We discuss chapters 8-14 of the eleventh Albert Campion novel by Margery Allingham. While committing some form of espionage he's probably supposed to know about, Albert Campion is shown the grand scale of the Bridge Institute's power, from dozens of lorries gathered in a cave, to powerful remote detonators that could change the face of warfare. The investigation is upended when his budding ally Superintendent Hutch is told Campion matches the description of a man who fled from a city hospital the day before. Unable to prove it wasn't him, Campion goes on the run, trying to solve what it is he even needs to solve.

Today I am speaking with Steven McRae, Principal Dancer with the Royal Ballet, London. Steven grew up in Western Sydney, in a suburb called Plumpton, 45kms West of Sydney. His Dad was a drag car racer, and no one in the family had ever learnt to dance. But somehow, dance found Steven, And at the age of 7, he asked his Mum and Dad if he could start dance lessons and he enrolled in a local studio around the corner from home. It was a life changing decision. By 17, he had not only won the Genée and the Prix de Lausanne, he was standing alone in London having been accepted into the Royal Ballet School—his heartbroken mother on the plane home. In this beautifully candid conversation, Steven talks about his journey to Principal at the Royal Ballet by the age of 23— and that, it's not all as it seems; he speaks about early bullying, crippling home sickness, not always fitting in, and devastating injuries.But Steven speaks of more than that; he talks about starting his own family with his wife Elizabeth Harrod—also a dancer at the Royal Ballet, his post retirement plans, and the moment he snapped his Achilles tendon live on stage in front of 2,500 people, and how he climbed back from the impossible, to perform with the Royal Ballet once again.Steven continues to perform as a Principal Artist with the Royal Ballet in London, all the while juggling life with his wife Elizabeth and their 3 children Audrey, Frederick and Rupert. If you're in London, the Royal Ballet is back on stage, for show times and tickets head to roh.org.uk, and to follow all of Steven's adventures, you can follow him @StevenMcRae_Steven and I recorded our conversation remotely, with Steven dialling in from London, while the podcast recorded on the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation, to whom we pay our greatest respects.Production dream team ✨Hosted by @byclaudialawsonProduced by @fjordreviewAdditional Production @clinttopicSound & Editing @outputmediaStudios @brightsidesydney@sawtoothstudios

With interest rates, mortgage debt, and housing prices rapidly surging, many Australians wonder whether and when the bubble is going to burst… The question is: how can property remain affordable without causing a price crash, especially when two-thirds of the population are owner occupiers? Known critic of modern economic theory Steve Keen joins us today to reveal everything mainstream economists get wrong about the property industry. He shares his insights on the possibility of a property crash and how first-home owners might be vulnerable. We also discuss the rising level of household debt, what it can ultimately result in and how the government can intervene.

To be good at cyber security you need to be able to think like a threat actor. That's according to state-based cyber warfare expert Dr Sarah Morrison, who has herself embedded herself for the last 20 years in the technology and cybersecurity industry.  No surprise then that Sarah is always the one at dinner parties reminding people to use secure passwords and update their anti-malware. What is more of a surprise is that Sarah - who has no less than seven qualifications in the area of criminology, investigation & intelligence and cyber security including a PhD in Russian Information Operations - left school in Year 10 to get an office job. As she tells Claire Braund in this podcast, “I fell in love with computers around five when my brother won one and brought it home. At school we didn't get to really use computers, but getting an admin job I got to use one!” A few years later a book on criminology piqued Sarah's interest so she went back to school and on to study the subject at University of Western Sydney. Sarah works across the government, banking and higher education sector. More recently she has stepped into the cyber consulting and advisory arena in ASX and other organisations. She was recently appointed to a WOB Advertised advisory committee in the higher education sector because of her very specific cyber skills. In this podcast Sarah talks about how she keeps in with the fast-moving space of cyber security and intelligence, the threat of large-scale disinformation campaigns and the role of AI and why boards need to put cybersecurity “front and centre”.

Her voice is incredible… I just love how raw that one is.” -Karla Ranby, Triple J Imogen Clark is an AIR Award nominated indie artist from Western Sydney. Her musicranges from intimate to arena-ready, rock anthems with the soul of a confessional singer-songwriter. She is currently halfway through her mammoth 100 Shows in 100 Days tour. An artist who regularly performed 75+ shows in a year, Imogen has barely managed 20 over the last two. Even that number is a testament to her determination to do the only thing that for her makes life worth living – coming together with other people to put her heart on her sleeve and exhaust herself physically and emotionally making music that will move people. “I don't know who I am when I can't do this,” she says. “It's not just a job, it's what makes me feel alive. That connection with an audience of strangers, where you don't know somebody but you know they feel how you feel, and with the people on stage bringing these songs to life with you, my life feels empty without it, so it's time to make up for lost time”. The shows have also allowed Imogen to road test new material, including cathartic belter ‘Nonchalant', which she headed into the studio to record between shows after the song became a standout live favourite.

Eda Gunaydin joins us today to talk about Root and Branch: Essays on Inheritance (NewSouth, 2022). Lots of themes: Turkey, Australia, Sydney, family, friends, media, food, essays. That there is no easy translation for ‘awkward' in other languages suggests that I'm only myself in English. This feels like a loss, because I'd like to think of myself as Turkish, too. There is a Turkish saying that one's home is not where one is born, but where one grows full – dogdugun yer degil, doydugun yer. Mixing the personal and political, Eda Gunaydin's bold and innovative writing explores race, class, gender and violence, and Turkish diaspora. Equal parts piercing, tender and funny, this book takes us from an overworked and underpaid café job in Western Sydney, the mother-daughter tradition of sharing a meal in the local kebab shop, to the legacies of family migration, and intergenerational trauma. Root & Branch seeks to unsettle neat descriptions of belonging and place. What are the legacies of migration, apart from loss? And how do we find comfort in where we are?

CARING FOR PEOPLE Prof. Patricia Davidson didn't plan her path to the top, but the skills and experiences that she obtained along the way are now proving invaluable for the newly minted VC. First trained as a nurse in the 1980's, Patricia's learned the importance of patience, empathy and communication at the bedside. But a love of learning ultimately drew her away from the hospital and towards an academic career, working across a slew of Australian universities including Newcastle, Curtin, Western Sydney and UTS. Throughout this period Patricia developed an outstanding research track record in cardiac health, chronic condition management and patient-centric care. It was this reputation that ultimately saw her elected as the Dean of Nursing for Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore (USA) where she was destined to help this storied institution confront one of the most dramatic and transformative public health challenges in living memory. Patricia returned home to Australia in 2021 to take on a new challenge as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Wollongong. We hope you will enjoy this incredible perspective on personal growth and compassionate leadership.    GUEST : Prof. Patricia Davidson https://www.linkedin.com/in/patricia-davidson-a6023414 UNIVERSITY OF WOLLONGONG :  https://www.uow.edu.au/ EON LABS :  https://www.eonlabs.org/ HOST : Prof. Marc in het Panhuis https://www.linkedin.com/in/marcinhetpanhuis/ MUSIC : Purple Planet Music https://www.purple-planet.com Mixed by Dr. Nat Harris
