‘Becoming Colleen – Finding The Shoe That Fits’ podcast with Ian Thomson.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #206 Becoming Colleen – Finding The Shoe That Fits (Writer, Director & Producer Ian Thomson).

‘Becoming Colleen: Finding the Shoe that Fits’ is a documentary about an 85 year old transgender woman, transitioning from male to female in the coastal community of Coffs Harbour on the NSW mid-north coast. Having lived most of her life as Colin – a husband, father, policeman, film-projectionist and self-declared shoe fetishist, Colleen has had to negotiate her gender transition later in life.

More than a documentary about the transitioning of an elderly transgender woman: this is a story of Col and her wife Heather: two people whose love transcended their gender roles; a small community that comes together to support a woman in pursuit of her greatest dream; and how finding exactly the right pair of shoes can be a perfect fit.

On today’s show, my close friend Craig Mack and I interview writer, producer & director, Ian Thomson, who with the support of Queer Screen, Acon, STC and Documentary Australia Foundation, has pulled together this most beautiful and evocative journey that touches on so many important social issues of our time.

Not only does it shine a light on the world and life of a transgender lady growing up in rural Australia and the challenges that she faces along the way, this is story of inclusiveness, being true to yourself, spending time with and cherishing the elderly, evolving interpersonal relationships with friends, family and strangers, demonstrating the need for understanding, striving to learn from and showing empathy for people in the world around us, especially if they view the world a little bit differently to or approach life from a slightly different perspective to us.

It makes me proud to share this work of art and I hope you that enjoy this story as much as I do!

The ‘Becoming Colleen’ Sydney premiere on Sunday 24th February thanks to Queer Screen as part of the Mardi Gras Film Festival.

“It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen” 😉

With 2.6M+ plays of their ‘Lonely Cities’ single in the past 7 weeks since it’s release and their 2nd SXSW appearance in just 2 years, Tigertown are taking the world by storm. Very exciting times!

I’m almost certain that one of the key reasons that Tigertown are one of the hottest Aussie pop acts floating around the music scene at the moment is that they are family. The band consists of 3 siblings and a husband and wife – and the way that they interact with each other when together just warms my heart. Cheeky banter, supportive and loving all at the same time.

In today’s thoroughly inspiring and enlightening podcast, we explore the impact that Johnny Cash, Michael Jackson and their dad have made on their collective lives, each of their earliest ever memories, Spotify, Apple Music and music piracy, travelling in Rajasthan (India), mastering your craft and staying true to your dreams.

And did I tell you about the ‘Lonely Cities’ EP? Wicked uplifting jams perfect for that beautiful, summer road trip! Get on it!

And let’s get into this podcast!

CLICK HERE to listen to the podcast interview in full via iTunes.

With the sexiest funk of bass jamms & soaring lead guitar riffs, Harts is born of what could be the music love-child of Prince and rock & roll legend Jimi Hendrix.
 
Indian-born and Melbourne raised Darren Hart AKA Harts grew up on the dirty streets of St Kilda, Australia, the son of two wonderfully, gifted Indian athletes.
Today’s podcast is an inspiring tale of a guy who was contacted personally by Prince off the back of his YouTube success, being flown to Minneapolis in the USA to jam with Prince for a week, travelling through India, record deals, his brand new single ‘Peculiar’, a brand new album coming out in June and the empowerment of being your own career and brand.
 
This is a bloody ripper! & easily one of my best podcasts yet! Let’s get amongst it!

Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet catch-up with ex NBA Dallas Mavericks baller Chris Anstey.

PODCAST – #68 Chris Anstey (NBA & Australian Olympic basketballer)..

CLICK HERE to listen to the podcast interview in full via iTunes.

You never know who’s watching. Be ready.
 
Here I sit. 10km above the earth, USA-bound on a jet-plane, 12 hours from touch down at Dallas Forth Worth International editing this week’s podcast with goal driven, ex NBA Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls & Australian Olympic basketballer, Chris Anstey.
 
7ft tall and a world of experience. Chris Anstey didn’t start playing basketball until he was aged 17 and then in his first match filling in on his brother’s team, scored 52 points in one game not knowing that there were 2 scouts in the crowd. And the rest is history…
 
Despite all of the accolades and championships that he’s won as a baller, what some people won’t know about Chris Anstey is that prior to basketball, his first love in sport was tennis – a promising young Australian tennis player, Chris peaked as the #2 ranked junior in Australia of his age-group at aged 15, played with The Scud AKA Mark Philippoussis and was doubles partners with champion AFL footballer Dustin Fletcher.
 

Blessed to be welcomed into Chris’ home through a mutual friend of ours, Chris and I spend the hour talking about his open, honest & pragmatic transition from tennis to basketball, what it means to represent Australia at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, leadership, understanding your team and each individual’s style of learning so that you can help them raise the bar for their own skill-set and aspirations, beating Michael Jordan & the Chicago Bulls and much, much more.

Let’s get into it!
