Burpees.You hate themI hate themWhy? Because they are pretty much the best whole-body exercise you can do in a confined space. If you had to pick on exercise to do for the rest of your life, bang-for-buck - it's probably the burpee.But what about keeping your mind fit?In this episode Osher offers up a technique to train the observing mind to get more involved, more often.It's simple to learn, and can have profound impacts on how we react to things.What do you think?

The importance of creating a village around you, ft Gus Worland.

How many people are in your village?It might sound like a silly question - as not many of us live in villages anymore, yet for the vast majority of our evolution - we lived in communities that we depended on for support and care, and communities that depended on us. Community-driven purpose was baked into our way of living and as our brains and bodies evolved expecting these things.Without that support or purpose, things can get out of balance.Osher is joined by broadcaster and the founder of Gotcha4Life, Gus Worland. He has dedicated his career to helping people, mostly men - actively work on building that village. He never intended to do it, however when he got the call, Gus went all in. Hosted on Acast.

A Hard Chat About Cats

After seeing a poster for a lost cat, Osher wanted to talk about what it means to be a cat owner. As a former owner of two furry, purry executioners, he was shocked at recent research out of ANU which shows that the scale of devastation that domestic, cute, furry pet cats are having on native wildlife is absolutely catastrophic.

Effective Discipline, Developing a child’s emotional skills, and setting boundaries as a parent (ft. Gen Muir).

Do you talk to yourself harshly? Did you know it’s as threatening as if someone else talked to you that way? Parenting expert Gen Muir is my guest today, in an episode packed with tools and techniques to help you (and me) not be so hard about potentially ruining the life of these kids we love so much. Her new book Little People, Big Feelings is an insight into not just powerful, research based tools and techniques - but a real-life reflection that this powerhouse Mum of four boys uses every day with her own family. The great news - apparently we only need to get it right 30% of the time to get an A in parenting. I wish highschool had those pass marks! We cover a lot - the role of self-compassion in parenting and the challenges of step-parenting, the importance of building strong relationships with children and creating a nurturing and supportive environment, self compassion around your own journey as a parent and - a vital discussion about choosing the right vehicle for your family.

519: Melissa Etheridge on grief, connection and redemption

MELISSA ETHERIDGE is my guest this week. Yes, THE Melissa Etheridge. She’s touring once again, kicking off in Perth in May, then heading east stopping all stations, Adelaide, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Sydney (which is already sold out). She’s bringing some family with her as you’re about to hear she is very very excited about it. If this is your first time hearing about this remarkable woman, let me bring you up to speed. Melissa Etheridge is a Grammy winning, Oscar winning singer/songwriter superstar. For over 30 years her distinctive voice has told stories of love, passion and heartache. She’s publicly lived through challenges that most people experience in private - her journey of coming out, a cancer diagnosis, hair loss from the chemo, and recently the absolutely tragic loss of her son Beckett who passed away from an opioid overdose at just 21. Yeah, heads up - we talk about that, and I end up crying in this chat. Melissa, however, has used her grief to explore ways of treating addiction by supporting world-first research into the use of plant medicines previously associated with sacred ceremony and how they might be able to save lives so affected by addiction.MICF shows on sale now Tickets at oshergunsberg.comhttps://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2024/shows/osher-guensberg-ntnnnnGot suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

518: Sharon Callister on the misconceptions of and the (many) solutions for homelessness

Today we’re talking to SHARON CALLISTER - she’s the CEO of Mission Australia. Sharon is one of these rare humans that’s just born to help. Can’t stop her, won’t stop her. Among the things she’s focusing on - is addressing the grim challenge of rising homelessness among women in Australia. You might be confronted by some of the misconceptions about homelessness in Australia. Sharon shares some pretty intense stories of people she’s worked with who have experienced homelessness and the challenges they face. Helping an individual is important, however it’s treating a symptom not a cause, so Sharon has a lot to say about the need for investment in social and affordable housing and the power of early intervention. We do talk about domestic and family violence and the role of education in changing attitudes and behaviours. I know it sounds grim - but I promise you this is a conversation full of hope.

515: The undeniable Abbie Chatfield, on romance, reality and butt stuff

Abbie Chatfield is the most exciting figure in Australian media today, and she’s only just getting started. A finance degree graduate who arrived on reality TV fresh from a career in corporate real estate, Abbie absolutely exploded on to our screens in Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor Australia. ‌ However it was what she did next that changed everything. Earnestly, honestly, and openly - she began to navigate public life with a power and cadence which took many by surprise. ‌ Creating her podcast “it’s a lot” pulled back the catapult that has set Abbie on a course for stratospheric heights. I’ve never in my entire career met someone like her. She treats every gig as a learning opportunity, sees self improvement and mastery as a daily goal, knows when she’s right and knows to ask for help when she needs it, knows her worth, knows her value and is not afraid to take the lead on monetising that value either through her podcast, her national tours, or the creation of a line of sex toys which have seen phenomenal success. ‌ Abbie is an open book - and this conversation covers trolling, self-harm, destructive patterns in relationships, an enormous deep-dive into the nuts and bolts of making reality TV (which I rarely do) and yes, butt stuff.

John Denver once said “Some days are diamonds, some days are stones” - so when my day turned into ten tonnes of road base gravel dropped on my head, I knew the only way out was by using two of the more powerful words I know how to use.Checking in, February 12, 2024MICF shows on sale now Tickets at oshergunsberg.comhttps://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2024/shows/osher-guensberg-ntnnnnGot suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

514: The maddening manipulation of King George. Lessons in getting people to do what you want from the greatest Survivor player ever.

