Along with a team of clever, quick-witted and talented women, I’ve started working on a new project. A passion project, you could say.
It’s been quietly baking for a little while now. Just needs a little bit more time in the oven before laying it out for everyone to enjoy.
Part of the preparation was to hang out at the ABC Sydney studios and attend #OzPod2016, Australia’s inaugural podcast conference. #itsatoughlife
And with that, I also introduce Her Radio – an independent podcast network by women for women. Brenda Emma, Maria and I are going to share personal stories with a level of depth that, dare I say, I’m a little nervous about. But these nerves come with the package of taking big risks. I’d rather take the risk than leave it to regret…and silence.
And that, I discovered is the beauty of podcasting – the extra dimension entirely left open for vulnerability and intimacy. A chance to go deep. Very deep.
Highlight of #OzPod2016 was the conversation I had with the man of Conversations himself, Richard Fidler. It kinda went something like this…
Me to Richard Fidler: We’re both ANU (Australian National University) graduates!
RF: Oh, really? Yes but I’m sure I was there much, much earlier than you were! I graduated 1995…
Me: I was 1998!
RF: NO! You look so young!
RF: Right then, lovely to meet you. I’m off drinking!
Check out that stupid high school girl crush grin.
So, I’ll leave it here for now. Like any good baker, I’m going to stop opening the oven door and just let things rise. There’s a whole lot more on the side to prepare but hey, feel free to join the ride.
We’re going deep, people.
