to the creeks, rivers, treating them as industrial transportation nodes rather than a backdrop for nature and recreation. Happily this mentality has gone through an astronomical shift in recent years a fact that supported by the equivalent investment of nearly sixty two, million euros from City Hall for this. Creek. Project alone. Importantly, the Oxley Creek's master plan is a long game approach a twenty year approach in fact. Key Design Outcomes really to create a twenty kilometer, linnea walking and cycling trail. Obviously, that's a really long term plan. Does a lot of things that have to happen in the in the interim smartly, the project deliverables have been broken down into incremental improvements. This helps ensure change is achievable economically viable, and that design remains in touch with the ecological and social requirements of the community and expensive team spending government and multiple landscape architecture phones are working towards elevating the green corridor so that it becomes one of the city's key lifestyle and leisure destinations. We had some priority projects that fell out of it one of which has just been recently opened down at lower Pinta. It's an adventure playground and getting the kids involved. They've got a little Bush ranges program So that's pretty cool. Oxley.
"David. Because Australia's so far away from the other continents. It's easy for the rest of the world to not really have a clear image of what it's like. The stereotype made include kangaroos on every corner and Paul Hogan Wrestling Crocodiles, in the outback. Do you find that a lot of visitors you meet in Australia come armed with a lot of misperceptions about what they'll find preconceptions invariably wrong. Suddenly it's the case in Australia where as you saw the introduction, the business about Kangaroos hopping down the main street with nothing could be further divorced from reality that image and a Crocodile Dundee. Well, he came from the northern territory and he actually lives in America now, and he's one of our favorite experts. So, there you go. Australia's quite urbanized then. It's very of an is and it's a huge landmass. It's only a fraction smaller than the United States and everyone will the vast majority of people live within twenty kilometers of the coast say fifteen miles of the coast. So you have a huge concentration of people have been buried narrowband typically stretching from Cy Melvyn in the south up to Brisbane that halls probably seventy five percent of Australia's population right there. Yes. Okay. Now, the two dominant cities would be Sydney and Melbourne where where do you go for the best urban thrills? What would you recommend? How do they compare comparing? Them is very difficult and the answer you get when you ask that question will dependent tally on where that person was from. They are Mel Benon. Sevan for Melvin or Sydney Saad and the endless rivalry between the two. People from Sydney Regard Melburnians as easy as boring or as people for Melvin C Sydneysiders as frivolous where you fun loving I come from northern New South Wales I'm a country boy. Oh so you can get unbiased I i. have a Sydney Wife. Sybil on wife. So my leanings now with Sydney, but the only city I've lived in Australia in Melvin. Okay how do you characterize the two times? Is there a different culture for the people in the United States you know we got the coast and the West Coast I think there's a big difference between the two and the difference is really driven by climate. And that Melvin. Has further south and thus it has quite cold winters Sydney's lot warmer and therefore the accident is more on outdoor activities and as a coastal city, you have wonderful beaches what the bond I beach is. One of the world's iconic beaches now is their rivalry between the two cities naturally. So arrival of everything, which is why the capital of Australia is halfway between the two because they could not decide where to put it to avoid a civil war related had to had to avoid. That's great. Now you live in Melbourne and understand there's a lot of Greeks living in Melbourne maybe that's why you do tours degrees. Is there some connection there what's with the Greeks and Melbourne while the Greeks came to Melbourne after World War Two an after the Greek civil war which fetch -ly trashed all the great infrastructure and at the time. Metro will populate or perish, and they wanted to populate with Europeans and so the offer went out to Italians. Of various descriptions as populate Oh perished, I was the manager they were afraid that they would be swept away by the Asians from the north. So perish sort of a almost a racist thing populate with white people or we're going to be bowled over by this rising Asian hord. I. Think at the time that the policy was put in place. It was very overtly racist right and they will also terms that we use which totally unacceptable today and I can't use them already now either. So the the word went out and maybe perhaps the more poor countries in white Europe per day call and let Greeks went on there absolutely, and the time they were considered a little bit too small the. They really wanted white northern Europeans say Germans. Rather, than southern Europeans

Without the twentieth easily radio and online business in two thousand five James help loans, the first daily podcast from UK, radio station and the world's first regius station streaming. APP, he offers a truly international view is a bridge leading Austrailia witnessed companies across the world including North America. He's also a keynote speaker and consultant, and wrote his first podcast RSS, fading January two thousand five, and also launched the first live radio streaming at from eyeball finds in Cya. Importantly, he's worked in the audio industry since nineteen eighty nine. Welcome, James, thank you so much for having me what we only spoke last week. Your against on the podcast festival, a joint production with podcasting buddies mean to doll and safety. That was a law show with you. Questions thrown in a producer might. this week prerecord so will move a bit slow pice if that's okay, Hanna absolutely fine I'm glad you said that. Look I feel like running exchange program. You're a Briton stride. Yet I'm in London. What's it like in strider? The moment I hear a lot of the lockdown restrictions eliciting. Yes, Oh, they're beginning to lift him in. We can't so. I'm in Queensland can't go anywhere in Queensland. We're not allowed to leave. Leave our great state, although I state frankly is big enough, so that's all okay, but yeah things are beginning to beginning to relax I'm not quite sure what the latest figures were, but certainly we we've had one case one coronavirus case in the last A. Week or so here in Queensland so you know we're doing. We're doing pretty well rather better than you guys think, and you'll side pod news dot net which I encourage one to sign up for the daily newsletter. Have you seen increasing traffic is forecasting immuno thriving during this pandemic I mean pain and increase in the amount of people getting it, which is nice and the amount of people. Using it, but I mean obviously. There's been an increase in podcasting as well so actually in May. We saw a new record for the amount of podcasts launch, ninety, six, thousand, five hundred. So you know you can clearly see and yes, some of that is going to be Ju to coronavirus, and the fact that you can launch a podcast of your home and you might. You might be a bit bored or whatever but I think also part of that is just because podcasting is actually growing and quite a lot of those. We're going to launch anyway so you know a tremendous amount of growth there and suddenly podcast hosts of I'm talking to that saying that as as significant increase in the amount of you know in the Mount of people signing up and the amount of support Kohl's that having an everything else which is old boats, said good I. Think so why we're going. Here are the podcasting Stat Guru. but What what number of these podcasts will quote a sort of survive? I mean lots of starting up because people bedrooms when I go back to work and things you think there'll be some on jeopardy, or what sort of half life of a podcast series. Yeah, I think that's going to be interesting, isn't it? I mean quite a lot of podcasts. Don't last particularly long it. It has to be said. And you know that may be bydesign. May Be because people you know, realize that actually producing great audio is quite difficult. And you know and so therefore they can't necessarily work too hard on that I mean if you have a look at the amount of the amounts of active podcasts there while there are one point one million podcasts in apple podcasts, and about half of those are active, so that means that they've published one episode in the Pasta Ninety days so about how for the market about half of them are inactive, and that's I think actually pretty good in terms of you know they longevity of podcasting the that you know? Know half a million still being currently made. You know that said that's quite thing i. think often asked is podcasting the new blogging and you've been around probably as long as I have gone Do you think they blend It's it's not simple to do a great audio show, but you can actually say something happened and get your news thoughts out there, but is podcasting blogging I. Don't think so I mean I. Ingenuity. It's interesting. I, was talking to US talking to Turkish television last night, and you know and they were saying. Is podcasting growing and I think one of the interesting things around focusing. He's been going for fifteen years but it's been nice, slow and steady growth every single year every single year. It's been getting bigger. But what podcasting hasn't Betas is it hasn't been. A My space or a Bibo or vine? Hasn't you know a dramatically? Increased and then all of a sudden. Disappears again.

Yes incredible now. I've got three strains on hassle. I can always look at what other stuff. You've been doing a lot easier on. Usually just tolkien. I'd take notes but having the technology makes it a so much more convenient Your previous work with Avi A. I meant you went at Futures Forum which I think was a program that e sort of took laid on him put together Juwan explain what a futures form is and then. How does that work with Indigenous people because a lot of these terms and days a very foreign because we practiced these elements in different aspects of different ways but now with aligning so it makes sense in a in a Western context share. What a futures forum that works yes. Other futures will become that was born out of a of an agenda really engage with the future generation In terms of business economic sense and side what we've done is we raised Former colleague in MSL developed this concept.

