Coming up…

March 22: SHINE for Kids
Dennis van Someren … in conversation with Bill Kable

Dennis van Someren is getting the word out; we have a crisis in the community, a crisis involving some of our most vulnerable children and one that impacts on all of us. Governments have responded to concerns about crime rates by building more jails but at a cost of $292 per inmate per day the numbers are frightening. And with children of prisoners being 6 times more likely to end up in prison themselves you can see the problem. Dennis through his work with SHINE for Kids is doing something about it.


 March 29: From Poppy with Love
Dr John Killinger … in conversation with Bill Kable

When Anne Kathryn Killinger’s A Son Is a Son Till He Gets a Wife: How Toxic Daughters-in-Law Destroy Families was published, it helped kick-start a growing movement called Alienated Grandparents Anonymous. Then Anne’s husband, John Killinger, followed on with an absorbing trilogy of letters to their grandchildren in the hope that they will one day read them and understand more about the lives and dreams and personalities of the grandparents they were prevented from seeing. Join us in the studio to hear John’s inspiring story.


April 5: Help! My Son Hates School
Janet Allison … in conversation with Bill Kable

Boys are disengaging from school at an alarming rate, and that disengagement is already affecting boys’ futures. Males are now less likely to attend college or secondary school, and less likely to graduate with advanced degrees and job skills, than females. This ever-growing gap has already begun to limit boys’ earning potential and community involvement – to say nothing of the despair many boys feel daily, trapped in schools that don’t meet their needs. 

Educator, Janet Allison, joins us to talk about the issue and what is being done to combat the problem.


April 12: Men of Honour
Glen Gerreyn … in conversation with Bill Kable 


Poor decisions can bring the life of any young man unstuck. It can take years to recover ground and can leave them burdened with lifelong consequences. 

Glen Gerreyn provides a Young Man’s Guide to Exercise, Nutrition, Money, Drugs, Alcohol and Sex, Pornography and Masturbation that will equip them to make the right decisions and powerfully aid their transition from boy to man. 

With the male psyche in mind Glen encourages and inspires young men to take up the challenge to be honourable whether at school, in sport, at work or in relationships.