For me, @survivorAU is For me is simply the greatest game ever invented by humans.It combines all the strategy and game-theory of a chess match with the hardest CrossFit class you’ve ever done, with all the delicate diplomacy of an intergovernmental climate conference, all while camping for 55 days in the wild in conditions that would make Bear Grylls flinch.‌And it’s widely accepted that the greatest player to have ever played the game is an Australian man, whom you may know as @kinggeorgeofbankstown.To describe him, I would need to tell you about how there were a few times that I played scrabble with the heavy hitters there in Washington square park in NYC, and next to us there were some chess tables.The players there were absolute weapons. The kind of chess players who could walk past another game, and without breaking step, glance down at the board and say “Black wins in six” before carrying on with their day.That is what George is like with people.A former political operative for the State Government, George Mladenov astounded viewers with his incredible game theory and devastating manipulation skills.When you check out the episode, you’re going to learn some fascinating things about not only survivor, but also politics, visualisation, negotiation, timing your moves for maximum impact, and surprisingly - poker.I was over the moon to have George come to my house.Enjoy an audience with the King.Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

In 1983 and 1984 he twice achieved the pinnacle of his sport when he became back to back world champion.But it’s what Tom has achieved out of the water which is possibly even more incredible.In today’s episode he talks about how he found him self sliding down the slippery slope of addiction, how that addiction began to take everything that he loved away from him, had him trapped in a cycle of drug abuse that was heading towards a very grim end.But Tom knew he needed help, and thankfully he was able to get that help.And it was at South Pacific Private that Tom first got help.I’m no stranger to talking about recovery from drugs and alcohol - it’s a part of my story and a huge reason why I started this show. Because I didn’t know that not drinking and using was an option.I wanted to have conversations out there which could demonstrate that there was an alternative and that help was available if you needed it.And because of that, I’m grateful to partner with South Pacific Private to bring you this episode. South Pacific Private is Australia's leading treatment centre, and has been treating the underlying causes of addiction, anxiety, and depression in Australia for 30 years.If that sounds like something you’re interested in you can take a free self-assessment for a variety of conditions on their website at southpacificprivate.com.au .And if you need them - Their team is available to chat 7 days a week on 1800 063 332Tom Carroll is a recovering addict, and his journey of redemption is nothing short of inspiring. It's a story of resilience, strength, and finding hope even in the darkest of times.He’s an incredible wise man, and even if you don’t have a problem with any substance, gambling, or any other kind of addiction - the wisdom Tom has to share about untreated trauma, and taking responsibility for your choices and your situation is absolutely transformative.Tickets to upcoming Melbourne live shows available here: https://www.malthousetheatre.com.au/tickets/malthouse-outdoor-stage/osher-gunsberg-better-than-yesterday/Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

A ground-breaking debut that launches in and tackles many of the thorniest social and political issues facing young women in Australia today.With her book Bite Back, Hannah leads the charge on the discourse we’ve been missing, from how to have hard conversations with loved ones, to the realities of reforming a criminal justice system that isn’t fit for purpose and the future of the #MeToo movement.Hannah and I have an in depth discussion where we talk about the importance of media and legal literacy, the value of critical thinking, and the use of fear as a commodity.Tickets to upcoming Melbourne live shows available here: https://www.malthousetheatre.com.au/tickets/malthouse-outdoor-stage/osher-gunsberg-better-than-yesterday/Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

Big Lessons from 2023 (5): EP 498 Grace Tame

Grace Tame is an Australian of the Year, author, and a voice that's shaking the foundations of our society.She gained prominence for her advocacy and determination to overturn Tasmanian laws that prevented survivors from speaking out about their experiences through the Let Her Speak campaign.Until April 6 2020 it was illegal for victims to identify themselves as the victim of such a crime. If they did speak about what happened two them, they could face six months in prison.The law was probably brought in to protect people from being identified - however if those survivors chose to share their stories, it would be illegal to do so.In a world where conversations about consent and survivor support are more crucial than ever, Grace has been a driving force in raising awareness and demanding change.Her courage and determination have paved the way for important discussions that challenge the status quo.A status quo that does not like to be challenged.The rancid stacks-on that she’s had to deal with as an adult is utterly shameful. The things she has had to endure for speaking out about her abuse is just too awful to behold.And the things that happen to her have all been perpetrated by men. Entitled adult men.‌Grace Tame is a powerful, brilliant person and I’m so glad you’re going to get a chance to engage with her today.Tickets to upcoming Melbourne live shows available here: https://www.malthousetheatre.com.au/tickets/malthouse-outdoor-stage/osher-gunsberg-better-than-yesterday/Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

Big Lessons from 2023 (1): EP 501 Ben and Chris

Have you ever thought about the story behind your favourite band? How did they create their sound, how did they become a world-wide sensation, how did it all start?In 1994, three young teenage boys from Newcastle, Dan, Ben and Chris aged 14, entered a competition to record a song at the studios of the station Triple J. Little did they know, when Dan’s Mum filled out the entry form and sent it in, along with a cassette tape and a photo of them on a stoop of a house, that they would become world-wide sensations.Earlier this year I was joined by Ben Gillies and Chris Joannou. This year they wrote and released their book, Love & Pain, which takes you on the journey of silverchair. Silverchair were more than just a band, they were a brotherhood. As they join me for a conversation, I learn about what really made them something special.Tickets to upcoming Melbourne live shows available here: https://www.malthousetheatre.com.au/tickets/malthouse-outdoor-stage/osher-gunsberg-better-than-yesterday/Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

511: Brad Guy on Surviving a skydiving accident, PTSD, and the best pun of 2023.

Brad Guy literally fell out of a plane and miraculously survived a skydiving accident. The physical injuries that he suffered from are one thing, but it's Brad's extraordinary story of how devastating a problem that PTSD became in his life, and how he tried to self medicate his way out of it, it's that which is truly compelling. Brad's extraordinary description not only of his accident, but also the hypervigilance which started to control his life, is something that is unfortunately all too common for people who have experienced trauma in their lives. If you've been delaying getting help, or there's someone you love who needs help for whatever reasons, but won't seek that help - this episode is full of brilliant truly relatable moments that could just be the thing to change the status quo. Once you hear the kind of horror that Brad was living with day in and day out, and what is life is like now, it's a strong case for the idea that there is actually a way to live your life that's not a constant spiral of pain. And that with help and a commitment to treatment, things can and will get a whole lot better.

510: Ash London and her gentle, compassionate disengagement from a long-term relationship with the church

Men, do you ever ask yourself what happens to my wife’s career when the baby comes along? How long will she take off work? Will that time off be beneficial to our family but detrimental to her career? When will she go back to work? Can she go back to work and have the same job requirements as when she left to become a mother?These are common questions mothers asks themselves over and over, before becoming a mother and once they become a mother.Today I am joined by Ash London, in 2021 she became a mother to her son Buddy Ray. Before Ash was a mother she was radio talk host shows of a popular night time music show called “Ash London Live”, she travelled the world and interviewed huge stars such Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and Ed Sheeran to name a few. She was known for her close relationships with these artists because she was so invested in their music and shared the same passion.Right now Ash is very much wrestling with the idea of having another child and is not afraid to say that she misses work or that a lot of her identity was wrapped up in her work. So why are women afraid to admit that? And why is that a hesitance for mother’s when it comes to trying again for baby number two and growing the family.Tickets to upcoming Melbourne live shows available here: https://www.malthousetheatre.com.au/tickets/malthouse-outdoor-stage/osher-gunsberg-better-than-yesterday/Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

