421: Why Independent MPs are the best use of your federal vote with Kylea Tink

Ep. 608

Kylea Tink is the Independent candidate for the seat of North Sydney in the upcoming federal election. She's the former CEO of the McGrath Foundation and most recently was the CEO of Camp Quality. However before those roles she worked at the highest levels of communications consultancy, a job that took her all over the world, including to the Pentagon when she went toe to toe with Donald Rumsfeld after questioning his justification on the US invasion of Iraq.


There's also a story about when she went head-to-head with Peter Dutton that had me giggling with glee. Enjoy the show.

    40:37

(Osher insists they gave he and Wolfie the most funnest ever song to sing about pooping). On their latest record, they add songs about dealing with Climate Change - and still make it sound delightful which is a true skill unto itself.

  • How addiction impacts others, and what to do about it - Live at SXSW (with Diane Young)

    01:03:07
    Addiction is a bastard of a disease. If you have it, you don’t know it. In fact, the number one symptom of addiction is that it convinces you that you aren’t an addict. That’s a terrible thing to get trapped in. And it’s a terrible thing for the people who care about you, because you may not realise it - but your addiction affects them as well as you, and not just because they have to deal with your bullshit. It changes the way they are around others. However, every now and then - addicts have what’s called a ‘moment of clarity’. A moment where they can see what they’re doing, what is happening to them and those around them, and where they’re headed. If you’re lucky - that moment is accompanied by a willingness to do something about it, something to interrupt a cycle of damage and destruction that they otherwise are powerful to interrupt. Those moments don’t last very long, so when they do - what can we do to help the addict in our lives? And what do we need to do to help ourselves? Today Osher welcomes back to the show one of the most important voices in Australia when it comes to the treatment of addiction. Diane Young, a Psychotherapist and Holistic Counsellor who is the Director of Clinical Supervision at South Pacific Private, Australia’s leading treatment centre of addiction, anxiety and depression.