You know second branding before but let's tackle this from a lot more direct results penalty ship. Let's start with what actual. What do we mean what is meant by Pestle leadership entity to me? It's a little bit unique combination of qualities and talents that making unique and different as an individual in order to enhance leadership that to me is what personal leadership identity. It's it's what are the unique qualities and talents that you have so unique qualities and talents that distinctive as an individual that tomase what a personal ladyship identities because his different types of ladyship so I did I wanted to demystify what the whole personal leadership identity mates and again say to him because it's the foundation of the rest of the fleshpots. He's at ease the combination of qualities and talents. That make you. Unique and distinctive as individuals keywords qualities and talents unique distinctive an individual and that enhances your leadership style Let me flow on that Intensive trainings ahead. You brains yourself as a leader. Well I've covered this before but I'll explore again in. The context of Of ANONYMITY ENDED UP PERSONAL LEADERSHIP. And that is the next full step. Step one explore your voice. Make sure that you have that. Inner Voice your great communicator. At whether it's one on one situations whether it's stages to a lot of people and that's a key point because a lot of people in leadership think that it's just good one on one discussions one on one communication skills all. I think it's just able to communicate too many people at once to me. Great latest what they really have that When the building a personal brand is they're able to school. The voice spoke one on one. But in a situation where it's one too many so that's one connecting east obscure yourself and then upscale your team that's what Personal you know the branding yourself as a leader is all about. That's a great strategy to have strategy number two is all about upstream yourself but also being able to US upskill attained. Because you don't want to build too much of a gap between self team so you not only going to be able to obscure be and be pestle development but you need to be a good damn good Developing your team as well number three is all about focusing on your expertise different expectations when you building attain leadership meetings that conducts. Think of yourself. You know when you're branding yourself as a leader. You'll that conduct a standing in front of the ban and you have a certain expertise to spotlight. Highlight what your expertise. But then also know what the expectation of the taints and by highlighting expertise of yourself in the team. You will ensure that you are branding. you're branding the team and again that makes you a leader in the number four. They're important is to always ask for feedback member. It was in the people business. Where the whistling product or service and it's all about connecting person to a product or service in different than when leading teams. So when you're working on the strategy to build your existing brand you have to have a brand is known to ask for feedback. Re Temperate. In order is to adopt strategies. That will help you amplify your personal brain. One explore your boys number two obscure yourself and your team number three highlight put a spotlight on your expertise and those of your teams and number four. Ask for feedback now in. What is a good personal leadership? Model well Ship is the ability to develop and utilize positive leadership traits. So you WanNa really highlight your leadership traits and then you want to guide the direction of your loss instead of letting others guard you now. That's what leadership is all about. It's the guy again coming back to the conductor. Great leaders others conductors in every conductor. You think if you research conductors of bans conduct on orchestra and you watch the videos youtube some you see that all of them have a very unique and distinctive different style. All mariah to get the band the follows to play to the bait of music and play the music that needs to happen so when not talk about leadership and leading teams by always love using the example them conductors and concert fans because everyone has different stops. I'm a more animated. Some listen but they will get the results and coming back to the beginning where we talked about uniqueness coming back to where we talked about you know focusing on different skills and they you have as an individual this is what makes you'll you'll build your personal leadership traits. What do I find the top five leadership skills and the people have someone? I've seen good leaders mid again. This is the leader of the constant pain. The leader of politics a lot of work around politics are CD's common skills. That I say that is honesty and integrity and sat dental fantasy. Always bill antic deliver bad news in pathetically but honestly and deliver good news with energy and passion and honesty. But it's always honesty integrity or fantasy number one number two inspire others. You have to have the ability as a leader to inspire everyone in the world wants. Inspirational seeks inspiration. We gotta have this tribe. It's very important if you want to build your brain as leader number three is be committed and passionate and if you're not committed and passionate things off until Quebec commitment and passion is the common denominator of resilience so if you were. The resilience is a common denominator of Gum. Commitment and passion. If you have commitment a passion you are resilient and as a leader unique to have that Resonance Nick. One is good communicator. You need to be an amazing Communica days. This is another gosh. If you can't communicate ECON late you'd go to get people to be able to march to the bait of your drum. This is something that needs to happen and number five is accountability. You need to have accountability and you need to demand can ability from your team so if you do these things these are what are fun of Obama. The skills set up the right lane is honesty and integrity. Which again is open to city number to inspire? Abbas number three commitment and resilience number four is a good communicator and number five is accountability. And I think if you look at anyone that you admire is a leader in any field whether it's sports whether it's in work whether it's easy whether Seattle whatever leave should whether it's a a Fatah great leaders people that have people followed them all have these five traits from and it's important because one of the three most important roles of leader to me. Well latest have to do different things. Depending on the year's activities we discussed because leadership is he personal bomb professional family life all asked to be ladies in different roles. Different responsibilities so that the three opinion a very common and to me. It's all about being able to envision it's all about the number correct follows and it's all about being able to execute so the three tasks of a later Matt whether it's leading at home at one co leading self is that you have to have a vision. You have to be able to get follow as to see that vision and you need to be able to and if you can do those three things combined with what I've covered in this flash costs than you will build your personal brain identity and remember that brain is what people say about you when you leave the room so if you really WanNa know what people think that your brain will think about you and I do this in in groups. It's a great exercise to. It's what people have to say that you when you leave the room. What is your your your emotional engagement your affect your impact on paper. What did I say about you when you the room? I mean a great way to look at it as eulogies. You can tell if you read people's eulogies you can tell what that personal brand of that fascinating back from the eulogy that the here but attacked people talk about them. How I relate the bathroom with I remember about what stands out about them. That actually creates the brand of that person so everybody that wants to create a brand and we all need to mush apple phone but in particular as Neal's asked in terms of leadership Minnesota important to go back makes about what we just spoke about and done an really align it to yourself. I remember that it's all about being unique. It's all about the different till about keeping it real to yourself keeping an authentic. These are the things that happen because you know we often talk about a latest night will born well to me it. Spotter you Latest can be made at any time. If there's a will so there's a will there's a way but it's all about surrounding trump with throughout paper and of course some people are naturally boom out of talents that others don't have however it's not one or the other you don't need to be born. Alita to become a leader. I think that people need to understand that leadership is all about having the ability to get people to follow you around and personal ladyship been able to really brain yourself as a leader comes down to understanding your self understanding your audience and attributing all the things that we've spoken about in this flash cast until next time gumby the Bishops Bay.

The astrophysicist and immunologist who've dropped everything for COVID19 - Science Interrupted Part 2
"So most of what I did was a combination of data software and statistics. This is astrophysicist. Dr Sam Hinton from the University of Queensland in January Hey submitted his PhD so I worked on Supernova cosmology and that's essentially taking exploding stars somewhere in the universe and using that to figure out how far away they and once you figure out how far away something is and how bright it is you can try and map out the history of the universe. Obviously things that are further away are further back in time because it takes time to get to us so the idea was if we can map out the last fourteen billion years of the universe ended expansion that hopefully we can try and characterize the nature of dark energy and dark Meta. That's my main eight right and obviously that's a problem. That's all about modeling and Statistics. So I created Asian hierarchical models and other sorts of models try and encapsulate all the nitty gritty details. That happened in the universe. In some statistically robust way so just a little way project just a tiny one that managed to consume years of my life. And whether that's because I just wasn't smart enough or whether it turns out that the Hamid actually really is complicated. Well I have opinions on both if only I was smarter. And if only the universe was simpler okay so taking on the entire history of the entire universe right there. So how is this? Astrophysicist and software engineer now suddenly found himself working on another big but totally different problem. The cove nineteen pandemic today on the show too young scientists who have had to rapidly retrofit and translate talents in an unprecedented moment in history. Sam Foreign doesn't shy away from a challenge. If he's name sounds familiar to you. That means you might be a fan of this stamp. Tonight's GonNa play out that I wanted to crunch the numbers for this other man to do it. There's computer I don't know if he's going to go hunt. I didn't even know. Cross was going to play his idol. New Sam was a popular contestant in the twenty eighth season of survivor Australia but bravado aside what use is an astrophysicist in fighting a global pandemic after all as far as we know now corona virus has made it into space yet and that's a relief as poor people on the