509: Lessons from a career in Remote Psychology with Prof Judith Gullifer

When I moved to America, and over the following ten years of living there - to be without our public health system really opened my eyes to how much of an incredible asset that is to our country. That the standard of care that is available to those of us with the fewest resources was equivalent to the kind of care only the most wealthy people in the US could afford absolutely blew my mind. ‌ But a part of protecting our public health system is to make it as efficient as possible. To watch for wasteful spending, and to be sure that the best outcomes can happen for the most amount of people with the lowest cost. It’s not perfect by any stretch. Yet it’s still a superpower that we in Australia can be proud of. ‌ So how do you make things more efficient? How do we get better outcomes for people particularly when it comes to mental health? ‌ Thankfully my guest today is an expert in these matters. ‌ Professor Judith Gullifer is the Deputy Head of School and Senior Director of Education in the School of Psychological Science at Monash University, who are the sponsors of this episode. ‌ Drawing on her time spent as a psychologist in rural Australia, Judith now works to make sure that health care professionals entering the workforce are equipped with everything they need to help people in the best way possible.

508: The Story Behind the new Julian Dennison film “Uproar” (or how Paul Middleditch and Sonia Whiteman made a hit movie, and stayed married. )

There’s a new film called ‘Uproar’ that comes out in Australia this week, it stars Julian Dennison, Minnie Driver and the exquisite Rhys Darby. Set around the 1981 springbok tour of NZ, it’s as hilarious as it is staggering in how powerfully it tells the story of a kid trying to figure out who they are, at the same time as a community trying to figure out who they are - and indeed the start of a whole country trying to figure out who they are. What is wonderful about this film is that it is based on a true story. The life story of the brilliant director Paul Middleditch. Paul has been on the show before - he’s the absolute genius behind the kind of commercials that you never ever forget, the brilliant series of ads for Australian Lamb the unforgettable commercials for Carlton Draught (including one which involved hundreds of extras charging across a field towards each other) and the hands-down classic Yellow Pages campaign with the immortal line “Not Happy Jan”. What makes this film even more unique is that while Paul is directing a film that he literally lived, the screenplay was written by his extraordinarily talented wife, the acclaimed writer and director Sonia Whiteman. Now as I mention in this episode - it’s rare that my wife and I can build something from Ikea without getting shitty with each other. And here is a couple who’ve been together for 23 years, with a beautiful family, managing to take an idea from inception to pitch to production - and they’re still together. The film is magnificent. I cried twice, Audrey cried about five times. But how these two work together and the way they speak about each other - that’s proper couple goals. I adore these two humans. I can’t wait for you to get to know them.

Camilla is the founder an editor of the internet’s longest-running, deepest-digging gossipmongers, Popbitch which has been in action since late 1999. Popbitch is easily, if not the very first internet pop culture gossip sites or gossip newsletters which set the standard of internet reporting from celebrity culture to pop culture in the new millennium.  Camilla is a remarkable woman who left a career in serious political journalism covering Eastern Europe as it emerged from communism in the late 90s to start a weekly email about pop stars behaving badly.SPONSORS:  Canstar - download the App here https://onelink.to/canstar-bty, then use the code BTY10, get a $10 gift card on registration.Tickets to upcoming Melbourne live shows available here: https://www.malthousetheatre.com.au/tickets/malthouse-outdoor-stage/osher-gunsberg-better-than-yesterday/Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

507: What happens when Entitlement outweighs Empathy? A conversation about Consent with Chanel Contos.

My guest today was the catalyst for fundamentally changing how consent education works in Australia.In 2021 Chanel posted on Instagram:“Have you or a close friend been sexually assaulted by someone who went to an all-boys school in Sydney?”Within 24 hours, 204 People had responded “yes” to the question, and then she had her first ever live TV interview 72 hours later.Over that weekend her friend started a website for Chanel, where she collected 6000 testimonies during the first three weeks.She started a petition demanding consent classes and 45,000 signatures later and exactly a year from the date she first posted on Instagram – after a lot of meetings and phone calls – the nine education ministers in Australia unanimously agreed and then publicly announced that they would mandate consent education.Chanel Contos is a force of nature.A fierce advocate for consent education and the brilliant brain behind the Teach Us Consent campaign.She's been instrumental in raising awareness about sexual assault and consent in Australia.Today we discuss the challenges of navigating relationships in the dating app era and explore the disturbing influence of pornography on our understanding of consent.Chanel highlights the need to extend empathy beyond our immediate circles, teaching both young men and women how they can prioritize their own desires – but most importantly, saying no when it matters most.Chanel has some valuable lessons to impart – not just about preventing sexual violence but also around creating a culture of respect and understanding.She strongly believes that showing young men that healthy, consensual relationships are something they should aspire to can ultimately help change the world.Her book, “Consent Laid Bare” is absolutely stunning.It’s out right now.SPONSORS:  Canstar - download the App here https://onelink.to/canstar-bty, then use the code BTY10, get a $10 gift card on registration.Tickets to upcoming Melbourne live shows available here: https://www.malthousetheatre.com.au/tickets/malthouse-outdoor-stage/osher-gunsberg-better-than-yesterday/Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

506: Caught between insanity and death, surfing icon Tom Carroll’s greatest triumph happened well away from the ocean

When you think of an someone who’s addicted to methamphetamines, where their life is, where they live, what their job is, what their relationship with their family is like, what it the image that comes to your mind? I’ll bet that picture isn’t a successful middle-aged man, with a beautiful home near the beach, a man who is a father of three daughters. I’ll also bet that you didn’t picture Australian surfing legend Tom Carroll. But at one point, that’s exactly what Tom’s life had become. In the world of professional surfing, Tom Carroll is a legend. Through the 80s and 90s, he dominated the professional surfing tour, becoming the first surfer to sign a multi-million dollar contract. In 1983 and 1984 he twice achieved the pinnacle of his sport when he became back to back world champion. But it’s what Tom has achieved out of the water which is possibly even more incredible. In today’s episode he talks about how he found him self sliding down the slippery slope of addiction, how that addiction began to take everything that he loved away from him, had him trapped in a cycle of drug abuse that was heading towards a very grim end. But Tom knew he needed help, and thankfully he was able to get that help. And it was at South Pacific Private that Tom first got help. I’m no stranger to talking about recovery from drugs and alcohol - it’s a part of my story and a huge reason why I started this show. Because I didn’t know that not drinking and using was an option. I wanted to have conversations out there which could demonstrate that there was an alternative and that help was available if you needed it. And because of that, I’m grateful to partner with South Pacific Private to bring you this episode. South Pacific Private is Australia's leading treatment centre, and has been treating the underlying causes of addiction, anxiety, and depression in Australia for 30 years. If that sounds like something you’re interested in you can take a free self-assessment for a variety of conditions on their website at southpacificprivate.com.au . And if you need them - Their team is available to chat 7 days a week on 1800 063 332 Tom Carroll is a recovering addict, and his journey of redemption is nothing short of inspiring. It's a story of resilience, strength, and finding hope even in the darkest of times. He’s an incredible wise man, and even if you don’t have a problem with any substance, gambling, or any other kind of addiction - the wisdom Tom has to share about untreated trauma, and taking responsibility for your choices and your situation is absolutely transformative.Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

