Osher Günsberg: Better Than Yesterday

Better Make it Quick: Layne Beachley

Ep. 876

In 2021 I was joined by Layne Beachley, the most successful female surfer in history.


In this episode of Better Make it Quick, Layne and I talk about how she used exposure therapy whilst surfing the big ways to get rid of her fear, her marriage to INXS band member Kirk Pengilly and the illusion that follows females in competitive surfing.

    59:44
    Taryn Brumfitt is here, she’s the 2023 Australian of the Year. Leader of the @bodyimagemovement, an Adelaide-based organisation that teaches people to love and appreciate their bodies. She has made two brilliant films, Embrace and Embrace Kids - the first film explores the serious issue of women’s body loathing and Taryn’s path to body acceptance, her second film Embrace Kids has a message for nine- to 14-year-olds to move, nourish, respect and appreciate what their bodies can do. She’s a four-time bestselling author, two-time marathon runner, lover of life and people, and mum to four children, Taryn is absolutely marvellous. We cover a lot in this conversation. Self Talk, Body Image, Self Acceptance and the problem with comparison. We also pick apart the tricky business of dating in middle age, and realising that someone new is going to see you naked. It’s fantastic. Enjoy the show. MICF shows on sale now Tickets at oshergunsberg.comhttps://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2024/shows/osher-guensberg-ntnnnnGot suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

  • 915. 515: The undeniable Abbie Chatfield, on romance, reality and butt stuff

    01:23:42
    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 - you can check it out here - https://linktr.ee/itsalotpodI’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.MICF shows on sale now Tickets at oshergunsberg.comhttps://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2024/shows/osher-guensberg-ntnnnnGot suggestions for Better Than Yesterday?

  • 914. 'How Fascinating!'

    17:49
    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?