International Space Station. There's no ICU. Up there what essentially happened was once I started getting serious. Everyone just put out feeling the same. We need help looking at a whole bunch of these tasks and this happened at Uku. Enriches where I work and through the grapevine. People said. We're looking for someone with all these skills and then Sam supervisor happens to be the acclaimed dark energy astrophysicist and TV presenter Professor Tamra Davis She's also passionate about astrophysics people using their research knowledge and skills in non astrophysics domains. So Tamra put Sam's name Ford The first thing was surely there are people that are better suited than me and salmon just accepted a job offer in the US at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. That's a big deal. But when Sam was told more he went back to Tamra and said. Are you all right if I just take months off from my actual normal astrophysics project to work on? This and her response was absolutely fine. Don't worry about it. We'll figure something out. Get on the project and do what you can. It was there was no chance that I was telling this down. It was a way to make a real contribution and astrophysics You know we don't make significant contributions every day to society we may every now and then invent something like the digital camera and was like yes. This is amazing but covet is a right here right now. One hundred percent immediate problem so there was absolutely no hesitation jumping into it so just like that. In a matter of moments Sam's life has suddenly turned upside down. Oh yeah if I thought I had long hours before. There's nothing like the current hours that we have to deal with. Sam is now the lead daughter analyst on a really crucial international project rolling out in real time in intensive care units across the world during this pandemic. And if you've seen the footage coming out of those units you'll know that this is a hellish frontier and what we need damage. Dice seeing young patients patients people of all age ranges. Who are just incredibly sick. And you can even hear now as. I'm walking through patient rooms in the hallway. It just your oxygen the sound of the pulse ox this ventilator later. Dan has joined. What's called ECO car? The global project headed up by trail-blazing intensive care specialist professor John Fraser from Prince. Charles Hospital in Brisbane AIKMAN COD is a mighty Akron Rod. It stands for Extra Corp. membrane oxygenation for twenty nine thousand nine novel Corona Virus Acute Respiratory Disease a card so when your heart and lungs can't do the job of oxygenating your blood and it. Komo machine allows that to happen outside. If you body. We want to know essentially. How can we best help as many people as possible? So we have very finite resources with this outbreak. We don't have an infinite amount of nurses doctors and ventilation equipment that we can just put everyone on so we need to know. Hey if if patient x comes through the door and they look like this but is the best sort of ventilation can give them if we just give them a mosque. Are they going to be fine or is this a patient that needs something more severe because a nurse can generally do around ten c-pap mosques so the very easy ventilation but if they have to actually mechanically ventilate someone help out the longest mechanically and it's essentially one nurse per patient and we don't have that many nurses when we have so many patients coming in so we really want to be able to say when someone walks in the door that they're probably going to need this outcome will be x? Y. Depend however retreat them. So when someone comes in we take the age we take their weight and then we need to know what other things do have do. They have high blood pressure Do they have diabetes? Are they smoke I? What is the condition of their lungs? There's so many things so many different data points that you can gather in the medical world ten thousand different questions that you could ask but what we have in our data time series so for two weeks after people. Get to the ICU. How are they red blood cells evolving? How of their platelet counts doing what we want to do is compare their outcomes and Dan data with other people other healthy people or people that have different afflictions so that we can say this is the thing that's unique about Karina buyers. This is one of the predict is here. That's different from anything else. And it's very hard to get that sort of time. Series data doctors and nurses are working around the clock to keep people alive. They're exhausted so around the world. Medical students are stepping up and being recruited to help collect the data every day. You need to be updating the data. And that's why we need for example medical students to come in because it is such a large burden if anyone is trying to also treat patients on top of that. We have around five hundred different variables from the different patients. And about a hundred of those we have information hopefully essentially every day that they're in ICU. So that we can see how they evolve over time. I can't say too much mall because whilst I have a huge list of variables in front of me things like pro calcitonin. I don't know how they used in a medical context all that I can do generate the reports and then worked with the clinicians in real time to say. What do you want to see? What would you expect to see? And how can I best present these models and this information to you so that you can draw conclusions from it? The urgency of the situation means. This is being taken very seriously. Clinicians are working in the dark right now with this new virus so they'll benefit from a Biegel clearer picture of what's happening for patients around the world. Oh Yeah it's absolutely unbelievable. I've never been involved in a project this lodge and especially in the current predicament. All the usual blockades and the bureaucratic slowdowns that you encounter have just been removed. So we have fifty countries now from Estonia to Kuwait to the United States is coming online the UK Italy Spain strategies coming online now two tons of countries and then each country also has all the hospitals in it. So we've got around two hundred fifty hospitals and that number grows every day.

Yeah Yeah I've got. I've got a few friends who were dealing with little kids. And just and I think plus like at least at home and here like they're really pushing the social distancing and only going for required things so at home a lot of people have been pushing back on the fact that they think they should at least be able to like go for a walker like there was a story actually at home about family members in the states who got find like almost nine hundred dollars because they were all rollerblading in a parking lot and they're all living together like their family and there's no one else in the parking lot and a cop actually took like whatever was bothered by this and told them they were supposed to be social distancing no more than two people in a group water and gave them a ticket for almost nine hundred dollars out my he is one thousand four hundred ninety four almost and yet.

Make Australia Gay Again
"Okay. Jeremy. So you found these stamps. They're clearly very gay What what's the deal like? Where do they come from? I've never heard of this Gay Kingdom what is it where is it and how can I move there? Are you messing with this? Jeremy is even a real thing. It's actually real and I've been working all day and night to find out more. I've called experts from the United Nations. The Council on Foreign Relations. I've made burner phones. My apartment's walls are covered and post it. Notes detailing epic story behind this kingdom yarn. Did you connect them John? It's GonNa ask the same thing. Yes it's required and after lots of law sleep. I think I finally have some answers. Hermit sexual people have honestly endeavoured everywhere to merge ourselves in the social life of surrounding communities and to be treated equally. This is an excerpt from the declaration of Independence of the gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the coral sea islands. A nation created for life liberty the pursuit of happiness. And all things gay well technically. It's a micro nation. So we'll micro nation is a place that declares that they are a nation but aren't recognized by other countries So it's basically someone walks out into their front yard and they're like my front yard is a nation In their mind they are their own country but they don't really have any recognition or any kind of Legitimacy in terms of the global stage this is Derrick Thomas. I tracked him down after he made fun video online about the gay and Lesbian Kingdom. I created a youtube channel. That has an ongoing series on micro nations and kind of the funny stuff that they get up to so there see land of land lower Malaysia. Lieber Land Danica in the Game Lesbian Kingdom of the Cross island. Derek told me that this gay kingdom was born in two thousand four when Australia passed a law saying that marriage was strictly between a man and a woman with gay marriage all the rage in America. The changes here a designed to thwart any similar attempts legal recognition. At Dav aside their community is facing a new wave way of homophobia. Here's John Howard. The prime minister at the time. The definition of marriage is something that should not a time potentially be subject to redefinition will change so in an attempt to protect against future gay marriages the law said marriage is by definition between a man and a woman and every single wedding ceremony in Australia. I kid you not that definition had to be like at your wedding you would need to say the words marriage. According to law in Australia is the Union of a man and a woman. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard in so romantic really but Derek said it actually kind of backfired and drew a lot more attention from activists about gay marriage than ever before Australia including one group in two thousand and four a group of gay rights activists who were attending the Brisbane. Gay Pride Festival Were frustrated with two thousand four marriage amendment act in Australia. They got on a boat. Well a seaplane That they christened the gay flower sailed it out to an island in the coral sea islands. Territory called CATO. Island planted a flag and said this is our country now Gay Marriage is legal. And that's kind of how the gain lesbian keenum of coral sea islands

Courtsiding with Brad Hutchins