505: Bardot and Beyond with Belinda Chapple, the Girl in the Band

Belinda Chapple.She was a member of the massive Australian girl group Bardot.‌Bardot formed in 1999 on the reality TV series Popstars on Channel 7.‌Popstars filmed the whole process, from auditioning thousands of ladies, down to the top 25 and then eventually the top five that formed Bardot.‌From there they moved into a house together and we watched their every moment for the first three months of Bardot.‌Bardot released two albums, were nominated for three ARIA awards and had two national tours, before their abrupt end in 2002.‌The band then consisted of Belinda Chapple, Sophie Monk, Sally Polihronas and Tiffany Wood and an official statement was released to say “Bardot confirm their mutual decision to end the group's career.”‌Wildly I was there for the band’s final ever performance on the Channel V stage - the 2nd of May in 2002. Which I didn’t actually recall until getting ready for this interview, I was still drinking at the time and dealing with a lot of PTSD shit. It makes sense I don’t remember it. But when I watched it, you see all four women in tears, marking the end of a once close band.‌Belinda has released a book to tell us what really happened.‌The end of the band was not mutual and despite the band reportedly earning up to 26 million in its first 12 months what the ladies actually got paid was a long way from that.‌But it’s not all about money.It’s about friendship, trust, and in some ways - betrayal.‌Belinda Chapple is a brilliant human, and her story is one I know you’ll get a lot out of.Got suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

Peter Garrett is easily one of the greatest living Australians. Not only through the immense cultural contribution of his music but also through his unyielding activism and long political career.

We discuss the fight for climate action and environmental protection, and explore the need for mobilization and organization to create lasting change. Peter is releasing new music, there’s a little out now and way more to come from his second solo album - so we touch upon topics like age and creativity, as well as how music continues to be a powerful tool for activism. He’s absolutely captivating to listen to. And when you hear the perspectives he shares, it's clear why Peter Garrett is such a huge figure in our cultural landscape.Peter Garrett last joined me in 2015 where we spoke about his memoir Big Blue Sky. Peter most recently sat down with me for a live recording at the SXSW conference that was held in Sydney, to talk about his new music.In March 2024 he will release a new solo album called The True North. It’s a deeply personal reflection on his singular journey, drawing inspiration and sustenance from the living colours of Australia’s natural environment and the sights and sounds of modern Oz.

Have you ever thought about the story behind your favourite band? How did they create their sound, how did they become a world-wide sensation, how did it all start?

Today I am joined by Ben Gillies and Chris Joannou. They’ve just written and released their book, Love & Pain, which takes you on the journey of silverchair.

500: Hannah Ferguson on modern feminism, unhealthy masculinity and why she will be our last ever PM

What would you have liked to accomplish by 25? Was being the co-founder and CEO of an independent Australian news commentary platform providing informed, progressive opinions on subjects that sit at the intersection of feminist, social and political issues on your list? What about having completed a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and a Master of Publishing, Editing and Writing? Today I am joined by Hannah Ferguson who is the co-founder and CEO of Cheek Media Co. Hannah has written and released her first novel; Bite Back. A ground-breaking debut that launches in and tackles many of the thorniest social and political issues facing young women in Australia today. With her book Bite Back, Hannah leads the charge on the discourse we’ve been missing, from how to have hard conversations with loved ones, to the realities of reforming a criminal justice system that isn’t fit for purpose and the future of the #MeToo movement. Hannah and I have an in depth discussion where we talk about the importance of media and legal literacy, the value of critical thinking, and the use of fear as a commodity.

499: Surfing champion Owen Wright and the greatest comeback story of all time

If you hurt yourself, doing something you loved, would you do it again? ‌ What if it was something that because you were so passionate about it that had you ended up becoming one of the best in the world at it - which then became a gig that paid really, really well - if you hurt yourself doing that thing do you think you would do it again? ‌ What if the injury was so severe that it nearly killed you, and it took you almost a year to be able to walk or talk again? Would you go back to it? Would you face the fear of getting hurt again? And even if you did go back, could you handle being nowhere near as capable as you once were? ‌ That is exactly what Australian Surfer Owen Wright did. ‌ In 2015 while surfing at pipeline, Owen sustained a traumatic brain injury that very nearly killed him. Unable to walk or talk properly, not only his life, but his surfing career hanging in the balance. ‌ The story of how Owen managed to regain mobility, and not only get back into the water, but to go on to win Australia’s first Olympic surfing medal in 2021, is easily one of the most inspirational comeback stories ever told. ‌ We are only beginning to speak with appropriate gravity about brain inquiries in sport. There’s a renewed emphasis on safeguarding athlete well-being and minimising brain injuries in Australian athletes. The Australian Government has even increased funding to enhance research and prevention of brain injuries and concussions in sports. As far as what you and I can do? We can have conversations around these injuries and start showing our children that safety matters, because a brain injury is life long and potentially life ending. ‌ Even if you’ve never surfed, or never had to rehab after a significant injury - this chat with Owen Wright is easily one of the most incredible conversations about what recovery from a traumatic injury actually looks like. Owen even generously shares about a near-death experience which left me utterly transfixed. Not everyone is going to learn how to walk again and then win an Olympic medal - but it’s important to know that it can be done. ‌ It’s a brilliant listen, and I hope you enjoy it.

