Victoria Cross recipient, Boeing strategist and business leader, Mark Donaldson and I got chatting at the Beard Season launch with Jimmy Niggles, Hamish Blake, Wippa and a bunch of other revellers a few months back and bonded over a cheeky beer or two on a tall ship on Sydney Harbour (hence the nautical theme of the pics below).

For those who have listened to my Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! episode with Andrew Hansen from The Chaser, will know my passion for my grandfather, whom I never knew, his service in the Middle East and PNG in Kokoda in World War II, the importance of ANZAC Day to me and understanding (in my eyes) what it actually means to be Australian after my trip to Gallipoli for the 85th anniversary of the ANZAC Day dawn service in Turkey in 2000.

Corporal Mark Donaldson, VC is an Australian soldier and a recipient of the Victoria Cross for Australia, the highest award in the Australian honours system.

Trooper Donaldson (his rank at the time) was a member of the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) when he exposed himself to enemy fire to protect injured troops and then rescued an interpreter under heavy enemy fire in the Battle of Khaz Oruzgan during Operation Slipper, the Australian contribution to the War in Afghanistan. He was presented with the decoration by the Governor-General of Australia, Quentin Bryce, in a ceremony in Canberra on 16 January 2009.

On today’s show we delve into vast-ranging chats including Mark’s earliest ever memory, his work with Boeing, happy memories of Afghanistan, the people and experiences that have shaped his outlook on life.

Super inspiring chats. Let’s get into it!

Beard Season is a yearly event dedicated to Jimmy Niggles’ close friend, Wes Bonny, who died in 2009 of cancer just three months after being diagnosed with melanoma. 
 
The following winter Jimmy Niggles and his mates played what is now an annual footie game in memory of Wes and in 2011 grew their beards in his honour through the winter, in an event they dubbed Beard Season.
 
Beard Season evolved has over the past 5-6 years into an ongoing campaign to spread the word about how important it is to check your skin for abnormalities that might lead to cancer only a yearly and to raise awareness of what to look for, particularly as most people, myself included, don’t know that the most people at risk from melanoma are blokes aged 18-45.
 
On Wednesday night just gone, Jimmy and I sat down at for a Bronte Beach sunset of red wine, cheese and dips and recorded a podcast about skin cancer, Richard Branson, Graham Norton, the #MillionDollarBeard, dreams with dates & much much more.
 
It’s inspiring to think that what was an event set-up to commemorate a good mate & top bloke,   has grown into a global phenomenon and it was just wonderful to spend with an individual who is striving to spend a large chunk of their time making a positive impact on the lives of others.