"Welcome to no challenges remaining. I've been Rothenberg delighted to be joined by a friend on the opposite side of the world. Me In this episode Brad Hutchinson. Who is the author of the Book Game? Set Cash Previously worked in tennis. No longer does is currently a teacher who just came back from surfing on the Gold Coast in Queens so much as like a delightfully outdoor. Wonderful escape all of us are indoors. Nowhere near Surf. Mostly but Brad hope you're doing well and enjoying the weird time in the world especially can't be right now. Yeah absolutely pretty fortunate to be able to still get outside when a lot of people Locked in say how long lost four. I'm just trying to make the most of it will have. The opportunity is doing as during the tennis tour. Hiatus for doing stuff on different tenants and books and your book was one of the ones. I most enjoyed that read in the last few years. Game set cash and it all centers around the job used to have in Tennessee in Tennessee around tennis. At least I guess. Can you tell a story and get into the details of this? Moore's we go along but of how you I sort of founded employment opportunity with Tennyson with that with that presented itself as hey I heard about it. Yeah thanks man So I I heard about it when I was living in share house in London. This is tat over ten years ago. Now and one of the goals are linked with would always disappear and I didn't know where he was going. He's off to China or Russia. Row over these flung destinations and I knew that he had a job working at tennis. But I didn't really know what it was. It took a wall of probing to where he was back from his trips to to cigarette what he did and a real author while he was a cold solder and He was. He was flying around the world to these matches and report. The school was back to a group that he was working with the syndicate. Who would gamble on the tennis And a mad enough for profit out of it to be able to afford to send him around the world so you could sit courtside and have tickets to the tennis to all of the matches and and do that so a condos tested him to to get on board after all. Because I like the idea of getting paid to travel and Yeah it took. It took a couple of years for that to actually eventuate A few of my other friends who were in the Shea House kind of got involved as well and I went. I lived in Canada for wall and did some more traveling and then finally off it was. It was lucky Tommy just as I return high for a few years of travel. I got an email saying okay. You'RE UP WE'VE We've got a position in any modern for it so sin three resume Which is funny because I actually did have to do that. For a pretty informal job but Yeah they they got me on board. And then I worked as a cold solder for about two years Fulltime the tour is going around the world to different matches and they had the Tom Malakhov. Let let's pause there. Would you were sort of pestering. You're this. This has made ears for information on his job. What did he do? What did because I'm guessing? You had not heard of court citing before you talked to him so was it. How did he explain this occupation of his? And did it make sense? See right away. It didn't make sense to May straightaway at all. Because I wasn't much of a gambler. I love tennis but I didn't really have. Industry existed which is kind of what prompted me to write the book at the end of the role because not many do So he would bring home. These old looking finds that that they could be programmed differently. And this is back when you know I think the first couple of offense to just come out but not many people use them. So Abe was using these Kind of knock is and programming up and would have a program on the way you could transmit the school as if you had a school board on your fine so he would love. The schools from the stands sitting there watching the match That would go back. It would be linked up with the database in the UK. Go Straight back there and that would would get fade into the system and then it would be better pawn To build a physician and generally speaking people who are doing that are using bits as their website of choice. Bet they can back in light pleasant tron build a position and stay. Do better the correct Tom they can. They can put themselves in a win win situation which is ideal or they can go on. So you think is GonNa come through so Gradually kind of started to learn about this strategy. Involved in it the technology involved and the very con of Funny Little Game of cat-and-mouse that was involved as trying to avoid security and get away with doing it so just stop again there. So he's basically sitting courtside or sits in a tennis stadium. Radha tennis court somewhere at a pro tennis match usually on the main tour at a grand slam or sometimes the challenge against and will hit a button on their phone after every point to transmit the score somewhere else to usually to someone working at a computer at central office central location in that person than updates an algorithm which usually which which then informs how bets are placed and the Benny Market Bet Fair which is not like attritional bookie. But it's more I don't need to get. That fair is confusing. People who understand gamble too much. I don't WanNa get too deep into bet fair but that fairy as sort of a gambling market where people buy shares bet against each other. Yeah Yeah it's not your traditional kind of the House always wins situation. It's it's people betting against each other You know so they wanNA take a certain point in the match and someone else's put those odds up then they can Which allows for a lot more opportunity? And there's a mock there with a lot of liquidity lot of money moving and it's used by people around the world so it's become the main kind of area for people to who according t to us And Yeah We. We kind of did that. We had an algorithm lucky mentioned And that would that would automatically night decisions about how the bits replaced. So that's Pretty advanced Maths involved in that sort of things. I didn't get into that too much with developing it but I would buy feed the schools into the phone and it would fade into the algorithm and then the rest would get done at the back end so to speak where everything's processed yes Brought a big article about court citing featured you in a couple of years for racket and referred to it as like a really through adventurous data. Entry job basically. You're just sort of sitting. There added tennis courts somewhere in the world and I was in Brisbane. Is that right through your home. Tournament was your yes. My hometown was born. Brisbane said out was quite fitting. Yes so so. You're just sitting there. Just sort of talk through your day is of course setter. So you're just you get told what matches go to and you sit there and you just push a button. Every time a finishes is it that simple. We'd see the schedule of play. We'd pick which matches guy so usually there would be a few of us at each tournament and Wade Spread the matches between us. And then you head to court get ready. Sit Down if you want to say you're going to go to the baseline behind the plays so you can see you. Got The best view of where the ball's going You kind of have to plan ahead. Dykes half the time. You're sitting in the sun so you you got to wear sunscreen. GotTa Half Sunscreen in your bag. Go to have some food and water with you. Got To be prepared to just sit on courts. Have Long that much goes for you. Know if you're a grand slam that could be six hours so Yeah you kind of just get a good seat. Strap in and the you know you've got to be kind to people around you and chat to them if they're friendly but at the same time focus on what's going on in front of you and try and stay focus for the duration of that whole match even when there's breaks because if a player gets injured all goes off to see the training you have to be on top of that because pivotal right so the match swings in the bedding so is it fun. Is it easy is boring. I mean what does it like? Having to sort of push a button after every point and they're even even in a long match. It's it's hundreds of times a three-set matches probably I don't know roughly. Roughly two hundred points can be. Yep So if you've got a you know it can be mundane. You can have juice. The goes back and forth forever. There'd be set in place that would really bully. And there's other players that a scintillating to watch and that would really get sucked into it but at the same time you have to detach from just being spectator And actually do your job as well. So it's it's go mixture of everything you know. It can be super exciting if you're doing your best of three sets tiebreaker. You're on the edge of your seat every point and you have to be on top of that because it's it's really big money that's swinging big wise each on so you really have to be into it and then you can also have those moments in the day where you're just bored out of your Bryan. You've watched a million points of tennis in the last few days and is sick of it but you're also in a different country. Usually he's got a group of friends around that you can look forward to going travelling and kind of start seeing light of day and the. There's a lot going on so all in all it was a a really exciting kind of lost all but You know Lucky said at the end of the diets daughter. Intrigue Job and that's essentially the seating they clicking buttons and we used to call ourselves the monkeys on the button. Sometimes Joklik a monkey could do job but at the same time. There's there's more to it you have to really be on top of it

I said to someone with a woman attics woman in Germany so something to do with women very tired woman. Any woman woman ask. I'M A FEMINIST. But last night we played in Sydney. It's my first time in Australia. And when I arrived staying in Newtown in Sydney and looked up the best places for Lesbians Go Sydney the top of the list described as the Lesbian Mecca. Was You town Sydney? So can I just hold up there on the cultural sensitivity of Lesbian Mecca? Oh could we -solutely yeah decorate from the article so you have to send you a constellations? Ortis rental anyway after the show selling merch. Everybody in Australia is incredibly hot by the way. I'm not just saying that everyone is so hard is all of these whole quiz around the most able and we'll I was packing up the merge boxes. We're really heavy in our in front of all the quiz I lifted out myself and then as soon as they were gonNA jets carried by state. Jonah's Sarisi Razi. Jeff did it stop fucking so can I just say by the way sometimes and say you shouldn't do an Australian accent a because it sounds like you're taking the Piss and I really am not. I understand exit very hot because it was the accent all the boys hod when I was a teenager. All the Boise didn't fancy me. Had that accent so I still find it hard and actually this is what. I'm focused butts and off piste one. I'm FM'S BART MY YOGA TEACHER IN. Bonte the other day. Holy Hell and he had that real like he's no one. I'd I'd sort of marry on for a site but he's there was something about that. Real surfer dude wouldn't be compatible with him and I talked me long term. I mean for an afternoon. He was really times really sort of that blonde. You know and he was so yoga re as well and he kept like coming and when they sort of readjust. You adjusting may write a firm. He was quite strict and I was like dude. I'm a FEMINAZI. I am a feminist Bart. Today I told Grace Petri that she was Kohana which he'd Australia is. The Lesbian version of what a gay man refers to as bad. She's like a little kid Koala. She's furry like hair on a heads she's like. This is not what I thought. This is going to be so. I just thought I could see even intrigued stock. That is not a thing by the way you should say here in a lesbian bar. Nobody calls anyone a Koala made up the spoke for you bought. I feel it could take off. Koalas seeks Queens. Clemencia can't Kency break. Let's just one piece. I'm a feminist but when I was nineteen I was on the TV quiz. Show the Weakest Link Yeah. Did you watch that much Australia? Was it presented by Anne Robinson here? I'll fuck. This isn't gonNA work. I think it is. I think it was very. She was very young uptight meaningless woman and her whole thing was she insulted people so I went on the show and I didn't get very far off in the second round but in interrogations people who voted for me and Robinson this woman. Why did you vote for grace isn't because she's younger and prettier than you? Fuck you fuck Jane. You always remember the names the ones that bullying song about. Can you sing off that tonight? The only bit I remember is a line that said it was Jane a Secretary From Suffolk. And why she voted for me. I don't give a fuck. I've gotten better is very how cintos nineteen reeling has. She's come on in leaps and bounds. I'm a feminist but yesterday I sincerely said the sentence genuinely in a discussion backstage at the Sydney. What stops me from sleeping? With Barack Obama is my loyalty to Michelle where I live. Sometimes I just didn't that moment I was like no because of Michelle because of our friendship. We were on the same bill. We spoke of the school together. She didn't see me is because we'll speak. She had so much security around her and he got another or you don't you don't have to. I'm a feminist anything that stops me sleeping with Michelle Obama's loyalty to Barack Obama