498: Grace Tame isn't who the news tells you she is

How would you feel if your identity, who you felt as a person - was denied time and again. What if it was at a national level? That’s what my guest today goes through on a daily basis - because there’s a narrative about her that isn’t really about her. Luckily she’s a fierce person who will fight to be seen and heard for who she is. However the way this happens to her tells us a lot about how we as a community in Australia see women, see survivors of child sexual abuse, and how little we hold our media to account.Grace Tame is an Australian of the Year, author, and a voice that's shaking the foundations of our society. She gained prominence for her advocacy and determination to overturn Tasmanian laws that prevented survivors from speaking out about their experiences through the Let Her Speak campaign. Until April 6 2020 it was illegal for victims to identify themselves as the victim of such a crime. If they did speak about what happened two them, they could face six months in prison. The law was probably brought in to protect people from being identified - however if those survivors chose to share their stories, it would be illegal to do so. The forced anonymity that brings only reinforces the stigma and shame in our community around victims of such crimes. ‌ Meanwhile these laws protected the people who committed these crimes. The same laws that used the word “relationship” in relation to these crimes - the crime was to “Maintain a sexual relationship with a person under 17.” You can clearly hear how that particular word changes how you think about what happened between the victim and the perpetrator. ‌ In a world where conversations about consent and survivor support are more crucial than ever, Grace has been a driving force in raising awareness and demanding change. Her courage and determination have paved the way for important discussions that challenge the status quo. A status quo that does not like to be challenged. The rancid stacks-on that she’s had to deal with as an adult is utterly shameful. The things she has had to endure for speaking out about her abuse is just too awful to behold. And the things that happen to her have all been perpetrated by men. Entitled adult men. ‌ Grace Tame is a powerful, brilliant person and I’m so glad you’re going to get a chance to engage with her today.

496: Finding Joy, Triumph, and Love in Life with Quadruple Amputee (and Pirate) Tom Nash

How long do you think it would take you heal from an illness that changed your life? Picture this - you’re 19 have just lost both yours arms and legs after contracting meningococcal disease. How long do you think it would take you to heal? Well for Tom Nash, who survived the life-threatening illness to becoming a quadruple amputee at the age of nineteen, his story is nothing short of remarkable. However it isn’t until now, in his forties that Tom believes he has truly begun heal. When I first met Tom in 2019 we spoke about his battle with meningococcal septicaemia, learning who your real friends are and relearning how to what you love. In more recent years, Tom has become an in-demand keynote speaker, regularly presenting ideas and philosophies steeped in lessons learnt from a life of overcoming adversity. His TEDx Sydney talk, The Perks of Being a Pirate, has been viewed over 2.5 million times. His experiences have given him a unique outlook on life and a belief that while everyone has their own personal challenges, its how you deal with them that matters. Tom’s journey is a testament to the human spirit's strength and the power of determination. Today I sit down with Tom Nash to talk about his new book "Hook, Line and Sinner" and we discuss his healing and how he transformed adversity into an opportunity for growth and how he continues to inspire others with his story of perseverance and accomplishment.

494: The Importance of an Uncomfortable Conversation in a Comfortable Community with Josh Szeps

When was the last time you had a conversation with someone that was uncomfortable? ‌ When you heard something they said, and you got the floods. Your heart rate spiked, your hands started to shake, you wanted to not just show them how wrong they were for saying that, but to utterly dominate them into submission? ‌ Did you stop to think about why it was uncomfortable? Were they being out and out racist? Misogynistic? Cruel? ‌ Were they pointing out something in you that you don’t like, and instead of realising that indeed you hold views that you yourself find awful - you projected that anger back on to them?For example, you’re 100% against vigilante justice, and when someone asks you - but what if it was your child that was the victim, do the feelings of rage that arise inside you make you so uncomfortable that they’re even there that you get upset at the other person for suggesting you would ever carry out an extrajudicial beating? ‌ Uncomfortable conversations are vital to have. And if you’re not very good at them, thankfully Josh Szeps is - and you can hear him having uncomfortable conversations every week on his podcast of the same name. ‌ Josh broadcaster, political satirist, and television presenter, widely recognized for his engaging work on the ABC network here in Australia. With a diverse background hosting shows like Weekend Breakfast, NSW Afternoons, and The Drum, Josh brings a wealth of experience and insight to our conversation. I get challenged every single time I speak with Josh, and I relish in the practice of being challenged on my ideas by someone who I trust and consider a great friend - because it’s good practice to not feel like I myself am being challenged, just the idea. I take big breaths when I speak to Josh, but I love it. He’s got a brain on him and I can’t wait for you to hear this chat. Josh has an unflinching commitment to social justice, and is a powerful voice for change. He’s absolutely committed to making the world a more just and equitable place which I’m sure you’ll be inspired by, just as I am.

492: How Changing Intention of Action Changed a Career - with Broden Kelly from Aunty Donna

Broden Kelly. He’s a podcaster, musician and 1/3 of the landmark Australian comedy outfit Aunty Donna. ‌ They’re not for everyone, and that’s OK. ‌ There’s a solid broad line in the middle of our community where a joke is very obvious. And as you get out to the edges, it can get darker, stranger, weirder, more uncomfortable, and sometimes - just sometimes you can loop all the way back around again through all of that discomfort to absolute hilarity. ‌ It’s that particular path for me which makes Aunty Donna one of the most astounding comedy exports out country has ever made. ‌ Their absolutely groundbreaking Netflix show is fucking bonkers. If it’s not for you - that’s fine. Not everything is for everyone. ‌ However the three core people who make up Aunty Donna are smart, delightful, loving humans who have a lot to offer outside of making sure there’s room for pud. ‌ Broden came around to my echoey Melbourne apartment last week to share the incredible journey he and Aunty Donna have been on, the absolute pinnacle moment where they changed the trajectory of their careers all by deciding the intent behind their performance, and wonderfully - we talk a lot about footy. Particularly AFL. ‌ Broden has a magnificent Podcast, “The Footy with Broden Kelly”. I love it because he talks about sport in a way that has about noting to do with stats, with scandals, or with gambling - instead he talks about sport from an emotional place I’ve never heard described before. ‌ I came late to football, both AFL and NRL - however the way Broden talks about it, it speaks to me in a way that the blossom-nosed ex-players on the telly absolutely don’t.

491: Just get up and go for a walk (across Australia) with adventurer Sophie Matterson

My guest is Sophie Matterson.

Today Sophie shares with me the highs and lows, the challenges, and the moments of sheer wonder that defined her year-long odyssey.Stay up to date by joining the mailing list here: Osher Günsberg - Better Than Yesterday Podcast | LinktreeAnything else?

