So, Perth talkback radio station 6PR interviewed a notorious anti-vaxxer on Australian Perth radio this morning, in regards to the newly implemented No Jab, No Pay legislation. It wasn’t good. If you missed what No Jab, No Pay involves – here’s a summary. So despite many of us feeling… …I’m wholly unsurprised, because if you’ve got radio producers who are pressed for time (especially during these odd seasons, when usually they’ll do some good research when it’s not a public holiday)… Read more

I’ve been looking over my calendar for early 2016, adding events and plans, and it’s led me to check back over the past 12 months of achievements and activities… and there’s been a lot! From the very beginning of 2015, it’s been a mass of radio shows, podcasts, fringe events and big events, travel and work. Focusing my energies on projects and events that reach a broader demographic (rather than wasting time and even hard-earned money preaching to what can… Read more

A couple of things: Survey! This is just a fairly general demographic survey, to help improve both the Urban Legendary and Token Skeptic podcasts, and also to get some useful demographic and broadcasting information that I’ll pass onto other podcasting groups on Facebook. Here’s the address: I’ll close it mid-January, but until then, please pass on the link and fill it in if you so wish. And another podcast episode for December: Urban Legendary #14! The winners of the 2015 Prime… Read more

It’s one of those songs that guarantees people phoning/emailing the radio station to tell me they’re in tears, but happy ones. Here you go and seasonal greetings to you all! Read more

Token Skeptic #211 is now out on the Token Skeptic podcast site. It’s one of those little goals that I’ve had for a while – to interview the Welcome To Night Vale podcast! The show is doing a live performance in Perth early next year, as a part of their Australian tour, and I was fortunate enough to speak to Joseph Fink about the very popular serial set in a community radio station in a desert town… Which is a… Read more

Just in the in-box – along with the talks by Richard Dawkins next year, it appears another popular figure in the skepto-atheist sphere (is that a thing? Maybe it’s a thing. A thingy-thing) is coming to town: Perth International Arts Festival is delighted to announce musician, actor, comedian and writer Tim Minchin has joined the stellar line-up of Western Australian artists for the epic celebration of landscape, culture and community, Home. Home is one of those things they talked about… Read more

Around about this time of the year, White Wine in the Sun gets a lot of airplay. Here’s something new. Go to to find out more. Here too is the making of the video series: Read more

So, I’m up very early, sorting out my laundry (aka, throwing things into bags and dealing with it later) – when I get this alert: In case you’re not familiar with Van Badham (yes, you should go read that link, then come back here…  or just watch this: …done that? Good. She’s been on RTRFM’s The Mag a few times (e.g #I’llRideWithYou) and also Breakfast with Caitlin, which is the big breakfast show that features on Perth’s most socially-conscious radio station…. Read more

It’s been a busy few weeks, so here’s a quick rundown of what’s been going on – and here’s the podcasts too! Urban Legendary 13 – a lot of content from the live radio shows I’ve been doing on local community radio, RTRFM! Including some vox pop from a protest rally held in my town about the new freeway they’re trying to get going… and it’s not going so well for the developers. I also spoke to author Nic Holas is… Read more
