March 21: Diving into Glass
Caro Llewellyn … in conversation with Bill Kable

Ten years ago Caro Llewellyn was living her dream life in her adopted home of New York. A keen runner it was while running in Central Park she suddenly lost all sensation in her legs. Two days later she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Rather than accepting this news stoically she was at once furious and humiliated. Only by looking back at her father’s extraordinary example was she able to rediscover her own grit and find a way forward rebuilding her life shard by shard.


March 28: Sam’s Best Shot
Dr James Best … in conversation with Bill Kable

Dr James Best threw away the rule book on autism, deciding to take his son Sam on a 6-month backpacking trip across Africa. Rather than keeping him to routines and “wrapping him in cotton wool”, he wanted to expose his 14-year-old to uncertainty and unpredictability. It was based on the idea that adolescence represents a particular opportunity for learning, similar to that during infancy when the brain is highly receptive to change.

Listen in to be inspired about this life-changing journey.

April 4: Astronaut Father
Terry Virts … in conversation with Bill Kable

Terry Virts has seen Australia many times after spending 200 days in space on a mission to the International Space Station. Terry is a high achiever in every sense of the word. He dreamed of becoming an astronaut as a child and then joined that small group of people. He has walked in space and recorded what he saw from above in thousands of photos. And we get to talk to him about the parts of his life that he rates the highest as a father, astronaut, U.S. Air Force pilot, photographer and author.