The 2020 Virus Crash, the world is shutting down, keep healthy, cheer up, we will beat this
"Lots of change of course since the last time you were with me on the show as after news for you wonder what will make you very happy. United. I know. You don't fly united but if you were to fly again united as asked cabin crew to controlling to dimming windows of the liner essentially say allow the passengers do whatever they want these goal. I mean I understand why they dim them at certain points of a flight on mass. So the whole cabinet atmosphere changes especially when it's supposed to be time to to sleep what? I get frustrated by than when they're locked that's what management that it has to do not lock the system. Essentially I wonder if they're able to restrict the DIM nece. So if you say you can. They're unlocked but they can't be fully open which I would kind of understand. That would certainly a piece people like me. But that's interesting that they've had such volume of feedback that they've made that change exactly or they just listened to layovers. That's that's more likely exactly the second news I hinted at it in the intro did about you is that. Berlin seems to be happening actually happening because thunder as actually scheduled flights on October thirty first. Which is the opening. Apparently the soft opening date for a full opening November eighth. It's pretty unbelievable. You set yourself that you were not believing and I wasn't believing it either but it seems stupid will open I. I don't know why it is changed times. It's interesting. There is a third party setting a date for their moving as opposed to the airport authority or anybody on behalf of the airport saying this is going to be the open day. It's it's an airline saying this is when we're going to shift and it's all their operation right. It's not it's not just a test. It's this is when we're GONNA start flying out of that airport and remember when we did both of the airports of berlin-tegel and Schoenfeld lift as it doesn't fly there. They send eurowings. I mean does Fi of course but I'm wondering now if we will actually have proper operations as Frankfurt in they don't they don't really so far so I I still cannot believe it. I mean I don't watch. I just can't believe that he's going to happen. And you know we running Joe too was was going to arrive. I Will Italia Fail I. It seems that they will never fail. Will the Max Awry? I A berliner. After these two are still in contention the Mexico to arrive before Berlin. I duNNo. It's very because with strange times. We'RE LIVING. I don't lie about answer window. So there on office and depends on Crete where you sit and Jeez. I want to give up to Andrew. Curran is a writer for a site that we both read quite often called simple flying and so quoted us like mentioned us which is very nice. Exactly that okay. Because we were saying like who's going to be I you know the Max or and well. He said that we did. Put our money onto Max coming. I was still have a shot of that Andrew. You're basing northern New South Wales in Australia. I I'll show her friends will maybe having a strap. Is it coming up at some point this year? Maybe maybe so into you will have it. His favourite airline is a Singapore Airlines. Here you have very taste I was gonNA say fair enough. I'm just wondering what's Your airport. Because you say northern New South Wales Brisbane is probably close to you. But that's already Queensland believe so which one is it Andrew? Just reach out to us and thank you for for listening. And since I'm on simple flying they also have a podcast. It's a very cool podcast as well. Everybody's doing podcasts Alex.

Nba would you recommend this? And if so which city in our line? Well Man Rudy going to Rome today not sure. I don't think that here experience. If you quite what you hoped it would be the. What would you do for when if all this stops because Italy for those? Who Don't keep track of isn't a full lockdown. So I mean I know that Ryan ourselves fly Suzanne set from Rome but besides that I think no one flies there. Would you if you weren't? Us would you fly direct with a? Would you prefer a barrier via Madrid? I know our love for Narnia and or we e throw with. I don't know the long haul product. I don't really know the shorthaul product either so I don't know but between the two I would still go a in premium an above but be a in economy. Yeah and if you really want to stop so meaning if as out of the question be. I think it's still a better choice in because you will not be changing terminal in Saudi throw. You'll be fine. Yeah passing so I. I know some people might disagree. But and it's not that we don't pay you better. I think the whole product I've done because I've done to Madrid three forty I think. Yeah it's okay. There's ochre like looking at each other as the be a business for instance but it's it's okay. I think still better. So how's your flu Alex? Well just waiting for the inevitable. I can't do this all any of us can do anything. Yeah exactly it's it's so strange man. Up China Eastern has introduced a new coronavirus glass. Oh on top of visas. Glass preemies coronavirus. The last three row after starboard side off their aircraft will be reserved for those who show potential signs of sickness. Now it's not called the coronavirus. Plus that's me actually making that up but they are actually segregating a bit of the aircraft for people that might have signs of sickness. I I don't know how it works but yeah people that develop the symptoms during the flight. Surely you shouldn't be traveling if you already have this and maybe an epidemiologist would be able to tell us if this is complete waste of time it feels like a complete waste of time. Yeah I said in my very long intro in the previous episode I'm sorry guys it was thirty minutes of renting that Yeah you should be flying if you if you're sick even James Von for crying out loud is my God. I'm like I'm so unhappy about that. That was you. Were not traveling. At least seeing James Bond like a month would have been called but no we don't even get get oil. You can't go. I mean people are not supposed to the movie theater anyway. That's what we're doing right now. Alex Social Distance. What exactly I don't know man. I I think I have a lot less apocalyptic view than this or more A. There's very little I can do about it. That's true however I think that's that's very true. I'm being mindful as not being panicky and I. I see people being panicky. I think that I mean we'll come to that. Actually know what planes it becoming the safest place for social distancing because they're at and the prices are dropping some of the. I mean I think what we see on. Social media is the extreme cases where there's four people on a flight to wherever it may be but the data is now emerging to that showing that these these flights are tanking. And you know now. These reports are coming out. That airlines are running virgin. Nba running empty flights. Just to keep the slots alive gump to that. Yeah Yeah it's not. I mean I think it was of all of the industries that could suffer the most initially. Who knows what the future holds travel and particularly airlines. We're going to be the ones that got hit

Australian toilet paper truck catches fire sparking new tissue tizzy
"I can't figure out the toilet paper because I went and looked at stories about the concerns about the they they the lotion I see this story I'm fairly worried about being told to stay home to avoid spreading the new coronavirus Australians have been buying toilet paper as faster stores can stock it saw a fire on a semi trailer rolling through Brisbane this week was especially concerning but the loan wasn't a total loss according to Australia's ABC toilet paper is quite precious at the moment so we've been able to save half of the load on this particular truck the truck was on a bridge at the time the driver was unhurt is that interesting the amount of toilet paper that was saved that was mentioned before the fact that the driver was unhurt officials suspect the mechanical problems sparked the blaze the shrubbery Sydney said that everyone has just gone a little bit crazy that shopper buying forty eight rolls of toilet paper one person begins a stock up and then everyone begins to do an the shopper who's from California said that she was taking a half of her bounty to friends who were having her over for dinner that night is that the appropriate thing to take to a friend's house you get invited over for dinner so you bring over your own toilet paper that we don't use theirs thank you bring over a little bit extra for them to be able to keep for future use so she bought forty roles she's taken twenty over to a friend's house toilet paper
Kirsten Alexander and Tara Mitchell
"You remember a stray? In the nineteen seventies. There was Martorell against the Vietnam War. Gough Whitlam became Prime Minister. There was free unions. Eucation and Helen Reddy was singing. I am woman our author. Kirsten Alexander was only a young girl at the time. But I do welcome you back to publish to not. I'm so glad to be here. Thank you second book. Fantastic being older than you at this time. I also remember Queensland being a bit of a backwater job. Joke Peterson disallowed gatherings. There was censorship and real stories about police corruption. And this is why. I'm going to get cursed and to start off by reading a bit from page. Two hundred and seventy seven. The book of the back of the book were starting at the ending. This part is spoken by Abbey. Who's one of the two narrators abby? And her brother. Charlie tell the story and riptides and Abbey's at Queensland University on campus and she says the students want change. They're hungry for it in other parts of Australia. People struggling to keep up with change. Feel like the hurtling into the future without helmets but out premier has dug his heels in and is resisting every attempt by the federal government to civilize. Queensland Peterson makes it clear. He loads students feminist darkies homos and communists he laughs at the media while sales estate over seas developers every bit of beach front and any land that can be mined and looks away as heritage listed buildings bulldozed in the dead of night. It doesn't seem to matter that he's barely able to string a sentence together. He rules with iron fisted resolve. Ooh This is a little bit like now. You mentioned abby husband. Mark is one of your characters. What's his job marks a TV journalist. And he's he's very political in nature and at that time. I think it mattered. I wouldn't say more than ever or certainly not more than now but it was very important. Queensland have an alternative voice There was an alternative voice in the radio. That was footer. No actually for troubles. Ed didn't exist at. This point. Came later but it was very important