489: A path back from PTSD with former war correspondent Dean Yates

For decades, Dean Yates decades was the ideal warzone correspondent: courageous, compassionate, dedicated. After years of facing the worst moments imaginable - including the Bali bombings and the Boxing Day tsunami, it was one final incident which undid him. In July 2007, two of his staff members were brutally gunned down by an American helicopter in Iraq. What followed was an unravelling of everything Dean thought he knew of himself. His PTSD was compounded by his moral wound - the devastation of what he thought he knew of the world and his own character and beliefs. To get better took a while. Years of treatment, including several stints inside a psychiatric facility. But he did get better, and is doing a lot better - and it’s so important to know that you can treat these kind of issues. Your life doesn’t have to be horrible. But you have to want to get better, and you have to be willing to do whatever it takes to get there. This conversation talks about Moral Injury, PTSD, describes some pretty reprehensible acts of violence, and crosses into discussing suicide. ***** If you feel like voting for me for the 2023 Gold Logie, you can do so at https://www.tvweeklogies.com.au/Stay up to date on more upcoming NTNNNNN shows by joining the mailing list here: Osher Günsberg - Better Than Yesterday Podcast | LinktreeAnything else?

Celeste Mountjoy is a Melbourne based artist, who has become a voice for a generation of women that, she says, are no longer prepared to smile politely at the outrages, uncertainties, and absurdities of life on the path to adulthood. Celeste uses her art to share her observations on being young, female and occasionally seriously fucked off. She started sharing her illustrations on Instagram at the age of 14 and now, almost a decade later her Instagram FilthyRatBag has garnered a huge following. Celeste has also released a book of illustrations called What The Fuck Is This, featuring over 100 previously unreleased drawings and comics.

487: You're Not To Blame for Tech Addiction with Prof Gaia Bernstein

Professor Gaia Bernstein is an expert in privacy and policy law, and is co-director of Gibbons Institute of Law Science and Technology. Her latest book "Unwired: Gaining Control over Addictive Technologies" explores device addiction and what it’s doing to us. Rather than blaming users, the book really shatters the illusion that we autonomously choose how to spend our time online. It shifts the moral responsibility and accountability for solutions to corporations. Drawing lessons from the tobacco and food industries, the book demonstrates why government regulation is necessary to curb technology addiction. If you’re concerned about your screen time, or what too much screen time is doing to you let alone your kids - this episode is an epic.

484: Lessons for Competing in the Endurance Sport of Life, with Rich Roll

If you’re completely unaware of who Rich Roll is - let me bring you up to speed.A star of the Stanford University Swim Team, eventually alcohol and addiction played havoc with his life and career, a path that lead him to jails, institutions and ultimately rehab at the age of 31.He got sober, and got his career back on track - however on the eve of his 40th birthday Rich found himself 20kg overweight and breathless and doubled over in pain by a simple flight of stairs - his level of fitness a long way from his competitive swimming days.What happens next is straight out of a Rocky montage.He went vegan, got back in the pool and started running regularly. In less than two years, Rich was accepted into the invite-only endurance epic “Ultraman”. A double-distance Hawaiian Ironman, 515km of running, swimming and cycling completed over three days where he not only finished in the top 10, but recorded the 2nd fastest swim split of the contest.It was the first, but not the last time he’d compete in Ultraman, and his success there lead him to be named one of the 25 fittest men on the planet.At 51, he was names “the fittest vegan alive” right after competing in the extraordinary Swedish Swimrun race ötillö. 75 km swimming between then running across a total of 26 islands, tethered to your team mate - all in the brisk September waters of the Stockholm archipelago.Physical feats aside - Rich is a beacon of inspiration on so many levels. For me, his sobriety journey is one I use as a catalyst to push myself to be better, to do better, to get better every day at the business of being in recovery.His family is remarkable, he’s married, he and Julie raise four kids together and all that comes with blending families is something they navigate with grace and poise.He’s an incredible innovator. Behind the scenes he’s literally reinventing what it means to be a broadcaster in this modern world.He’s brave - when he changed careers, he deliberately chose to not pursue his law career - even though it offered a lifeline of funds when times were tight, because that would have taken him too far off the path he was forging for himself.He’s curious, his podcast is game-changing.He’s a bloody great human.Stay up to date on more upcoming NTNNNNN shows by joining the mailing list here: Osher Günsberg - Better Than Yesterday Podcast | LinktreeAnything else?

Better Make it Quick: Dr Ian Chung

Dr Ian Chung has been practising for nearly fifty years in Sydney, Australia. We’ll get into his story shortly - however, he made a name for himself as "Dr Rock”, the doctor to call when you have a major international performer that can’t make the show and there are 20,000 people who have bought tickets and are on the way to the gig as you speak. That’s when you called Dr Chung. If you’ve read my book, you’ll know how I came to meet him - but I can’t tell you how glad I am that I did. Not only was he and the first doctor to diagnose me with social phobia (which was the first time everything started to make sense) but he was the first doctor that I saw about my head that taught me real skills to deal with what was happening rather than just talk about it. I’ll never forget when Dr Chung got angry at me when I told him I’d rather have a few beers to calm down my anxiety than take antidepressants, and it was his anger and frustration that shook me out of my stubbornness and lead me to take those meds - which not only gave me incredible relief but made me lament refusing them when I was first offered them nearly ten years beforehand. A quick note - just because Ian helped me, doesn’t mean he’s the only person who can help. I’ve had many doctors since Ian and they’ve all helped me get where I am and stay where I am today - he’s just the one who set the standard to which I held all other doctors accountable to. There are many, many excellent doctors who can help you if you need help. It’s important to allow time to find them. You might not click straight away, it might not work for you, that’s ok - they’ll work for someone else and that’s fine. It’s important to keep trying, keep trying to find the doctor that you click with, one you can trust, one that makes you want to do what they tell you to do. Because if you’re at the point where you're seeing a Dr, you’re at the point where your ideas have run out of usefulness. So be quiet, listen to what they tell you to do, and do it. And it was in doing what I was told by Doctors that helped me get to a place where I’m a lot healthier than where I once was.It’s not hyperbole to say that Dr Chung changed my life - and I am so very grateful that you now get the chance to hear the story of this incredible man. Ladies and Gentlemen, Dr Ian Chung. Tickets for live shows are here:MelbourneSydneyStay up to date on more upcoming shows by joining the mailing list here: Osher Günsberg - Better Than Yesterday Podcast | LinktreeAnything else?

