Ever wondered what it’s like to be the black sheep? Or have you always known and owned who you are, strived to find your people and pursued your passions ferociously from an early age?
Kerri Glasscock is an absolute baller!! Growing up as a kid in a small country town NSW, Kerri craved a career in performance arts and moved to Newtown as a teenager, Sydney’s hub of arts, music and culture, so that she could attend the Newtown High School of the Performing Arts amongst her peers. And she flourished!
Flash forward to 2019 and Kerri Glasscock has been the festival director and CEO of the Sydney Fringe Festival for 8 years, has run artist-run Venue 505 in Surry Hills since 2004, a director of City Recital Hall and is the co-chair of the City of Sydney’s new Nightlife and Creative Sector Advisory Panel – a panel that was set up in 2018 to provide advice about supporting a thriving, diverse and safe nightlife in Sydney. Keep Sydney Open!
Kerri and I enjoy vast ranging chats on the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast this week,from the growth of Sydney Fringe Festival and its 10 year anniversary in 2019 (September 1st – 30th), female entrepreneurship and the business of the arts, Kerri’s real life creative, philosophical and business inspirations, a Bondi Beach x Newtown super suburb and much, much more.
Kerri Glasscock is down to earth, a business person that makes things happen and one of the most inspiring people that I have podcasted with in quite some time!
Ambitious, creative and tenacious black sheep get the job done! Let’s get into the show!

Welcome to our exclusive Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet show with RUOK? Campaign Director Katherine Newton.
Men account for 75% of all suicides in Australia and RUOK is a suicide prevention charity in Australia created to drive meaningful conversations with mates and loved ones to save lives.
On our 2nd consecutive university lecture at Macleay College in Sydney, we chat extensively with Katherine about this Australian suicide prevention charity including:
- The evolution from RUOK? Day from a campaign into a 365 day-a-year suicide prevention charity.
- The approach and 4 Simple Steps you should take that could save someone’s life.
- RUOK’s ongoing partnerships and their staff buy-in with the likes of Hungry Jacks, Virgin Mobile, the Australian Government Department of Heath, Commonwealth Bank, NAB, Country Rugby League.
- Key steps everyday Australians can take to generate conversation and help raise awareness in their own physical and digital communities.
- Techniques & Meditation Apps that you can use to manage your own mental health.
- What to do if somebody says they’re not okay?
- The psychology behind Choosing A Call to Action – make it simple and get people participating.
- RUOK education and mental health projects with:
- Australian children in primary schools and high schools.
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) sufferers – Ambulance, Paramedics, Police.
- RUOK? Day 2017 – Thursday 14th September.
For me, as an individual who has experienced the death of one of my best mate’s brother by suicide and my own family member who has experienced their own mental health issues, this show cuts deep and it’s was just wonderful to spend time one-on-one with a senior representative of an organisation like RUOK, who are making a daily positive impact on the lives of thousands of Australians.
Fascinating and insightful chats. Let’s get into it!