for the media to offer an alternative to what was being told to the people by the government. Yes so marks. A bit of a celebrity seen on the news of filing reports. He's also the husband and father but has the mate. Jim Tell us a bit about the dinner party. The party was when Abby and her husband go to Jim and his wife's place for dinner and I again. I'm I'm not sure that things that happened in the past. Don't don't just keep happening forever so this is probably something that could have happened last week. But Jim admires mark because mock santelli mocks famous. And he's got an audience and the women have to just play not groupies but they just have to sit and listen while the minute mile. One another and it's it it gets Abbey's Gart because she. She loves her husband. She admires his work but she knows that. There are a lot of people out there doing important things in hospitals and schools and making roads and cleaning up our garbage and they don't get this kind of education and of course you know Jim. Thanks his wife by giving her pet on the bottom for making a Nice Pavlova Louisville's leader attitude to women going back to union to finish her law degree. What does the Father Think about this? Well I think we can get accustomed to read from page one hundred one as the father said it was enough your mother nothing to scoff at. Its dignified work to take care of you. Home husband and raise a family and this he goes on so the father talking to his daughter says well. Why do you want to be a lawyer? Then what are you trying to prove? Martin's a good salary. You'll make life harder by being at university now. You have kids to look after who are doing that. I suppose you expect him to as well as his job. So you can go off and do what you want. Which by the way he flicks his hand angrily in my direction. Plenty of lawyers in the world without you. You don't need to show off now. Her father has also very distinct views of what son Charley is doing. What is he doing? I'm Charlie leaving his best live. He finished Uni and then he mocked around bit and took off to Bali where he serves and he Works in a restaurant. There aren't very many around that time a he and a couple of nights. I've been to cafe and Khuda near the beach pen. Just hasn't a good time. Sorry you know his his comeback and he knows he has to talk with his father but he feels that he's really grown away. Well let's let's get his point of view from page fifty six. Oh God I hit my reading drawing people mental Okay so Challenge wondering about if he went and had a beer with his dad. Would that be like what would we talk about how incredible it is to surf the endless breaker Illawarra to mind altering after mushrooms would he fades as chickens? We've reached the age where he wants my approval more than I want his. Which makes me feel kind of bad for him and makes him boring company? Every says he's worried about me being directionless but I reckon when I talk about my life in Bali his out of his depth maybe even jealous makes me tired to think about it so he has no this this mutual disrespect. I think between this the Connection Between Wartime Charlie surfing and abby very comfortable in knowing her skills in water currents the title is riptide. What's retired? I think a part of growing up in Queensland Brisbane is not on. The coast is a familiarity with water. We have to learn to swim very young. I grew up in Brisbane. I'm not sure if that was the same down here but we had to learn to swim very young. We spent a lot of time at the beach and going to various off the coast. Islands stride broken bribery. And so we all know about rips which are dangerous because it's the water pushing and pulling at the same time and you lose control of of where you WANNA go. So water is very important in Queensland Life I think and the idea of different forces pulling your round seemed to make sense to me as well as the memory of the father is a teacher and he teaches them about physics and Abby remembers learning about every action has having a reaction and Charlie talks about Karma so how these two lean. I'm I'm not enough of a philosopher to explain the difference between Action and reaction and and Action IN CONSEQUENCE. I guess calmer and the laws of motion but I do feel that. The idea of motion having consequence is yeah so on Australia. Day Nineteen seventy four. Ed Behead to cancel the neighbors neighborhood gathering. What can I be doing stand? There's there's a flood so they need to go rescue the neighbor. Louis Abbey's best friend and Louis envious of Abbey ability to be supermom or is she. You have happy thinking about the flood from page twenty eight right. This is This is after the flood is gone and flood slave a lot of Damage in their wake. The flood wasn't part of my plan. Not Part of any once. These few days will derail us for months. I know now that I should have recognized the flood as a warning accordion. Everything I thought I could control was uncontrollable life. Insistent persistent was about to take on new shapes Shimmery and unpredictable as petrol on a wave with giving you back story about all of this but the book actually starts on Friday the sixth of December Eddie has picked up Charlie from Brisbane where he's flown in from Bali and they drive into the file this farm. It's number of hours away and now Costa Alexandra's going to read the first paragraph of her book. Riptides Charlie is speaking. I wake when shots she reaches across man grabs the Steering Wheel. A cow honed. Braise white beams flare at us then pitched to the right for an instant? A rump of blue metal shines into the headlights. I elbow my sister out of the way and take the wheel leaning back hard so don't Slam my head into it. Abby flattens her hands against the dashboard as I break and strain to control our sideways skid. She screams my name. We sling to one side of the narrow dirt road and the other cast links the opposite way like wrong ends of a magnet made to meet we swelled to an angled stop pointing into scrappy land. So what happened This isn't giving away. Don't WANNA rate 'cause this all happens in the first paragraph right into it they. They've caused an accident as I say because there are two people in the car but obviously there was only one driver and they were both asleep. Both the driver and the passenger were sleep in. The car forced another driver off the road. Who was pregnant and she does her. There are police involved and Sergeant Roberts certainly wants to solve the mystery because they is a mystery. What's the mystery of the car accident? AGAIN. I I worry about giving away too much. But the the mystery is who was the woman and she what. She didn't just die in the car. She was outside the car she she was when the police found her she was lying on the ground in a way that makes no sense to them. She couldn't possibly have fallen that way and her window was down and there was a storm afterwards so none of it makes a lot of sense to them and they figure out fairly quickly that someone took her out of the car and Leho very carefully on the ground so there is the mystery and pick up the father bring back to Brisbane but he becomes the suspect lots of tension in the house and I wonder how the book will hold this because we know about this everything that's happened in the first paragraph and sort of you know. Mark is job as a journalist. He picks up this tension and then he's called away. Why Christmas Day? Why why not cold away. So he's moved out of the out of the household so we have a release of a little bit of tension for a little while. What happened seventy four Christmas Day? Oh I'm I'm Which which were we hitting. Sorry just cyclone Tracy sorry. Okay Yeah just to yes. There is a cyclone up north and our so he off to that and these. Epi feels leave with the self and her dilemma. It will make my life worst and possibly destroy the lives of everyone around me if I tell the truth. Better to hold it in and manage the pain now. This is Kirsten Alexander's great rotting that she can move the plot and still carry the tension oil very
Gardening the Permaculture Way: How to Create an Abundant Perennial Garden
"Guest today is Morag Gamble. Founding Director of the PERMACULTURE Education Institute Morag is a permaculture teacher and designer based in Queensland Australia where she lives in a permaculture eco-village when Morag is in educating or designing. She can be found in her award. Winning Garden Morag has taught permaculture in twenty countries and is the host of the popular. Youtube Channel are permaculture life. Welcome to sustainable World Radio Morag Gamble. It's so wonderful to have you here with me today. Thank you Jill. It's lovely to be here to today. We'll be chatting a bit about your no did guard method. Which is really appealing to me. Is the Lazy Gardener. Then we'll be discussing some of your favorite permaculture plans to put into our new garden beds or into pre existing gardens fantastic. It's one of my favorite topics. I think the ninety got any something that has just ever. Since I started doing permaculture gardening ride in the early days when I helped to get the north St city farm going in Brisbane about twenty five years ago the neither method was something we started doing there. Because well you couldn't actually get anything into the into the ground OUGHTA shovel. I think you used a pick. It would bounce back. Army way was up and that time every almost saying. Let's do it this way. Let's do it that way. And so we tried all these different methods and over the years. I've evolved this particular way that I create the ninety gats and I always do my God C. Span. I've used this method around the world and is kind of a bit of a twist to the way that I do that. I think it's an interesting part of it to explore because I think it makes all the difference. The four we embark on that journey. I just wanted to ask you for your definition of permaculture in case we have listeners here thinking what the heck were they talking about? Wolf Ame- permaculture is essentially all about design and my simplest response would be designed for regeneration designed sustainable living. It's about reconnecting with nature and living a more simple low impact life and surrounding ourselves with Wonderful Food. Great community doing things in a way that a regenerating the US Amer generating communities regenerating ourselves to. Because it's it's we. We're in a process now. I think where we need people. Who have they kind of? Healing the planet so permaculture Regeneration as well seems like your life and work are all about permaculture and I did read online that you discovered permaculture as a teenager so permaculture has been a large part of your life for quite some I I was at I remember at when I was in high school. I was sorry passionate in as a as a peace activist. There's a lot of things happening at that time. There was the I think. This should notable incident Though at the same time cities. We're getting captured by massive dust storm so the landcare movement was studying. There was all these massive movements happening around me at that time and I spent a bit of time kind of being a peace activist and an environmental activist. And I. I still call myself that but I got to a point where I was feeling that was fighting against something all the time. And and a lot of babble on you see me coming and turn the other way. She's going to start talking about that again. I E to I you know what I may not and so I. I was really looking for something that was that was a positive solution art. If it's not that we don't want that world what will do we