471: A Bold Conversation with Libbi Gorr

You’ve heard about people ‘reinventing themselves’ but did you ever wonder how it was actually done?Libbi Gorr is a multi-award winning radio and tv broadcaster who as the satirical character Elle McFeast became the first woman in Australia to helm her own national night-time variety show Elle McFeast Live.When a clearly drunk notorious hitman Chopper Read staggered on stage to be interviewed, and proceeded to laugh while joking about killing a man by putting him in a cement mixer - fair to say the shit hit the fan.The absolute rocket that was Elle McFeast was riding into the heights of career success took a very unexpected turn.Her show which had been commissioned for 32 episodes ran only 16, and well before social media cancel culture was invented, the manufactured media outrage around the moment essentially ended Elle McFeast - sending Libbi to seek cover, where she put things back together to reemerge anew.It was an enormously high-profile moment, one which she talks about with her show Bold Conversations, happening at The Malthouse theatre in Melbourne this Thursday - and we touch on as well during our chat on this episode.Tickets for live shows are here:SydneyMelbourneStay up to date on more upcoming shows by joining the mailing list here: Osher Günsberg - Better Than Yesterday Podcast | LinktreeAnything else?

Rob and Deane are two legendary scientists and science communicators from Adelaide, Australia.For 18 years, they brought science to the living rooms of my country as hosts of “The Curiosity Show”.Absolute pioneers in kids television, they assumed intelligence of their audience and brought complicated concepts to life with simple and practical demonstrations using every day household objects.The show did what it says on the box - it encouraged curiosity.To be ok with the feeling of not knowing why something is the way it is, and using that feeling to drive an exploration towards an answer.Wearing turtlenecks, with great moustaches and all to the soundtrack of some excellently odd Synthesisers - these guys paved the way for the megastars of science communication today.You can check out clips and episodes of The Curiosity Show on their YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@CuriosityShowTickets for live shows are here:SydneyMelbourneStay up to date on more upcoming shows by joining the mailing list here: Osher Günsberg - Better Than Yesterday Podcast | LinktreeAnything else?

Best of 2022 - Better Make it Quick: Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich is probably the most famous name in Law in the world. Making a name for herself when she went up against utility company Pacific Gas & Electric and helped bring together the largest settlement ever paid in a direct-action lawsuit in U.S. history on behalf of the people of Hinkley, CA who had been affected by polluted water.Erin went on to become instrumental in numerous other high profile cases, usually up against massive corporate entities who are using their size to get away with either polluting the environment or otherwise neglecting humans basically. Erin was out in Australia doing work with Shine Lawyers - whom she’s been working with for over ten years now, in particular around the issue of PFAS, a toxic chemical contained in firefighting foam used widely in Australia between the 1970s and 2000. The substance was sprayed over defence force bases, shipping ports, and regional firefighting stations for decades. It leaches into the soil and surrounding waterways, causing contamination. In 1987, American authorities wrote to the Australian Government to warn about the dangers of PFAS but nothing was done. Research in the United States has linked exposure to PFAS to cancer and a dozen other diseases. Residents in many Australian towns, including Bullsbrook in Western Australia where Erin visited during her visit, say their dogs have been riddled with cancer and die young. They can’t drink the tap water. They bathe infants in bottled water. There have also been reports of birth defects. Unfortunately, it is difficult to prove in Australian law causation between exposure to this chemical and disease. The people at Shine reached out to me to ask if I’d have Erin on the show, so of course I said yes. I’m terrified to speak about this kind of thing, so I know enough that backing away from it is not the path to freedom - I have to lean into it. So I flew my self on a carbon-offset flight down to Melbourne to speak with this incredible human being. Erin is as you would expect. Incredibly Clever, Blisteringly Fast, Tall, Powerful, Passionate and a Firehose of Fury.I get why she’s good at what she does. Because if you’re going toe to toe in a boardroom with a company that’s got political donations protecting them, you’ll want to have a secret weapon up your sleeve - and that secret weapon is Erin Brockovich. This one blew my socks off. Find her on instagram @the_real_erin_brockovich, let her know you heard her here. And come now to the beautiful Langham hotel in Melbourne to sit eye to eye with one of the best legal minds of our time, and one of the most ferocious environmental activists you’ll ever encounter. Ladies and Gentlemen, Erin Brockovich.Tickets to the Sydney live shows are here: https://www.factorytheatre.com.au/event/friday-night-news-with-osher-gunsberg/Stay up to date on more upcoming shows by joining the mailing list here: Osher Günsberg - Better Than Yesterday Podcast | LinktreeAnything else?

You know Wil Anderson, either from the days on The Glasshouse, on Triple J, Gruen or Question Everything - his legacy in the Australian podcast space is unquestioned with TOFOP running since about 30 seconds after podcasts were invented, and Wilosophy consistently being one of the greatest interview podcasts out there.And all along the way through his career, he’s left a legacy of young performers, producers and writers who were able to work at the top level of their game sometimes years before they’d otherwise get the chance, giving these people an enormous boost in their careers.I’ve been lucky to call Wil a friend for a while now. He’s as good a man as they come, so much so - that when I asked him to come on the podcast to talk about his new book “I’m Not Fine, Thanks” his first response was “Brilliant, I’ll be over to your house next Tuesday morning”.So you’re going to hear what happened when Wil crammed his very, very lanky frame into my tiny box of a podcave and I went 1: 1 with the absolute MAN of Australian stand up.Sign up to the mailing list to stay up to date on live shows: http://eepurl.com/0_VZTJoin the OG Discord server! https://discord.gg/KKyaWPbQ Hosted on Acast.

444: Detaching from Outcomes with Melanie Zanetti aka Chilli Heeler

Melanie Zanetti is an actor who splits her time between Australia and Los Angeles. She’s appeared for years on our screens in films and television - everything from the supernatural thriller “Raven’s Hollow” to “Young Rock”.However, it’s her work on a TV show called Bluey that is her most high-profile gig to date.Melanie Zanetti plays the voice of Chilli Heeler, the mum of the two young girls Bingo and Bluey and the wife of Bandit Heeler.If you’ve never watched Bluey - let me tell you. In my opinion, it’s the greatest sitcom written since Seinfeld, and emotionally - you’d be hard-pressed to find a show that is more wholesome, honest, raw and demonstrative of the realities of parenting, child-rearing and indeed the challenges of being a little kid.I get into this with Melanie - but to see my city of Brisbane represented on TV makes me so emotional, for the first time in my life watching Bluey made me feel like my city mattered.If you’ve never watched Bluey, before you listen to this - open up the ABC iview portal on your phone, tv or computer, and check out the following episodes:Curry SwapArmyStoriesSpace andSleepytimeThat final episode just the other day ranked #2 on IMDB on a list of the 100 greatest TV episodes of ALL TIME.Melanie is an absolute delightOn IG @melaniezanetti Hosted on Acast.

