Around the World One Story at a Time

Hey beautiful people!

Over the weekend I had the great pleasure of visiting Rockhampton & getting to know the one and only Jacquie Mackay. Her morning radio show is well worth a listen.

Thanks again, ABC Capricornia, for having me on the air! You can listen to the interview here:

Check it out!

Jacquie is an incredible human with a real talent for storytelling and storylistening. After the recording in studio, we talked about how the job of an interviewer is to be a conduit for story––not to interrupt the flow but to be there to redirect and keep a storyteller on course, if needed.

Water weaves through language in the most beautiful / surprising ways.

Later in the afternoon we meandered to the top of a mountain to see the Fitzroy River, a ribbon of gold from above.

It was lovely to see the inner-workings of the ABC studio, to learn about storytelling in the public broadcasting world (Jacquie, can I be you when I grow up?), and to be on the other side of the microphone for a change.

Jacquie also introduced me to this mug, which I love. Lovely!

For folks in Central Queensland, there’s a listing of ABC Radio frequencies here. Otherwise you can listen to Jacquie’s many interviews online at: http://www.abc.net.au/capricornia/programs/capricornia_breakfast/

I love the way that a radio in a home becomes like another person––the voices we choose to invite into our lives mean so much.

Long live public radio & the art of storytelling.
