    A reason, a season or a lifetime.

Today's guest is a woman by the name of Samantha C. Ross.

    BONUS: Rick Morton Was Born Into Rural Royalty. Suddenly, He Was Dirt Poor

    30/12/2020 Duration: 01h06min

    We're dropping into your feed to reshare a special episode of No Filter with you. Earlier this week on No Filter you heard from Rick Morton, all about money. Well, if you’d like to hear more about Rick’s back story, here’s a chat Mia had with him a few years ago about his remarkable life… Rick Morton was born the son of a cattle baron in far western Queensland. His backyard consisted of hundreds of thousands of acres. He went to school by school of the air. And his family home was 500kms from the nearest town. But in just 24 hours, Rick’s life went from being something of an idyllic outback childhood to poverty. So how do you go from rural royalty to dirt poor? What’s it like growing up gay and closeted in a small town? Rick has written a book about his life called 100 Years Of Dirt and he joins his old boss, Mia, to talk about it...

    Rick Morton is a journalist and author. He’s also learnt to memorise phone numbers. Specifically ones from debt collectors. Because up until recently, Rick was very bad with money.  So bad, that he used to borrow from everyone around him.  Rick was born the son of a Cattle baron in Central Queensland. But he grew up dirt poor in housing commission, and he’s spent his life overspending the money he has. His new book On Money examines the meaning of money to him and others, and looks into how society often views money as a substitute for morality.  This is Rick's story.  THE END BITS: You can check out Rick's book On Money here - https://booktopia.kh4ffx.net/1m6Jz.

    2020: The Year Of Little Griefs & How To Process Them

    23/12/2020 Duration: 32min

    Christmas. It’s often talked about as the most wonderful time of the year. But at the end of an unspeakable year, it feels like we are all crawling to the finish line that is Christmas in 2020.  And for a lot of us, it’s filled with a feeling of grief. Grief for a year we didn’t have. Grief for family we can’t see. And grief for those we lost.  Two years ago I sat down with grief counselor Petrea King to talk about how to face Christmas when life is not as you know it.  She’s counselled over 120,000 people who are living with cancer and other life-challenging illnesses, or dealing with grief, loss, trauma and tragedy through her foundation, Quest For Life.  And because this year has really been life as we don’t know it, I thought it was time to talk to Petrea again. About grief. And about lowering the bar this Christmas. Because it’s okay not to be okay.  Here’s Petrea.

  • What Happened To Stan Walker

    What Happened To Stan Walker

    06/12/2020 Duration: 39min

    When you think of Stan Walker, you probably think of Australian Idol, and that catchy song ‘Black Box’ he released straight after he won it in 2009.  Stan was 18 when he started on Idol, and 19 by the time he won it. And to most of us, he was just Stan Walker from Australian Idol; the boy who made it big.  But what we didn’t know, and what we wouldn’t know until years later was that there was so much more to Stan’s story. Now, at 30, he's a survivor in more ways than one.  Just a heads up, this conversation deals with family violence. If you or someone you know needs help, please call 1800RESPECT now.

You're homesick? You're celebrating? What you eat when says a lot about you, about your culture, your taste, your family, and what matters to you. Food is so much more than just fuel, it’s an excuse to express who we are and what connects us. What I Eat When is a Mamamia podcast that’s all about meals, moments, and memories. And on our first episode host Silvia Colloca is joined by self-confessed 'Crap Housewife' Jessica Rowe.  So what does Jess eat when she's on holiday? Or when she's pregnant? And why does she match her hats with the dinner she's making?  Although she doesn't like cooking, as she explains to Silvia, she still likes eating. And food holds a lot of memories for her.

    Inside The Life Of A Secret Alcoholic

    02/12/2020 Duration: 29min

    For the past 5 years, today's guest has kept a secret. She’d wake up and start drinking to get through the day. She’d leave work for a coffee break and buy a bottle of white wine. She’d consume roughly around 80 standard drinks, within one week.  Heidi first sought help in 2018 for her alcohol addiction but she didn’t tell anyone.  Then last year she came across a call out on social media looking for people to participate in a free six month program if they were struggling with addiction.  So she applied.  That program would go on to be filmed for SBS’s documentary series Addicted Australia.  And all of a sudden, Heidi’s very private addiction became very very public.  This is her story.

    The Day Shanna Realised She Was An Alcoholic

    29/11/2020 Duration: 58min

    What's the difference between a party girl and an alcoholic? For today's guest, it was about 20 years, a series of traumas, and a large dose of denial. Shanna Whan finally realised she was in serious trouble when she 'came to' in the Emergency Department after being found crumpled and bleeding at the bottom of a flight of stairs.  You see for a long time, like many ''high-functioning'' alcoholics, Shan convinced herself it wasn't a serious problem because she was a successful business woman by day, and didn't drink until ''after five'' ....  Growing up in rural Australia, heavy drinking was a culturally ingrained and glorified rite of passage she embraced wholeheartedly .. to try and fit in. But it wasn’t until her rock bottom in early 2015 that she knew she had to reach out and ask for help and take action, or die young. Fast forward six years, 15,000 volunteer hours, starting over from scratch, endless failures, knockbacks, and opposition - and now Shanna is the founder and CEO of a national charity ca