Dr Norman Swan is a physician and journalist most recently known for Coronacast - the Walkley Award winning Podcast that he hosts with Tegan Taylor.Combining his decades of experience in journalism and healthcare, Dr Swan has a way of cutting through myths, half-truths and misconceptions about our health and lifestyle choices that deliver the absolute facts to us - in my experience allowing me to make a informed decision, as much as that may be an uncomfortable decision.Following his most recent best-selling book “So you think you know what’s good for you?” Dr Norman Swan returns with another no-nonsense book “So you want to live younger, longer”. It’s a book packed with the latest research and guidelines to maintain vitality into your later years.And don’t think that if you’re in your 20’s this stuff isn’t for you. Choices we make in our 20’s and 30’s can be the difference between us missing your grandkid’s birthday because you’re hiking the Camino de Santiago in your 70’s and missing your grandkid’s birthday because it’s at a venue that involves stairs.

Better Make it Quick: Rachel Neylan

Rachel Neylan is a Professional Cyclist who’s a part of the UCI Women's Continental Team, she’s an Olympian, a silver medalist at the World Championships and a very driven and fascinating human being. Rachel Came to my house after reaching out to say she listened to the podcast on Twitter. She’d even post #podsie photos of her training rides when she was in Rio in the lead up to last year’s Olympics. So she came around and we had a chat - a chat that was so engaging, that I didn’t end up talking to her about going to ride for Australia in Rio. Occasionally as an interviewer I get so caught up in the conversation that the ground we are covering is so engaging that it’s sometimes as good a story as the thing that they’re really known for. I texted Rachel afterwards to apologize and she responded that it was in fact a relief to not have to talk about Rio again. Reason being it was a quite emotional journey that she’d covered many times - which involves talking about the death of her Father at the start of 2016. For whatever reason, we didn’t go there but when the chat was over I didn’t feel I’d missed out on getting an authentic connection with Rachel at all. If you’d like to know in greater detail about Rachel’s path to the Olympics there’s a great SBS article which you can read.So come to our old apartment in Bronte, the first time I’d had an Olympian in that house, I still get a thrill meeting athletes of that calibre. This is a cup of tea at my kitchen table with Rachel Neylan.

Better Make it Quick: Erin Brockovich

Erin Brockovich is probably the most famous name in Law in the world. Making a name for herself when she went up against utility company Pacific Gas & Electric and helped bring together the largest settlement ever paid in a direct-action lawsuit in U.S. history on behalf of the people of Hinkley, CA who had been affected by polluted water.Erin went on to become instrumental in numerous other high profile cases, usually up against massive corporate entities who are using their size to get away with either polluting the environment or otherwise neglecting humans basically. Erin was out in Australia doing work with Shine Lawyers - whom she’s been working with for over ten years now, in particular around the issue of PFAS, a toxic chemical contained in firefighting foam used widely in Australia between the 1970s and 2000. The substance was sprayed over defence force bases, shipping ports, and regional firefighting stations for decades. It leaches into the soil and surrounding waterways, causing contamination. In 1987, American authorities wrote to the Australian Government to warn about the dangers of PFAS but nothing was done. Research in the United States has linked exposure to PFAS to cancer and a dozen other diseases. Residents in many Australian towns, including Bullsbrook in Western Australia where Erin visited during her visit, say their dogs have been riddled with cancer and die young. They can’t drink the tap water. They bathe infants in bottled water. There have also been reports of birth defects. Unfortunately, it is difficult to prove in Australian law causation between exposure to this chemical and disease. The people at Shine reached out to me to ask if I’d have Erin on the show, so of course I said yes. I’m terrified to speak about this kind of thing, so I know enough that backing away from it is not the path to freedom - I have to lean into it. So I flew my self on a carbon-offset flight down to Melbourne to speak with this incredible human being. Erin is as you would expect. Incredibly Clever, Blisteringly Fast, Tall, Powerful, Passionate and a Firehose of Fury.I get why she’s good at what she does. Because if you’re going toe to toe in a boardroom with a company that’s got political donations protecting them, you’ll want to have a secret weapon up your sleeve - and that secret weapon is Erin Brockovich. This one blew my socks off. Find her on instagram @the_real_erin_brockovich, let her know you heard her here. And come now to the beautiful Langham hotel in Melbourne to sit eye to eye with one of the best legal minds of our time, and one of the most ferocious environmental activists you’ll ever encounter. Ladies and Gentlemen, Erin Brockovich.

Better Make it Quick: Dr Ian Chung

Dr Ian Chung has been practising for nearly fifty years in Sydney, Australia. We’ll get into his story shortly - however, he made a name for himself as "Dr Rock”, the doctor to call when you have a major international performer that can’t make the show and there are 20,000 people who have bought tickets and are on the way to the gig as you speak. That’s when you called Dr Chung. If you’ve read my book, you’ll know how I came to meet him - but I can’t tell you how glad I am that I did. Not only was he and the first doctor to diagnose me with social phobia (which was the first time everything started to make sense) but he was the first doctor that I saw about my head that taught me real skills to deal with what was happening rather than just talk about it. I’ll never forget when Dr Chung got angry at me when I told him I’d rather have a few beers to calm down my anxiety than take antidepressants, and it was his anger and frustration that shook me out of my stubbornness and lead me to take those meds - which not only gave me incredible relief but made me lament refusing them when I was first offered them nearly ten years beforehand. A quick note - just because Ian helped me, doesn’t mean he’s the only person who can help. I’ve had many doctors since Ian and they’ve all helped me get where I am and stay where I am today - he’s just the one who set the standard to which I held all other doctors accountable to. There are many, many excellent doctors who can help you if you need help. It’s important to allow time to find them. You might not click straight away, it might not work for you, that’s ok - they’ll work for someone else and that’s fine. It’s important to keep trying, keep trying to find the doctor that you click with, one you can trust, one that makes you want to do what they tell you to do. Because if you’re at the point where you're seeing a Dr, you’re at the point where your ideas have run out of usefulness. So be quiet, listen to what they tell you to do, and do it. And it was in doing what I was told by Doctors that helped me get to a place where I’m a lot healthier than where I once was.It’s not hyperbole to say that Dr Chung changed my life - and I am so very grateful that you now get the chance to hear the story of this incredible man. Ladies and Gentlemen, Dr Ian Chung.  Hosted on Acast.