want. I remember my my parents. Kinda brought us up in a really natural and and You know a really low fleet locate life and my dad was always reading about coach and he kept handing me this book. Saying you've gotta you've gotta read this. This is this is where it's at and I think it was because of that I ended up going doing Landscape architecture and Environmental Planning Union. I always worked it through what I was doing. And yes so it's kind of being there guiding and and I guess driving in a way what what I have done with my because it made so much sense. It's just really good common sense and sometimes we we overlook the things that seem to be the most simple approach thinking that they simplistic will actually think it's not. It's they often the simpler approaches. Which can have the more profound impacts on a mock sensible to more people? Yes definitely and you know you took your skills as a landscape architect and you created this verdant using permaculture as well but created this verdant gorgeous oasis. I believe your garden has over two hundred plants. Can you tell us a bit about your garden? Your climate and where it's located. Well I'm I'm in subtropics. I'm in the Jaffe of of Australia Dole. I'm on the East Coast and about halfway up the coast of Australia. So about one and a half north of Brisbane and a place called Crista waters which is a permaculture village. And I've been living here for about twenty years this this place. It's an amazing place. Actually because we have six hundred forty acres. That is the Chris. Awards and within that we have one AK- that we have the tower owned freehold title so most of the land is common land for forests for the Rypien Zion's this kangaroos hopping around everywhere and wallabies and platypus. In the rerun. The other day almost bumped into an occasional wounding through the bushes and it's this beautiful natural oasis with surrounded by National National Park. And so this we have a group of about two hundred people who live here and and and work together in different ways. You know From little cow collectives to cafes to All different sorts of things. It's quite an ECLECTIC group of people. And all different ages and backgrounds at last count sixteen different nationalities so krista waters in itself is an interesting place and it has received a United Nations World Habitat Award for demonstrating low impact. Sustainable ways of living I think was there the tag back in the nineties. And so within that context. If it's kind of like a place where people look to come and see what does Pimco Timothy Look like? What does it mean to leave a culture life? Because I think and that's the reason why I'm here I. I came here in the nineties because I realized in e conscious be talking about. Penta cultural people need to see it feel. It tasted touch it experience. It see how it kind of looks what does it. What does it actually man and I wanted to explore that too. So that's what I've tried to create he and we built around hyme And we've created Dot Gardens in the whole way of life that we have here to do that and it's and it's turned out to be this beautiful thing. I didn't have a full plan when I started. I had those guiding behind it and so of being able to create we have a higher Menara Garden and I work with gotten a debt. It's just been an starting out from that point. I actually think the no debt thing has been a huge thing. That's been able to free up a lot of the possibilities for creating this so Gradually just saving up a bit of money and and building a little bit more building a little bit more finding local resources Engaging with my friends and my family to help us build and my house is almost finished. It's finished enough. You
Belonging with Yassmin Abdel-Magied and special guest Mariam Khan
"So on a feminist but a small part of me believes. I don't deserve a summer. How boyfriends unless I have the pedicure. I can't leave the House with open. Toed Sandals and my nails alike. They haven't seen sunlight for eight months. And the cubicles are growing like not actually can even see nail and then you get to the cell on and the lady at the cell on looks at you with a look of where have you lived. What if your feet seeing i? Just it really stresses me. And that's why I'm like. I'm really glad this house. A ferry per se. I specifically them done because I was coming here. And I'm like people will see the nails and the thing is nobody would have noticed then. I would have apologized for them. And then they would've looked and they'd be like. Oh Yeah I'm really sorry. Moving right along Hugo. I am a feminist but I'm committed to always smelling of citrus. I like when people like. Oh your natural odor. I'm like I do not want natural odor. My natural order does not belong anywhere in my vicinity. And if anything I sweat baby powder I was thinking about where this came from because I have about two or three showers a day right and also Muslims wash with water to the Louis Wash with water and so we like to be clean. I remember what I must have been like. It was the first time I had a little bit of armpit hair. I was like seven or eight right. I was like growing out of places for the first time and I sat next to my mom. It's a hot day in Brisbane. Brisbane is humid. Right and my mom's sniff Tucson is that you know who and I've been citrus smelling ever since. I'm a feminist Bart Win Grace. Petri told me that she couldn't play the role alcohol because she was already booked to headline a festival and she couldn't get out. I actually physically actively hope that that festival was going to be like the five festival so that it would be cancelled and she could come and do the road alcohol every day. I thought hopefully hopefully having to refund the money. They panicking running around behind closed doors. Thinking can we give everyone money-back hopefully hopefully the five was the wildest like I think. Early a white man could pull that kind of bullshit all types. Nobody's giving everybody's giving some Muslim woman named Kadija that amount of money now. So excited they are they monitoring just to definitely pull off that many but if a Muslim woman name Cathedral did run a festival the food be lit right. There is not A. I'm GonNa give you some Styrofoam. No you're going to be rolling out of this so say did you don't eat for a week. I'm feminist but I went head to head with politician in Australia. She's like a well-known politician for racism and xenophobia. And you know she was sort of saying Muslims need to be deported. And all this sort of thing and went head-to-head in this video the clip of US went viral right. I got like twelve million views in less than a week and everyone's like messaging me and be like yes. We're so proud of you standing up Islam Blah Blah Blah and. I saw this video everywhere. My my family in Sudan was sending it to me and so then Bailey has internet and they were getting it through right. It was huge and every single time. I saw that video the only thing I could think was. Why did I wear that health? Fuck Sake I like had paint. I had like this white blue and yellow headscarf and then this like multi-colored black and white shirt. I'll say nothing matches. Nothing matches you face. Glasses that charge wrong set of glasses for that headscarf style like I was on my period. I've been on my period for like a month and so it was. I couldn't I couldn't see the colors. Probably nothing spe- early. I keep people keep referring back to that video and I'm like never leave the house in Alpha. You don't want to go viral right way. Great advice never leave the house in an outfit. You don't want to go viral
"brisbane" Discussed on Real Food Real People
"He's back but it was In so they they yeah eating locally having but also like sourcing in these unique quake that was a big part of of what they were doing And and yeah especially in the last couple of chefs Jason Franey in the now Brady Williams uh-huh They were focused on on more sourcing locally and and specially when Brady came along that was that was a really big change. Engine focuses like How do we how do we source more locally and really champion what's going on here And so yeah I had been working working Under Jason Rainy The the previous chef For a few months and then he He left to a restaurant down in California. And they're we are kind of without a chef for little interim there they ended up hiring me on As a cook and I started cooking there And then a little bit later Brady Williams was hired and started with us And and so I started as a cook underneath him and then Relatively quickly lead. Just I'd I'd come in and was working on a lot of my own projects You know coming in a couple of hours before my shifts and working on dishes that excited me and just just trying to keep finessing those skills and and exercise that creative piece before. Would you just have to do when you're before a twelve hour shift of of just like executing food stray that's very Just very routine. It's it's nice to have a little creative outlet before that so I've been working on that baton he and I just he's he's very very creative and very artistic And I have more of the scientific approach to things and so he and I just had a a very symbiotic relationship early on and And so he would often you know as I started working on projects project was like chef. Chef we try this and he'd be like okay. Yeah this cool but like I would add this ingredient and it would be like oh I never would have thought of that. Because that's like so obscure Ray and what kind of stuff. Oh Me yes love to have an example. Yeah so I can start to get hungry right well like I I mean he had You know it'd be like I'd be working on a dish with I don't know now you can never remember all the dishes now You know it's like maybe you're doing like duck and and you've got like some classic sauces or like a classic pairing of some sort Sweet Cherry Chutney or something like that and in you. You know you've got some sort of Greens on there. And then he he tries and he'll be like you know what this needs like. Mola which is like a traditional oaxacan From like a southern Mexican style sauce that has like ground Pumpkin seeds and chocolate chocolate. And all these heavy spices and and like the farthest like you wouldn't traditionally think pair Duck With Molay and Cherries Ray A. and so I you know maybe it worked on this dish and gotten it to a point and he would come in and and basically you know say like Oh it needs this and it needs that that you know maybe you should add some some soil leaf oil or something like that and so then I could go back and work on all of that and and you know make those changes and and you know find not not only a way to make molay but maybe spice it up a little bit do something a little different put some flair on and then you know bring it back and it would always be dialogue of well. Add this take this away you know and and we just had a good relationship because I was very you know always documenting always always making sure that everything thing was was very linear and just step by step by step by step and scientists the scientists and he could just come in and and in a good way like rub the the you know. Wipe the table blanket and kind of Throwing new things are And so we we just had a good relationship that quickly league. He quickly promoted me to sue chef and I ended up doing the running the menu development piece as a you know he would. It was the two of US I mean. People often chefs. Don't have the luxury of being in the kitchen. Day In and day out. Because I mean what I mean they're essentially. CEO's