September 26: A Long Path to Freedom
Jeff McMullen AM …
in conversation with Bill Kable

After his many years as a foreign correspondent for the ABC and as a journalist on 60 Minutes, Jeff McMullen has for 20 years been a campaigner to improve the health, education and human rights of Australian Aborigines and other First Nations people around the world. What stirred him to go down this path? It was the strong sense of injustice and the ability we all have to do something about it. Jeff gives a fascinating and optimistic insight into some of the current issues facing all Australians.


October 3: Five Years From Now
Paige Toon … in conversation with Bill Kable

It’s all about relationships. Paige Toon has written her eleventh novel in eleven years and in this one she explores the relationship between a daughter and her father in an English setting as well as that between a son and his father on the coast of South Australia. The premise is that the characters’ paths cross every five years and there are such significant changes you can’t wait to see what has happened during those five year periods. Paige is a million selling author and a delight to speak with.


October 10: The Boy Crisis
Dr Warren Farrell … in conversation with Bill Kable

Is there a boy crisis? Dr Farrell is a world authority on men’s and boys’ issues. His award winning books have been translated into 17 languages and he is the Chair of a Commission to create a White House Council on Boys and Men. In his new book Dr Farrell looks at the evidence showing how boys are struggling and losing the fight to keep up with their sisters. This is an important issue to deal with, one that casts a new light on mass shootings, ISIS and lots more. And our guest is inspirational.