what is what people don't realize like we call them chefs but they act more like a CEO. Oh so it's like they've got a right. Schedules do financials and all these other pieces that I'm sure all of I'm sure farmers are very familiar with it too. Because they're like oh you just get to spend time with cows all the time. They're like I I could be a CPA. You know it's like if they really you know because they have all these other skill sets and it's like well the so it's the the chef always has to delegate a lot of these tasks to everyone else and so I got to. I had the joy of doing the menu development and then the fermentation and focusing A lot more on on like how from tation can affect flavor and how it can make things delicious and that was a really fantastic rabbit hole to dive down and so oh This this fascinates me. Yeah always wonder what what goes on behind the scene. Yeah do they come up with these new menu. Autumn's yeah and what does someone who's really creative in the culinary arts do in a kitchen like that granted it's fine dining so that's going to be probably more risks. Taken and newer. Things tried the average restaurant right. But still you gotta you gotTa you know make sure that the menu items are available all and that Kinda sorta the meat and potatoes of. You're feeding the customers day in and day outraged you actually get to play around. So it's interesting. You say you were actually coming in early. Initially yeah for sure so you you have to be pretty darn good at this to get where you got. Yeah well I think it was. I mean the. It's one of those things that like when you're doing it it doesn't seem like a new idea because you'll be kicking you'll you'll do you know hundred integrations of something and in each one of those. There's just a tiny little step that doesn't seem like a genius idea right in in between those one hundred iterations but then from going from zero to one hundred someone coming in from the outside. They're like they only see that as one giant leap. They don't see that as one hundred tiny steps and so people they do they come in. They're like oh that's genius. Doesn't feel genius. Feels like a lot of work and so and I think that's true in any industry so you know it's like all these tiny little steps and then all of a sudden people come from the outside and they're like well. How did you ever think of that? And you're like well two years is how I thought of that. You you know like a of actively thinking about this problem and having ninety nine bad versions of this Or incomplete versions of very least and and so that's But yeah so that's where I think again. The scientific approach because in science. You're not really looking for success. You're looking kind of for failure. Oh you're always and and how do I disprove hypothesis and And you're constantly working against yourself in a way And so that's Mike creative quote unquote process is really just about Tearing down what I did yesterday and making it a little bit better in on some level in and then having good oversight From a chef that knows when when it's ready and so you know and not and then also just keeping you know the staff motivated and but yeah there's there is. I mean the difference really from like a fine dining place that puts effort into something like that because it I mean it eats through a lot of time and everyone who owns a business knows that time is money and so so just being able to have the support to say I mean it's also part of their they of course have to invest in that because they can't just keep the same menu in a year in year out so there there it is out of necessity that they have have to put that money in on some level but but allowing allowing us to actually take the time. 'cause it's like you'd have to. You still have to run a restaurant restaurant while doing all of this. And that's the difficult part an answer. Those people were like this meal cost me a hundred bucks. Yeah I could go down to the store by this all for fifteen. What's well you're paying for? All of that develop that development and the art in the atmosphere and all those other things that go into that equations. Absolutely really yeah which which does make it like. I mean I that is why like on some level to me like the pinnacle of off food development is is being able to mass produce that creativity on on some level and being able to say like okay. I can create something that's well sourced and delicious and all these other things and I can produce a million of them and it'll cost you five bucks you know I like that to me is like oh my gosh. That's incredible like the. I'm so glad I had the time to just like purely be creative and have the customer pay for it you know and and then being willing willing and excited about sharing that experience of like this is truly cutting edge but now it's a to me. The next step is like okay. Well how do we produce a million of them. Because that's how you can create that big impact. What did it feel like though being in that creative world I mean Eh? You're coming through. Culinary Art School in Seattle going to countless be pretty high on the list of yeah people go things they WANNA do and being being recognized. And I know you've won awards for your involvement there What did that feel like to start to get into that really get into that world? It's exciting it's fun it's consuming assuming is probably the best way to put it In a way you know consuming in in is both really exciting. Because it's all you think about all the time but it's also draining on all the other areas of your life when you're consumed by this single piece and so It is. It's very fun. And it's it's there's a reason it's like high burn out is because it just like it. Can it consumes everything in for all the good and bad in that But it's it's very very exciting It's it's a Lotta work honestly and it's and It's all it. It is difficult like we were talking before we hit record what about the necessity to constrain creativity. And what that does and I think that's so important and I think that was I mean having adding to run a restaurant while being creative is Is One of those constraints and in the you know. It's like Oh what. What is this Disney? Does it need like more cinnamon in this molay or more pumpkin seed and then the you know a cook comes up to you. And they're like chef halibut. Didn't show up and Like I don I what are we going to do. And you're like torn out of that world of like you know it doesn't matter which of those because you need to find a source of how all of it right now. Someone needs drive across town and pick up halibut and get their car all smelly because you know because we need it tonight because it's on the menu and and people are expecting it and so there's always just like on one hand. It's like really fun to have those really creative moments and it's like you you get you know. One of those are two of those really great creative moments a month and then you just get the normal months amount of like problems of of just life. But that's also just I mean that's what that's what life is right So so it's but it's definitely fun and it was a good good team there. I mean like the the sous chef team was fantastic. And so there's there's four of us I was it varied from time to time time but You know kind of each with our area that we ran and and and I got to you know kind of play point on some of the menu created created or on the menu development and fermentation and stuff like that. But but it's a team effort absolutely and so You it's fun to be part of that team where everyone one is kind of obsessed and consumed with it. Not something that everyone gets to do. No so it's very much like you know being part have a winning sports team or something like that where it's contagious. And it's fun. Even though it's long.

Living on a pretend beach the someone shoved on the edge of river. If you've never been to Brisbane, which I hadn't until yesterday. There's a basically there's a river. But you don't wanna go in that. So instead, they just built a pretend beach and put a swimming pool next to it when that's basically the sea. And then they, you know, they got the ice cream vendors and all that kind of thing going, then I am a fan of beer. So I started yelping breweries around there. And I found one I'm just gonna plug places. I like in town, you guys get free plugs found tipplers, which is a nice bar that had some great beers. I saw those for their for. So that was right up. My alley which was a beer festival. Kickoff pool party. Straight over to pool. I spent four years swimming in a pool in New York. This is meant to happen. I found out that I had a comedian friend in town. So when did a gig. But. Priorities. Very different priorities. I have my addiction, and he has his. As I hold my Citre here in my hand. But I wanna plug Bruce Vegas, which is kicking off next month. And is a beer festival. I wish we were here for that. But at least it got to come to the pre party in the pool where I knew nobody. So I was just drinking a quarter of a pool. Ten minutes is the creepy guy. Then I'm just going to brave the waters, speak and talk to somebody the first people I talked to were fans of the dollar. They know the same people. We know Dave Anthony, in fact is Ben here. I don't know if Ben came what are the host of a podcast called vista that you should check out. Was there you guys put vista fans. It's a small community of podcast or a big community of podcasts fans here Felix. So. And what else did I want to mention about? And then we then we went to idea my Geoghegan, then we met up off was when we went to lefties. That's right, recommended go to left east to see live music, Shannon. Shannon's to the band Boeing Boeing. Because they were fucking greats. I'm hitting they was straight up. We just walked into the bar. They. They just like these guys also from Kansas originally. And now they hated. I hated shirts. Those guys are straight up allergic to shirts. Yeah. You got to see some good music and some excellent nipples. Because some good sweat-drenched nipples as well. They really giving it some onstage, and that's what I'd like to see. I don't like to see join them music.

I was I went with glorious empire did. Yeah. It was it was between him and heart to heart to me. And I do not understand the the stormy liberal. Thing. I mean, that's just not a championship division for now. I vote for him for sprinter than I went melter force for stormy. I did. Just anyone else deserved it. Or I feel like. Say this again with all of the turf racing in this country. Now. Until they get an award. I have to give them some just in a war. They are. Eligible for. Force Jeter force more consistent than him this year. More consistent. No. But I I also don't feel like he was. I think to do it sprinting, I wouldn't have a problem person. This is personally if it were just a while, you know, like, oh, if he did this, again, we'd be talking hall of fame type of campaign. I didn't think that I just thought he was the best sprinter, which is fine. But I just I see the race glorious empire one heart to heart. I prefer it. Even with the two grade ones that that to me, I thought long and hard about Robert Bruce. But just I couldn't the races other than the million weren't good enough. But. Those I hear what you're saying. I do think that they are eligible, and I am not closed minded to voting in that direction. I just need to see a much better. Just sorta historic campaign out of that division. I like the fact that he won the Breeders Cup back back. The fact that you ran one of the fastest racist of the weekend.
